      Meh, not for me

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Boo Boo Zap! Medicated Acne Treatment:

      I bought this bc I needed to add something to my cart for a Beauty Break, and I like Benefit makeup a lot so I thought I'd give it a shot.

      I dunno if my skin/pimples are just "tough" or what but this doesn't really work for me. I do notice a reduction in size and swelling/redness but TBH I get the same or better effects with drug store salicylic treatments (2% instead of this product's 0.5%) and Jack Black Bump Fix. For the price it's very little product, and hard to apply.

      The packaging is super cute - but not enough to make up for the product it holds. Just didn't really do it for me, I won't buy again.

        I really like the product but the applicator is really odd and there are no instructions. I assume it goes on your finger to be applied on your breakout but the product is very watery and it's difficult to coat the breakout without wasting a lot.

          I was a little disappointed by this product, considering that I love benefit. I wasn't a fan of the applicator, and so far I have been using this product twice a day for about two weeks and haven't seen much of a difference in my skin; I'm hoping to see some improvement soon.

          Must use at night & in morning!

          By Katie

          from San Angelo

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Boo Boo Zap! Medicated Acne Treatment:

          This product had been out of stock every time I went to Ulta and was always sold out online, so when I found one box left on the shelf during one of my Ulta trips, I decided to give it a shot. It didn't do much at first, but then I read that you have to apply it at night and in the morning to see results. Once I started doing that, I began to see some awesome results! While it doesn't get rid of breakouts or problem spots over night, it does help heal them faster and prevents them from being as ugly as they probably would have gotten. Once I apply this to a problem spot, it usually goes away in approximately two days and if I apply it before I go to sleep there is usually almost none inflammation or irritation left from a break out or problem area. Just be sure to use it in the morning and in the evening!

          I really like this product. It's easy to use, but you should use Qtips to not contaminate the product. I haven't had much luck with atop treatments, but I noticed a difference with this one in about a week. Love it!

              Hi gorgeous!

              You can apply boo boo zap! alone or before your moisturizer! This fast-acting invisible acne treatment is gentle enough to be used multiple times a day, but powerful enough to prevent new blemishes from forming.

            I have a dry skin except around my nose and using a product like proactive absolutely ruins my skin. Is this as harsh and will it hurt my skin? Also how often should you use this product?

            • Staff Expert

              A:

              The active ingredient in this product is Salicylic Acid 0.05%, which is a beta hydroxy acid that serves as an exfoliating and anti-inflammatory agent to unclog pores and clear the skin. This formula is not harsh and is formulated for all skin types! We recommend applying the product only to affected areas. You can apply daily or as frequently as needed.

            could I apply the product in the morning and also at night before I go to bed? Is it okay if i put the product on but also go outside in the sun?

            • Staff Expert

              A:

              Yes, this product can be applied nightly, in the morning, and reapplied throughout the day as needed. This product contains active ingredient Salicylic Acid 0.05%, and one of this ingredient's actions is to exfoliate away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, so make sure to protect renewed skin from UV damage by applying SPF prior to sun exposure.
