Yes I would say it works. But honestly Sephora is amazing about their refund policy. If you are worried about spending $45, don't because if it doesn't work for you, just return it for a full refund!

My acne is very stubborn too. I tried a Murad product and it made my bumps worse. I tried this and it worked a little. I went back to Proactive and have used now for four weeks and all my bumps and blemishes are 98% gone. I found that if you put this right on your bumps it takes three or four days to make them go away. If you put it on an area that does not have a bump, you will get one in the next day.

I have stubborn bumps too and in the morning the bumps were less noticeable. But it is hard to layer under makeup so I only use at night. Bumps are back, for me, during the day if I don't use it.

This product worked great for me. I had lots of tiny little bumps on my forehead that, thanks to my freckles, you couldn't see, but felt really gross. I use just a really sheer layer daily and it got rid of the bumps and is keeping my skin clear.

Sub-surface bumps sound like clogged pores/whiteheads. I have these on my cheeks and forehead. Every time I try to squeeze them out, I end up irritating them and turning them into inflamed cystic pimples which hurt a lot and end up hyperpigmented. I don't think PTR works completely for underskin bumpiness. I would suggest getting a facial to clean out the pores and using PTR for prevention. Hope this helps.

NO, this is not going to help you. Your problem is most likely caused from using too much product, most likely a moisturizer of some sort. I know exactly the type of "bumps" you are referring to. Very common and most women think they are a form of acne. Wrong. You need to exfoliate regularly (I love Exfolikate, Kate Sommerville), pricey but well worth it, will last you a long time, do this once a week to start then up it to twice. You should start seeing a difference within 3-4 weeks at least. BUT make sure that when you put your serum and moisturizer on that you are using the appropriate amount. Also make sure you are using the appropriate product types for your skin (dry, combo, oily). If the product isn't fully penetrated (still feels wet or your still rubbing it in) within 10 seconds you are using too much. Good rule of thumb.

It helps me. But my preference is always to get the junk out of my skin, which this solution does not support. This solution suppresses the underskin pimples so that you can't pop them. They get smaller, painless, and invisible within 2 to 3 days depending on the severity of the underskin pimple. After that I can only feel them when I touch the spot that was treated. It takes a while for the underskin pimple to completely be gone (but it is not visible nor it is painful at that time).
