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 is my favorite acne treatment product! I’ve been using it for years and it always helps with even the biggest spots. Also there’s no acid in it like other acne creams and that usually makes my skin break out. This stuff is great!

Product worked for the first couple months I was using it but then my face became used to it and started acting up. You can get it at Walmart, Target and Kroger.

It helped sometimes, when I already had the blemish, and it would help it go down some, but not get rid of it completely. I would recommend it to people who do not have sensitive skin.

Once again, Neutrogena does it. With benzoyl peroxide as the acrive ingredient, it works amazing. I use this nightly on my problem areas, as I have acbe prone skin. Good formula, great price!

This is a great product when you need a quick fix. It does the job of minimizing acne but I couldn’t use it long term. It is harsh and very drying to the skin and bleaches any fabric it might accidentally get on.

This is just ok. I've had the same tube forever, perhaps it's expired and doesn't work anymore? I've found other high end brands that work so much better. My favorite is Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment

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.
