Acnezine uses a nutritional supplement and a topical moisturizing cream to work on both the causes and the symptoms of acne. The system has been on the market for almost a decade, and some people have found relief from painful outbreaks, especially when using the capsules.
The active ingredients of the Acnezine supplement are:
Vitamin E Acetate
Vitamin C Ester
Alpha Lipoic Acid
While the second component of the system is called a "moisturizing creme", it consists of 5% benzoyl peroxide. Several customers said that their skin got too dry while using it, and so they kept using just the capsules. Others said that the creme was very similar to less expensive brand-name products on the market.
Despite being around for years, we weren't impressed by Acnezine's unsecured website. We found errors that gave us pause, from telling us to drink a "lit of water" after every capsule, to misspelling the main ingredient in the moisturizing creme (such as benzoyl peroxide). The FAQ very vaguely explains that once you get the product in the mail, you'll be able to see the recommended dosage. Especially on a product that has reviews dating back almost a decade, this left us wondering if the acne product was indeed high-quality.
The instructions on the Acnezine site were also contradictory: should we take one capsule per day, one per meal, before we eat or after? That's not a great approach to taking any kind of dietary supplement.
Acnezine's return policy isn't fantastic. Although you'll see a 100% guarantee prominently featured on the site, digging into the Terms and Conditions reveals that you cannot return items that have been opened or used, and there's a $10 restocking fee for each item you send back. And, the FAQ says that if you have any medical questions about their product, you should contact your doctor: they won't give you any information about possible reasons you should or shouldn't use their acne system.
Compared with other acne solution providers, this company falls far short in many ways. We strongly recommend that you consider other acne products that have a more solid reputation.
