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.

This treatment reduces inflammation and redness of acne a day or two after use. It will create some dryness which is the only downside

I have been using this recently. I'm not completely impressed with it. It seems my pimples get worse with it before they get better and it's not a fast process. I guess I was expecting it to work alot faster than it does.

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.

This is my favorite spot treatment for acne. I don’t have breakouts often, but when I do this helps a lot. If I use it the recommended 3 times a day it clears up a pimple within 2 days or so, but my skin around the pimple will be very dry and flaky. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who has dry skin.
this product is great, not only for spot treatment, but it’s great for preventing spots where you might break out or problem areas. will buy again!!

This stuff was ok. I would not use it again. I got it at Walmart and I don’t usually like buying stuff like this at Walmart but I used it for a trip when I didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I guess it worked. Cleared up the blemishes that I needed it to

This cream dries up the skin quickly wherever it is applied. It takes care of smaller acne, but larger acne need to be handled with other methods.

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.
