Description

Benefits:

Some acne spot treatments contain high doses of the acne medication Benzoyl Peroxide, which can irritate skin. It can also cause redness and dryness, which can make acne worse. Our formula contains just 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, yet is clinically proven to be so effective that skin starts getting clearer on day 1 – all without over-drying, stinging or burning skin.

This fast working formula is so lightweight that it quickly absorbs into skin. And it goes deep down to the pores to kill the acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps to prevent new ones from forming.

  • Oil-free
  • Non-comoedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

Honestly I've been using this on the spot for a while and I'll be honest...I'm not sure if it actually works but it feels good when applied. I don't think it actually does much for me.

I use this product every time I get a breakout and it really really works! I can put this on and an hour or so later my breakout is nearly gone! This is good stuff.

This is a very good product! Takes some time to clear up acne but is definitely effective! I found this in my local drugstore! This is gentle but make sure to wash it off and will stain fabric if left on. Good price.

Meh. It works sometimes, sometimes it doesn't. It was cheap, so i guess you get the quality for what you paid for. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Very disappointed.

If you weren't satisfied with this product, which ones would you recommend?
I have very sensitive skin. Most acne treatments are too harsh on my skin. Do you think this would work for me?

I don't have acne, just one or so breakouts, would you recommend this as a quick, fast, and simple product for that? I know it does depends on skin type.
