I get at least one huge pimple every month - before, during or after my period. Even though I don't pop them, they leave blemishes. I decided to try Benzac gel after seeing an advert on television. I applied it on Sunday evening and all that was left by Monday morning was a tiny and dried-up bump. Today is Tuesday, the tiny bump has almost disappeared and my skin is not blemished.
I had pimples as a teen but nothing major, however at 24 my face exploded with cystic acne. It's been a year of this suffering as an adult I find it ridiculous. After trying everything under the sun, I saw an ad for this product. After three days I can actually see my skin again! It cures adult acne!
