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 :

Pretty good product. Much better for my sensitive skin. The other products are usually too harsh for me to use. I was looking for something that will still do its job but doesn’t burn my skin. This works well!

My zits tend to stay in the same spots over and over so this was an OK. It helped them heal faster and didn't cause irritation. But it didn't keep them at bay or clear up completely

Love this acne lotion. I put it on a breakout over night and everything rises to the surface by the morning. It does sting a little but I feel like that's how you know it's working!

This is a great and cheap little go to! Around *ahem* that time of month, i like to apply a thin layer overnight to my acne prone areas to keep the pimples away. Works like a charm!

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 acne medicine works great, on the spot or for break outs or blemishes. A little product goes a long way, it can dry out skin, make sure moisturize. Product is worth the price

I used this because a dermatologist recommended it. I would say that it works pretty well and doesn't dry out your skin but I did not see amazing results. You have to use it regularly to notice a difference.

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.

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?

Does this actually work? Is it worth the cheaper price?

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.
