Worth it 5/5
The products really do help your skin. Everything takes time, but you just feel so much better and cleaner and your skin feels healthy and smooth when you use the products. The app is so simple and easy to use and the doctors behind it are a chat away! They also check up on you every few weeks just to make sure you still like everything that is happening! There are tips and articles that help to answer questions and give you advice about what to eat and how to help you just do better to take care of your skin.
I saw this on Instagram and thought “only $9 (they had a special for the first months supply).. I can cancel if I don’t like it, but it’s worth a shot” it has been worth every single cent!
NOT for sensitive skin 1/5
I was excited to try this for the convenience of not having to go into see a doctor for acne. But when I received the products they smelled SO strong of perfume. Perfume is an ingredient that makes me break out and irritates my skin so I certainly didn’t want it in an acne treatment. And if you have dry skin like I do there’s no way that that moisturizer would be enough for you, which makes me seriously doubt that the treatment was “customized” for my dry skin. And $30 a month is a lot of money to spend on a salicylic acid wash and a Benzoyl peroxide spot treatment, both of which you can buy for under $10 for full sized bottles.
Me acne 5/5
By jon bonet
Very good product I suggest using it!
BEST THING IN THE WORLD 5/5
YOU NEED THIS FOR YOUR FACE. don’t hesitate just try it!!! The best thing I could’ve tried for my face!! They literally customize it for my face and have a doctor I can talk to anytime if I have any questions!! This is the best thing you can do for yourself, you’ll get results fast!!! And it’s not like other acne medicine where you break out really bad first and for a long time before you see results, your face clears up right away!!
Amazing products, bad routine 3/5
MDAcne has some amazing products! Their products are filled with powerful acne fighting ingredients, soothing, natural moisturizers, and they’re all noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores) and comfortably lightweight. However they’re recommended routines are not good at all.
For example, take the routine recommended to me. For my moderate to severe acne, I was given a moisturizing face wash with salicylic acid in it to use twice a day, a benzoyl peroxide cream to use at night, and a moisturizer for the day. Here’s what’s wrong with that. First, I have been told all my life by dermatologists, friends, family, and even the internet to not use benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid on the same day or dryness and irritation can occur. Second, are they trying to make us wrinkle like raisins? Washing your face, even with a moisturizing wash, strips the skin of all it’s natural oils and moisture; therefore, it must be replaced in order to prevent wrinkling and dryness, so why do they recommend moisturizing only once a day? Third, the moisturizer I was provided was meant to be my daytime moisturizer, but it contains no sunscreen! I can’t believe any skincare professional would recommend not using sunscreen everyday.
I love their products, and the skin scanner is awesome as well, but I’m only using the products following my own, dermatologist recommended routine.
In short, I really recommend people to try this app out; however, everyone should be sure to talk to a dermatologist about enhancing the routine they recommend to better provide the daily skincare essentials.
These products are awesome! 5/5
By Rhyan D.
Absolutely love these products and the results I’m getting! It’s really affordable and worth every penny. The app is so easy to use and I love that you can ask questions to a real dermatologist. Everyone suffering with acne, dark spots and self-confidence with your skin...this app is for you!
Inaccurate Results 3/5
I like the idea of this app a lot but I don’t think the technology can yet differentiate scars, dark spots, certain freckles, etc from acne. My results told me that I had moderate acne (the scale goes: clear, mild, moderate, severe) when I have only one small zit on my forehead. I have oily/combo skin, clogged pores around my t-zone, occasional blackheads, but rarely suffer from a breakout. Like I said, I think this has the potential to be great, but I don’t think the technology is accurate enough to recommend products based on skin type yet.
The selfie analysis does not work if you have dark freckles. It mistook my freckles for acne!
Amazing Results 5/5
This product with its amazing graphics and how it’s only made for your will give you amazing results with your acne. When I first received my MDacne kit I was so excited, and I seen results overnight and I would truly recommend this to anyone with acne problems 😁
Surprised with results 4/5
Honestly when I downloaded this, I expected it to be a scam. But I’m pleasantly surprised with how well it has worked for me the past couple weeks. The first kit you get is only $9 for a test run. You won’t see results immediately, so don’t assume it’s not working at day 10. You have to stick with it to see results. I plan to stick with this app for a while longer to continue to treat my skin.
