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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Love this stuff! It takes care of the acne almost overnight. I have dry skin, so it does make it peel around it a bit, but I’d rather deal with that, than acne. Not that expensive and definitely worth a try.

I love this product for overnight relief for inflammation on a large pimple. I do not use this product all the time, only sporadically as needed on blemishes. It is so great to keep on hand, and I recommend everyone keeps him in their drawer.

My favorite spot treatment! I use this whenever I feel a problem area coming. Very effective at drying out and diminishing the spot. Super effective for the price, not at all expensive! Definitely recommend.

Does this work ? Does it remove the pimple overnight or by the next day ? Does it irritate the skin ?
