I'm about to order my 4th bottle. Another reviewer said to keep and use the small, red plug and cap without the brush that it comes with, and I completely agree. The red plug will keep the product from drying out inside the bottle (it will definitely dry up in the bottle the more it is exposed to air.)
Another person said that when you use this stuff you will find flakes all over your house- So true! I am sweeping them up all the time.
Anyways, how it works- I have acne scarring, and used silicone scar sheets for about 2 years straight before turning to this product. Silicone sheets work best if you keep them on for 24/7- not something you can do on your face, so you sleep with them, and talk about finding things everywhere! I was always looking for them in my bed! Stuck to my pillow, stuck to my hair..stuck to my sweeties body!!! So weird. And I didn't really see results from them that I wanted.
After trying this product, I've noticed a lot of improvement! It seems to be softening the sharp edges of my scars, and some of my shallow scars are completely gone. My skin in general seems to be better. It's not 100% but there is enough improvement so far that I want to keep going. I apply it every night, and scrub it off in the morning. I actually put lavender EO on my face, then evening primrose oil, then my Skinmedica Retinol, THEN I apply the Scarguard on top of my scarred areas. It dries even on top of all my other products. In the morning, it takes a bit of scrubbing to get it off, but its worth it.
AND- the best thing about it that I have noticed...It seems to speed up healing of pimples!! It stings like a mofo, but it definitely makes pimples heal up in only a few days (and so far any zits I have covered with this have healed without a scar, and redness seems to disappear faster too!)
Wish I had discovered this years ago when I had bad acne.
