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 :

I feel like it works in drying out the acne and not my skin, but it really burns and tingles when first applying it. I've just started using this with two other creams from my derm. and I can tell my acne is clearing up

I use this for single-spot breakouts. I usually dab in on at night after I've washed my face and then go to bed, and when I wake up in the morning the blemish is no longer red and the acne bump is gone.

Not a huge fan, I have used better. It took far too long to see results... I had two similar blemishes so I treated one and not the other to see what happened, they both cleared up very close in time.
It's amazingggg!! This is the best acne treatment I have used so far. Every company that makes a Benzoyl Peroxide treatment seems to feel the need to sell it in a 10% concentration. This does not make it more effective at fighting acne but does make it more effective at drying out your skin. BP creams are very drying over time but that is just an unfortunate side effect of the treatment. A 2.5% concentration works just fine for acne treatment.

My personal opinion, this is one of the best acne creams out there. Works great for me, no complaints other than fading on material if you get it on something. But the product does its job and works great!

This gel is amazing. It works overnight and instantly clears any breakouts I have! Would recommend to anyone looking for something to clear those pesky pimples.

I find this product doesn't work that well for me. I feel like the pimple will go away on its own in the same amount of time it takes when using this product.

Attacks any pimples I have overnight and decreases the irritated skin and swelling. Perfect solution if you have a big event the next day and need a quick fix

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.
