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 :

  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.

  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

It is an average cream. I didn’t see it working wonders. I’m not sure if ig is my skin type but it made my spots dry after using it. I wish it was more gentle but got the job done.

How well does this work? I used other brand of acne treatment on spot. Plan on using this if it works good.

Sometimes this works really well but sometimes it doesn’t really do anything for my acne. I don’t love the packaging but if it works then it doesn’t matter! It’s a good value and have recommended it to my family.

I do find this product works. However it really dries out my skin and also bleached my pillows at night. I use it sparingly and only when really needed as a result of this. Pimples do reduce in size and redness after one use.

I’ve seen this product work for others, but it isn’t for me. I have very sensitive skin and this product was very harsh on my face. I would wake up with red splotches all over my face. If you don’t have sensitive skin like me I would recommend this product.

This product had helped my skin so much. The packaging is pretty standard it’s not really all that. It definitely good value and not pricy. I’m definitely a repeat user to this product. I recommend this to others.

This is a great product!! As a 15 year old, I struggle with acne and this is one of the very few products that seems to work for my skin. I apply it liberally before bed and by morning redness and inflammation are significantly reduced

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.
