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 :

THIS WORKS SO WELL!! I normally try to stay away from drug store acne products, but this one actually works. For a cheaper price than derm prescribed products, you can get something that works just as well. I love it! 130% recommend this to anyone of any skin type.

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.

My daughter used this product for several months and it really did help with new pimples. She would put it on at the first sign and they would be gone before they got very big. I would recommend this to anyone with a teen who gets mild break outs.

I've been using the Neutrogena On-The-Spot treatment for years. I have very clear skin, so I have a breakout, it's very noticeable. I use this gel directly on the zit and it makes it noticeably better over night.

I could see this start to work, I normally put it and leave it on overnight. I bought it at Walmart and it was around $8 wasn't much at all, and I only break out during the time of the month and I would recommend

Love this stuff to treat pimples I feel are coming in. I leave it on overnight and after a few days pimple either disappears or has decreased in size. Awesome spot treatment with no strong smell or weird residue.

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!

I have been struggling with breakouts on my chin for years. Does anyone have a go-to acne treatment that is affordable and won’t dry out your skin?
