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

Promises smaller sized pimples within 2 hours. Did not see this. Also left a white, crusty, mess behind no matter how much I rubbed in.

Didn’t sting or burn, no intense scent

This product works well getting rid of my pimples. The packaging is very simple. It is a little pricey but I think the product fits the price. I am still on my first bottle (?) , but I would buy again.

This product so amazing! It works so fast and I see results immediately. This product is so cheap and affordable and you can get it at any drugstore near you. This product works hard to erase redness and clear away the pimples.

I put this on any acne after I wash my face at night abs use it as a spot treatment. It’s thick enough to dry and stay out while you’re sleeping. I honestly believe it helps clear up my breakouts. The active ingredient is proven to work and it does! This is the best I’ve tried.

I dont know why but this product didnt do anything for my acne spots, despite using benzyl peroxide which is such a harsh acne fighter many products meant to be used all over the face, wont use it. It just dried out my skin and the spot cleared at its normal speed. i wouldnt buy it.

Affordable and easy to find! It works well overnight on those sudden pop up pimples, but doesn’t seem to prevent anything else from coming up.

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.
