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

So this product definitely dries out my pimples however it does take a while for the pimple to physically go away; again this product and decrease the redness but the size is not decreased for another couple days or so!

This stuff was ok. I would not use it again. I got it at Walmart and I don’t usually like buying stuff like this at Walmart but I used it for a trip when I didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I guess it worked. Cleared up the blemishes that I needed it to

This product works well getting rid of my pimples. The packaging is very simple. It is a little pricey but I think the product fits the price. I am still on my first bottle (?) , but I would buy again.

This really helps with minimizing incoming pimples. I usually use it at night or immediately when I notice any kind of acne popping up on my face.

I really enjoy this product. I have acne spots pretty often and this product treats my breakouts super quick

My skin is VERY sensitive. So I was very excited to see that this product doesn’t dry out my skin or irritate it, while getting rid of acne almost overnight. If it isn’t gone by the morning, it’s barely noticeable. A great product!

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.
