I have been suffering from acne a year.

Customer Question

Hi, I have been suffering from facial acne for almost a year. But recently I have noticed that it has become worse. I am currently overseas on holidays and will not return home for another 3 months.
I have used a couple of different products (such as benzac) but they seem to not work so well.
