      Acne scar healing

      They are almost finally gone. I checked today and they look like it will be finally gone soon. I am very thankful. I have had these scars for probably since my 20s. Would have been nice to find this sooner.

      My skin looks better than ever and I will continue using it. Also, love the pumpkin enzyme.

      A Must Have in Your Banish Routine

      My current skin concerns include old acne scarring and the occasional new and active acne spots. I apply this serum every other day - making sure to not apply this after I have used the Banisher 2.0. After applying a small amount via the provided dropper, I rub it into my skin, while paying extra attention to my 'of concern' areas. When I wake up the next day, my skin appears dewy and hydrated!

      Non irritant retinol but minimal results found

      I bought this when it was released as a new product and super excited for a banish retinol, gentle easy to apply formula used at night time once a day or every other day to begin with as hadn’t used before and despite being consistent didn’t notice any results to managing my breakouts but didn’t irritant which is at least always a great element of Banish products for acne prone skin.

      Lasts a long time - Great addition to your regime

      I use the Banisher 2.0, serum, vitamin c creme and fighter gel as part of my regular routine. I added this product to my regime because I wanted all the help I can get. The main thing about this product is it lasts a very long time. I believe I was able to use a full bottle within 5 months! I may try to go without this product for a couple months to see if can tell if it's boosting my results as this is a pricier add-on. But the amount you get for the price is worth giving it a shot.

      Working better than expected. Hydrates really well and starting to see my skin improve in a short period of time. Using it with miconeedling. Already noticed better results in just a few weeks with combining it with the leveling serum
