      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Boo Boo Zap!:

      I originally got this as a gift so I decided to try it and seriously it works miracles! I have dry/combination (oily in t-zone) skin and it gets rid of pimples so fast! If I never got this as a gift I probably would've never bought it bc it's in a liquid form and I've never used something like that before but I'm sooooooo glad I tried it now. Hands down the best pimple fighting formula I've ever used! Spend that extra $5-$10 more on this product bc it's going to work way better than that bargain product you normally buy that takes 3-5 days to get rid of zits.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Boo Boo Zap!:

        I love how this product looks, I use all the Benefit skin care, and I love it all, so of course when I got a huge pimple on my nose I bought this.
        I'd say it works the same as if from a different brand, but I like that this is liquid and dries quickly compared to the gel from other brands.
        I picked at the zit when it finally came out and made it bleed and continued to use this product and a week later there is no pimple and no scarring.

          I can't say this doesn't work but I will say it works the same as the less expensive and not as pretty looking drug store versions. The packaging looks very pretty with all my skincare stuff but that isn't why I bought it. I feel like it's an average blemish zapper put into beautiful packaging. I wouldn't buy this again. I do love benefit products but this one just struck out for me.

            Okay so this product is not miracle worker. It does not just "zap" away your pimples in hours or even over one night. BUT this stuff does a great job (the best I have found so far) of decreasing appearance and ultimately ridding the pimple over a course of several days. I wash my face- I wash it again- I get a clean Q-tip and put this stuff on the end- I apply it directly to my pimple. When I wake the redness is gone and sometimes the pimple is much smaller. By day 3 or 4 the pimple is fully gone and my face is clear. This stuff is LESS effective on an already popped pimple!!! Keep that in mind- because it will take longer for your face to not only rid the pimple but to scab over and heal.

            Diificult to apply because it is so thin and watery and the bottle has a large opening. Didn't feel the product healed breakouts any faster than usual, and it dried out my skin. Won't be repurchasing.

                    I usually break out with a couple of really stubborn pimples that never seem to go away. I have been searching for a product like this. Yes, it is a little expensive. But let me tell you I have only applied it twice to my stubborn pimples and by day 2 I have noticed them almost completely gone! Which is a miracle. Apply with a Q-Tip. A little bit goes a long ways! It is a really small vile type bottle. The only worry I have is it not lasting a long time because of how small it is. All-In-All its definitely worth it!!! I can see this product being one of my holy grails.

                      You have to put it on three times a day but it is compact. It barely dries your skin out but that's how it works and it doesn't wash off any makeup. It's not messy at all either u just put it on and go, no washes it off or having to wait.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.
