    This skin care line is life saving. Every time I have used it, I’ve immediately noticed a huge difference and when i am not using SLMD, my skin goes back to how it was- dry, red, irritated breakouts. This line is absolutely amazing and I️m so thankful for I.T. Within days, my skin went back to its natural moisture, dark, red spots disappeared, and no Whitehead’s or blackheads reappeared. I.T also cleared up two cysts within days. Highly recommend!!!!

    Finally happy to say that I’ve found something that works!
    I had tried other systems, natural products and prescribed medications to try and get on top of my acne. Within 2 weeks my skin was starting to clear and after a month, I haven’t had any major breakouts (even leading up to my period!), and my skin is the softest its ever been!
    Buying my second kit now and also ordering the body kit!

    I had really high hopes for this product as I am an avid follower of slmdskin care on social media. While I really did not want to spend $70+ on more skincare products just to have my skin stay the same again I wanted to try this product since I saw so many positive reviews, so I splurged. I followed the acne starter kit routine to a T and even took videos and pictures along the way hoping I’d be able to send in my success story. While the cleanser felt nice the system yielded negative results for me. My systic acne along my jawline actually got worse. I’m not saying it was from the system but what I am saying is that it did not work for me after a month of consistent use. I actually kept using past the 30 days to see if maybe I’d just take longer to adjust but ultimately gave up because my skin was not improving. Their customer service reps could only advise me to see my dermatologist. If I knew there were people it didn’t work for I would probably have not ordered it as I’d have known that it would be a waste of more money because the dermotologist can’t even help me. My acne is moderate with occasional severe flare ups I would say so I felt like this system should have helped at least fade the redness of some pimples. The picture of my skin after 30 days of use speaks for itself. Unfortunately to add a photo or video you need a URL and I’m not sure how to do that, but just don’t get your hopes up too high only to be let down again like me

    I absolutely loved this product and would have continued using it for years to come. Unfortunately, just before my college graduation, everything went out of stock. I couldn’t get the cleanser by itself or literally anything else at all. I was “SOL” with very few options but to just wait. Of course, I went exactly one week without the product and my entire face broke out before I was scheduled to walk the stage and appear in hundreds of photos. GREAT. I did some research and found out that this isn’t the first time this has happened with SLMD products?? The same issue was discussed in 2015. I was thoroughly disappointed since it worked so well and really cleared up all my skin issues within two weeks of starting it. I just can’t handle the thought and stress of having this product go out of stock before another major event in my life. If there was a guarantee that returning customers would be served before new customers or that there was a lot of buffer stock available, I’d switch back to SLMD in a heartbeat. In the meantime, I’m using Exposed and it is working really well for me.

    So a little about my struggle with acne – in high school I had the normal breakouts here and there, nothing unusual, then when I was about 20, I developed horrible cystic acne. I was on birth control, tried all kinds of dermatologist prescription creams, pills, nothing worked. I went on accutane when I was 24 and I know it’s horrible but it cleared my skin up so great in like 6 months. Fast forward to when I turned 26 and I was right back at square one. Horrible cystic acne and I felt like it was even worse. I decided not to go on accutane again since its so horrible for your body and the side effects were nasty (I still feel like I have eye damage from the accutane but that’s another story). My sister got me hooked onto Dr pimple popper and i started following her Instagram (so addicting). I saw her skin care line and figured why not, I’ve tried everything else (murad, proactive, Neutrogena you name it) so it’s been about a month and the results are real people!! I’ve noticed the biggest difference in my skin and I’ve had minimal new pimples pop up. I’ve even noticed some wrinkles are starting to fade (I’m 27 now) I can’t wait for the kids to restock, I will be buying the 90 day kit now

    I ordered this product with not many expectations and let me tell you its one of the only systems that has actually done something for my skin. I have suffered from acne for 15 years. I’ve tried everything (I mean EVERYTHING) and been on Accutane twice. After my last round of Accutane (about 1 yr ago) my acne started to come back which was devastating. I most recently tried a very expensive medical grade acne system, which didn’t work, and replaced it with SLMD. I know everyone’s skin is different, but this system has worked wonders for me. The first couple weeks I didn’t see much improvement but around week 3 my acne started to clear up and the best thing of all is it has actually controlled my hormonal acne (what the WHAT)!. My advice is to give it a shot and wait 3-4 weeks before you make up your mind about it….you could be very pleasantly surprised.

    Wow wow wow. this stuff is absolutely amazing. I never had horrible horrible acne but i never had clear skin. I’ve always had an irregular period so that already messed with my hormones. i got the nexplanon birth control and that really messed with my skin i then got the mirena and well yup, messed with my skin. I’ve been to the dermatologist and seriously tried everything. (trenoinal cream, clindminsin, neutrogena, proactive, clean and clear, burts bees, alba, african black soap, tea tree everything, cetaphil, biore, organic stuff ectt) you name it ive tried it. Anyways i started developing cystic acne on my chin and a lot around my cheeks. i started using this stuff and it made it better, had some breakouts but eventually went away. I’ve never once since i turned 14 (i’m 20 now) not worn makeup to out because i’m so self conscious that that’s all people are looking at. Today i wear mascara and that’s about it. sometimes powder. my scars have disappeared too from cystic acne. I feel finally beautiful in my own skin 😭 i’ve also actually had the face wash for a month in a half using twice a day with a couple days missed! highly recommend. and don’t think this stuff will take your acne away 100% because you will break out here and there but maybe one every other week and if so it’ll be gone so quick. but i still go makeupless because this is all i’ve ever wanted. thank you Dr Sandra Lee

    It lasted more than 30 days! I’m still using it and I’ve had this for over a month! It has cleared my skin so much! I still have scars and some deep acne that will soon go away but with only one month of this system, I’ve never been so impressed!

    I have used every type of cleanser, face wash, mask, ect. I finally ordered this and after a week I had compliments from family and friends. If you stick with the routine you will see results. I will never use anything else! I have used this for a month and now I’m waiting for it to restock! Thank you for saving my skin.

