I wouldn't say I have an acne problem by any means, but every now and then there's a sneaky little pimple that crops us and I want it zapped- fast! But I'm also very picky when it comes to acne treatments. I need them to work quickly of course, but also be gentle to my skin, not cause irritation and be easy to take on the go for on the spot treatments.
Famed dermatologist Patrica Wexler has created a great acne spot treatment that met all my criteria. It was my first time using a product from her line, and I was very excited, as I've heard fantastic things about her practice and products.
This is by far one of the best spot treatments. It's a white cream/paste that's very concentrated. For an average pimple or two, less than a small pea-sized about was needed. The cream did absorb quickly into my skin, with just a faint trace of white (this was covered easily with makeup during the day when I used it).
Within 24 hours the blemish was at least 70% smaller in size and by the 2nd day it shrank even more. Then top of the "white head" dried up and simply fell off. There was no stinging, flaking, burning or irritation in the blemish area at all.
All in all this is a wonderful on-the-go and/or overnight treatment for those of you who just get an occasional pimple or two. Works fast, non-irritating, super product! - RLB
