Product 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 :

This product is fantastic for that one pimple that just won't go away. I use this everyday as the first product I apply to my face. It helps to reduce the swelling and redness of any acne I may have. I bring this with me everywhere and I definitely recommend this to anyone who needs targeted acne treatment.

I had a random terrible breakout so I applied this spot treatment on my face and over night everything vanished. I highly recommend to everyone! I currently use it daily.

This product works miracles!! I put it on whenever I feel like a pimple is emerging or if a pimple isn’t budging after a day or two of emergence. I leave it on overnight and wake up the next morning and the size of the pimple is literally half of what i started with. It’s super cheap and definitely worth the purchase

This isn’t the best acne treatment but it’s helpful, it helped a lot with my acne but the texture is horrible. Its really harsh. I didn’t met my expectations of this product. I wouldn’t buy it again

2.5% benzoyl peroxide is the BEST acne medicine on the market. Although this is a small tube, covering your face with a small layer of this after washing with a gentle cleanser is guaranteed to clear up all your acne. Definitely use a light moisturizer when using this product, as it can cause dry skin.

I’ve used this stuff for many many years now and I hardly ever buy anything else. It doesn’t necessarily get rid of pimples overnight but they will certainly be gone in a few days. Not overdrying and good for sensitive skin. One tube will last forever.

Whenever I see a pimple coming up I put a little bit of this on top and it really helps bring my pimple down and make the redness go away. It’s a great spot treatment.

I am so I love with this product, if you have a pimple and rub this stuff on, it dries the pimple out within the same day and it’s gone. The packaging is pretty plain.

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.
