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.

Not the best product for your money but it does the job. It isn't going to clear up your bump overnight, so just don't expect that and the product should meet your expectations.

This was harsh on my skin...:( it didn’t do anything to my acne. It was my first time using it and didn’t help whatsoever. I was disappointed because I kind of have high hopes for it.

Love this stuff! It’s like magic in a bottle! I use this all the time for my blemishes, and it’s great value for the price. The bottle is a good size for traveling, but also for home. Would definitely recommend.

Put this on before bed and your spot will be gone the next morning. I haven’t tried if it works throughout a day because I cake on a lot of makeup but it definitely works on its own

This product is great when you see a break out at the end of the day because once everything is off and your face is clean you can pop this on the problem a tea and it's gone by the next morning.!! Love this!!

It didn't really work on my skin. It left it feeling dried out and I actually have combination skin. I was hoping that it would help with pimples that just popped up and it didn't.

I used to love this for spot treating acne. The blemish would go away within the next day or the day after. But they changed the packaging and formula. Now it doesn’t work at all.

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.
