WOW. good product
The best and strongest Persol Gel. I have ever found. After my hysterectomy, I had severe acne on my back for a few years.Persol was the only thing that seemed to help it. But It had to be a very strong (2%) dose and even then it only helped a little. I tried this and within 2 days my back was completely clear of acne and as long as I keep using it, it has not returned.
It comes out like vaseline, so if you have oily skin you will want to put this on at night, however, after a while it seems to absorb very well without residue. The first few times you use this, you might feel a burning sensation which will subside.
It really is the best and most well made Persol Gel of this type I have found with or without prescription.
I tried the Differin and all the other acne gels on here and none compared to this gem.
