It does what it says - fights pimples and zits. 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 will pop on its own then heal faster, than if i didn't put this product on it at all. ...Good investment for smaller break outs...I've used this product until it's dried up. I have hormonal acne so it's a bit more stubborn than my regular break outs. i can say this does work but it's not as good as my pimple patches for another brand.
