    What does it do?

    Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian formula is particularly suited to cases that are characterized by noncystic acne, abundant pimples, blackheads or bumps associated with adolescence. It is suitable for a range of skin issues that manifest in itching, redness, and fit into the pattern that Chinese medicine ascribes to heat and/or dampness.

    According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the skin is associated with the lung and body fluids, and noncystic acne is often associated with heat and dampness. The redness is related to heat, and the tendency to present with a greasy complexion and pustules is associated with dampness. Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian is made up of natural Chinese herbs that deals with the root cause by clearing heat and eliminating dampness from the skin.

    Zhen Zhu, true pearl, is one of Chinese medicine's most famous agents for improving the facial complexion, and it is often incorporated into skin and beauty products. Pearl clears heat and brightens the skin while improving the skin's tone and texture. When taken internally, it also improves the skin at the deepest possible level.

    Pu Gong Ying (Dandelion), Jin Yin Hua (Honeysuckle flower), Ye Ju Hua (Wild Chrysanthemum flower), Zi Hua Di Ding (Violet), and Tian Kui Zi (Semiaquilegia root) are all herbs that are found together in the classical formula Wu Wei Xiao Du Yin (Five Ingredient Toxin-Dispersing Beverage). These herbs clear heat and resolve toxins, and they are particularly suited to skin conditions that manifest with redness and/or signs of damp-heat.

    Chi Shao (Red Peony), Mu Dan Pi (Moutan cortex), and Dan Shen (Salvia root) are cooling herbs that move the blood, and together they clear deep-lying heat from the channels of the face. Dan Shen also improves the circulation of blood into the body's tiny capillaries to nourish the skin.

    Di Fu Zi (Kochia fruit) helps the other herbs to target the skin, and it clears dampness and heat from the skin. Bei Sha Shen (Glehnia root) nourishes the lung yin, which helps the skin to stay lustrous and nourished.

    AcniPearl™ (Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healing Properties! For a very moderate and very annoying case of acne: 1. Results become apparent in about a month, but you may see improvement after one week 2. You may still have acne, but it will heal much faster 3. For women - take it through at least one cycle 4. If you take any other Active Herb, you may decrease dosage to three tablets three times a day and still see results 5. If you use topical products, continue using them. Especially moisturizers, as AcniPearl may dry out the acne, and all remedies that remove spots on your skin. I use a Hyaluronic Acid serum with vitamin C and the Neutrogena acne stress control remedies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Miracle! I can't remember a time in my life where my skin has been clear. I have suffered from acne for 23 yrs. As an adult this is frustrating. I have spent hundreds on various treatments, including accutane and laser therapy. I am on my third bottle of this product and I can't believe the difference already. My back and chest acne are gone. My face is still healing but I have not had a cystic pimple since I have been taking this. I am still getting small zits once in awhile but my face is no longer covered with them every morning. I can't wait to see how I my skin will be after three more bottles. I will take this forever if I have to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing that has helped me I love this product. I did not have great results over night but after taking them for about 3/4 months now I can tell that my acne has improved by 80/90%. The only thing that has helped me before was accupuncture in combination with chinese herbal tea. However I had to quit after a few weeks because of the high cost. The results of that threatment have lasted for about a year. However I saw my acne gradually coming back. That is why I started taking these and I can now see that my acne is getting less and less with every cycle. I have positive hopes that my acne might finally completely clear up because of these! :) Also no side-effects at all!!!! Perfect remedy for my moderate acne that has been really hard to get rid off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Pleased. I purchase the product to treat pimples. I began to see improved changes while on the use of my third bottle of this product.. My skin began to clear up nicely. Black marks are clearing up as well. Though pimples are still showing up, I believe it will get better as I continue the use of the product and more so cut down on oily, sweet and junk foods. Unfortunately I ran out of the product and was without for a week but I have received my new supply. I usually take six tablets twice daily. I do love this product. It does what it says - check it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pimples on teenage humans! :) I have two teenage children who have developed acne issues. Unfortunately for them their only recourse has been to use zit cover-up cream. I recall how embarrassing it was to have pimples growing up and I hoped this formula would help. About halfway through a single bottle using the recommended dose their skin started to clear up. After a bottle and a half their acne was gone and they felt so much better and more confident. AcnePearl really works! I wish I would have known about this 30 years ago!
