Clean & Clear

Persa-Gel

Item #: 5022309 Size: 1.0 oz

This water-based formula is recommended by dermatologists for its ability to penetrate the pore with 10% micronized benzoyl peroxide and stop breakouts before they become visible.
If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication to dry, then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a doctor. Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Precautions: When using any product containing benzoyl peroxide avoid any unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. For external use only. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. Do not use this medication if you have very sensitive skin or if you are sensitive to benzoyl peroxide. This product may cause irritation, characterized by redness, burning, itching, peeling or possibly swelling. Mild irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently or in a lower concentration. If irritation becomes severe, discontinue use; if irritation still continues, consult a doctor. Keep away from eyes, lips, and mouth. This product may bleach hair or dyed fabrics. Keep tightly closed. Avoid storing at extreme temperatures (below 40 F and above 100 F).
Active Ingredient: 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. Other Ingredients: Water, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Laureth-4, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Disodium EDTA.

Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel:

I have never in my life left a review for a product so this is how you know that I feel very strongly about this! I struggle with moderate acne still in my early 20s, which is frustrating and embarrassing. On a whim, I picked this up at my local ulta store. I washed my face as normal and put a thin layer on my entire face before bed. The next morning, the acne around my trouble areas (chin, mouth) was minimized and my skin looked kind of disgusting and there were little bumps everywhere, especially on my forehead where I rarely have breakouts. I was horrified but thought that maybe the medicine was just pulling everything out of my skin. I repeated the routine the next night and woke up with similar results, however this time the sensitive skin around my mouth was irritated. Try to avoid putting it around your mouth! I put aquaphor on my skin to soothe irritation and that issue was solved within a day or two. Within 3-4 days of using this product SPARINGLY, the little bumps on my forehead and the acne bumps were gone and my skin looked healthy and glowing. This is probably the best over the counter acne product I have ever tried. I'm actually mad at myself that it took me this long to find and try it! Even though my skin gets a little bit dried out, I've been applying the product after washing my face and then using just a drop of coconut oil to moisturize before bed to ensure that my skin doesn't get irritated. The results are honestly astounding. Instead of waking up in the morning and counting how many new pimples I have, when I look in the mirror I get to see how clear and soft my skin is!

    Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel:

    I have never purchased a clean and clear product before this one. Also I never take time to write reviews but I feel this one deserves it. For the past few weeks I have been getting little enflamed red pimples just on my cheeks. I do not have bad acne nor have I ever but I am 34 weeks pregnant so I think that is to blame. I do use a clarisonic so my skin is fairly clear but I bought this to try and it literally dried up the pimple in 2 days because I've really been trying not to pick my face! I was so shocked! I have now just been putting a pea size on each cheek after I use my clarisonic at night and morning and I'm clear and hope to stay that way :)!

      Saved my face!

      By Celena

      from Louisiana

      Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel:

      I rarely write reviews but I had to with this product. It truly saved my face! I'm 30 and never had acne as a teen but something happened and my face just exploded with awful, cystic acne all over my jawline and chin. Nothing I used help and my face was painful to touch and I felt awful about my skin. I tried this as a last resort before an appointment for accurate. It's super drying but that's to be expected but within a week all of my cystic acne was gone, my red scarring was gone and I felt confident enough to go without make up some days. If you're struggling with acne I recommend this 100%.

            I don't break out that often but recently I have been having painful red bumps on my chin and forehead that don't cone to a head. Usually these take a LONG time to go away but this REALLY helps. I recommend cleaning your face first with a gentle cleansed, making sure that all makeup is off first and then apply it to spots as needed then let the skin breathe. It reduces the size quickly and redness with minimal skin dryness.

            This is a very easy to use product. I wash my face thoroughly, then put a pea-size amount on my index and dab it on the affected area. I usually use it over night, my morning the area has significantly minimized its appearance.

            My acne is worse with hormones and humidity. Summer in the Deep South...zit city. I'm coating my entire face with this stuff morning and night. When autumn arrives, I'll be able to drop back to once a day, or spot treat. Good stuff. If you have oil and/or pimples, try it.
