Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic cystic acne regimen For some reason, I started having cystic acne since last month due to my hormone change (PMS), it's huge and deep and of course painful. I've used salicylic acid for almost a month but it's not working much except drying my skin. Thank god, I bought this amazing lotion. The deep huge cystic spot reduced for more than half!!! Highly recommended for those who are suffering from cystic acne esp before period!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS STUFF WILL FOREVER BE IN MY HOME! I bought this a couple weeks ago in the hopes that it would dry out normal pimples since i was getting little bits of congestion around my lower chin area towards the side. I can say that it doesn't do anything to normal pimples it usually just dries the area around it a lot, but i wanted something just incase i get a cystic pimple! I am on the pill so cystic pimples don't really happen probably once or twice a year max, but i do get the occasional whitehead during that time of the month besides the point a couple of nights ago i felt a bump in my chin and i instantly knew it was a blind pimple i quickly put the lotion on at first sighting and then again before bed. The next day it was reduced more than 60% so the next night i did it again at night and it reduced completely altogether 100% and no mark or anything was left. I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS (but love reading them :P) but after this miracle worker I just had to. This is definitely something you should purchase if you're prone to acne/cystic acne, however i'd recommend using it the moment you sight a pimple not sure how well it works on cysts that have been there for a while as i said I don't really get them. Not to mention it will last ages as well since you only need two drops i make my palm into a little cup and drop two drops and get a clean finger and pat on the affected area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work, at all! I've tried this several times and it seems to have done the opposite of what it claims for me. I don't have cystic acne, but I do get the occasional stubborn breakout. I found that any spot I used it on stuck around for a good two weeks and was very red, and nothing would eliminate it, nor did it treat the breakout in any way. If it was effective, it'll last a long time and be good value for money like all of Mario's products. But I'm afraid it was a failure for me. I'll stick to the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta peels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! I bought this product about 2 months ago and it has been a game changer! I used to suffer from really bad hormonal cystic acne on my chin. To the point where I felt like I was never rid of it - as soon as one disappeared another appeard. After about 3 months of use, applying each night before I go to bed after my night skin care routine, I have not had any breakouts on my chin at all! At the beggining I used it as a spot treatment, but now as I haven't had any breakouts, I use it as a preventative measure. For anyone who gets those god awful monthly shiners, I cannot recommend this enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! I use this as a spot treatment for acne under the surface. It works quickly and doesn't dry the skin too much which is amazing. I usually find other brands can be overly drying. This is a must try for people who get deep pimples under the surface.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy with no nasty or overpowering smell. A must in my bathroom cupboard and my first go to when I feel a pimple coming up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further! I bought this product a few years ago and I've never looked back since! The shop assistant said that this was great for pimples under the skin and I was quite prone to them at the time so I thought I'd give this ago along with the drying lotion. Let me tell you, I've only had about 1 under the skin pimple since the time I've used this product. (And this was because I went without for a few weeks) I use this everyday and night, rub it on the areas I'm prone to getting acne and there you go. My skin hardly breaks out! I honestly recommend this product by far, maybe even more than the drying lotion!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average at best I bought this product about a month ago and had higher hopes than results. The potent smell gave me high hopes too, I thought something that smelt so strong must pack a punch but not so much. No real result from this product, but no harsh effects either so I'll persist when blind pimpl arise.
