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 :

I don’t know what happened to the formula but this made my skin extremely red in the areas I applied it in and did absolutely nothing for my acne.

Works very well for quick foxes, not a very long term solution though. I put it on right before bed after washing my face and there is a noticeable improvement in the blemish after just one night.

I first purchased this product after a visit to my personal dermatologist. At first, I thought the packaging was kind of boring, but when I began to use it, I quickly noticed that it was helping to diminish my blemishes. I have been using this product for a year and I have rarely broken out since.

This is SO harsh on my skin. I use a TINY TINY amount and when I wake up the next morning, my whole face and eyes will be swollen itchy and red.

Reduces redness and inflammation of pimples within an hour of use!! Doesn’t completely get rid of acne but definitely helps. A little pricey but is sold at pretty much every drug store.

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.

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.
