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

    Wasn't sure if this would be like the cream your buy in the store which never seems to do much for me so I ordered it. It was a little different and the liquid comes out fast at times so I had to get use to it. Didn't take long. After the first day I used it twice. went to bed and most of my face was clear by morning!
    As a spot treatment, this is better than anything I have ever brought. I'm hooked!

          No wonder this product was out of stock online!! This is the best spot acne treatment I have ever used. It works so fast, and really REALLY works. I use it in the morning and at night in addition to benefit moisturizer of choice so my skin doesn't overdry. I am careful using it as the liquid comes out a little fast. I am going back to store to buy more so I have back ups incase in sells out again.

              I used this product twice daily for two weeks and saw no visible improvements. In fact, the only change I did notice is that occasionally, my chin would be very dry and flaky, but no changes to my acne. I'm very disappointed, especially since the Ulta associate that recommended this product to me was raving about it so much.

                Both my husband and I have been using Boo Boo Zap for years. I hadn't seen it in a long tiime and were concerned that Benefit had discontinued it. I was delightd to find that it was still available, but had merely been repackaged! Put this stuff on your zit as soon as you see it, and POOF, it disappears overnight! It's a miracle!

                  I love this zit zapper. I rarely ever get a zit, I got one on my chest right above where all my shirts start, it was not big but I felt like everyone could see it. The same day I went to Ulta and bought this product, I put it on when I got home, then right before I went to sleep. The next day I put it on when I woke up and then before I went to bed, the next day the zit was pretty much gone and the following day it was completely gone!(so 3 days!)I think it is well worth the money. I have not had a zapper work this well before!

                      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?

                      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.

                      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.
