This product seems gentle, but It's kind of harsh. Your skin is breaking out because of hormonal imbalances, not because of something directly skin related. I'd try something a little softer.

You are probably getting acne for a couple of reasons: fluctuating hormones, less sleep, more stress, diet to name a few. Also, when using a new skin treatment you can sometimes break out more at first as the treatment purges all the sebum from your pores. Try to drink plenty of water, keep away from greasy foods, dairy and peanuts can be triggers as well. I've heard taking a probiotic can help too.

Mine got worse before it got better too. It took a solid 3 weeks. It was worth the headache though. My skin texture is greatly imprved and the breakouts monthly are fewer and heal faster. I use the DDF 5% BP with it at night.

Mine did too after my baby and I started using this and it has been my lifeline, it's made it much much better, my skin is flawless. I would check with your dr or dermatologist.

After I used this product my acne started clearing out. I have thick oily skin
so probably my skin can with-stand more or stronger medicine. I can use
up to 4% to 6% salicylic acid at night to keep my skin clear, and it works.
I have been using this product for about one month. In my opinion there are probably much better products for acne out there. My skin got worse initially and I cut back to using it only once a day and it is about back to where it was before starting the use of this product. I am committing to using it for a few more weeks to see if any improvement is made. I used the same products for 10 years prior to changing and feel like I need to give the new products a chance to work.
