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 :

  • 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.

This product really is a life saver when I have 1 or 2 surprise pimples and I need a quick fix. It's a little drying for me when i use it but it never lasts more than a day and it really helps with my acne .

This product didn’t seem to help much with my acne but did successfully dry out ever part of my face it came in contact with. I needed to moisturize heavily while using this “treatment”.

This is a go to solution for a cluster of pimples that just arrived. Not sure it has immediate results and overuse can dry out your skin, but I always turn to it during a breakout

By far my favorite product by them! I even got my mom to start using this stuff, because it works just like magic! Not expensive, and doesn’t leave my skin dried out or oily which is nice! Works fast too!

This truly is a great product. It does what it says it does. There's not really much more I can say about it except that it really reduces pimples, almost immediately after use.

It's the perfect dupe for the Mario badescu drying lotion. Except this one is much easier to wipe off and doesn't burn as much as its counter. The smell isn't as strong either.

This is my go to acne medication/remedy. I bought it from my local Target. Although it may dry out the skin a bit, it does a wonderful job of reducing acne. I definitely recommend this product to others.

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.
