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 :

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.

I did not find this to be very effective. I was hoping for a fast pimple remover. Perhaps I was impatient, but it did not appear to remove pimples (or at least work toward it) within a couple days. Inexpensive, but that is irrelevant if it does not work for you.

Neutrogena has come along way in their skin Line. Their products seem to really work and they’re at a decent price as well. They work for different types of skin texture and the Neutrogena brand more specifically their spot treatments and masks, helped me regain my confidence after suffering with bad acne.

Very good acne treatment. Doesn’t work overnight but still works pretty fast. Would buy again.

I like to use this on pimples that have already formed or that I can spot forming under the skin. It works wonders! I use it as a spot treatment and occasionally will put it in specific areas that I know pimples form easily (like around my nose and on my chin). Sometimes after one night of having it on, the pimple is gone! The only con that I can think of is that if you apply too much it gets a little crusty in the area but that's it!

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’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 is both effective and gentle for my sensitive skin prone to cystic acne. Can definitely tell a difference in the morning when using it overnight.

The results were inconsistent for me. Sometimes it was far too drying and left me with dry patches.

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.
