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 acne cream is amazing! It works great for spots that you want to get rid of fast in about 1-2 hours after I apply you can tell it’s working as it’s not as red as before and not swollen. Would recommend for everyone it’s perfect for last minute acne pop ups right before date nights, events or photo shoots

This is a good product to use to help with heeling major breakouts in just one day. It is really effective and does not cause a whole lot of drying out or redness unless you over use the product, or if you have a allergic reaction to it, which at that point i would not use this product.

This is great for that random giant zit that comes up out of nowhere! I just put a little on and it is gone the next day. Don’t put on too much or it dries the area.

I have been using this product for quite a few years. It is perfect for spot treatment. I have generally sensitive skin, but have never had issues with this product. It dries out the blemish and reduces swelling and redness virtually overnight. I would definitely recommend this spot treatment if you are in a pinch.

We have a tube in every bathroom of our house! Quick working and good amount for your money. Not too harsh on my sensitive skin. Both my boyfriend and I love it!

Benzol peroxide formula is great for clearing up my acne. But it’s also not too drying for daily use. A great not overly smelly product that I’ve really enjoyed.

It was effective for me in the beginning and helps a lot in preventing a breakout to happen. Only problem was when I coordinated it in my skin care routine and it wasn't as effective before and the acne would still be there. Also makes my skin peel on the area where it is applied.

Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment is great for getting rid of those stubborn spots. Pop it over your skin, and over night you’ll find the swelling goes down. This product doesn’t sting or cause any problems with my skin. I would definitely recommend this product. Great value.

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.
