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 :

It promises to reduce pimples overnight but hay never happened for me. It could be because my acne at that time was too severe but I never noticed any difference, unfortunately.

This stuff works wonders! I don’t have bad acne but when I get start to get some I apply it and the next day it’s gone. It is very effective! I love it and would 100% recommend it if you have normal skin with a few pimples every now and then!

This product has been a life saver for my spontaneous breakouts especially during my period. I apply it almost every night and when I wake up my skin is so much clearer.

Not the best spot treatment. Sometimes it work and other times it’s so watery when it comes out. It doesn’t smell great and I feel as if it dries tacky and does nothing.

I love this stuff , if I have a pimple I rub it on and it reduces the size almost immediately. Usually within a few days the blemish will disappear or be extremely tiny.

This product definitely dries up zits on the spot! I find that it definitely dries your skin up around the blemish a little too much, but it definitely does the trick.

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.
