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 :

  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.

  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

I tried this product but didn't care for it which was surprising because I love neutrogena products. It didn't help with my acne and it left a residue that crumbled. I switched to a generic kroger brand and couldn't be happier with the results

If you got a zit, use this stuff! Be careful applying as it is very drying, but it gets the job done. I love these products, they’re very gentle on the skin. I always keep this in my makeup bag just incase!

If you stick with this product you will be amazed at the results! After about a week of using it all of my acne bumps had faded. However I recommend a lotion after using this for a prolonged time because it can dry out your skin.

I have pretty clear skin but tend to get monthly breakouts during my period. I apply this product to any breakouts and it does the trick, helping get rid of zits quickly and effectively without overdrying.

I did not experience any results after using this product. I read great things about it but I will be looking for other options. I like that it is convenient to pick up at the drugstore or target.

This spot treatment has been a life saver! It goes a long way, and I feel like despite the small container, it is worth the price! One bottle lasts a long time, as it is meant for bad flare up spots.

Ugh, I don’t know if any acne-fighting products do anything to solve my problems. However, I went back to using this and I feel like it helps a little. Non-irritating or drying, so that’s a plus!

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.
