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 usually only use this product when I'm having a breakout during my period but I use it whenever I feel a pimple coming. I put it on at night and it's usually gone by the morning.

Easy to apply. Don’t like the smell but other than that it works fantastic. I usually always have a stick in my purse and one at home. Not to bad of a price. Will continue to purchase.

One of the quickest products to help get rid of break outs and under the skin blemishes. You can use it all over to avoid break outs or as spot treatment. Very affordable as well.

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 PRODUCT SAVES MY LIFE ON THE DAILY. Any acne pop up that I have can be gone in a jif!! It's rather strong, but it's great if you have oily skin. I've used this since in came out and highly recommend it!

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!

My son uses this on a regular basis and it helps clear up his skin pretty quickly. This is a product we will continue to purchase for him. He likes how it doesn’t overly dry his skin. Gentle but effective.

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.
