I have suffered with rosacea for about 8 years now, and have tried topical antibiotics and metrogel, as well as topical steroid cortisone creams. Nothing worked long-term. My rosacea would come and go–oddly enough, it was better in the summer than winter. Sun seemed to help it a little. Could be that I have a darker complexion than most rosacea sufferers.
I purchased the product last winter, and used it for a few weeks. I also bought jojoba oil and used it in conjunction with the brown disk. My rosacea visibly improved within two weeks. The jojoba oil was incredible too! I have dry skin, and it was like a salve. I have always consumed a lot of water, and that makes a difference in every aspect of your life, not just rosacea.
I stopped using the product because the weather changed and I was able to be out (cautiously) in the sun, and my rosacea disappeared. Just a few weeks ago, I decided to start using the brown disk again because it was mid-winter and my rosacea was back again in full force.
In just two weeks, the redness and the few bumps I had have all but disappeared. This sulfur stuff really seems to work! The treatment combined with jojoba oil is tremendous! I am a true believer, and will continue to use it in the summer as well to keep my rosacea in check.
I wish physicians would recommend this treatment to their patients who suffer from rosacea. It’s very effective and cost effective too!
Thank you for your wonderful product!
