Rated 3.9 out of 5 stars
I'm a licensed esthetician and I love this product for my problamtic skin! It really transformed my skin and helps me clear up and control my acne flare ups. This product works wonders when USED CORRECTLY! This product is very strong and powerful so introducing it into your skin care routine needs to be gradual. A lot of reviews say this overly dried out there skin which will 100% happen if you use too much or too often. I started to notice over drying in my problem areas so I cut back on usage and my skin is back to normal. If you're wanting to try this product start by using once every other day to build a tolerance. After that increase to once a day and for very acneic skin you can work up to usage twice a day. If you see over drying just cut back on usage of the product and the dryness should go away! And always remember skin care is all about trial and error until you find what's best for your skin so don't give up finding those perfect products that work for you!
I found this after seeing La Roche Posay had discontinued their benzoyl peroxide serum unless it's purchased as a kit which I do not need. I loved this product at first but then it became too harsh for my skin. It goes on very nicely, no stickiness and not heavy at all! Blends nicely with all other products I wear. The glass tip applicator is giving luxury even though it's more affordable than LRP's benzoyl peroxide. I use a retinoid gel from Differn and a salicylic acid toner (skin cycling) so the added glycolic acid in this was too much for my face and this product began to irritate and sting. My skin is always more sensitized in the winter around my nose and cheeks because allergies are no joke for me during these cold months. I do not recommend for anyone using other exfoliating products in their routine but if this is your only acne targeted product step then go for it! I will keep it for tiny spot treatments on my face and my bikini area loves it because it gets rid of ingrown hairs fast!

This product is not a slove all. But it controls it.
I have horrible acne, constantly picking, popping, and in pain. This reduced my pinples to only be simple red dots.
Before they were huge and painful.
Now? Theyre like regualr zits. Does it mean theyre all gone? No. Is there way less? YES!!
Girl i love this. I have very sensitive skin too and this overnight mask doesnt bother me.
I adore it due to the fact it doesnt hurt me + controls
WARNING: dont put this on your under eye though!! Were your dark cicles are you should avoid the product going on there. Idk why but it does bother my skin by causing lines. Thats all.

I use to have really bad acne but after using this it has helped sooooo much!!! For the first couple times it did sting alil but it'll only sting if you have active acne that are open. But you will see results overnight. I will definitely be repurchasing again.

Brings pimples to a head quickly. Shrinks large painful ones overnight. This stuff has really helped within a day of using it. I'm purchasing it from using a sample. I haven't tried to use as a preventative only a spot treatment.
Grace from Chicago, IL
I have hormonal acne and not a lot of products worked until I found this one!!! I use it everyday day to prevent future breakouts as well but if I forget to keep up, it will get rid of blackheads or whiteheads in days or sometimes even overnight! AMAZING
sabina from chicago
This product has kept my acne at bay and resolved my skin texture! I use it as a serum and when i first started using it it stung quite a bit and overdried my skin. Now as long as I hydrate my skin properly, its not as drying!
Kelsey from Colorado
I had purchased this for my boyfriend who is deployed overseas and deals with more grime on his face than a typical person would experience. He had said he had tried just about everything he had access too and took with him but nothing really worked and once he received this product, it's the only thing he trusts to wipe out a breakout. His only complaint is that it smells strongly of chemicals but obviously that's what it is lol

if you EVER get the occasional hormonal breakout, you need this. even if you only use it 2x a year, it's worth it. shrunk a painful itchy welt down in hours. gone within 2 days. use this tye second you feel it coming on, complete avoided having it get worse and leave a mark that would last months.
CS from Denver
I don't tend to have a lot of breakouts, but I still do have flair ups and this is the only stuff I've found to work. Sometimes I even see pimples disappear overnight. Definitely recommend trying this!

In the short time I've used this product, I've seen a huge difference in my skin.
Koala from Ct
I had bad acne for months and tried so many products, this one actually worked. Not too sure about peoples skin peeling off? I always wash my face before i apply because if i don't then it would cause irritation. My skin hasn't been dry because i moisturize after especially with sunscreen. Works if you read the directions and warnings! Start with one application per day and then increase to two applications.
Ashton S from New York
I'm blown away by how amazing this works for my pimples, I've tried nearly every spot treatment but this is the only one that will work for me (in 2 days max as well) . I wouldn't use this as a serum , it is very drying and I only use it when I'm breaking out from stress and very stubborn whiteheads. I would recommend 100% !!!
Mac from Nyc
The list of star ingredients seemed great. Bit of a let down after using daily for at least two weeks. The applicator is the best & good sized tube. Worked ok on cystic acne (better than drug store), and works great on blemishes.
Izta from Los Angeles
I used this product to clear my complexion from acne! Didn't help! It worsened my acne!
Christine from CO
This product is very intense - I would never apply it to my whole face and neck as an all over product as the directions suggest as an option. As a spot treatment, it is okay on my skin. I am 26 with adult acne and combination skin and this product does shrink some blemishes a bit, keep deep blemishes from becoming truly horrific, and dry out acne that is closer to the surface, but it turns anything it touches on my face red, so I use it sparingly. Not my favorite spot treatment.
Cat from Las Vegas
I don't have sensitive skin, so this did not burn me like other reviews. It seems to work only on certain pimples, it made 3 big mountainous pimple go down tremendously overnight. But on smaller pimples, it doesn't seem to work at all. I've had two small pimples (still are very visible and very red) on my chin and I've applied every night on clean skin for a week now, and this morning, both have gotten bigger and redder. I will be returning since it is a product that doesn't work for all pimples for me. I don't really get bad breakouts often, but it would've been nice to have something work when I do break out and this is not something i fully have faith on.