    I’ve been using this product for 2.5 weeks and my skin as broken out worse than before. But, normally my breakouts take a week to form a white head but with slmd I’ve noticed they turn white overnight. I don’t know if that’s a sign that it’s cleaning out the pours, but I’m hoping this system brings everything to the surface then clears it up (like most acne products). So as of right now I’m sure if this product is working or making my skin worse. I will update my review in another 2 weeks!

    Best system I’ve used ever! Been suffering with hormonal acne for since I turned 30 last year and this has worked the best! I’m currently waiting for it to restock and I already have started breaking out again, so I guess I’ll have to order the entire system again. But it’s so worth it! before and after pictures on my IG evaabaybee

    I am 41 year old that had porcelain skin through my 20s. At 35 I had a devastating skin infection (ecoli was the dx) that left me fighting cystic acne since. They are large and painful. Working in the medical field i am the first face you see before the doctor. I have been self conscious on several occasions and try not making eye contact when I feel that these thing could almost speak for me. I have been on this system for 2 months now…and it has been a game changer. I do have hormonal break out on occasion but SLMD has literally made them NOT painful and less embarrassing IF One or two pop up. But its manageable not AT ALL what i used to go through! This is the best thing that has happened to me in 6 years!. My pores are smaller. My skin is soft to the touch. Best of all NO PAIN! THANK YOU Dr. Lee!

    I’ve always had great skin til I turned 35! I began breaking out here and there, with rosacea in a few spots. The acne cleanser works well and the day & night creams seem to work, I think. The facial moisturizer however broke me out more than ever!!! I stopped using the moisturizer all together and my face is slowly clearing up from the outbreak. Not really pleased with the overall product.

    My skin started to change when I turned 30 and I stopped getting just pimples but now I get whiteheads all over my forehead, black heads, and cystic acne. This product is the only thing that has cleared my acne without over drying. My whiteheads are disappearing and my cystic acne is gone. I can’t say enough good things about this product! I am just so sad that it is out of stock. I am on all the wait lists, though! 😉

    I don’t have a sensitive skin, never had allergic reactions before . I started using the kit and after a few days I got allergy like spots around my chin. Didn’t want to waste all of that money I spent on this kit so I continue using it sometimes . Thought maybe it’s not the kit, maybe something else. Today I got another allergy reaction right after I put moisturizer on my face .

    I have PCOS, so I have severe hormonal cystic acne on my face along my jaw line, which is so hard to treat. And pretty sensitive skin. I’ve gone to dermatologists, tried Proactive, Neutrogena, Acnevir, holistic approach to acne, and countless other products…NOTHING worked! I am a HUGE fan of the Dr. Pimple Popper videos and Dr. Sandra Lee herself. After reading the reviews and speaking to customer service (who was great to deal with) I decided to order the 30 day supply. I have never been happier with how my skin feels and looks. The texture of my skin is so much smoother, and have yet to have another large painful pimple come up on my face! My face is still healing from previous acne and discoloration, but it’s so nice to feel confident again. It doesn’t dry out my sensitive skin either. Friends and coworkers have commented on how clear my skin looks now. Totally worth giving it a try if you’ve suffered from acne. So happy with the products!

    Honestly, I had high hopes for this product. It did a great job of taming inflammation but the red spots were still there. I tried this system for quite some time and it just didn’t deliver what I was expecting. It gave great results in the beginning but just maintained my red spots. I’m going to try something new

    So I was super excited to try these products. I was looking at reviews over the course of 2-3 weeks when I finally decided to purchase.
    I was really eager and I took pictures on the very first day I started using (4/4/18) and today (4/17/18) when I had to stop because of throbbing and burning pain on my face from a rash I developed.
    I was only applying concealer and mascara for the two weeks to avoid irritating my face. I admit I did fall asleep one night without washing my face thoroughly, but overall, I tried to stick with the regimen. Unfortunately, these products didn’t work for me. I have cystic acne and develop deep nodules. scar easily, and have sensitive skin. I hope it works for everyone else, just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work for someone else.

    I love Dr. Lee, but this product was horrible. The cleanser had a nice consistency but it smells terrible! Very medicinal. I am lucky enough to not get the cystic pimples……UNTIL I used this product. I have large, painful pimples all over my chin and cheeks now. The sunscreen burned my eyes even though I was careful not to get it near them, it migrated. Very Disappointed. The worst part? you can’t return it if it’s been opened! Some of the results I’ve seen are amazing, but this made my skin look and feel terrible. If you want to take a chance, go for it! but if you think there is any chance it might not work for you and you need that $50 in your pocket, look elsewhere.

    I’ve been using this product for a week and am in love ! My skin wasn’t horrible but did have cystic acne especially on my forehead. After a couple days I could already see an improvement and after a week my ance is almost completely gone. I did have some redness and on my checks ( I have sensitive skin to begin with ) this was quickly taken care of with a hydrating mask and reducing the number of times I used this product for a day or two. I will continue to use this proudct as I finally found something that works and doesn’t completely dry out my face.

    At first I was disappointed but the wait was worth it! The first week or two didn’t show much improvement. It’s been a full month now and my skin is totally different! I have dry skin and hormonal acne but it keeps my skin hydrated and even prevented the deep acne I get every month! I would recommend this to anyone, but be patient! I ordered the 60 day kit early because I needed a little more moisturizer than the Day and Night treatments.

