Overall a solid choice of a high percentage Azelaic acid product! Highly recommend
I will continue to use it at night in this way and will definitely repurchase. If you aren’t seeing results try and switch it up in your routine!
My new routine: micellar water on a cotton round, wash my face with mild cleanser, apply Dr. Wade’s acne/rosacea serum, apply the Paula’s Choice-Azeliac Acid booster, let those soak in and finish with a hydrating night cream. I do this now both am and pm...and am so thrilled with the results in just a few weeks. The bumps/breakouts have all cleared and smoothed, so now i am feeling so much more confident as foundation covers over much better now. I can’t wait to see what another few weeks of use brings!
One thing I will say is if you’re beginning Differin while using this and a salicylic acid cleanser, I would temporarily discontinue both as this product also contains salicylic acid in it and those combined with the Differin greatly dried my face out. Should be ok to going back to using this product once your face is acclimated to the Differin.
Then I started using this, and I took a photo of my face every day for all that time to see the progress, because here’s the thing about azelaic acid: It can behave like a (safe, non-resistance-forming) antibiotic for your skin, but it is very slow to show results. As I review my photos, I can see that for about two months of using this I didn’t really have a noticeable improvement. But then, after that, I can see a gradual improvement. By month four, my skin is so much better that I don’t think I’ll ever stop using this.
No, my skin isn’t perfect. I have redness on my nose that appears to have resulted from acne, and I still get small zits here and there, but my days of deep, swollen, achy, itchy zits that last for weeks are gone. I haven’t had one like that in well, about two or three months.
If you’re considering getting this, but you’re put off by the price, I get you. I thought so too. But this bottle lasts about two months if you use it twice a day, because you really don’t use a lot. So it isn’t as bad as it seems.
I use this product as the very last in my night time skin routine — and I use it anywhere I can feel I will have a zit, anywhere I have one, and where I’ve recently had one — but I also just put a thin amount in the places I know have a tendency to breakout.
I also use it in the morning, but then only a very small amount beneath sunscreen and makeup. It has a tendency to pill unfortunately, so you’ll need to be particularly careful with it. In the daytime use an extra tiny little bit of it. Moisturize the areas it will be on extra, let the moisturizer sink in, apply this, and gently pat products on top, don’t rub. For real, don’t rub or it’ll come right off (you can rub it in when applying it, just not once its been on your skin for more than about a minute).
It can be a bit itchy. In my case its really only itchy when its on too thickly. This also gets better over time.
I’ve found other spot treatments to be too harsh and drying, and/or not work well. This isn’t the fastest spot treatment, but if you can be patient, this is just awesome.
