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

This isn't my favorite product, but this product works! I usually prefer to use salicylic acid, but the benzoyl peroxide has really helped me to clear my skin and have just healthier looking skin in general!

This does help reduce the size of the affected area but does not erase it completely. I bought it at Target and it has a really good price. I do use from time to time and I would buy it again! Recommend it!

I like this but don’t love it. I feel like it doesn’t clear breakouts up quickly but with persistent use it will dry them out. For the price, it’s good. I will continue to use it

This acne gel is great because it’s 2.5% not the usual 10% which can be too drying for my skin. It helps a lot to bring your acne to a head and it brings down the actual bumps of your acne. I knocked down a star because it can make some pimples have hyperpigmentation for a long time

Works amazing. Reduces the size of my acne overnight. I always put this on before I go to bed and then n the morning my acne is almost gone. Great to put on after washing your face when about to go to bed.

It was very efficient and fast until I started getting irritation and I had to stop it. Really cheap and easy to apply, I just used it before going to bed and it cleaned my acne

Good for the price. Solid spot treatment that gets rid of pimples with in a week and doesn’t dry out your skin. Been using the product for 2 years and don’t have any complaints.

I used this on a few occasions and it worked pretty good. I love that it did not dry my skin out while doing the acne treatment. It was expensive but it worked and was worth it

I was recommended this by YouTuber Nicol Concillio and I was actually surprised at how much my big zit went down overnight! I always break out a couple of days before that time of the month and I know I can count of this every time. The only con I would say is that it’ll dry you out in that area, at least for me it does, but if I use my heavy moisturizer that usually does the trick.

This spot treatment works pretty well on small spots, but it is not as effective as some other treatments I have found. It also has quite an unusual and unpleasant smell, but that’s alright if it works.

Will this make my face break out if it doesn't work?

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.
