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

This item is a staple in my skin care drawer. It is effective in fighting acne quickly. It dries up problem areas without over-drying. The packaging is also small enough so that it's easy and convenient to travel with.

This is one of the few products that actually help control my acne. I use this when I have a couple causal pimples, I just rub it on and leave it over night. It’s much better the next day. Lighter.

Apply this at night and your acne will go away. The next morning though make sure you clean your face or it will look like you have dried toothpaste on your face.

If you have sensitive but acne prone skin, this is the best spot treatment. It’s really gentle but also seriously works wonders on acne. I put it on at night and my breakouts are significantly reduced in the morning

Does its job of drying up the effected area but made by whole face dry up. Took me two weeks to get my face back to normal. I also have very sensitive skin though. Would recommend it with caution. Small packaging.

I love this product!!! It helps me take care of problem zits. It seems to quickly take care of the zit while not drying out all the skin around it which is amazing. It is very inexpensive and found almost anywhere.

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.
