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.

Great spot treatment. Inexpensive and easy to use. Easy one step product. Fits in your makeup bag. Not pricy and works wonders on those little spots.

This product dries out my pimples and helps me fight the urge to pop them which will ultimately lessen my acne scars and the spread of acne bacteria.

Clean&Clear makes a similar product that costs about the same but has twice the salicylic acid active ingredient in it. This works, but not as fast.

I have very problematic skin and this helps so much! It's so general on the skin, and doesn't leave it irritated like other acne creams I have used.

This acne treatment has definitely been a lifesaver for me since I have began to use it. It is crazy the difference by just using this once or twice.

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.
