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.
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

This helped to clear some of my acne so well, it reduced the redness and the puffiness of the spot and made it look more appealing and less gross and pussy. Gross I know but it's true and it's a struggle. Defo recommend

This product is really good for just when a pimple is about to become “ripe”. I’ve tried applying this when the pimple is already visible with pus and it didn’t seem to do anything. It’s really drying so if you have dry skin I wouldn’t reccomend using this product. It did help some spots become less visibly but didn’t really get rid of them for good.

I enjoy the creamy consistency of this treatment because it is very effective when it comes to spot treatment! Also like how it sort of dries out and does minimise acne sometimes.

I stopped buying my prescription acne face wash because this works even better! I wash my face like normal then apply a small amount of this treatment on my acne-prone areas of my face. It stops pimples from progressing and reduces pimples that are already there without ever drying out my skin. Glad I gave it a try!

the absolute best on the go product for stubborn acne that won't go away.. Love the texture and how light it feels, almost as if it wasn't there. I use it for underneath my makeup as a layer of protection just on my dotty acne, I use primer elsewhere. Love this. Little bit pricey for such a small product.

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.

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.
