Review: As I mentioned in my previous post, I picked up this product while I was in the USA. It was thanks to Ruth Crilly from amodelrecommends that this product came to my attention. I have been loving it ever since I started using it. This is by far the best acne treatment I have tried. All I need to squeeze is a tiny little pearl of product for every pimple. It clears my pimples quickly without damaging my skin. It contains benzoyl peroxide. So if I apply too much, it does dry up the area a bit. To counter that, I simply apply moisturiser after using this product. I have been applying this to my nose as well and I find that my blackheads have disappeared! I am truly impressed with this product. Since I use only a tiny amount each time, I believe this product will last me a very long time. The packaging is brilliant. The squeezable tube feels of good quality. The cap is a screw-on type and the product is dispensed through a pointed tip (so that you don't end up squeezing out too much). 

You can buy this product from a UK website. I don't believe Australia has stocked this product yet. If you're visiting the USA, I suggest you purchase one

Have you tried this product before? What product do you use for acne?


  1. This sounds really good. Can you tell me where you can get this brand in the US?

    1. I bought it from CVS. You should be able to find it at any Ulta stores. :)