    I never struggled with acne growing up! When I hit those awkward junior high and high school years I actually had flawless skin!!! I received acne on my 21st birthday…NO JOKE. Immediately once I hit my 20’s I started to get “adult acne”. It was like acne just came out of no where for me!! I am now 26, and I am STILL struggling with adult acne… Fortunately, I do not struggle with acne all over my face. My acne is ONLY located on my chin. I had the worse flare up a few years ago…the pain was unbarable, my whole chin was inflammed, and I am pretty sure infected. I had absolutely no idea what made my chin acne so severe, but after eventually recovering from the infection it has now left my chin scarred. I don’t know what I hate the most…the acne or scars??! For 5-6 years now I feel like I have tried it all!! I was put on several different Rx from my dermatologists, but they never worked for me. I have tried products like Proactive, Clear Pore, Rodan + Fields, Shani Darden, etc. A few did work but then pooped out after a week of diligent use. Fast forward to 26 year old me now, and I came across SLMD because I am a huge PP fan lol!! I chose the 30 day trial, of course, to test it out first! These products are legit. I was very surpised how clean my face looked and felt after my first wash with the cleanser. I didnt know my face was that dirty lol!! I have just started using it, and I already see positive results without drying my face out…miracle!!! The redness and amount of acne has significantly reduced! I still have a long way to go I feel, especially with quite a bit of scarring, but I am hoping these products will in time aid in my scarring! So far, so good!!

    Struggled with acne for 10+ years. Like a lot of people, I feel like I’ve tried everything under the sun – including Accutane. Nothing seemed to truly work for my skin. Although I’ve only been using the SLMD Acne system for a week now, my skin has improved so much & is almost completely clear. I will keep using but this is the most improvement I’ve ever seen within just a week of using new products. Went from feeling like I needed to wear a full face of makeup everyday to hide blemishes, to just wearing a little tinted moisturizer & having my skin look healthy & flawless. Please give this a try! Will be buying full size products once I run out of my starter kit.

I have tried every product you can think of, every natural remedy, creams, prescribed pills and i’ve even tried laser treatments by dermatologist! Nothing has worked for me, trying all of these products has caused me to fall in love with taking care of my skin and looking into products. Ever since I have used the SLMD skincare 30 days system… My skin is as clear as ever, I don’t have a single bump! My redness is also gone and my skin appearance is so much smoother! I seriously have the skin I’ve been dreaming for in 30 days that’s ive been trying to achieve for YEARS. I live by these products and have suggested it to so many other people! I am currently ordering alllllll big bottles from this 30 day system plus more. Please don’t ever discontinue this product nor change the ingredients. This has changed my life im sure as well others! It would be amazing if there was a body wash as well for people with body acne! Lol but thank you guys so much! I’m a LIFETIME customer

    The first two weeks of use this system made my acne much worse and it also made my face red and painful. I stuck through it and on week three my acne was back to normal and after 30 days my acne hasn’t changed. For $50 I expected at least some improvement! I’m very disappointed in these products!

    Different products work for different people. This product worked wonders for me! I have always been struggling with mild acne and there was never anything that really helped. I was skeptical when ordering this because I thought it would be another kit that wouldn’t work, although when I started using it I was pleasantly surprised. I had the kit for about over a month, and only got one breakout since. This product worked for me and I’m so happy I tried it.

    I’ve never suffered from really severe acne, but there has always been the usual breakouts and constant blackheads on my nose. Figured I’d give this acne system a try (even though other acne systems never helped). It had the same affect as the other systems did. I ended up having really dried out and red skin, even when I was simply using it once, every other day. This may be the perfect solution for someone who suffered from a more severe case of acne, but for me, it didn’t work. I’ll go back to simply using my normal soap wash and toner regimen.

    I have struggle with acne all througout my teenage years. I though it would go away eventually but never has. I have tried everything out there like proactive, all natural products, and over the counter items but nothing has worked. Until now, SLMD has changed my skin. I haven’t even finished the 30-day kit yet and I already see a difference. It not only helps with the new acne but scaring from past breakouts. I would recommend these products to anyone. It’s totally work every penny!!

    I never had any trouble with acne until shortly after I turned 23. They seemed to just pop up all at once and out of nowhere. I wasn’t even entirely sure it was acne because most of them appeared to be small red bumps with no visible Whitehead or blackhead. After seeing a dermatologist several times and confirming that it was in fact acne, he prescribed me varies creams and even said I was a candidate for Accutane. Not wanting to put my entire body through that, yet not having any success with any topical medicines, I just didn’t know what to do anymore. I should have taken a “before” picture, but I was even skeptical this would work. It has only been three days, but I can already say that my skin looks shockingly better. Overall redness has started to subside, most of the bumps have started to disappear, and the overall texture of my skin hasn’t felt this good in a very long time. I’m so thankful I took the chance on this acne system!! It was is worth every penny! Thank you Dr. Lee!!!

    I’ve tried every acne wash and kit out there. I used to struggle with cystic acne and after being on acutane I finally got rid of it, but continued to have blackheads, regular breakouts, etc. After using thing for a month, my face is more clear than its ever been. I recommend this to anyone struggling with acne, whether you have sensitive skin (like me), oily, combo, or dry skin, it’ll work for everyone. I’ll be buying the full size from now on. Thank you Dr. Lee for such an amazing product!!

    I’m 24 and have been using acne-fighting skin products since I was 11. My acne was at its worst at age 22-23. I have tried every type of acne product available, all across the spectrum of cost and availability (drug store vs doctor prescribed, etc).

    My skin problems are that I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have a lot of tiny comedones in my T-zone (mostly chin) that are there all the time and hard to see until they flare up into white heads or cystic acne. Acne products irritate my skin very easily and make everything inflamed and worse. Then I would wear makeup to even everything out and hide the acne (mostly hiding red marks from past acne, actually) which creates more comedones, vicious cycle.

    SLMD experience: I started noticing positive changes within 1 week. First thing I could tell was how even my skin tone was becoming. No more redness and the past acne marks were fading. I got a few white heads here and there because I still had comedones, but they were NOT turning cystic anymore at all! Which was awesome. Also they were reducing in number a lot. After about 3 weeks I felt completely confident not wearing any face makeup. Now this is not to say my skin looked perfect, but it was even and clear enough to where I was willing to put up with wearing no makeup during the work week to accelerate my progress (I wore makeup during social outings about once a week). After 1 month all pimples and acne were virtually gone and skin was looking so even. Now I’m at about 6 weeks (with the 30 day kit) and I just ordered the 60-day kit. My skin hasn’t been this good since pre-puberty!! I wish I had pictures but I never took a “before” shot.

