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

this is one of the best acne treatments, i bought it from meijr and wasn't really sure it'll work the way i want it too. The price is good for what it does, i always use it when i break down and i was never disappointed. Definitely recommending it, for me i put at night and wake up the next day with amazing result.

I have been using this product for a few years. My whole family used to use very expensive spot treatments but then we switched to this, and not only is it way cheaper, it actually works better! Just put a small amount on your problem areas before going to bed, and wake up with a noticeable difference!

This product is a lifesaver! It reduced my acne pretty much overnight and it is not harsh. It might all of the expectations I had and wasn’t pricey at all! I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I use this product with the Neutrogena All-in-1 daily scrub and the sod 35 moisturizer and I have seen great results! On its own I'm sure it would be drying but followed up by the moisturizer it is fine. My blackheads are disappearing and my acne breakouts are significantly slowing down. So happy with my results!

Definitely a fan of this. I've been using Neutrogena products for years and this stuff is amazing. It brings down the appearance of a blemish over night. Be careful though, it can leave your skin dry if you don't moisturize. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who has small break outs.

I've used this product over the course of many years. If you apply a large amount one or two times a day, it really helps shorten the life of any blemishes. However, using it in one area for more than a few days usually ends up drying that area out. Also, this product WILL ruin fabrics that it comes in contact with - I learned that the hard way! I usually use this product before bed, so I make sure I use an old pillowcase, or a pillowcase that does not have any color to it.

Awesome product. I usually see a decrease on the acne spot I use it on overnight. Wish it would work faster on me...but it's still my go to product for fast acting acne removal

I swear by this it's a must have ! I've been using this on and off for months now when I have a sudden breakout and it's perfect. For me I can't use it everyday or else your skin will get used to it and just fight it. It's easy to apply and doesn't smell weird and for the price it's great !

This product works amazing in a pinch. Got a wedding to go to and all of a sudden you have a giant zit forming? Put a little dab on it the night before and when you wake up- boom. Almost all gone. The only complaint I can think of is it is fairly drying on the skin that it is applied to. Great to get rid of a pimple. Not so great for surrounding skin. However you don't need much for it to work it's magic.

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.
