"I don’t use CRUDE products solely (and can’t—even though I totally agree with the philosophy I need active ingredients to keep my cystic acne truly at bay). But CLEANSE has evened out my skin and BLOOM is a great multipurpose oil. I have deep cystic acne that responds well to active ingredients and antibiotics, though I prefer not to use the latter because I’ll just break out when I go off. CRUDE has helped even out my skin and prevent breakouts. Also, when I do have an unavoidable cyst, the PULL clothes are very effective at getting off dead, flaking skin." -Alex B.