    Tips: People have complained about the pumps on the 30-day kit– this is because the “pump straw” goes to the flat end of the tube but it looks as if it is made to stand on the cap end. This causes product to settle away from the straw. I stored the tubes laying flat rather than standing them on their caps and never had issues with the pumps after the first use. They should fix that bottle design, though. Be super diligent about removing makeup before washing your face or exercising/wearing as little foundation as possible, cleaning makeup brushes, and washing pillow cases. Also if you talk on the phone with it held up to your face, disinfect it often with alcohol swabs.

    My only complaint is that I wish the acne kits had the option to come with the moisturizer that has sunscreen in it, or came with a half-quantity of non-SPF and SPF moisturizers.

    I would recommend this stuff to everyone I know.

    I’ve always had blackheads on my nose and would get pimples occasionally. The past year or so my acne has flared up off and on becuase of my birth control. I mainly had cystic acne and nothing helped at all. At first I was AMAZED by this system. I used it at night for the first time woke up and all my pimples literally VANISHED off my face I was freaking out. As the day went on my face started to get really itchy and red, I thought great finally found something that clears up my acne and I’m allergic to it. Then I looked at what was in the products and realized the acne lotion contains benzoyl peroxide which I am allergic to. THANK GOD that was all and I am able to use the rest of the system. It works great to combat my acne and oily skin.
    The cleanser works great, can be drying which is why you need to use the moisturizer.
    The clarifying treatment goes on well and really helps to keep my pimples at bay if one is forming.
    The facial moisturizer smells really weird at first but you get used to it. I’ve always searched for a moisturizer that does its job but also isn’t to oily for my skin. This is the best I have found yet! It goes on and spreads easily/evenly. It feels kinda oily at first so I thought oh boy, but it absorbs and dries very quickly. Leaving my skin moisturized perfectly without any dry or oily spots.
    I haven’t always stuck perfectly to washing my face every morning and night and I always regret it. If I do not stuck to the routine my face will break out, the system does not vanish my break outs right away, but helps to get rid of them quicker. I am definitely going to reorder full size products of the cleanser, clarifying treatment, and facial moisturizer. It’s a bummer I’m allergic to the acne lotion, makes me wonder if I was able to use it would this system work even better?

    I had high expectations for this system, and used it religiously for 2 months, but it has not stopped my breakouts one bit. The products feel nice and gentle on my skin, and I still use the moisturizer every day, but I have stopped using the other products and switched to taking vitamin a, zinc, and probiotics. It seems that my skin is finally starting to clear up.

    I have struggled with acne since I was 12 years old, and tried pretty much everything to fix it. Some treatments did alright, but mostly just left my face feeling dry, red, and irritated. It really brought my confidence down, and there were times when I would look in the mirror and feel like crying because I had so many pimples and blemishes.
    Then, after seeing so many amazing before and after results on Dr. Sandra Lee’s Instagram, I decided to try SLMD.
    I was not disappointed. SLMD has made my skin feel smooth, soft, and pimple-free. I love this product and the confidence it has brought back into my life. I feel like I can go makeup-free more and not worry about what others might think of my skin. I highly recommend it to everyone. My mom says that my complexion has never looked better, and I agree. Thank you so much!!

    I’ve only just begun using this today and loved the cleanser (I felt like it actually helped control my oil without over drying!) but when I went to use the night time retinol gel, the pump was broken.

    After suffering from acne for years and trying literally EVERYTHING, I was feeling like I was at a total loss. My skin was so broken out, oily with dry spots all over, red… just angry looking. My mom finally convinced me to try this because she loves Dr. Pimple Popper and says she trusts her. So I gave the product a shot and OH MY GOSH. I’m not kidding when I say I saw major differences in my complexion and just the texture of my skin in just a couple of days. I feel like the majority of my breakouts are gone now after a couple of weeks and I can tell my scaring is reducing as well. I could not be more pleased. I’ve never had anything work this well. My skin feels softer than I ever remember it being! I am so happy and so thankful for this skincare regimen. Honestly life changing.

    I started getting acne at the age of 16 but it got really bad when I started college. Suddenly I was breaking out all over my cheeks and started to develop cystic acne along my jaw. I struggled for 4 years trying product after product to ease the redness and try to stop the acne, only to have it flare up all over again. It was hard to feel beautiful with all these little red bumps all over my face so I wouldn’t leave my house without some form of makeup on to cover it up. But I can happily say that this stuff really works! In just 30 days my skin looks so much clearer and feels so much better! I can’t wait to keep going with this product now that I know it actually works!

    I’ve always had acne like throughout all of high school it was always bad but not too bad ya know. Then for some unknown reason after I turned 19, my acne got out of control, it got terrible, it was out of control! Then I had always followed Dr. Lee on IG so I decided to give it a shot, I see other people post their results about how great it has been for them but I’ve been using SLMD Skin Care for 3 months but my acne is worse than its ever been. I don’t know whether to blame the product but it definitely hasn’t helped me at all, I just don’t know what to do anymore My self-confidence is at an all-time low, there are times where I don’t even wanna go outside because of how my face looks. Below are pictures of my face before and after I started using SLMD three months apart.

    When I first started using this product I found myself very impatient to see results. You DEFINITELY have to give it 3 weeks to allow it to do its magic. Once 3 weeks hit I saw a complete difference. This kit is perfect, it never dried my skin out and I noticed I only use the moisturizer in the morning and that is plenty for my skin type. I am happy to say I finally found a skincare routine at age 24 that works wonders for my skin and no harsh side effects.

    I’ve tried everything! Ive struggled with blackheads ever since I turned 13 and what made it worse is that I loved popping them! I constantly watch Sandra’s videos on extracting blackheads and love them. I started trying several products and after 3-4 months of no results with these products I would be upset but move on to the next until I finally found SLMD! I’ve been using for almost 6 weeks and it’s helped so much! I will continue to purchase and recommend!

