Which Acne Product Should I Choose?

Liquimat: Primarily a make-up with acne medication.

  1. caryesings

    I had problems with big painful zits until my mid-20’s when I found rezamid. I am very light skinned so initially bought it because of the “tint it yourself” aspect. For me, no tint added at all was actually the right color. Wore as my only makeup and as a base when “real” makeup needed including stage makeup. Over the years I would think I would have finally outgrown the breakouts and would stop using the rezamid briefly only to find it really was the rezamid that was stopping them in their tracks. Even helped my skin through menopause transition. I no longer need it but am very thankful for 30 years of an excellent, reliable product.

  2. Neta

    I was introduced to Rezamid Acne Lotion when I was 18 years old and I turned 68 in April so I have used it for 50 years! It has been my base make-up and I have gotten many compliments on how nice my make-up looks over the years. It even does a wonderful job of covering “age spots”. Over the past 10 years several pharmacies in my area have quit carrying Rezamid. Recently I could find no one to order it from but thanks to the internet I was able to order it for the first time in 50 years from Summers Laboratories. I was thankful as I thought maybe it had maybe been discontinued but found it available by mail! It came promptly by mail and was even several dollars cheaper that I had been paying at a local pharmacy. Thank You!

  3. Sapat

    This was recommended by my dermatologist after I complained of oily skin (with acne as well). I use under my makeup and it acts as a primer. It has worked better than any matte primer or other product claiming to do the same thing. I have not experienced any excessive dryness or peeling. Very pleased with this product and the results. My only complaint is the smell. It has a very strong sulfur smell that makes me very self-conscious. I feel like I am giving off a nasty scent although those close to me say they can’t smell it. I would definitely recommend this product.

  4. Anne63

    I have been using Rezamid for years and it’s a perfect solution for me. I have both oily skin AND Rosacea acne and Rezamid is integral to helping keep my skin clear. I find that Rezamid helps reduce excess oil during the day as well as medicating against acne outbreaks. I’m a natural redhead and have fair skin. I use Rezamid straight out of the container with nothing added and it’s a perfect shade for my skin. I use a foundation brush to apply a thin layer and it goes on smoothly and evenly. This is a great product.

  5. DeeH

    I purchased Rezamid due to my mature skin, I am 59, and continue to have break outs and whiteheads. After trying different products I thought why not one more!
    Rezamid is quite the powerhouse worker is sucking up excess oil without drying out my skin. The texture and tone have improved in a couple of weeks using the product. My 16 year old Granddaughter tried my Rezamid for the 4 days she was visiting. We noticed a good improvement in her skin is this short time. She went home with my bottle and I plan to purchase another for myself.

  6. Goosie

    If a new breakout is coming, just a little bit of Rezamid keeps it from getting bigger. Make sure you wash your face at least twice a day with a gentle cleanser. Use a tiny bit of Rezamid on the spot before you put your makeup on. A thin layer of Rezamid is better – it allows the spot to dry out. I can’t live without this stuff. I’m 63 and live in a warm climate, so breakouts still happen. A bottle lasts me for quite a while, so it is a good value.

  7. Nurse1969

    When I was 18 years old and just starting my nursing education I had a moderate case of acne. I heard from a friend my age that Rezamid Acne Lotion was the best acne lotion to use. I was able to get it at a pharmacy. It cleared up my face! I have used it ever since and I am now 70 years old! Even though I don’t have problems with acne now, I use it as a base makeup as it keeps the oil on my face and the occasional pimple under control. I now order it online from Summers Laboratories 4 bottles at a time. I am so thankful that they still make it and I can order it delivered to my door! Thank you Summers Laboratories!!!

  8. CyberGal

    I have oily skin that tends to break out sometimes. I love this product because it prevents blemishes and it heals those that already exist (all while covering up any redness that might be there). I don’t know how good it would work for severe acne, but for oily skin with occasional breakouts, this is a great product. I don’t have to adjust the color, but I can because it comes with a packet that allows you to adjust to make it darker. A bottle lasts a long time too! Rezamid and a little facial powder and I’m good to go!

  9. tina

    I ve been using this for 26 years under my makeup..keeps me from getting oily..and blemish free..cant use benzoporoxide swells my eye lids up.this is great alternative.sulfer is better. Love it!!

  10. PeekaBoo

    Repeat purchase…this lotion is surprising! Though quite watery, it is very good at not only drying up pimples but covering them with a matte finish. Even the “oozy” ones are no match for Rezamid. I use this when I am actively breaking out and use Liquimat when I have few spots. If I am not going out I use it as a spot treatment, but if I am planning an outing during the day I mix a little bit with sunscreen and use it over my face. I am lucky that the color matches my skin straight (no mixing the added tint), so I can’t speak to how well the color mixing works…

  11. Jennifer

    I bought Rezamid because I have adult acne and have tried just about every product on the market. Most of them dry my skin out so badly that it looks even worse. Rezamid dries without scaling, redness, etc.

