However, something has been stirring on Reddit. The 10% Sulfur Ointment from US brand De La Cruz has been hailed as a cure for cystic acne, with users claiming it’s actually cleared them up *overnight*.
For anyone who’s experienced an acne flare-up, hearing about yet ANOTHER product that miraculously claims to banish spots can be pretty tiresome. We’ve heard it all before. And how much does it cost? £100 for a tiny pot? Nope, not going to happen.
The £4 cream is supposed to dry spots and blackheads, preventing them from reappearing.
So, what’s The 10% Sulfur Ointment made from?
The clue is in the name. The key ingredient is sulfur, a chemical element with natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that helps kill the acne-causing bacteria. It also prevents new bacteria from manifesting on the skin’s surface.
The ingredient is known as ‘drying’ because it peels away the top layer of the skin and, in the process, reduces the production of sebum in the skin, which leads to oiliness.
Tell me about the reviews…
There’s over 400 reviews on Amazon, most of them sharing their success stories:
“I noticed a difference within three days of use. The dark puncture spots were lighter and all three went completely flat. I haven’t had a new breakout since.”
“My teenage son had horrible acne. We’ve tried so many products and nothing has worked. He puts this on at night and it’s like magic! You get results overnight!”
“I can put this on for 20 mins and like magic the swelling, redness and breakouts are basically gone!”
“If you are a skeptic like me you have to try this if you want perfect clear skin, you won’t regret it!!! I’m so happy I can have a social life again, finally!!! Thank you for making this product, I am so glad I bought it!!”
And on Reddit, a user called The Quinn Bee wrote, “I had these two cystics that were driving me bonkers. They were freaking painful and noticeable and another was popping up..someone here recommended sulfur cream. I slap some on for 10 minutes and wash it off. After a day I could double it up. The new one vanished like immediately…The old ones are nearly gone. I haven’t developed any new ones yet. It feels so freaking good not to have these painful cysts on my face.”
It’s hard to ignore the results, will you be trying it?
