Vilantae is a natural multivitamin designed for acne sufferers. The manufacturers say it is the second most effective acne treatment in the world to Accutane, however without the side effects that the latter drug can provide for some users.
Each bottle of Vilantae contains around 400 capsules that last about 3-4 weeks, depending on the extent of your acne. The manufacturers advise that in the first week, you only need to take around ten pills a day, for your body to get used to taking them. From then on in for at least 3-4 months, you must take a total of 20 pills a day, five pills four times a day at different intervals throughout the day, and daily too. There is no need to take these pills with meals. Taking Vilantae with water is just as fine.
The number of capsules you need to take in a day, for the first 3-4 months.
Now does it work? With severe, cystic acne on the face, neck and back for a small period of time, I would have to say that for me, Vilantae did work. Now being completely off Vilantae, I still get a few pimples around my neck, and maybe a few on my face, yet when you know your body, you can get to the root cause as to when acne strikes afterwards. The reasons are usually stress, diet, lack of sleep and just before that "time of the month" for women. Vilantae also worked as a multivitamin while it was reducing skin oil to prevent acne and breakouts.
The number you need to take at once, and with a glass of water is just fine.
It can be full on diarising and making sure that you take your 20 pills a day, especially if your life is not routine. You can discreetly take them before going out. For me, there were no major side effects except for the desire to drink more water, and the need to go to the toilet more often. It is only for at least three months, and then the manufacturers advise you to cut down on maintenance doses of 4-15 pills a month. You can only purchase Vilantae online at this stage.
Knowing this info, Vilantae is also just as great as a multivitamin.
For those of you who live in the USA or the UK, your supply of Vilantae arrives quite quickly. However for those of us in Australia, it usually takes three weeks for your next batch of pills to arrive from the date of ordering them. If you miss a day or two in the three month period, it makes a huge difference as your skin breaks out big time in the first 3-4 months. The latter also occurs within the first month, despite taking 20 pills a day, where your acne becomes worse before it becomes better. This is where you need to be online and ordering your Vilantae every couple of weeks if the auto ship program does not resonate with you.

I found that if I ate, exercised and slept well during the periods of taking Vilantae, there were hardly any pimples on my face; probably only about two max. This is where Vilantae is perfect and works wonders in clearing acne. It is still helpful to cleanse, tone and moisturise your face twice a day, and avoid touching your face to keep acne away as well. You can't always control stressful situations, and as a journalist, you cannot always control deadlines; they're part of the territory to such work.