    I love this system! I’m 55+ and haven’t had clear skin for over 8 years, until now. I have oily/combination skin that has been shiny since puberty. I’ve rarely worn moisturizer, unless maybe at night because anything I try immediately looks greasy on my face. The SLMD products make my skin feel clean and hydrated, but leave me with a matte finish, which I love! And I use just a tiny bit of the acne lotion and sunscreen. If I get what seems to be a new pimple forming, I apply some Acne Spot Treatment and it’s disappeared by morning. I feel like my skin’s texture and pores have really improved in the 6 weeks or so that I’ve been using it.

    After struggling with little bumps, whiteheads and serious acne scarring, this product has transformed my skin. I have combination skin, which is just so hard to find a balance for. Acne washes tend to dry my skin, and gentle washes tend to leave my skin still feeling dirty. The texture is so soft and hydrated now. Pimples will disappear over night and your face feels so clean. The system is so easy to use and I honestly look forward to washing my face morning/night! Only complaint is shipping takes 7+ days.

    Oh my god. I wish I had this product for the past 5 years! I had moderate acne with mostly just black/white heads and small breakouts around my mouth up until I tried this product! I purchased this 30-day “starter kit” and it lasted me 60/70 days because i used half the recommended sizes (I do not like to overly use product). It worked so well – reduces redness, minimizes breakouts, and my blackheads are practically gone on my nose! I am about to order my second kit with SLMD skincare and I couldn’t be any more excited!

    One word: AMAZING. I have struggled with acne from the smallest to largest amounts for 10+ years and nothing from store bought to prescription helped. I read the reviews and was a little nervous knowing everyone’s skin is different with different products but I knew I had to try this! The products do not have a strong odor, doesn’t leave your face feeling caked on with creams or feel oily/dry. I would honestly recommend these products to anyone and am really thinking of canceling my first ever dermatology appointment. Although, my one complaint along with others are the pumps on the clarifying treatment and lotion but that won’t stop me from continuing with these products.

    I don’t have any complaints with this product! The one thing I have noticed since I have started using these products is my skin is not as oily/ shiny as it used to be. This formula does not dry out my skin (every other drugstore product I have tried has dried out my skin and then made it look super oily later in the day).
    Will definitely be buying the full size bottles soon!

    For years I’ve struggled with acne on an off. I’ve used a wide variety of OTC treatments and medications prescribed by my MD. I took a chance on this product about 4 weeks ago and my skin is the best shape it’s been in for as long as I can remember. I feel like my texture is better, old scars are clearing up, and my skin just looks and feels healthier. I had honestly only one blemish appear during “that time of the month” when normally there would be a significant increase. It did take about 2 weeks for me to really notice the change but I’m happy I stuck with it!

    Stick with me, because this review might be long, but it’s one I wish I had whenever I was debating buying this product.

    In full disclosure, I was using a OTC topical gel before this product. I’ve struggled with acne ever since I changed my birth control in my early 20’s (now in my late 20’s), which ranged from black heads, white heads, and cystic acne (especially right before my period). I would describe by skin as normal/oily. Though the topical gel helped with my black heads and white heads, I was still getting at least one or two cysts each month, which were painful and took weeks to go away. I would have MAYBE a day or two of clear skin before the cycle started all over again. Since I was using the OTC topical gel, I didn’t feel comfortable using pictures, so y’all are going to have to take my word for it.

    I’m going to break down what the trial kit was like for me week-by-week. Again, this may feel excessive, but it was what I was looking for in other reviews and hope it will be helpful for you.

    I immediately noticed how smooth my skin felt after using the product. On top of that, it reduced the redness in my skin, soothed patches that were flaky from my topical gel, reduced the size of the cystic acne I was fighting from my latest break out, and it smelled great. I noticed a burning sensation the first two or so days using the product, but after the third day my skin adapted and I haven’t felt it since.

    Almost all of my white heads were gone at this point. (Albeit, I only had a few, but they were gone). Likewise, the small bumps I used to get around my jawline went away. The black heads on my nose were still present, but definitely less noticeable, and my pores were smaller. My once-flaky skin was completely smooth, and all redness irritation was completely gone. The best part: my cystic acne was deflated. There was still a red spot from irritation, but it was much smaller and no longer painful. I’m telling you, it reduced size in a week, whereas before it would take almost 2 weeks for my cysts to get to this point. So far so good.

    The true test. I usually break out a week before my period begins, so I knew this week would be the kicker. Y’all, my skin was the clearest it’s ever been THE WEEK BEFORE MY PERIOD. I can’t even describe how much of a miracle that is. I had one breakout, meaning one impossibly tiny white head that only I would notice because I was on the lookout for it, and zero cysts. You read that correctly. Zero cysts. I haven’t had a menstrual cycle without cystic acne in years. YEARS. On top of that, the cysts I did have from my last breakout were completely gone. Additionally, the blackheads on my nose were essentially unnoticeable unless I got a centimeter away from the mirror and made myself go cross-eyed.

    So this is why I ended up rating 4 stars instead of 5. Even though my skin survived the week before my period, I had a small breakout the week after. Just a small variation of white/black heads, but about 3-4 popped up at once. I also have to partially attribute this to touching my face more—a bad habit that I picked up again when I started my new job and caught myself resting my face in my hand. The breakout was on my chin and jawline, but the pimples were MUCH smaller than they’ve been in the past, were gone in a day or two, and again, no cystic acne. Technically this system lasted almost 5 weeks for me, where that last breakout fell between end of week 4/beginning of week 5.

    In summary, though I still experienced break outs, the size, severity, and amount of my pimples definitely improved. My skin is softer than it’s ever been, has an even tone, and I’m noticing a reduction in scars. I just bought the full kit and can’t wait to see continued results. It may not be an over-night success, but I’m seeing more results with this than I have with any other system without paying an arm and a leg.

    Hope this was helpful!

