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 :

  • Clean the skin thoroughly before applying this product.
  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Another spot treatment I have tried and I have tried many...I believe this one was very effective and worked. However it would leave a white residue on my face.

Works great. I use this when I have those aggravating zits that just won't go away. I Applied it at night and by morning the zit was almost gone. Great product!

It’s a good value but it took some time for me to see the effects. It’s still a good cream to use overnight for the price - just don’t expect immediate results.

This didn’t really help much with my acne. Maybe my skin just doesn’t respond to benzoyl peroxide well, but I’ve never seen much of a difference while using it.

Use this daily to keep acne at bay. Does a good job at drying up existing acne and keeping new acne from forming I have oily, acne-prone skin with larger pores.

This is the only acne treatment that I have had success with. With one use, I notice a drastic change in my acne. I could not recommend this product more.

I really like this product for when I get a random pimple. I get cystic acne more so than a regular pimple, but when I do get one, this clears it up right away.

Have been using this for years and it seems to be the only thing that will work for me! Very easy to find and also very cheap compared to other acne treatments!

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.
