On the flip side a large number of users found that it irritated their skin, leaving it red, flaky and very dry.
Some also reported that they didn’t like the strong chemical smell.. It seems to be better received by the younger users (16-20), anybody over about 25 years old found that it was too drying for their skin..

There is a lot of chemical based compounds in this one, and to be honest, we aren’t a fan… you do need some help from chemicals when dealing with acne – especially moderate to severe breakouts, but nature has also given us a lot of useful ingredients that work without aggravating the skin, leaving it red, scaley and irritated as many users report after using this one…
We prefer to use and recommend products that take the best from science but couple it with natural ingredients.. these products do tend to be more gentle on the skin without compromising on effectiveness….
Exposed Skincare is one such product, US made, but now readily available across Australia, its makers have developed a well balanced blend of the best that science can provide along with effective, gentle and safe natural skin cleansing extracts that combine to make one of, if not the best all round acne treatment in the world… the products are sold individually or in special acne care packages – their entire range is protected by their 30 day ‘Clearer skin in 30 days or your money back’ guarantee.
