Is XOut good for your skin?

This acne treatment product is very popular on the Internet, although it has impressively bad performance (considering its’ rating and reviews). Almost 40% of all people who have purchased this product report that they did not obtain satisfying results. The treatment includes a 2.5 oz Wash-In Treatment (benzoyl peroxide-based) and a 1 oz.
