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.
  • 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.

I use this ALL. THE. TIME. I’m surprised I don’t take it with me everywhere because this works like a charm. It’s small, portable, simply packaged, and works so quickly. I would 100% buy this again.

While this product helps with some of the pressure and pain from a pimple, I didn’t notice it reducing in size or going away any quicker. It’s okay, but I’ve used better products from this company.

Great spot treatment! Worked to make pimples nonexistent by morning if I would put it on at night before sleep. Great for those random breakouts that come out a few days before an important event.

This product is my holy grail when I’m breaking out. I use it whenever I’m breaking out. It helps so much with getting rid of acne. I don’t break out very often but when i do i use it. I always have to have a bottle at my house.

This product burned my skin!!!!! I’d leave it on over night and wake up with red skin. It’s disappointing and doesn’t even help acne. Horrible experience. Would not recommend this product.

This on the spot treatment is a great over the counter treatment for facial acne. It is not as strong as those prescription spot treatment but works well if too leave it on overnight. Neutrogena is a great product.

THISSSSSSS!!!! Guys seriously this product Neutrogena® On-the-Spot® Acne Treatment saves lives, I honestly now apply almost every night in my trouble areas and I’ll add a dot in the am to the specific spots. Really good, can be a little over drying but my overnight SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Face Oil helps with that :)

my go to product for when a pimple comes up! it does a great job at quickly getting the redness to go away and then the whole pimple.  While I find it hard to just let my pimple be, putting this product on and letting it do its thing lets me see quick results from it.  I have been using it for years and still come back to it as a staple in my skincare drawer.

I really like this acne treatment! It helps shrink down pimples and even cystic acne! I like to use this as a spot treatment, but it can also be used as a mask. I like to leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning!

This was a pretty good acne treatment. I purchased it once but haven’t gone back to it. It’s a good price for how it works. It’s a good product overall and if you want to get rid of acne spot I would recommend purchasing it.

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?

Does this actually work? Is it worth the cheaper price?

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.
