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 :

My doctor recommended this $300 acne treatment and I said, "no way!" So instead I got this and it cleared up my acne in less than a week! I think it's a pretty affordable cream and it works well.

Life saver for those small little flare ups. I put it on before bed on my
Trouble spots and most are dried out by the
Morning. It’s a little harsh but it does the trick.

Did not see a huge difference overnight, however, did help to reduce and fade pimple in a few days. Then is very small, wish it came in a larger size. Overall, not bad given the price.

I like how it leaves my face after washing it with this product its formula helps the acne to dry many of the grains that had on the forehead are gone thanks to this soap that helps to have less acne than normal apart the bar of soap lasts longer than liquid soap

Left my skin very dry and it didn't really work as well as some of the other things I have tried.
I had to stop using this after a few days as it made my skin really bad around my nose area.

Couldn’t see a drastic change in my skins acne appearance. I feel like sometimes these only work on people with only one or two spots. Not people that have multiple of spots together. Wouldn’t buy again. Would recommend but to someone that doesn’t have acne like mine. I would use a whole box in two days.

I started using this based off a YouTuber I watch recommended it on her videos, I wasn’t 100% sure on it but it has definitely been my go to when I start to feel I’m about to break out! I’ve mentioned it to countless people and they’ve all loved it too. For the price, it for sure gets the job done!

Cute little packaging. It doesn’t smell or feel sticky. Does help with red spots sometimes. Good value but kind of pricey. Wouldn’t recommend it though it just didn’t really help me so yeah. It’s just not what I need but overall it’s not that bad.

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.
