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

I don’t get acne often, but when I tried this it took half a week just to get rid of the tiniest of pimples. It also (in my opinion) smells pretty bad. I don’t think I’ll repurchase this product.

I don’t have many issues with acne but I use this every once in awhile. It works well! I don’t think it makes my acne go away overnight but I definitely helps keep it under control.

THIS THING IS A LIFE SAVER!!! Almost immediately reduces the redness and visibility of acne and is so quiet and easy! Perfect for random flare ups and zits. Can’t live without it!

Love spot treatments! This one isn’t super drying but still does the job well. I use it overnight and under my foundation on the stubborn pimples that just don’t want to go away.

I use this gel every time I get a new pimple. After popping the pimple I put this gel on. It burns a little bit but not bad. Just enough to let you know it’s doing it’s job. Within a day the pimple is almost gone.

I picked this up at target, and it dries out the area pretty well, preventing the acne from from growing, but the product itself dries up quickly so you have to scrub off the residue and keep reapplying.

Will this make my face break out if it doesn't work?

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.
