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

Este es un tratamiento increíble, pero tiene una historia. Tuve un pequeño problema con el acné que quería tratar antes de que se estropeaba. Por lo tanto, yo había comprado recientemente el lavado de acné tienen una naranja, después de haber comprado que pensé que tenía que patear a un nivel superior, por lo que había boughten esto. Lo que esto hace es secar el grano por lo que es más pequeño y más fácil de "pop". Puede ejecutar este en más de la espinilla o un punto por encima de ellos. Por lo que salpican me refiero a dejar una pequeña cantidad en la parte superior de la espinilla, no frote. Para los granos más grandes que yo dot. Recomiendo este producto extremadamente si lo que buscas es una buena crema de la etapa de su acné-juego.

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.
