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

I use this when i get one or more break outs. As long as i apply this about three to four times a day it usually takes care all of my acne in about two days.

This stuff works awesome. It’s not so harsh that it’s taking your skin off, but it does help with stubborn zits, clogged pores, and all sorts of other stuff.

It takes some days to work but it is awesome. It did leave my skin a bit dry but I used a hydrating moisturizer on top of it and I didn't have any problems.

This was my go to, it dries up the irritated and already dry or ugly looking acne /scabs. But it does that well, making the skin you put it on flaky and dry.

Use this for traveling. Perfect for that random pimple that appears and needs to be gone fast. This is the holy grail for that and way cheaper that proactive

I feel like this product may or may not have helped... but I did notice that it wouldn’t take long for the pimple to decrease in size after using this cream.

This product works pretty good. Made the pimple smaller and less visible. I'm able to find this at Walmart and not too expensive. Will definitely buy again.

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.
