I am 28 and I still have hormonal acne. I've used clinique since I was about 15. This stuff you can literally feel it tightening, cleaning your pores. It really helps zits pop. I had this awful cystic type zit on my chin it was there for over a week recently, I tried the clinique spot treatment but that wasn't quite cutting it. I used this mask one time (I was out I had to reorder it) and it popped afterwards, finally. If I used this every day I'd probably have totally clear skim but it is a tad drying so I try to just use it every other day or when I'm broken out. I hope they never discontinue this.
