Product 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 :

I really like this on the spot acne treatment! This is the best acne treatment I have used so far for a quick fix. If I get an unexpected pimple, I apply this at night and it really helps! It reduces redness, dries out the area to get rid of extra oil, and shrinks the zit overnight! It's incredible. I love that I can use it on a concentrated area and that it makes a difference SO IMMEDIATELY. This is a great price and even though it is small, it lasts FOREVER, since you only use it in a small area.

Loved this! It helped clear up my acne and worked better than some prescription ointments I had tried. It's a spot cream that you apply to the inflames area & you will notice a huge difference with your acne within a day!

I love this product. I put this on areas I am more likely to break out in the morning and at night, a long with a oil free salicylic acid moisturizer. I can say I really never break out unless I do forget to put those on!

It really seemed to target the acne spots that I needed to get rid of but I did dry out my skin a lot. But then I used moisturizer that helped with that. So if this doesn’t bother you then this will be perfect for you!

My favorite pimple remover! Works amazing, definitely don’t let it sit around in your cabinets because the magic will disappear! Dries out your pimples, but I did receive some acne scars.

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.