Great App for People Who Don’t Wash 2/5
I was excited about this app, since seeing a dermatologist in person is more expensive than $9 for the free trial. And the interface is really easy to use and pretty. But almost no matter what you select, they will recommend 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide treatment, 2% Salic Acid treatment, and a moisturizer. I already use these products, so to see them as my recommended treatment, I was extremely disappointed. It is also disappointing that most of my acne is on the sides of my face, but the analysis picture is supposed to be taken from the front. I feel two side pictures would be better than one front for people like me. The app didn’t seem to recognize that I had acne on my cheeks when I took the picture from the front, and I tried many angles and lightings to see if it would change. I feel that this app is deceiving users into thinking its acne treatment recommendations are more complex than they are, but at the same time, using BP and Salic Acid is great for many people who haven’t already tried it. If you don’t want to pay the fees once the “regular” price starts after the free trial, I would recommend Neutrogena Pore Cleanser/Mask for benzoyl peroxide and Neutrogena Oil-Free AcneWash with salicylic acid. Those plus a moisturizer would be an exact dupe for the products recommended by this app. However, the free trial for $9 isn’t a bad deal if you remember to cancel the prescription! Just keep your eyes open to how it really works.
Great product! 5/5
So far so good, less acne without dry skin or more breakouts!
Excellent product. 5/5
I’ve tried a lot of products including Proactive. And none has even come close to MDacne. The support staff and doctors are very personable and reliable. I strongly recommend trying there products.
Best skin products I've had in my life. My skin is clear and glowing after only three days of using. After spending tons of money on topical creams from dermatologists over the years I must say that this is the best I've ever had. Anyone who purchases won't be disappointed.
Best skin care products for acne!! 5/5
By (: kylee
This is the only product I have found to clear up my skin this good and so fast!
Don’t rely on this 1/5
The skincare analysis really needs some work. It saw my freckles as acne and tried to tell me it was severe. Really annoying, because I can’t get a recommendation since it doesn’t get a good reading of your skin.
You guys charged my card without permission. A total of $30.00 and for what? I still have enough treatment to last me another month. I didn’t want another package. I’m beyond ferocious. This is a scam and I want my money back.
This actually works... 4/5
I got the MDacne Kit a few months ago, 13 weeks ago to be exact, and since then I’ve had significant improvement. When I do have breakouts they don’t last nearly as long. I gave this 4 stars because I don’t use all the products. I only use the day and night cleanser, and then the night treatment. The moisturizer I was given dried my skin out completely and burned so I had to stop using it. After switching back to my original moisturizer my skin was fine in terms of dryness and the other two worked wonders.
Great program!! 4/5
I found MDacne through an Instagram ad, and I was so desperate to clear up my skin that I was willing to try anything. So I downloaded the app, did everything I was guided to do, and within the next 2 weeks I had a box with my very own skincare regimen shipped to me. I am SO glad I chose to try this program. This has been the most effective skincare routine for me by far—and I have tried nearly all of them. My skin still goes through ups and downs of course, but the ups last much longer and the downs are fewer and further between! If you’re trying to decide whether to try this out, my suggestion would be to go for it!
Freckles or acne? 2/5
I got this kind of as a joke just to see what it had to say. I did my scan and apparently all of my freckles are pimples. Everywhere that had a red square around it was a freckle. In fact my skin is 100% clear right now and according to this my “acne” severity is 8.1 haha. I just have a lot of freckles.
10/10 would recommend 5/5
By lexi idlett
i’ve has acne for years, and i could never find things to clear it up. i came across mdacne and decided to give it a shot and my skin started clearing up within the first week!
At least give it a try 5/5
By Sloth Kinng
The package comes in a box. The box itself is appealing and the product inside is probably the best I’ve used on the acne market. The first day washing my face with the cleanser was great it made me feel like a new person. I washed my face three times a day and it really helped me to feel cleaner and the annoying acne started fading as the days went on. I recommend this product to just about all my friends struggling because it really helps and if a flare up ever comes on again these are the people I’m going straight back to. If I could rate it any higher I would.
Analysis was completely wrong 1/5
This app detected all my freckles and a scab as acne. I tried the app just to see if it would help me with my black heads but instead it told me I had severe acne. I don’t currently have any breakout so I would say that analysis is incorrect.
Pretty good 3/5
By Gay jb
I can definitely see improvements fast. Nothing is making my skin oily or dry and it seems to be working so far.😊
Awesome acne product 5/5
I tried nutrogena, and proactiv. Nothing seem to work for my acne. This product didn’t work the first time, but since you can communicate with the dermatologist directly, I was abele to talk to them and was able to get my prescription readjusted. Now my face is clearer than ever.
The customer service is very attentive. They don’t wait for you to contact them, they will contact you and check on you. You can also submit your weekly progress pictures. They also educated me about ways to keep the acne away through my diet and lifestyle. They are the best!!
