Rated 1 out of 5 by from burns I use other La Roche Posay products and were happy with them so I expected this to be just as good but this burned my face soo bad, very painful. I used this for like 4 days, only a tiny dot of it each time, there’s dry patches and rashes on my face now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAVED MY SKIN I struggled for such a long time with my skin and could not figure out why my stubborn acne would not go away. i changed my diet, drank more water, and exercised more but nothing worked! I tried all the ordinary products, but the salicylic acid burned my skin and I felt hopeless. I saw this in Ulta and decided to give it a shot. BEST decision of my life. I have been using this for about 4 days and I am soooo happy with my results and will genuinely buy this again! THANK YOU LAROCHE POSAY!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ADVISORY FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS & RUN A TEST SPOT I really loved this product, seen results within the first day. I was having new breakouts on my chin and cheeks. I was never one to breakout through puberty or growing up until recently. I have been under a lot of stress with STEM courses, so when I saw breakout I rushed to Ulta and was desperate for immediate results. Sure enough it worked, my redness settled and inflammation lessened. I started to apply the medication 2x daily, then 3x and then noticed that it was too much for my skin. I chemically burned my skin with this product by being too abrasive. SOOOOO here I am 3 days later, can't apply absolutely nothing onto my face not even a moisturizer, spf, GENTLE face wash. It's so sensitive, dry and tight, all day long. Horrible feeling. My facial expressions are limited because it feels so tight. I am lathered in petroleum jelly right now. It's the only thing that has given me comfort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burns my Skin I wanted this product to work. I noticed a dryness on the first day after use, by day 3 the skin around my eyes and eyelids began burning and swelling, and I didn’t even apply there. Please be careful when using.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May give negative reaction Used this for the first time last night only on visible pimples and woke up with the surrounding area being inflamed. It looks like a rash on my cheek. Thankfully, I work from home so no one needs to see my face today. I won't use this as instructed (1-3 times a day) because it seems like it'll further irritate the area. Not sure if I need to wait a couple of days before reapplying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok I think this helped to clear up some closed comedones on my cheeks but it burned SO bad and my skin would turn red when I used it, especially after I put moisturizer on. I went from having oily skin to incredibly dry and flaky skin
