I can't believe how well this stuff works! I have tried many many products to get rid of my acne, but I would say this is one of the most effective, possibly the most effective medication. I have tried other products with 10% benzoyl peroxide and they would excessively dry out my skin, but this product doesn't dry out my skin as much. I just put on a bit of lotion and I'm good to go. Try it , you won't regret it. It got rid of big, painful, cystic acne as well as blackheads and white heads in as little as a day. I couldn't believe it, but I think I'm on my way to clear skin with the help of ZAPZIT.

It hasn't worked that amazingly for me. Maybe it's just my skin, but it is at least better than using nothing at all. It's strange. I think it will only bleach fabrics if you haven't given the product enough time to dry. I have one shirt that has been bleached but my pillow case has miraculously avoided the same fate. If like me, the product has failed to work as effectively as you had hoped, try storing it in the fridge. When you use it, dab a fair amount on the pimple but instead of rubbing it in right away, let it sit for a minute. Then go back and lightly spread the product flat over the pimple but still not rubbing all the way in. Let sit for 30 seconds before completely rubbing it in. I recommend using at night because this method will leave a bit of white residue on the skin.

    This used to work great! However I body got used to it not it doesn't work at all. If you can look past the dry skin around where the acne was then its perfect, until you've had it for a few months then you have dry skin and acne.

          This product isn't perfect (by perfect, I mean that it eliminates the pimple virtually overnight), but it's pretty good. I may take a couple of days, but it does seem to eliminate the pimple. I've tried many over the counter products over the years for occasional breakouts, and this one is among the best I've tried.

            I've been using this as a spot treatment for only a few weeks. It seems to be pretty effective even though it does dry out your skin so be sure to moisturize.

              With in 2 days my "STUBBORN" acne was gone, I was so happy and this product is cheap compared to some of the expensive acne treatment I've tried & they did not work half as good as this stuff

              This product works really for a while. You have to reapply it a few times a day for about a week and your pimples are bascially gone. I did feel however that after using it everyday for a few months my skin got used to it and it stopped working. I stopped using it for about two months and then went back to it and it worked again. It will definitely dry out your skin, so I use a moisturizer, wait a few minutes then apply this as a spot treatment.

                  Pros: fast working, reduces pimple size, fades acne scars, 10% benzoyl peroxide

                  cons: bleaches fabric, can leave a white cast were applied, can leave red marks behind

                  tip: Apply medication using a q-tip so you won't get on your clothing/or hands (this stuff stings bad if you get in your eyes).

                  After trying Proactive, Clinique, Oil of Olay, Acne Free, Neutrogena... I can keep going. This has been by far the best product! I put it on my problem areas every morning under my moisturizer so that it maintains my clear skin. When I get a pimple that is when I utilize it more and by the next day it is either gone or substantially smaller. I have recommended this product to several of my friends and family and they absolutely love it! Please think about it and try it.

                  It works great if you're diligent about application! I always reapply right after a shower or face wash, and make sure it goes on before any of my makeup. I find the grainy texture slightly odd, and sometimes after it dries I find tiny grains still stuck to my face (can be wiped off easily). Also, I haven't had problems with bleaching even though my sheets and pillowcases are dark in color. It does dry out your skin, but that's to be expected since that's how most acne-busting formulas work.
