I took this many years ago when my acne was at its worst, and I just recently started taking it again. It really does help calm your face down. I noticed that it helped control my oily skin, which in turned helped the acne because my pores weren't getting so clogged with oil and dirt. It wasn't effective as something that is made for treating acne, like when I took Acutane and it cured my acne for good, but it does make a difference. I have found a combo of the Ortho Tri-Cyclen, and using good facial products keeps my skin completely clear now. I never get acne anymore since the Acutane, but I get a few pimples around period time and have blackheads and oily skin to deal with still. I use only Dermalogica products and trust me, it is worth investing in. Each product is about $30-$50 but they last 6-8 months. I use the face wash, and the oil control lotion. With that daily, and a scrub to exfoliate once a week my skin is so soft and clear now. And if you can't afford that yet, just make sure whatever you buy has Salicylic acid in it. That's the best ingredient for clearing skin. I hope this helps you!