    I used R+F for nearly 3 years before I developed an allergic reaction to some of its ingredients. I switched to SLMD and I’m sorry I didn’t sooner!! I never had HORRIBLE acne, just enough to cause embarrassment and the need for cover up. This system is great because it keeps my acne at bay and is gentle(and moisturizes!!)my very dry skin. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and I am very happy with the results. I bought it because I love Dr. PP, but I’m repurchasing (and repurchasing…and repurchasing…) because of the product and results!

    This kit sadly didn’t work for me. I was very excited and optimistic about trying this kit in search of something better than my normal routine (I don’t switch my acne products ever) and was very dissapointed when I noticed more pimples popping up than before on my forehead and chin. I believe it might have had something to do with the retinol gel because it made my skin excessively oily, while I was using the directed amount so that could’ve cause some pore clogging. I wouldnt recommend this product if you have oily skin.

What I have had are the little white bumps on my jaw line that I’ve always been told are from lack of exfoliation and the oil hardening. I’ve been using this kit for less than a week and the bumps are virtually gone! I am in Alaska so it is pretty dry and I haven’t had any issues with dry skin at all.

    At first, I’m use to the acne systems with the little micro beads in it to help the exfoliation….this product I at first was hesitant about. But I swear y’all, my skin has never looked better, and that is with and without makeup! It’s that perfect dewy/clear skin look, that I have longed for. I never really had bad acne, but it was those little stubborn bumps all around my chin on my forehead and cheeks, always an issue. It obviously (just like any system you start) took awhile for it to fully kick it and start diminishing these bumps, but I have gotten so many compliments on my skin. I thought I loved Sandra because she made pimple poppin a real hit and I’m over here always watching it always, and now she’s out with this amazing product!! Keep it up!

    I purchased this because I have been struggling with acne forever, and people have sworn by this product. I was a little hesitant about the price, but I thought you pay for the quality product you get. The face wash is gentle, which I loved. The day time cream burns my face. The night time cream was thick and smooth which was nice, and the lotion was okay. But after using this product religiously for about 3 weeks, I’m not noticing my skin getting better. If anything it got worse. I’ve had horrible break outs since I started using this. I wouldn’t recommend it, and I wouldn’t purchase it again.

    I was excited to try this product to finally break the cycle of my adult acne I’ve been plagued with for the past few years in my late 20s.

    The product and packaging looks and smells very nice, and is a decent size (the 30 day starter kit has lasted me a month plus an extra week or so) and is gentle on my skin, but it hasn’t made any difference in my acne AT ALL.

    I’ve been using it religiously night & day and wanted to give it a fair chance, but I’ve had 2 major breakouts since starting this. I always struggled with hormonal acne on my chin, which hasn’t improved, and since beginning this system I have broken out on my forehead which is unusual for me.

    I was hopeful after reading rave reviews, but unfortunately it just wasn’t the answer to my skin problem.

    I have liked this system so far, my skin has been a lot better with my acne but i have been noticing throughout the day now it is a LOT more oily… like a lot… and i’m wondering why that is? Maybe i’m doing something wrong in the application but it’s quite annoying i heard somewhere that systems for acne sometimes dry out your skin more causing it to create more oil, this system doesnt seem to dry out my skin though so im wondering if you have any insight! Other than that i love the system.

      Hi Melissa,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are so happy to hear that your acne is starting to clear up! In regards to your skin feeling more oily, there is a small minority of people that start a retinoid and see an increase in oil production. We recommend to replace the clarifying treatment with the acne lotion to see if your oil production goes back to normal.

    After battling youthful acne with my dermatologist as a teen, I’d had relatively good skin until (at 26) I switched my birth control earlier this year. I finally realized my routine wasn’t working, and thought I’d give this a try – and it’s worked great! Not 100% yet but my face is SO much clearer then it was before. As an extra bonus, this routine has nipped any of those early-signs-of-aging in the butt. However, I have to take a star off for the packaging. My pump tubes wouldn’t work at first – I finally got product to come out, but for the first two weeks the night time treatment would just sputter all over the place, I feel I wasted a lot trying to get the air bubbles out; this problem has been mentioned in other reviews and on Instagram. Additionally, the cleanser cap stopped clicking shut after a week of use- it’s fine if I keep it carefully set on my shelf, but I can’t take it with me anywhere.

We are always developing new products so we hope that you find an SLMD product that you love in the near future.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Sandra Lee since I discovered drpimplepopper. I was so excited to buy her products and see results. However my skin has stayed the same. I still get my regular break outs and my regular clear ups. I also can not stand the smell of any of the products. I’ve tried many other acne products however with the same cycle of break out and clear up so I am chalking it up to my skin and behavior. I do highly recommend the smells be changed though. I really wanted this to work for me but at least there was no negatives.

    I have pretty good skin but I do get random bumps and my pores are pretty big and clogged. It didn’t even take a week to see results! I will say that the first week the product made my skin pretty dry but that passed and my skin is the smoothest it’s ever been and it just keeps getting better, my skin is glowing!! I will for sure be ordering more:)

    Finally, a product that I can actually see results and quickly! I never struggled with acne until my early twenties. Then the hormonal acne started with cystic like breakouts, but it wasn’t severe like some cases I’ve seen. My breakouts we’re enough to shoot my self-esteem down though and especially at my age. I tried home remedies, otc products, oral antibiotics for acne, and even started oral contraceptives. I have been using this kit for about 7 days, and I already see improvement and I hope it continues 🙂 the only complaint I have is that my benzoyl peroxide lotion tube on my 30 day kit never worked. It was broken when I went to use, but I just removed the pump and squeezed it out. I am definitely purchasing the 60 day kit !!!!! Thank you @drpimplepopper 🙂
    I did take a before picture, but it was somehow deleted. Just trust me there is a huge improvement even with scarring !!!!!

