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

Most other products on the market is too harsh on my face and leaves me dry and itchy. This 2.5% benzoyl peroxide is gentle yet effective enough to shrink a breakout. I would recommend this to anyone who have found other benzoyl peroxide products too harsh.

This treats acne by drying it. That’s a weird technique yes and it does dry your face in the process but it does work and it works on making whiteheads smaller and blackheads smaller too. Using this, I couldn’t tone my face or it would’ve been extremely dry.

This works very well. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because the natural version of this product works so much better, but I used this product for years and it works very well too! If you don’t have sensitive skin this one might be best for you over the natural one! Definitely worth looking into

It's a good product for mild acne and or sensitive/mature skin.  Convenient to open packaging and and the right amount comes out from the opening. But don't expect it to help for large cysts.

This cream usually works really well for me. As soon as I feel a zit coming I just dap a little on and it never comes. There’s the occasional stubborn acne it can’t fight.

This is literally my favorite on the spot creams. I live by it. I see tremendous results overnight when I use it. And it doesn’t take much of the cream to work, so I’ve had the same bottle FOREVER. It’s also very cheap for something that works this well!

This works pretty well for me. I have a few big breakouts and after a few hours they are greatly reduced. I have sensitive skin and normally can’t use this type of stuff, but I had no problems with this. It’s also a good price. I will definitely buy again.

This product is very fast acting and within three days it had dried out and faded the acne spot I had on my face. I was very pleased with that whole process. It worked and did exactly what it was supposed to do. I would recommend this product to a friend.

This stuff is gold. It work SO FAST. There's no smell to it, and it literally only takes a little dab to work its magic. I could not recommend this product enough to everyone in the world. My momma recommended it to me, and we all know momma's know best.

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.
