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

How To Use :

This is a good product and it does work. It has great packaging and is nice to travel with. Amazing price point and easy to get ahold of. It does help with breakouts but does not work as quickly as some others I have tried. I will still purchase this though!

This product works really well if you know the benzoyl peroxide works for your skin. It dries up the acne you have. You want to make sure you use a heavy moisturizer with this because it is very drying.

When I have bad acne I use this, and while it doesnt do as well as drying it out with rubbing alcohol, its better for my skin. My acne is visibly less red and smaller the next day. I recommend this to my friends when they want something good for their skin!

No complaints! If you put a dot on your spots at night they do look much better in the morning (and it prevents them from turning into big zits). Never irritates my skin either, and I have super sensitive skin. Of course, you can't beat the price either. Recommend!

I like this product for those stubborn pimples that appear out of nowhere. It really does the job. I find that it reduces redness. It’s met my expectations so far. I would recommend to others and will be buying again.

I wouldn’t recommend this if you had severe acne and dry skin because it can be very trying for your face. I quit using this just because it wasn’t necessary for my face especially with my dry skin but it is effective

Usually all acne treatment creams/gels work for me. My granny bought me this one and it works just as good as the rest of them that I’ve tried. I wouldn’t buy it again since I can get an off brand for a cheaper price

I felt like it's kinda pricey for a tiny tube. It doesn't seem to work well with my skin. I don't really see a difference after using at least 2 tubes of this. Products work differently on everyone so maybe it's just me.

This product is really nice. Iv been using it for about 2 weeks now on my problem areas and they have went down so much! But something that is weird is that it makes my skin oily which is very weird but I still like this 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?

Does this actually work? Is it worth the cheaper price?

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.
