Product 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 my favorite drugstore spot treatments. I put this on and within one to two days my pimple is gone. It dries it up without leaving your skin flakey and irritated It's a must have!

Worked in the beginning for me, but after a few weeks it didn't work as well. Not sure if it was just my skin or not but this particular spot treatment didn't work for me.

I had high hopes for this being it is neutragena. the price is kind of high for such a little tube. I didn't see too much of a difference when I applied it the night before.

I love this spot treatment. It takes care of my trouble spots over night. The only problem is that if you apply it too much, it will leave scarring, so make sure you moisturize your trouble spots too.

This acne treatment worked very well for me especially when i woke up with a large pimple or blemish. When you aren't at home and need something on the go this is a great option because it's fast easy and very effective. I would defidently recommend rhus product.

The product seems to work in a couple days but the smell of the product was absolutely awful. It also seemed to over dry my skin. However it did get rid of the blemish.

It really over-dried my skin and didn't do much for reducing the size or redness of the pimple. I tried using it at night before going to bed and never noticed much of a difference in the morning and have resorted to using different brand spot-treatments instead.

This stuff seriously works. The active ingredient benzoyl peroxide kills any bacteria in blemishes. Put a little on before bed and wake up to noticeably clearer skin.

I love this product! It works great for hirmo e related breakout. I apply it before bed on clean skin and see less irritation and swelling in the morning. I do not find it to be drying.

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.
