Product Review: Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream

In the last few months, my skin has been very terrible. I have been breaking out like crazy. I actually think it could have been the water in CT that caused my skin havoc.. since being back in Maryland, I feel like my skin has improved a lot. Regardless, I tried a whole bunch of acne products to try to calm my skin.

One of the products I tried was Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream, Tinted, 1 oz. Its a super strong formulation with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Medication as opposed the usual 2% formulations. It touted clearer skin in just 3 days. Also, with this product, you must use sunscreen if going outdoors (this is why its impt the read the labeling otherwise you might not catch this pt!) Due to the higher concentration, a possible side effect would be skin irritation and redness and also due to excessive drying, you should start with one application and work up to 3 applications.

I did feel like this product worked quickly to resolve some of my acne spots, but I experienced excessive drying in the areas I applied and in some spots, I felt that it darkened my skin in that area. If you need something quick acting, this product is definitely good, but I would recommend using a very small amount and only at night time since it is advised to limit sun-use with this product probably due to product interactions with the sun.
