Upon receiving the sample, I immediately used as I'm experiencing hormonal imbalance and resulted to really big pimples which I'm not used to. I applied it before bedtime and noticed that my pimples immediately dries out the vey next day and totally healed within 3 days of continuous application. I also use it as primer before applying make up on mornings and I'm impressed as it really did a great job! I have a shine free face almost throughout the day. I really love this product but also concern if it will have adverse affect on long term use as primer since it contains alcohol.

I have used this gel on the pimples in my chest area. After two applications, I noticed that the pimples dried up. I also tried applying it on my face before doing my make up in the morning. I like that its dries up quickly. Normally, my face is so oily by lunch time especially on the t-zone area. Having used this product, my face looks dewy but not oily which is good. The gel has a bit of sting when applied on the pimples but goes off quite quickly. One thing that could be improved is the scent as it is smells like an alcohol.

I had really bad acne around my waist and above my buttocks, so I used this for that. It applies smoothly but you need to let it dry for a bit to ensure that the product stays put. After four days of religiously applying it thrice a day, my pimples have all but subsided. All I'm left with now are some dark markings, but the inflammation has gone down. I also tried it as a spot treatment for my face. Cystic acne calmed down faster, while the angry pimples dried out really fast. I will keep the rest on hand for PMS acne!

It delivers what it promise. For the first two days of application, it effectively dries up pimples instantly. And after more than a week of use, dark spots lessen, and my face felt smoother. No more oily skin when I use this as a primer before applying my make up. It doesn't sting upon application and I find it very gentle yet effective in preventing and drying up pimples. This is a must try for people having problems with too oily skin.

I like this gel because it is effective in curing my acne. And I received it when I needed it most, which is during my period when zits are active. What I like most about this product is that it is very gentle, it doesn't sting and it has a cooling effect.

I don't have any acne, so I used this to control the oiliness on my face instead. After application, it has a tingly, icy feel on my face, but is quickly absorbed. It does help lessen the shine of my face. Definitely a must keep.

VMV Hypoallergenics ID Monolaurin Gel does lessen the bumps and redness of my pimples. It is cool upon application, then after a while you can feel a slight stinging sensation. As to shine control, I have a combination skin and I see a slight difference from before. It is gentle to the skin, and the slight stinging sensation is fine with me since it last for only a short time. I just have a bit of difficulty with regards the packaging. It is somewhat hard to dispense the right amount, but aside form that, this product is really effective.

I find the packaging really nice and compact. Upon looking at the label, I was surprised that it is made here in the Philippines. Very timely, I got pimples emerging when I received this, so I immediately tried it. It has a cooling sensation with a little sting. The effect was not immediate and you have to wait a few days for the pimples to subside. I was afraid to use it as mattifier as my face tends to be dry after wash, but how would I know if I haven't try this, right? So I did. Unfortunately, it did dry my face a bit, but it also lessen the oiliness at the end of the day.

I sometimes have chicken skin on my legs due to shaving and on my arms due to weather changes. I have tried different oils and lotions to prevent having these, but none of it worked. After using VMV gel, I noticed that the chicken skin on my legs and arms are slowly decreasing and becoming unnoticeable already. I like that it is not sticky upon application. I loved that it is gentle on my sensitive skin. Plus, my legs and arms are now smoother even with the changing weather. I will definitely buy after I used up the sample.

I was a monolaurin gel user a few years ago. I just rekindled my love after I have used it again through ordering a sample here at Sample Room. It is very gentle on the face, scent is mild and it clears minor pimples in just a day or two. I have very oily skin and it mattifies the face for a few hours for me. I have not experienced any breakouts nor allergies in using this. This product really worked! I will definitely repurchase.

By the seventh day of using this product, I am so amazed on what kind of magic this product has. I applied this product on my zits, and just the next day, the redness and the bumps are gone! Although it didn't heal my full big pimple on my nose, it some what lessen the redness of it, and it also didn't hurt as much as before anymore. I also applied it on my knees, and I am also amazed on how quick it softened the chicken skin around my knees. I've been embarrassed about my knees ever since, as it was really rough, but not anymore! Though it didn't relly removed all the chicken skin, atleast I know that this product really worked. Overall, I will definitely continue using this, and buy more once my sample got used up already.

I have been a loyal user of toothpaste to dry out my pimples. It really worked! So when I saw that VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel is being offered at Sample Room, I decided to try it and do a comparison. I had a pimple on my forehead, well not yet a pimple, but a reddish bump that will soon become a pimple. I dabbed a small amount of the Gel on my pimple and experienced a slight stinging sensation. I left it on overnight. The following day, sometime in the afternoon, I did notice that the pimple became ripe but dry, dry enough for me to just gently touch it and remove its surface. So with that, I guess that that's the drying powers of this gel. Toothpaste is still a cheaper alternative, but I highly recommend this product for those with extra budget.

VMV Hypoallergenics is one of the brand I trust. I remember that it was the only cosmetics brand I used when I started wearing makeup. I was definitely excited when I found out that the mystery sample I got was from VMV Hypoallergenics. I received the Monolaurin gel just the right time since I have 2 pimples on my cheeks that specific moment. I immediately put the product to the test. It has a slight alcoholic scent, but it wasn't too strong to be bothering. There was no stinging sensation, nor was there any dryness or redness in the area where I applied it. The next day, the smaller pimple was gone. The cystic one disappeared in less than a week. I also used the gel on a rash on my arm, and it worked too. All in all, this is a handy product to have around. It is also great that I only have to use a very small amount to get the results. A little goes a long way.

I've been using VMV products for the past couple of years, and I must say that their products always delivers! I don't usually have breakouts, but sometimes I do have some bumps in my face due to accumulation of oil in my pores. When I used this product along with their facial wash, I noticed that the bumps were reduced after just 5 days of usage. It worked best when I applied it after I washed my face in the evening. Alternatively, I tried it also before applying my makeup in the morning. It definitely helped in oil control especially in the T-zone are. Like the other VMV products, it is very gentle on the skin. I'll purchase one after I used up my sample.

I don't really use skin care products, but I really like this product. It worked both as moisturizer and a toner. I find this product effective, as my face felt more supple and soft as compared to when I use my current toner. I also find myself applying generous amount of the product, so obviously, the sample I got will run out fast! It felt like I got really addicted or my skin got really thirsty about this product, as this gave me great results. It can somehow be a good thing, but could also be a bad thing, but whether or not, I still loved it! This product could be a bit pricey compared to the other brands, but all of the pennies spent to this will all be worth it once you tried it!

VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel is very effective in shine control. I used this to replace my toner before applying moisturizer. My face stayed shine free for hours. I was expecting a bit of sting because this is meant really as an antibacterial and anti viral sanitizer gel, but it doesn't sting a bit. It also didn't break me out, so I will definitely repurchase this.

I'm liking this VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel. I was hesitant to try it at first, as my skin is very sensitive to everything. I was pleasantly surprised how much I like it when I used it on my chest, back and face. It is very easy to apply, dries easily, plus the matte like finish afterwards is very interesting. I have tried using it before sleeping, and using it as a base for my make up which didn't occur any negative reactions. I will definitely repurchase for future use.

I was really planning on buying this a few times already, but I was hesitant because I haven't tried any of their products yet. And I was so happy that I got the chance to try it! It was really gentle on the face, and since I have an acne prone skin, I really want a product that would help me prevent or even stop them from coming out, and this was actually effective. It helped me prevent my face from getting too oily throughout the day, and it even dries out my pimple faster than the usual.
