One of two best products EVER (and I try a lot) -

There are two beauty products that I have ever tried that have transformed my appearance (I have had professional treatments that have, but that's another story).
The first is a tourmaline-infused straightening iron- goodbye frizzies, hello sleek, beautiful hair!
The second is this product. (Actually, the Clarisonic Mia also rocks-need the one with the sensitive brushhead, but it cleans pores like nobody's business).
So, I have a milestone birthday coming up and I mega-splurged and bought this product.
I had been using the Mia for about 2 weeks, and it lessened sebaceous hyperplasia, but certainly didn't make it go away.
All derms and estheticians will tell you that ONLY a dermatologist can get rid of sebaceous hyperplasia, so this is really, really amazing!
The first time, yes the FIRST time, that I used the TNS the sebaceous hyperplasia dissapeared. I was SHOCKED and do NOT think others should use this with the same expectations.
(But remember, I had already diminished the hyperplasia with the Mia).
Been using for about a week since that time.
Already, my skin is noticeably more even, I had a few milia and it is making them go away and it is even helping with wrinkling just under my chin that resulted from Ultherapy (super expensive, super painful medical procedure that did nothing but cause this neck problem).
The one thing I do not like about this product is, possibly because it has alcohol in it (fairly high up in ingredient list- why, SkinMedica, why?)
I can't use the 1% retinol product that I was using.
I do have sensitive skin (and the Mia makes it more sensitive), but I think this would be an issue for most people.
I decided that for now I'd rather use this, but I may at some time go to a lower strength retinol and alternate use of it and the TNS.
Also, I have oily skin, so it's no problem for me that it's slightly drying (very slightly), but someone with dry skin would definitely have to use a good moisturizer over it.
I am only using it once a day because I tried it in the day and it IS kind of sticky. Funny, but don't notice that at night.
Overall, I am honestly blown away by what a product that you can purchase on the internet can deliver.
One last thing, you can actually get it for like $100 less, but I don't trust that you are getting the real deal (there are reviews to that effect to). For this kind of money, you need to know that you are getting what you pay for.
