I like this cream. My skin tends to go through phases where it will look absolutely amazing for about 1-3 weeks and then will breakout for 1-2 weeks. When I bought this it was an especially bad breakout and I needed a new night cream for winter, so I decided to try it. I can't say for sure if it's all that helpful for acne, just because of how unpredictable my skin can be even without changing anything to my routine, but it seems to help. It hasn't caused anything negative that I can tell. The only downside I can say about it is that is has a slightly strong floral smell, kind of like roses.