This app is amazing! I’ve been dealing with acne for about two years now and I can finally say I feel good about walking into public. This app has helped me get rid of something that killed my confidence. I can’t be more happy to use this app!
Love this app 5/5
This company is so active and involved in your whole journey. The app is so cool to take photos every night and see the progress of your skin and the difference the products make. Highly recommend!
Dark spot corrector 5/5
I’ve been using this product for about 2 weeks and I have to say this really works! I have a lot of post acne scars from when I was in my teens. Now they are starting to fade away! I would highly recommended this to anyone looking to fade dark spots away.!
The face scanner is not very accurate 1/5
It circled a pimple on my shirt and in my hair and recognized my freckles as pimples. Would not recommend.
Life Changer! 5/5
Before MDacne I didn’t have much hope for my acne, I had tried so many products that claimed to do so much good for my skin but they didn’t deliver. Essentially I was hesitant to give my money to some other company that claims to work but MDacne is the real deal. Not only does the app give you real dermatologists to talk to about your acne and ask for advice but they have trial size bottles of the customized product that are smaller so you can feel the water for a bit before you get the big ones. Their customized face wash, moisturizer, and acne cream work SO well. Right before I got my kit I also got a major painful pimple right on a smile line and I decided to try to pop it and right after popping it I put the acne cream on it as if a spot treatment cream and any signs of a pimple went away within a day! So glad I found MDacne.
This app helps with acne 5/5
At first I was skeptic of the app but after scanning my acne and receiving specific cleanser for it that worked. I’m happy to say that this app is legit and works wonders
This is not customized skincare 2/5
As someone very active on skincare blogs and subreddits, I wanted to give this app and its product a try. The app scans your face and overlays little shapes (that it does not explain but I assume are “supposed” to identify different types of acne?) over whatever acne spots your crummy front facing camera can pick up on. It then “personalizes” an acne treatment plan for you. This is neat if you’re just starting out with basic acne treatments or just have one type of acne/skin and don’t mind overpaying for the most basic skincare ingredients sold in every CVS. But if you’re someone seeking quality skincare that’s tailored to your skin and needs, just talk to a real dermatologist or do a ton of skincare research.
What I received from this company was some of the most HEAVILY FRAGRANCED product I’ve ever used on my face. Everything smelled like shampoo and hairspray, which means they’re adding totally unnecessary ingredients that may cause sensitivity just for an unnecessarily strong smelling product. Anyways, what I received was a runny salicylic acid cleanser, benzoyl peroxide treatment (which does stain clothing but to their credit, they warn you about this on the packaging), and a sticky, runny “soothing” moisturizer with no SPF protection. Now, I wouldn’t be dragging this company so hard if they didn’t cost as much as their skincare giant rivals who actually sell quality products, but MDAcne’s skin analysis and products are low-quality, poorly formulated, and just lazy. And just to reiterate this once more: all these active ingredients can be found in every drug store starting at $2+ for a month’s supply (please keep this in mind). No acne-focused skincare company should be using active ingredients this strong and instructing their clients to moisturize only once a day with a moisturizer that won’t even protect them from the sun. If you gather nothing more from my long review than this, PLEASE DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR SKIN TO SUN AFTER USING THESE PRODUCTS unless you use a decent moisturizer with SPF coverage first.
So to wrap up, I know I seem to contradict all these 5 star glowing reviews but the honest truth behind the success of this app is that anyone who commits to a regular skincare routine using quality active ingredients like retinol, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc. AND drinks 9 cups of water a day (as the app instructs) is going to see improved results.
If you want to improve your adult acne without the use of oral medications, then you’ll be stuck doing a regular skincare routine with topical treatments for the rest of your life like the rest of us, with or without MDAcne.
Oh and little FYI: I’ve seen better results and quality in OTC acne products like Differin and St. Ives, and in Korean skincare (like the Skinfood line) found at Ulta and Sephora.
My freckles 1/5
My friends had told me about these products but, When I did the analyzer it literally counted a whole lot of my freckles as pimples. Which there not, I love my freckles and until they add a another analyzers for people with amazing, awesome, gorgeous, Beautiful, and, lovely freckles I’m not buying any thing from ur app!
Skeptical at first but... 5/5
I was quite worried and skeptical. I tried proactiv and every other kind of remedy available and was met with terrible results. Proactiv irritated my skin. It burned and I had to discontinue use almost immediately.
But after a bout of antibiotics for almost 2 months, my skin reacted in the worse way: cystic acne. Something I never had before. It was painful, ugly and embarrassing. Most of all, it wasn’t going anyway. So I chose to try MDAcne. I thought “why not” at this point my skin was so bad I was willing to try anything.
