Absorption (?

Absorption

Absorption describes how well a substance penetrates your skin. Here we measure absorption in terms of its rate of penetration into your skin. How fast did it absorb? Some products don't absorb well, and instead "sit" on top of skin forming a film, which can range from light to heavy. If you still have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, the rate would be considered Very Slow.

I use this product when I have occasional acne breakouts and often preventive (before I go to bed). It works really well, doesn't dry your skin out and gives it a clean, acne free feeling!

I was excited about this product because I love La Roche-Posay however it did not work for me. I used it at night after cleansing and appeared to have made the acne worse. I got cystic pustules on my cheeks, more closed comedones all over my forehead, chin and nose plus more painful blind pimples under my jawline. Perhaps the actives caused a purge unfortunately.