This is far most the best working, cheapest and fastest acne spot treatment I have used. However, please use it with caution because benzyl peroxide is a very powerful ingredient on the skin. I recommend applying it on the acne for just two hours at first and then rinsing if off when you first introduce it on your skin, I use the tip of the applicator instead of applying it with my finger. The applicator is also by far the best one I have used so far for acne spot treatment products. I like that its see through, so you when the product will be coming out. Now I have been using this over a month and all my acne with white pus heads are gone and when I am on my period I dont get upset since I know I have this by my side. For the reviews that said their skin burnt off, I completely understand because that happened to me when I used it wrong the first time and left it on overnight and reapplied it again in the morning. That is not how you should be using it. Only a few hours, take some days off in between (depending on how sensitive your skin is) and then when your skin gets adjusted after two weeks or so. Best of luck! Hope this works for you as well as it did for me :)

Be careful with this. Use on a very small area first! This burned my skin and scab formed and left a bad mark.
EllessKay from Florida
I introduced this product by using it ~as needed~ but now I use it every morning and every other night before moisturizing. It doesn't make my skin oily at all; in fact, it dried out my skin at first but was resolved over time. It hasn't really cleared any acne (yet) but it has helped prevent breakouts because I barely get them now. I'm giving it four stars because I feel I haven't seen the full benefits that the description of the product goes into. It also leaves a white film that flakes when you use it as a spot treatment, and it also makes my face very red (temporarily) after I use it.
TLang from Florida
this product dries your skin out so bad. I had one large pimple on my chin so I put some of this on & it caused my chin to peel like a snake shedding. it's awful!!
Silver from SoCal
I've tried this for a couple of weeks. I've applied it when the acne starts and doesn't heal it just makes area red, itchy and doesn't speed up the process either. Also the serum itself turns like glue(elmers glue) and rubs off completely after dries. I've tried it when the acne becomes whitehead and also makes it red, itchy and doesn't dry it up either. I'm better off using a patch when the acne comes to head at least it gets the stuff out. I don't recommend. I have oily skin, kinda sensitive.
Dannie528 from CT
I have always suffered from oily, acne prone skin. Now I'm menopausal (so hormones are crazy) and as a teacher, I wear a mask for long hours at a time. Suffice it to say, my acne was out of control. I'm talking 5-6 cystic zits on my chin alone. It was painful and awful for my self esteem. I apply a thin layer of this to my entire face (not eye area) after washing and using toner. I wait for it to dry and apply my moisturizer. It's only been a week but my face is finally clearing up. For many this will be a spot treatment, but for people like me that are prone to cystic acne, it is a full face treatment used once to twice daily. Like I said before, I have oily skin and it's not sensitive, so as long as I moisture, I'm fine, but this could definitely irritate sensitive skin types or those with dryer skin.

I have dealt with hormonal acne due to birth control for the past two years. I have only been using this product for about two weeks and the results I am seeing exceed some of the higher end products I have bought to control my acne. If you suffer from acne and have tried everything you have to give this product a chance it truly is a miracle product. It does dry the skin so having a hydrating moisturizer is a must but it truly fights stubborn acne.
Samantha from Monroe, NC
I've recently stopped taking my birth control pill and my acne has gotten terrible - I've been getting very hormonal, cystic pimples. I used to have pretty clear skin with only an occasional breakout, but with stopping my birth control and getting older, my skin has been going through some major changes. I have VERY fair, sensitive skin and have never been able to use anything with benzoyl peroxide because it would irritate my skin and cause scaly red marks (totally making my acne problem WORSE) - but I got this product (and some other acne products) as a freebie from Ulta with a purchase and I decided to use it as it only has 5% benzoyl peroxide and some other ingredients that I hadn't used before. I'm in a wedding this weekend and got these two horrendous pimples on my chin, but using this as a spot treatment for the past few days has almost gotten rid of them completely. I just used this as a spot treatment and didn't use over wide areas of my skin and started off with once in the a.m. and before bed in the p.m. (after cleansing my face), and had no problems with irritation. I would definitely recommend this product!
Total_honest_ from SD
I suffer with hormonal acne and get it all over my chin and cheek. I've tired every acne treatment and they seem to either be too drying or not even work, till I found this amazing product! This brand absolutely amazing! And if you ever have those pimples underneath the skin this is the product for you!!!!