  12. PeekaBoo

    I have been buying Rezamid for over a year now, and have nothing but praise. First, it is an excellent drying lotion and clears pimples quickly. Second (and most surprisingly), it works amazingly as a make-up! I have an unusual but effective way of applying Rezamid: first, I take a squirt of my preferred medium (either sunscreen for daytime or lotion for night), and then I add just enough Rezamid to mix for color. After it is mixed, I apply it like a BB cream. It not only absorbs brilliantly, it also covers any spots and evens out my skin tone.

  13. at2017

    My face has both oily skin and acne rosacea. I use this product daily as my make-up and it has been a very significant factor in controlling both conditions. I am also very fair-skinned, a natural redhead. I use this product straight out of the bottle without having to add any further tinting and it is perfect for my skin complexion. However, I like the fact that the tint of the product can be personally customized with the tinting agent included in the box. I love this product and don’t know what I would do without it. I highly recommend it.

  14. kimbo

    I’ve been using this product for over 35 years! It is the best way to fight my acne problems. The bottle lasts about six months and the price is reasonable. Love the color to…really blends well with makeup.

  15. Ak34

    Perfect foundation for people with adult acne! This smoothes our the complexion while covering and treating blemishes. I have used Liquimat by the same company since I was a teenager and switched to Rezamid when adult acne set it in my 40’s. I will never use anything else – does not look caked on and it does not accentuate any lines or wrinkles with a good moisturizer underneath. I can not say enough about this product!!

  16. WntrPkg8rl

    I’m a long time Liquimat user who bought Rezamid with trepidation – would it be as good as my Liquimat? I’ve been using Rezamid before bed and Liquimat during the day and this has been working great for me. I have very oily skin and the Rezamid definitely controls it at night so I don’t wake up with greasy skin. I love Summers Labs products and have been using them for many years – good stuff!

  17. Sallysunbunny

    I have suffered from cystic acne since my teen years and am now 75 years old. During this time I’ve probably tried every prescription drug and over-the-counter treatment. Rezamid hasn’t cured my problem, but it manages the severity. It helps with the swelling, dries it up, and minimizes the eruptions. I would highly recommend it. It is one of the few things that works well in difficult cases

  18. Chuck

    I’ve been buying this product for almost 20 years give or take I have rosacea and it works very well to either clear up or cover up two very good product to use for cover up and it blends in works very well with your skin tone very happy customer with this product and I will continue to buy this product from now until whenever Thank You summers laboratory

  19. brina

    It is great to be able to hide my red spots without causing more chaos under the skin! You can match this to your skin quite well and it does work to dry the blemishes. I choose to use it just on the spots as it is for really oily skin if you want to use it all over but I am not a teenager anymore and this works so well using this way for me.

  20. Fran

    I like it because it heals my skin very well. When I was 13 years old, my doctor gave me a script for Loroxide, and I used that all the time. I know they do not make it anymore, but that is what worked on my skin, and Rezamid works like the Loroxide and that is why I bought this a few times and will be buying it again. I am now 62 years old.

  21. Elizabeth II

    Purchased 2 bottles this time. Rezamid (without any color matcher added) matches my skin tone perfectly. I apply before I go to bed. Also using a small lip brush dipped in Rezamid, I use it over my foundation on the red cysts spots that show through – it blends without any streaking and dries fast and the red spots are gone.

  22. Choose Jesus

    I have dermatitis, which stays red along with acne like bumps. This clears it up and covers it up until it gets well. It works great, it can be drying, so don’t use a lot at one time. I apply a small dot with a q-tip and smooth out with my finger. Works great!!

  23. Dr B

    Sulfur is a great treatment for acne in both teenagers and adults.I am a dermatologist and almost always prescribe some type of sulfur product when I treat acne or rosacea. Resamid is one of my favorite products. I use it myself and have done so for years.

  24. Borgia

    I have been using Rezamid since a teenager. I have extremely sensitive and oily skin. This is the only product I have found that does not make my skin itch and it dries up any breakouts that occur. I would highly recommend this product.

  25. Paul

    When you first introduced your product my sister-in-law went through a terrible time with her face. The first week she used this product her face cleared-up and we use it anytime it is needed. I am 70 and still use it. Thanks!

  26. eileen

    I have bought Rezamid several times. I use it day and night. Any blemishes I start to get I put Rezamid on immediately. It clears my skin instantly. When I am finished with my bottle, I order one again. It’s super lotion.

