AC 5 Gel 40g A perfect product for those of us who suffer with adult acne. My teenage daughter uses it too and we have both found it to be effective in the drying out of pimples as well as very quickly reducing the size of those horrid acne bumps. I call it First Aid for blemishes and am never without at least one tube!
