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

This product works great..it usually takes a few days before my problem area is cleared up but it's most effective. It does leave the application area a bit sticky

I have about three weeks using this product. As soon as I have a pimple coming through I put some on. It definitely tries out. After a while, my skin does seem to get dry. Unfortunately, it still leaves the scar and mark. The dark spots are still evident even after multiply usage.

I wouldn't recommend this product. It doesn't help my acne and it feels slightly clogging to my pores. It has not changed my skin what so ever and is very disappointing. It doesn't work as a spot treatment or a general acne spread which is upsetting for the price.

MIRACLE WORKER! This product works overnight to help reduce acne and is a key role in my skin care routine. The size is smaller than I’d like and i wish it was available in a pump container but i will still continue to buy this!

It was the last product I used to cure acne but the reality is that I do not usually use them because it irritates my skin more and acne is never cured quickly with this type of products. I prefer to continue with my routine of normal cleaning and apply a little oil with vitamin C like Tarte and usually acne is cured in that way.

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.
