I win....LOVE IT...i'm not too sure about future breakouts as I still breakout occasionally and it's not a product you can smear all over your face but it's great at making a pimple or zit either disappear without even coming to a head (which is rare for me) or it'll make it come to a head faster so that it'll pop on its own then heal faster, than if I didn't put this product on it at all....I like that it contains sulfur and that the product leaves a light pink spot over the location it's applied -- it makes me feel like it's really working more so than a clear gel acne treatment.

Not bad...Love it....List night I could feel a spot that would eventually become a pimple ( it hurt but the skin was smooth), applied the device to that spot 3 times, still woke up to a risen pimple head....I've noticed that if I catch a spot early-on, and immediately treat it 2-3 times consecutively with my Espada, the pimple heals either the next day or the whitehead comes up and clears within 2-3 days, which is a huge improvement from how long I usually wait out a pimple (a week or more).
