Cleanse skin thoroughly and tone before applying. Cover the affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Follow with your moisturizer if desired. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Spot Treatment This product does what it's intended to do. It's a great spot treatment for inflamed pimples (read: red pimples). It goes on creamy & dries fast & wears well under makeup, which is the first of its kind I've seen, as sulfur-based products usually get dry & crusty on the skin. It reduces pimples overnight without excessively drying or irritating the skin like benzoyl peroxide tends to do (but there is some inevitable drying). I have adult acne that is mild in quantity-frequency of breakouts, but I can get rather large, painful pimples & this reduces not only their size, but also the pain. I rather enjoy the sulfur smell - it's mild & feels "clean".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally. Something works!! Might seem a little over the top to say this, but this product has changed my life. I've had acne since I was fifteen and I have literally tried probably a hundred things. I am now 31 and THIS. IS. IT. Finally!!! I could cry at my relief that something is saving my skin. My skin is almost totally clear now and the scars finally have a chance to fade. Thank you THANK YOU!!!! (I use a thin layer on my whole face every night. This is more than directed, but my skin is oily and this seems to be working. I also have sensitive skin and this doesn't burn the way the acids and peroxides did. Yippeeee!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product This is absolutely the best product for me, and my husband. For some reason as we continue in our "Golden Years" both of us get a little breakout. Me, I get little hard bumps under the skin. I put a dot of this on the place, and walla, it shrinks it, or makes it go husband had a sore bump that appeared on his ear, I gave him this, and after a few uses, it to disappeared. So worth the money to keep on hand..I bought another tube for me since my husband took mine. I will not be without it. I have good skin for the age. Love DHC products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strong odor I am a loyal DHC user and I LOVE several of their products, but this was not one of them. I don't know whether it works on acne or not because I did not try it long enough to find out. The reason is because the odor was so strong that my mom asked me what that smell was and politely mentioned that maybe I needed to take a shower; my husband noticed it also. Then I had to wash my clothes several times to get the odor out of them (I used it on several spots on my back and chest). Maybe it would not be noticeable if you only use it very occasionally and only on a very few blemishes. Sorry. It just was not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I occasionally get acne on my chin & forehead (I'm in my late 30's) and have tried at lease 5 different types of acne spot treatments. Some of them left me dry and flaky skin with post-acne scars which takes forever to heal. I received a sample of this spot therapy few days ago and decided to give it a try on a enormous acne (before it gets worse). I didn't experience any discomfort such as burning or stinging but I also didn't put much hope on it. After a good night's sleep and just like that, my acne went away. Pimple and inflammation are gone, it never reach its maturity. I continue to use it for the next couple of days just in case and not only it works great but it never irritating my skin. Thumbs up for this product and goodbye to the post-acne scar treatment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Acne spot therapy I tried this product after watching skin tutorial bya young lady named Gianna on YouTube with beautiful skin. She mentioned that it zapped overnight zits in a couple of days. I ordered it immediately and have fallen in like with the DHC line. The pimple cream did work but must be used along with a skin routine, such as face wash, exfoliating, applying astringent and then applying product. Along with this product I receive four small samples. So far I may go back for their eye cream which I used at night and it just felt nourishing to the eye. I also used their daily face scrub which left my skin feeling exfoliated and baby soft. Definitely a product line that deserves a chance in the beauty line spotlight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good alternative to drugstore brands I have persistent adult acne, sometimes worse, sometimes gone for months, but basically, I always have to have acne products in my bathroom cabinet. I use a prescription retin-a cream but it doesn't do anything for breakouts that occur, it only helps prevent most breakouts. I had a prescription medication for breakouts but I ran out. Over the counter benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid do nothing for me. I really should go back to the dermatologist and get the real medication re-prescribed but in the meantime I noticed that this product contains sulfur rather than benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, so I decided to try it. Turns out, sulfur definitely works better for me than those other ingredients. So, this is a good backstop product for me to have.