  27. Lexy

    I started using this recently that I’ve known about it for a long time. My dermatologist recommended it for problem spots right when I see them, and they clear up faster. The product works well under my foundation

  28. C Ritchie

    I have had active acne for many years. I’ve even had three treatments of Accutane. While my acne is now not as bad as it was, no topical medication was as effective as Rezamid Lotion. I highly recommend it.

  29. SAR916

    I’ve been using Rezamid for over 30 years in place of a cosmetic cover-up. The product reduces facial shine and evens out skin tone. It never dried my skin, since it doesn’t have any of the more aggressive OTC acne ingredients, & probably won’t even touch more severe acne. But it still can be an effective cover-up. I was lucky to only have mild cases of acne, but my children required other meds including prescriptions. They occasionally put Rezamid over their prescriptions to cover blemishes.
    I recommend the company add more of the tint. Lately, it seems that when the entire contents of tint is added, my face is still a little too light/peachy, and I’m fair skinned. Also, for the longest time, I hoped for a flip cap or other design on the bottle top. Daily use does tend to make the container and sink area messy, with some of the product being wasted.
    Rezamid is worth a try. Unfortunately, there aren’t many products that work on more moderate cases of acne, with effective skin matching qualities. It’s quite expensive if ordered in the pharmacy, and best if ordered online.

  30. Happi

    I have used Rezamid acne lotion for 20+ years and it hides and eventually dries any acne I get. The tint-adjustable makeup works for my skin tone as my skin tone changes throughout the seasons.

  31. Robbie

    This was recommended by my Dermatologist, I tried it and never stopped using it. It dries and get rid of your acne. I use to buy it from the doctors office now I hust purchase it on this site.

  32. jewel155

    Helped stop scar producing breakouts. Nice, fresh cover that helps keep my skin clear. I find that applying to just washed, damp skin helps spread easier on my face. it’s worth the effort!

  33. Lucy

    I’ve used Rezamid for a long time and the dermotologists I’ve seen all recommend it. It does not dry out the skin. I wish the product incorporated an SPF factor for sun protection.

  34. Dmarie123

    I bought this product because the idea of a tinted treatment was very appealing. The color was super pink and the product didn’t really work. I would not buy this product again.

  35. Madeline

    I have used this product for over 40 years. I used to need a prescription for it when I was a teenager but no more. It works so well, not a day goes by that I don’t use it.

  36. tina

    This is a great product i ve been using it over 20 years i wear it under my makeup for added oil control .iam. Benzol proxide sensitive thank goodness i found this product

  37. karenS

    When you need a concealer that also helps with healing – nothing I’ve tried is better.
    You can blend it to match your skin tone and avoid the pasty or orange look.

  38. marilynt

    I have been using this product for over 30 years. It has a proven track record and recommended it to many. Not just for the outbreak but keep the acne away.

  39. Dottie

    Wrote a long 5 star review for Liquimat, but it wasn’t used, so I won’t take the time to write about Rezamid which I have used successfully for many years!

  40. Tabitha

    She’s been using this product for around 2 1/2 months. Cleared the acne up fast and loves that it also conceals not having to wear anything else!!

  41. hoss

    I’ve used this for years to control adult acne. It works. Could use a better way to apply, but small problem for product that actually works.

  42. LoveRezamid

    It’s cleared up persistent acne on my upper lip. I use it nightly and can’t go without it! Please don’t discontinue or change the formula!

  43. Zit free

    On days of presentations or important meetings I knew the coverage would get me through.

  48. Stella

    I am 71 and have been using Rezamid since I was 20. I have oily skin and use it only for make up. It certainly works for me!

  49. isabella

    Purchased a month ago and really helps to keep oiliness at bay. Great for spot treating and concealing problem areas.

    Rezamid sometimes dries the skin horribly. It also has left sizable red spots on my skin where used. It looks like it burned off the outer layer of skin. The spots are permanent.

  75. Robert Samuel (verified owner)

  76. John Murphy (verified owner)

    It dries out the skin. It burns the outer layer of skin which opens up the layers under the surface to infections. The alcohol content in the product is too powerful. There should also be an SPF feature in the lotion. The lotion leaves burn marks on the face and permanent scars.

  77. Patricia McCallister (verified owner)

  78. Holly (verified owner)

    My dermatologist originally suggested this product and I have used it for several years. I use it like a foundation and it keeps my face oil free all day. I also apply it at night after washing. It does a good job of controlling breakouts and covering/healing minor issues.

    I prefer to buy Rezamid directly from Summers Labs, to get fresh product, and they’ve always provided quick shipping. I’m a happy, repeat customer!

    I’ve been using Rezamid for fifty years. I have very sensitive, acne prone skin. This is the only makeup and acne lotion my skin can tolerate. It covers any acne that might occur while healing my skin breakouts at the same time. I’ve tried other products over the years but nothing works like Rezamid. It is the only skin makeup I use.
