I purged heavily for a good month or so when I first started using p50. I was miserable and the junk coming OUT OF MY FACE was astounding!!! As a longtime acne sufferers who has been on accutane 3x I had a lot of impacted pores. I stuck with it through the purging and I was rewarded with the best skin of my life- no joke. This miracle liquid has completely cleared up my acne and if I do get a pimple it takes down the inflammation and clears up the scar. It keeps my pores clear and my skin just glowing. I am a devout disciple of lotion p50. It is everything everyone says it is and more. I am 39 and my skin is more luminous, glowing, smooth, and clear than it has been in my whole life and just continues to improve. I will take this to the grave or on a desert island. Thank god for this product.
