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.

Muy bueno. Nada mejor que cuidar nuestro rostro. Crear una rutina antes de dormir con productos como este valen la pena.

This helps dry down a pimple. Will not make it disappear but helps dry it and speed up the process of getting rid of it.

This does a good job of getting rid of acne but not the best one I have ever used in my entire life before. But it;s good

I do not have heavy breakouts, usually just pop-ups here & there. This treatment did not work at all for me. Waste of $$

Amo esta crema..
Diria que es milagrosa, cuando tengo alguna espinilla solo la coloco y en pocas horas ves el resultado.

If I use this like before I go to bead on some pimples or small break out areas paired with tea tree oil it does wonders

Goes with me everywhere. A good temporary anti-inflammatory until you can get home and really take care of that breakout!

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.
