I saw an immediate effect after using the spot treatment. Applied the cream only on active acne/ acne scars at night and the next morning itself I saw an amazing effect. Scars had faded significantly and active acne also shrank a lot and became a lot less red. Not drying like the hydrogen peroxide or retinol creams which dermatologists suggest. The only two factors not great are that it's sticky which I don't mind that much but it could get better. And second being that it's too pricey. Got it on sale but without sale I don't think I'll spend so much. Love the face wash. It's the only one I use. After trying it just once, I was hooked. Has little granules for mild exfoliation which is great. Love the green tea line.
