Finding an acne cure on eBay is more difficult than going through the local drug store, as you're going to have a ton of choices. Not only will you find the standard over-the-counter cleansers and cremes, you'll also find stuff like this.

While it isn't necessarily addressed within the context of the auction itself, it begs the question - if it's so effective, why isn't it in stores everywhere? According to the information on the auction, it's designed to work by gently exfoliating dead skin while reducing scars, acne, and wrinkles. Sounds quite promising, although against conventional wisdom which suggests that one should use multitude of products from soaps to astringents.

Supporters may the product isn't sold mainstream because of some conspiracy to keep products like this out of the market, due to influence of big name pharmaceutical companies. After all, a product like this isn't mentioned in any of the skin care guides. But then, if the product has been on the market for 12 years and it still hasn't caught on yet, does that tell you something?

Not to mention that it doesn't go into the various factors that influence acne - stress, hormonal balance, diet...
