How to Apply:
-Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying acne treatment
-Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily

-If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day

WARNINGS: For external use only. When using this product using other topical acne drugs at the same time or right after use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one drug should be used unless directed by physician. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

is this ok to use for my 13 yrs old daughter?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2012
Best Answer: I think all Kiehl's products are formulated for sensitive skin and are very gentle so I would not worry about it being too much. But there are other options for treating blemishes, Blue Herbal spot treatment is one designed for treating individual blemishes. It's a clear gel with Salicylic Acid and you can use it day and night. The Acne Blemish Control is great for using all over the face once or twice a day. I have used both and like them both! If you visit a Kiehl's freestanding store they would definitely love to help recommend the best products! 100% guarantee means you can't make the wrong decision!

I am thinking of buying this. I am using Blue Cleanser, Lotion, Moisturizer, so when would I use this product? Also what is the difference between this and herbal spot treatment?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2013
Best Answer: I found that the blue cleanser will dry up my acne / a bump on my face versus the daily-skin treatment that which overall reduced acne from coming back on my face.

Hi, would this combat keratosis pilaris? Thanks!
A shopper on Mar 25, 2013
Best Answer: No but I heard a crazy tip of what can help KP, I'm assuming the KP is on your body and not face. Exfoliate the area with Creme De Corps Soy Milk and Honey Scrub while in the shower. Moisturize with Creme De Corps lotion after the shower. Oddly enough, a dermatologist told my Kiehl's teacher that it has helped to decrease KP!!! I need to try it as well!

Is this safe to use for a 10 year old who has started getting some acne and pimples on her forehead?
A shopper on May 22, 2012
Best Answer: You can try, but her skin may be a little bit too sensitive, it can be too harsh for a young girl. Try using some natural products instead, because the composition of this treatment is too chemical for her young skin.

Can you use this skin-clearing treatment combined with proactive?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
Best Answer: I bought this product for my 24 year-old daughter. She lives out of the US. She has mild acne on her face and back. This product completely cleared up the acne. She told me it is very drying. My advice is try this product without Proactive. I believe that may too much. I definitely recommend this product (to be used alone). Hope this helps!

How long did it take you until you saw the first real improvements?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2013
Best Answer: Just overnight.
Keep in mind this is a spot treatment, only put it on the spot where you have blemish, and let it stay overnight. Usually it dries off the breakout and reduce the redness the other morning.

When should I use the Epidural Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion cream? I use it in the morning, but I'm not sure if I should wash my face first or not.
Negeen G on Apr 11, 2012
Best Answer: For the Micro-Dermabrasion cream, you should use it once a week at night, so you're skin is going to regenerate during the night, trust me it's the best moment for using it! And also, wash your face first, then apply the Micro-Dermabrasion cream and after apply a moisturizer.