    I had a major hormonal break out of cystic acne, blackheads, and white heads that began last October. It was awful – my face was almost unrecognizable from the amount of acne. It was like trying to put out a fire – after getting one tiny area to calm down, another huge area would break out. Then I would have red marks and fresh acne to combat. I tried going on oral and topical medication from my dermatologist and it just wasn’t working, so finally around June I decided to give this a try. If it didn’t work, it really could make my face worse. It took about 6 weeks, but my goodness did it do the trick!!! I still get a bump here and there, but nothing like before. Now I’m trying to be patient with the scarring left behind and red spots that are still fading. I would definitely recommend giving this system a try, especially if you have tried topical/oral medications that just aren’t cutting it. I finally have the confidence to go out without make-up on 24/7, which in the past would have mortified me. This stuff is a lifesaver.

    I have struggled with adult acne for over 2 years now. I got it in the mail on Saturday, first used it on Sunday, and here it is Monday and I’m already seeing incredible results. The inflammation of my face has reduced probably by 50% and spots have cleared already. Instead of crying tears of self pity, I’m sitting here crying tears of joy. Thank you!

    I initially started with normal acne a few pimples on each cheek. I saw instagram posts of people with much worse off acne and healed with a general timespan of 2 weeks. I’ve been giving myself more time to write a review so i wouldn’t have made a bad judgement as I undertand each person’s skin and healing is different. I have been on this treatment since June 13 so around 2 months and a couple of days. I now feel like i can review this regime. I saw results in just FIVE days i couldn’t believe my eyes. My face was literally clear. Second week in, my face started to break out and then by the end of my starter kit, my face was left worse off than what I started with. I continued in hopes that it was the kind of treatment that makes some people’s skin worse before it gets better. I am now done with my second month and I am still worse off, it also left me with scars and mind you that I haven’t applied makeup or touched my face since June 13th. I was very diligent with the treatment. I gave it a 2 star ratimh because it truly doesn’t leave your face dried out like most acne fighting ointments. I don’t want to discourage anyone from trying it as many people have seen results, I just want to send a message because I had never seen any post on IG that indiciate a person got worse but on the contrary that everyone seems to be healing. Regardless, really hope this works for you guys.

    I was disheartened at how much money I could spend on a zillion different products that didn’t work. I was convinced that my switch of birth control was just causing hormonal acne that I couldn’t control. I’ve been only using my 30 day kit for 5 days- and my face has already almost completely cleared up. And best of all, it feels good. I’m used to either feeling way too oily or flaky and dry from products but this just feels like my skin. Thank you so much Dr. Lee. I’ll definitely be using this from now on.

    I have been going to a dermatologist for about 10 years now and I have done everything from accutane to long term antibiotics to retinols to creams to gels to home remedies and more. This is the first acne system to work this quickly for me and I’m so happy with my results! I still have small black and white heads on and around my nose and chin but other than that I’m pretty much clear! Even the texture and tone of my skin has improved. I’m getting married next year and the thought of not having clear skin on my big day was becoming extremely stressful. I can’t wait to see my results in the coming months! Thank you!

    I don’t have a problem with acne per se, but I do have a problem with small blackheads all over my forehead/nose/chin and VERY oily skin. Also, my skin has just felt very blah over the past year or so, no matter how regularly I exfoliated or what I used – nothing helped.

    So I decided to give this a shot and get the 30 day kit. I’ve been using it for two weeks religiously, and my skin has really never felt better. It isn’t so harsh that it drys my skin out, which I’ve had a problem with when using other products. My skin is soft, even, and not too oily (Perfect!). In fact, yesterday my boyfriend asked me if I did my makeup (I don’t do my makeup often), and I didn’t have a stitch of makeup on. So it is clearly making my skin look as good as it feels.

    As for the blackheads, they aren’t completely gone but they are noticeably reduced. I couldn’t be happier with the product.

    I have tried absolutely everything. Medications, accutane (TWICE), and all sorts of skin care systems, facials, peels. Ect… I was a huge fan of Dr. pimple popper so I thought why not give the 30 day system a try. It saved my life. My skin has never been so clear in the last 8 years. It’s not perfect but I can now put only a tinted moisturizer on and be super confident in my skin. I have zero knew zits and I’m just in the healing process now. The only thing I did not feel was amazing was the day lotion. I decided to buy everything else individually. Loved the clarifying night time serum and the face wash. This stuff was a saving grace I cannot stop recommending it to friends and family. So thankful

    Did not work for me at all. I kept trying it for weeks thinking it took awhile for my skin to get used to but nope, nothing changed. I got new pimples everyday and tiny bumps all over my forehead. Didn’t work for me, but there are many positive reviews, so might work for you

    I was nervous about trying this at first only because my skin used to react poorly to salicylic acid when I was younger but I figured my skin has changed though the years and at this point I was willing to try anything. I wouldn’t say it kept my skin clear 100% of the time, but it definitely reduced the number of pimples I got, including hormonal pimples, and how long it took for them to heal (1-2 days compared to a week!). It did not irritate or dry out my skin the way salicylic acid used to. Already repurchased the 60 day kit! Overall very pleased and I will continue to purchase!

    I really really wanted this to be the miracle product for me that it was for so many others.
    For reference, I’ve struggled with acne since I was a teenager (now 26). I tried everything from prescription topical treatments and (benzoyl peroxide, rentiols, etc) antibiotics. It calmed down a bit when I was in the pill, but I traded the pill for an IUD and my acne returned full force within 5 months. The acne I have ranges from shallow white heads to painful cystic acne. This treatment was a last ditch effort before I get prescribed to accutane. So to accutane I go with high hopes.
    This treatment helped a teeny tiny bit, but nothing really dramatic. I still have to cover my face in foundation before I leave the house because I’m red, inflamed, and full of bumps.
    I gave it two stars because the quality of the product was good. All of the creams were light and airy and the wash smelled wonderful. However, for the above stated reason I will not be buying this again.

      We are sorry to hear that you are anything less than pleased with your SLMD purchase.

    I was excited to start this treatment, but after the 2nd or third day, it just made my acne worse.

