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 :

  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.

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

This works really well for me! It definitely helps to reduce my acne. Particularly when I safely extract any grossness then applying this helps clear it up by the next day!

This worked its best at the very beginning when I started to use it. The more I used it, the less it worked. Really just made scabs, didn't reduce bump, redness, or pain.

I have light acne and this spot treatment worked pretty well for me after 2 uses.... For people who have moderate/severe acne- I wouldn't recommend. It's not that strong.

Worked very nicely! I usually applyed it before I went to bed. It does work nicely with the benzoyl peroxide to shrink the pimple down and stopped new ones from coming.

This product definitely dries up zits on the spot! I find that it definitely dries your skin up around the blemish a little too much, but it definitely does the trick.

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.
