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.

Worked when I was in highschool. Made my pimples go away the next day but when I got older it didn’t do anything for my skin. It made my pimple darker and made my skin dry. It was too harsh. My skin got real sensitive

I've been using this product for a few months now and I can't say it consistently helps my acne. I don't break out too often, but when I put some of this spot treatment on whenever I do and the results are 50/50.

Works well for cystic acne! Affordable! One must be careful because it can be too over drying depending on how much is used and how long it sits without rubbing it in. Gets the job done and can be found anywhere!

I keep this small bottle on my nightstand for quick use. If I notice any acne that has popped up during the day then I put this on it before bed and wash it off in the morning. About 90% of the time it helps.

I don't feel as though this product really did the job I needed it to. I put it on after my other face products and in the morning my acne was actually worse/ if you have sensitive skin do not buy this product

This a great product for those irritating pimples or zits that appear over night. It was gentle on my face and I have sensitive skin. I bought mine at Walmart. The packaging was great and caught my eye. I recommend this to those who may get zits over night and want them to go away quickly

I never noticed huge results with this acne cream. I do love the washes and cleansers but was not overwhelmed with this product. It just was not strong enough for what I needed but it might work well for someone with mild acne.

Love love love this stuff! If I get a break out on my face and I put it on overnight, I can notice a huge difference in my spot the next day. You can buy from Walgreens or Walgreens or any store of that kind.

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.