    • SLMD

      Hi Sierra! Thank you for your comment. Typically, you will not see results from any acne system or skincare products with just 2-3 days of use. Results and changes are seen after at least 2-4 weeks of consistent use of products. Our suggestion is that you follow the system for a few weeks before deciding if it is working well for you — if you feel irritation is getting worse after that amount of time, you may want to reduce use of products or see a Dermatologist. We hope that helps!

    This product has been a miracle worker for me! I have cystic acne and I have tried EVERYTHING. Proactiv was never strong enough and Rodan and Fields only made my skin worse. Over the counter products only dry my face out and never make it go away. I went out on a limb and ordered the 30 day kit because I am studying to be a dermatologist and trust Sandra. So I got it and started using it right away. I learned very quickly a little goes a LONG way and using too much caused my skin to get really dry. So I scaled back to every other day until my skin got used to it. My skin never broke out as a teenager and now that I am an adult it really hurts my self esteem especially as a 27 year old woman. I was even getting deep pitted scars because of how bad it was. I have been on this for 2 weeks and WOW my skin….yea HUGE difference. Even my husband was relieved because I stopped talking about how awful my skin was. My confidence is back and I am more sociable than ever before!! Thank you for making a product that works and not just something else to sell to us poor victims!!!

    I really wanted to try this product out as soon as I saw Dr. Lee posting about it, but was hesitant because I have very sensitive skin. I thought that this would be too harsh on my skin, since previous products used by my dermatologist were way too harsh and broke out my face and turned it a shade of red.
    After a couple of days of using the starter kit, I noticed that I started getting some small bumps all over my forehead and almost stopped using the kit, but continued on to allow my skin time to adjust to the products used. And that was the best decision EVER! I’m 18 and have struggled with having breakouts and I have not had a breakout since I started! My skin feels healthy, thankful for the change, and happy! Thank you Dr. Lee for making me feel confident in my skin again!!

    I have probably spent hundreds of dollars on products ranging from Neutrogena all the way to Proactive, but none of them and I mean NONE of them have been able to treat my skin the way this product has.

    I have extremely oily and sensitive skin that is very acne prone. I have tons of milia and black heads that SLMD acne system has helped diminish (obviously I do the occasional popping because #popaholic). 10/10 would recommend to anyone struggling with blackheads, milia, or acne in general. Thank you so much Dr. Lee for an amazing product that made me feel more confident, this product is definitely a game changer!

    I have sensitive skin and despite being assured that this product would be fine for my skin type, I had a very bad reaction to the products, mostly the cleanser and clarifying treatments, dried out my skin to the point of it being flaky and rough. I did, however, like the acne lotion. It works well with my sensitive skin to keep bacteria from causing breakouts. I would consider purchasing this item in full-size if I hadn’t had so many issues with the service team. The website had glitched initially, causing me to place two orders. The team did not respond quickly enough to my inquiry to cancel one of the orders so I had to return the order with a shipping label they provided. However it’s been over a month since I returned the duplicate order and despite usps confirmation of recepit, Slmd has STILL not processed the credit card refund. Some of the worst customer service I’ve ever received!

    • SLMD Service Team

      Hi Elena – we are sorry to hear that you had a frustrating and inconvenient experience with SLMD Skincare! I took a look at your order history and it looks like your duplicate order was refunded so hopefully that situation has been resolved. We are also sorry to hear that you had an adverse reaction to some of the products. Here at SLMD Skincare we pride ourselves on delivering products with the most effective active ingredients to treat acne in the SLMD Acne System. While these active ingredients are safe to use for all skin types, there are occasionally cases of irritation or dryness. When this occurs, it often helps to use the products causing the dryness every other day or every two days to allow your skin to get accustomed to the treatment. Then a more normal, daily use can be resumed. Again, we apologize for the experience you had with our customer service team and hope that we can earn your trust again one day soon!

    I have been using these products for a month now, and so has my preadolescent daughter because she saw the progress. I couldn’t believe the immediate difference I felt and saw on my face. It didn’t dry out my skin, in fact it felt softer than ever and within days my blackheads and whiteheads started to diminish in size. I have been battling these for 25 years since I was my daughters age, as my mom did, and we just thought it was something we would always live with. I now can say with excitement my skin as never looked clearer and I’m just ecstatic. I’m a pimple popper-aholic, love Sandra Lee but still purchased the product initially skeptically, but I am telling you- these products are life changers. Thank you!!

    I’m 22 and I struggle with cystic pimples around my jaw line and neck, blackheads on my nose and chin, and acne on my forehead. I have tried everything to try to get rid of my problem acne, from blackhead strips, pore minimizing face wash, witch hazel, charcoal and green tea face masks, tea tree oil- you name it, I’ve tried it. Nothing ever worked. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars..nothing has worked.
    I’ve been watching Dr Pimple Popper on Instagram for a couple months now and I hate to say it but I LOVE her videos! I am a fan of pimple popping, and we all know that once you pop one on your face you have to pop the rest. Which results in redness, inflammation, broken skin, and sometimes infection.
    I get so embarrassed to leave my house because I have serious breakouts and makeup doesn’t even cover it up. I discovered the SLMD Acne System about a week ago and after reading one review, I placed an order immediately. I received my products yesterday and let me tell you, after just ONE DAY of using it- HOLY CRAP!!!!!!
    This stuff works, better than anything I have ever tried in my life!! My pimples instantly went down in size and the redness reduced immensely! I was in such shock I wanted to cry. I am so, SO happy I found this product! I highly recommend it to anyone that has problem skin. THANK YOU SO MUCH DR SANDRA LEE! 🙂

I must say DR.Lee aka Pimplepopper. Has made my wish come true. Since I have put this in my face routine. I’ve not only noticed my acne isn’t bad anymore. I can go out without any makeup. To hide my embarrassing acne. Even my husband has complemented me on the difference. Not only him but my mother also. I’m so glad I gave this a try. I will continue to use this product. Everything that comes with it. Not only feels good on your face. It very light and doesn’t dry out your skin. I LOVE THIS ACNE SYSTEM! !!!!
