    I had been to multiple dermatologists and all advised I be put on oral medication for my acne. My general practitioner who also practices aesthetics advised I try optoderm oil control and it has really done wonders controlling my breakouts.

    In the beginning this product irritated my skin, however, after a few months my skin got used to it. I would advise this to people who are looking for an affordable product to assist with acne.

    I have been using this product for 2 years in addition to other products. during my pregnancy most of my facial regimen had to change and my products were left behind. I continued using the oil control toner , which has maintained most of my breakouts during and after my pregnancy to a minimal. One of your key core products for acne prone skin / oily skin types

    I recently used this product with the Retinac. The combination of these two products worked amazingly in controlling my acne

    The Oil Control is amazing with spots. I have a drier skin and defs not an oil issue but when those pesky pimples appear, a bit of Oil Control on a piece of cotton wool, within a few hours my spots’ inflamation and swelling is down. Works wonders to help manage the occasioal breakouts…