The first good sign was that they had products for sensitivity. The second good sign was the price. The third sign was having Dr. Harth who is responsive and very helpful in explaining why my skin was drier at one point and how to tweak the medication to work for me.
Not even a month later and I look like a completely different person. I didn’t change my diet, didn’t change anything at all. Just stuck to the regimen. No irritation (other than dry skin) and best of all, the cystic acne is finally gone.
I have no acne 5/5
I have no acne or pimples really but this face said I had 8.5 acne severity. I think it thought my freckles were acne? Only have a few around my nose though.
Working well so far!!
It seemed real until the end where they said they would email results so I put in my email and then they asked for password. Why would they ever need my password that’s such a scam please don’t fall for it. The five star reviews are clearly fake.
Truly Life Changing 5/5
I have been suffering with acne for years. I’ve tried both prescription and otc topical products and MDACNE is by far the most effective! I put off trying these products because the main ingredients are salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide and I have tried those before. But these products are medical grade and have cleared my skin as well as improved the texture of my skin. These products are also customized for you as an individual. I also love that the dermatologist will check with you from time to time.
No just no... 1/5
Don’t buy this product, complete scammers and extremely harmful chemicals.
Awesome product. 5/5
I’ve been using McAcne for 10 months now. Though at one point my skin started drying up real bad as we were bout to hit winter season. I messaged Dr. Harth about my concerns in hopes he could help me with it. He responded quickly and gave me some advice and a night cream to use every other night aside from my daily routine. If I’m being honest, I stopped using my day cream. I use my day/night wash and my night cream (before bed). I wake up, wash my face with cool water and use a moisturizer by neutrogena (clear face SPF30) break-out free liquid lotion sunscreen through out the day. Also great before foundation (if ever you decide to wear makeup).
I’m not saying to stop using your day cream. Everyone’s skin is not the same, just like their skin care products. Whatever works for you, great! Don’t hesitate to message the Doctors if you can’t seem to find the right routine for you!
Thank you McAcne! I’ve never felt so confident about my facial skin since middle school! I appreciate all the help I’ve received and I’m definitely gonna continue using your products! THANK YOU! 😁✊🏼
Great products! 5/5
By nayev pumphrey
I love MDacne. I’ve been using the moisturizer, night cream, and cleanser for about a year now and my skin has changed drastically. I also just got the dark spot remover cream and I saw a difference after one night! You should definitely use
Oil free sunscreen 5/5
Love the oil free sunscreen I feel very protected
STAY AWAY 1/5
they took my money and never sent me my treatment package! This app and its developers are terrible, it would be wise to just stay away all together
Why I chose not to 2/5
So I was listening to the commercial and I realized that the guy speaking was gay so I didn’t get the all.
Best acne cared 5/5
On April I was having an acne breakout. I was using another acne product at that time, and It didn’t work the only thing it did was make my skin dry. Towards the end of the month my acne was so bad, I didn't know what to do. Until I seen an AD about MDacne. I felt so confident and relief when I bought it. When it arrived on May 1st my acne was just getting worse and worse. I would have pimples around my mouth, my forehead, and my cheeks. When I try it for the first 2 days my acne stop producing. After the next 5 days my acne had decreased dramatically by a lot I went from having like around 15 pimples to just 5. A week later I still have around 3 pimples. But my skin is so much cleaner. I just love this acne program, it really saved my skin. I would highly recommend to my friends or anyone with acne problems.
When I got the app, it was very professional. Everything was amazing until I had to take the picture. The scanners counted my freckles as acne, so it didn’t give me an accurate picture. (Because my whole face is just freckles)
Spot Treatment! 5/5
The acne pimple patches that. Received worked wonders and I am very satisfied what the product as well as the customer service!
Really does work 5/5
I have struggled with acne for a long long time and I’ve tried almost every product out there and this one works really well. My skin have never been clearer or more moisturized. The customer service is also amazing and very supportive. I highly, highly recommend this app and it’s products
Truly Deceiving 1/5
I heard about this app and I thought it was genius, I immediately downloaded it. Although, I will admit I really love their products, however this company is scamming their “patients” and their customer service is terrible. You have to talk to a “doctor” and it takes at least 6 hours to get a response. The whole picture analysis thing is cool and I have nothing against their products although they charge $90 for one set of the cleanser, treatment cream, and a moisturizer over the course of 3 months and try to pass it off like it’s a deal??? that’s an outrageous amount to pay when you could go to a REAL IN PERSON dermatologist for half that price and get CUSTOMIZED PRODUCTS that your health insurance covers!!!! I was very disappointed to discover that this company charged me an additional $30 per month even when I was not going to receive any products. RIDICULOUS !!!
