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 :

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

I've never had any luck with this product. It just seems to dry my skin out without actually doing anything to the blemish. Definitely not worth the money.

I like using this spot treatment, it does help with my acne but it takes a few uses to see your pimple improve/go away. It comes out clear and drys white.

Works pretty good but bleaches clothes.  It takes a few days for it to clear the spot.  I bought it from target and it was a little pricey

Benzoyl peroxide is the only acne fighting ingredient that works for me. Takes longer to work on my more cystic acne. Can flake up if you put too much on.

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.
