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 cream is alright. This mainly reduced the size of my pimples and prevented break outs. But, the effect is minimal. I would recommend it to people that just wants to treat 1-3 pimples overnight. Not as a long term acne treatment.

ste es el mejor tratamiento para el acné que he usado hasta ahora. Cada empresa que hace un tratamiento de peróxido de benzoilo parece sentir la necesidad de venderlo en una concentración del 10%. Esto no lo hace más eficaz en la lucha contra el acné, pero lo hace más eficaz en el secado de la piel. BP cremas son muy secar con el tiempo, pero eso es sólo un efecto secundario desafortunado del tratamiento. Una concentración del 2.5% trabaja apenas muy bien para el tratamiento del acné. La única otra solución del 2,5% que puedo encontrar localmente es la marca Walgreens, que es más barato, pero también es más delgado y en ningún lugar tan rápido como el secado Neutrogena. Normalmente aplico una crema BP justo antes de acostarme después de lavarme la cara y el tiempo de secado es muy importante para mí. Soy una cama abajo del vientre y esperar 20 minutos para que un tratamiento del acné se seque antes de conseguir cómodo es una molestia. La crema de Neutrogena se seca en pocos minutos y permanece en el lugar durante la noche en la parte superior de mi piel grasa wile la crema de Walgreens se rompe antes de que la noche se levanta resultando en el tratamiento de limpieza durante la noche.

I really like this product and this brand presentation because they care about all skin types and our needs, I have oily skin but it is also very sensitive and it tends to redden so this product together with a good moisturizer and Essential oils can help you treat your acne.

My doctor recommended this $300 acne treatment and I said, "no way!" So instead I got this and it cleared up my acne in less than a week! I think it's a pretty affordable cream and it works well.

Acne was and still my biggest fear! I've struggled alot in finding the ideal treatment for my problem untiill i was recommended to try this product and I was like why not? I'll go for it since I would do anything just to solve this ! i even tried those DIY treatments which I don't recommend you to like NEVER use ladies! They just made it worse and irritated it ! I had those small bumps all over my forehead! Anyways This helped me alot in treating this MONSTER in full sense of the word LOL cause I don't think any gperson would like to have such things!. Finally this affordable , gentle tube have helped me alot and made me feel confident going makeup free without having to hide the spots with any makeup! You should try it and I hope i'll work for you just as it did to me

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

My sister uses this as she has really bad acne and it seems to work a treat, she used it ever day twice a day, in the morning and at night, she has very sensitive skin and we find it works nicely on here and doesn’t leave any marks. She’s been using this for about a week and already has made a massive improvement.

Since she has been using this, her confidence levels have boosted massively and she’s able to do more things like going out different places not feeling like everybody is staring at her or judging her because she has acne. She has used a bunch on treatments on her skin and not found one that works as good as this. She uses the neutrogena face wash as well and finds the combination amazing and works wonders!

This is tried and true. When you put it on it has a slightly medicated scent and doesn’t seem like it’s going to do much and the consistency for a cream and not convincing but it does a good job at cleaning up a mess and lessening the swelling on new and stubborn zits. I use this typically when I’m traveling I know I can run into a Walgreens and find this this and I know it will work well enough without having to spend 30$ on something I can’t bring back home with me

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.
