    i have two daughters and we have tried everything for their acne. my older daughter has used R&F and it did help a little but i had my younger one try SLMD skincare and her skin cleared up instantly. as soon as my older daughter uses up the R&F, she wants to use SLMD too.

    I’ve never had *terrible* skin, but I was searching for a product that would even my skin tone and minimize the break outs I do get. I bought the starter kit, but this clarifying treatment is my favorite. I still get breakouts here and there, but my overall skin has changed. It’s even and vibrant, no longer dull and dry. My cheeks have never felt so smooth – to the point where I don’t even wear face makeup anymore. I didn’t realize how much my normal skin routine wasn’t doing anything until I found these products. They are worth it!

    I use this product each night before bed and wake up with flawless skin. I have always had cystic acne and this is the solution.

    I look forward to the evening when I can put this on! A little definitely goes a long way and works awesome. I notice if I miss one night my skin starts to flare up but the second I get back to the routine it clears up. Definitely takes 2 weeks of using it every single day in the beginning to see results but it is worth the wait!

    This product provides amazing results! After a good face wash ,with the acne cleanser at night. Applies smooth and non greasy. It is very light ,yet very affective. This will always be in my nightly routine. Not only helps for my hormonal acne. It also stops regularly breaking out. It has done a wonderful job on my face.

    I am amazed at how well this Clarifying Treatment has worked on my skin. I have always struggled with hyperpigmentation due to my acne scarring and breakouts. I had uneven skin tone and felt very uncomfortable going out in public without a face full of makeup. My skin is very dry and I have tried everything out there to help my skin. This treatment is amazing!! My skin tone has definitely improved and I am loving the results! I started to notice a difference in my skin within the first few weeks. You definitely need to be very consistent with the treatment and make sure to put it on every night. I love that it has made me comfortable enough to go some days without coverage on my skin. I even get compliments on my skin. Thank you SLMD!

    I have tried every acne system on this planet including oral medications and seeing a dermatologist routinely, nothing had worked until I found this system. The clarifying treatment does not dry my skin out at all and actually leaves it feeling moisturized and refreshed in the morning. I also have a back up of this product so when i’m running low, I know i have more. I seriously can’t go a night without it. So happy to have found the SLMD skin care products! They have changed my life and most importantly the quality of my skin.

    I love this product. It has been helping me get over some acne scars from high school. Along with the other products this just helps tremendously. I use it every night and wake up feeling like I have fresh skin.

    I have been using SLMD for a few months now and my skin looks amazing!!! I used to have very blotchy, uneven and easily irritated skin. I use the cleanser, then the clarifying treatment at night and finally the moisturizer. These products keep my skin hydrated so my body no longer produces oils in excess causing breakouts!!

    Best stuff out there! Nothing else worked for me, until this little miracle line came along. I’ve even gotten my husband hooked so now when I place an order, it’s for double of everything! Thank you, Dr. Lee!!

    This cleared up my forehead acne super fast, which I have never been able to do since I started getting acne.

    I have tried many things over the years and really didn’t start getting breakouts until after I had a baby. This product is the best at keeping my skin clear and I do use other products from this line as well. I highly recommend it.

    I’ve added this to the BP Free system as the nightly blemish treatment. It is everything and more that I could have hoped for. It has made my 40 year old skin clear and soft. A friend accidentally touched my face, after I had only been using it for about a week, and immediately started rubbing my face on purpose saying how smooth and soft it was. I told her I owe it all to Sandra Lee’s wonderful products. This is also totally greaseless and light weight, unlike many other retinol treatments I have used. I will never stop using any of the SLMD products.

    My face as been flawless, no acne, 2 weeks before my period i would start breaking out, with 2 welts on top of one another on the left and right side of my chin! Since I’ve been using it, I’ve only had 1 pimple!! :)) hooked for life! Plus my redness has gone away!

    I have struggled with acne for what is coming up to be 7 years now and I have tried everything! Between dozens of face washes, oral pills, chemical peels and even laser treatments, I have continued to have constant breakouts that never seemed to go away. I was the friend with bad skin. It really took a toll on me when I had to cover up with makeup before I would have to come in contact with people. That was until I started using the SLMD Acne System. These products really work! They are non irritating and light on the skin. I would recommend this product to everyone dealing with acne. Not only does it rid your face of pimples, but it also gets rid of the red scars they leave behind. I 10/10 recommend. It is so worth buying!

    Since I added this to my skincare routine, my acne has cleared up and the scars are fading faster. It doesn’t dry out my skin either and smells great 👍

    This clarifying treatment is amazing! I put it on at night, and my skin in the morning is clear and moisturized. This is my absolute favorite skin product right now! Thank you Dr. Lee!

    This product has worked great in addition to the cleanser. I put it on at night and it honestly transforms my skin by morning, reducing redness and any type of swelling that my acne accumulates throughout the day. I’ve been using it for about a month now and can tell the difference in my skin.

    I am BLOWN away by this product. The texture of this serum feels amazing on my skin. I have some slight discoloration, and after only a few short weeks my skin tone is far more even. Great for minimizing the appearance of previous breakouts (and too much sun!) – YES, LOVE LOVE LOVE IT
