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 cured my acne right up when they appear. Helps when I know I have something important coming up that I need a clear face for. Works great but I don't use it all the time only when most needed.

LOVE THIS! Whenever I feel a pimple coming or have broken out a little, I put this on before bed or in the morning & it'll be gone in a day or two! This product works wonders for me and I would definitely buy again!

I don't feel like this worked that well. I've used other products that have worked better. I liked the price and the packaging and that's about it. Wouldn't recommend to anyone and I won't buy again.

This product was very drying for me. I typically love Neutrogena skin care products. Therefore, despite the fact that I will not try this product again, I will continue to use Neutrogena products.

Well, it does reduce the acne size a bit. Does not completely dry the zit out. I still use it because it does not cause any other skin problems like over drying. Overall, a descent product for the price!

I bought this at Target because my aunt recommended it to me. It works, but after a while my skin got used to it and stopped working. It's not the best of the best, I think other acne treatments are better like from Murad.

I bought this for my teenage son to use on his pimples. It works to clear pimples up in about 4 days. It does not however, help reduces the discoloration left behind by the blemish it clears up.

Not as quick as some other acne treatments I've applied; it takes a few days for this to get rid of a blemish. With that being said it almost never leaves me with a flaky patch of skin after use.

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.
