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

How To Use :

  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

I liked the on the spot treatment however, I feel it was a little strong for my skin. With that being said, I do have sensitive skin so I do not blame the product.

Great for small blackheads or anything that needs a good zap. I always use it either in the morning under my makeup or night before bed & always see good results!

It did not really work out for me. The Neutrogena On-the-Spot Maximum Strength Effectiveness Acne Treatment did not work at all. I used it as a spot treatment for my acne, but all it did was irritate my skin. I would use it as directed. I am someone who would always do things as directed. It just did not work for me. The acne I had was not severe at all and I thought that this would work for them, but they did not. I think a mask treatment would do better as a spot treatment than this on-the-spot treatment.

I was satisfied because it cleared my skin all up within 3 days and I have prom so it was really great! My dermatologist actually suggested it to me. My skin is usually oily so this product dries it up. However, read the directions or consult your dermatologist because everyone has different skin, if you complain about ichy and dryness then stop using (which it says or to consult physician) you may be using it too much I do it when I wake up and take my shower before I use it. Then another time before I go to bed to get rid of my make up and such. Trust me the results are phenomenal.

I have been using this product for about a week now, I use it at night after I cleanse my face with their non-transparen't bar. This product is really nice, I have extremely sensitive skin and am not a fan of using spot treatments because of that, but this treatment is very gentle on the skin and it reduces the redness from the acne and acne scars I have. I only use this once a day, and usually at night because that is when your skin renews itself. I find this is the best way from over drying my face and irritating it. This product gets rid of my pimples, brightens my skin, and reduces redness, so why wouldn't I want to recommend this to a friend? I love this product! :)

I love this stuff. It is a must have item in my medicine cabinet. As soon as I feel a pimple start to form or if one pops up I just put some of this on it and it’s gone in a day.

It’s a decent spot treatment, great to put on before bed at night so it can work it’s magic while you sleep - but be careful, benzoyl peroxide can bleach fabric!

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.
