I really liked this, despite reading LOADS of rubbish reviews here i decided to buy it anyway! i thought it worked well, was fairly easy to apply and since i have fairly dry/sensitive skin it didn't sting. i LURRRVVEE most Beneft products that ive used and i am total fan!!!!!

This is not meant to be applied all over the face. I put a q tip at the opening and just dab some on the occasional big pimple. What it does is it dries the pimple quickly so it can go away. The problem is that sometimes it causes scabbing. Overall, its not terrible, but you can get something as good OR better for less than $5 at your local drugstore. Would not repurchase.

i have problem prone skin, some bumps and blackheads, but not "acne" per se. this really didn't work for me-- when applied to blemishes, it dried out the skin around them too much. i also REALLY didn't like the horrible color and smell; i prefer less conspicuous treatments. also, after maybe a month of not really using mine the product kind of separated. eew. it's fine, but i think you could do just as well with something from the drugstore; i've since found murad's spot treatment.

I am not sure how this works on true acne, but for my occassional, cyclical pimple - this stuff clears it up overnight!

Shocking to see so many negative reviews on Boo Boo Zap when it remains one of the top selling skincare products in the Benefit store and customers return to buy it, raving to me how wonderful it is. In two years, I've never heard a complaint about it until I saw the reviews on this site. Strange! I wonder what is going on! I have two vials and I really like it. Worked for my acne and my closest friends acne.. why not your acne?

I bought this because i loved the name and the packaging... i'm a sucker for that! It didn't really do anything special. And it's quite expensive for such a small vial.

My skin is constantly breaking out...but I really haven't seen much improvement with this. Also, it is so awkward to use!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I got sucked into buying this. It does nothing for my spots at all. I still have a tub full, thinking I might just chuck it in the bin. A complete waste. And to think it cost me £20. Ouch.

This product was a disappointment, after having read somewhere that it was great! Found it has done nothing for my cystic acne-type bumps on my chin, despite dabbing on several times a day as suggested. Maybe it works on normal small spots. Bottle is quite easy to tip over and product easily spills. Would not buy this again and may even throw the rest of it out! This was an expensive mistake.

I think not ! I have had better results with perfume and vodka !

Yes, I got suckered into the Benefit hype again. $18 for a tiny tube of crap, that I could have gotten at a drugstore for less than $5. Was completely uneffective. Ladies, save your money!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I am a Benefit fan, but I didn't like this product. The tube was, first of all, too small for how much I paid for it. Also, it didn't work quickly like it promised to. I prefer my Clean and Clear products to this. I was disappointed because it got praise from some celebrities. I saw nothing great.

I probably won't be buying this one again. I have bought it twice before though. The first time I bought it, I spilled half the bottle the second time I used it, and then it sat in my makeup drawer for almost a year, and finally ran out. Seeing, that I didn't give it a very good try the first time, I decided that I should buy it again. After all, it has a high price tag, it must be better than other things that I've tried. I feel SOOO stupid now. $18. I can't believe I shelled out another $18 for something that has lasted me just over a month (used regularly), and doesn't do anything that I haven't seen before. Honestly, I got better results from using rubbing alcohol on my zits. I'm not spending this much money on another zit treatment unless it lasts longer, and has better results. I'm off to the pharmacy to get my rubbing alcohol.

I'm embarassed to admit that I bought this. It's a freakin' asprin or two dissolved in some witch hazel and camphor oil from what I can tell. For $18. Oh, and that bit about dabbing it over makeup -- sure, if you don't mind a line on your face where the stuff runs down and takes off the makeup along the way. I think the Benefit twins must be laughing all the way to the bank!

Don't hate me, but I have to give this product a top rating. If you do it right--dabbing it on several times throughout the day, even over your makeup---it *will* speed the healing process on your blemishes. At least it does for me, and I use this daily, any time I see a red bump coming up (as well as to help get rid of ones that have already erupted). And, to counter the comment made by the poster above, if you DAB it on with your fingertip it will not run or affect your makeup in any way. The trick to the bottle is to put your fingertip over the opening, tip the bottle up, and then set it back upright. The little reservoir in the top fills with just enough product for you to dab 2-3 times, and then it's empty and you either do it again or you're done. This wets your fingertip just enough for an application---you don't pour this on your face. The flakes separating in the bottle don't concern me, they don't affect the product's performance in any way (it's just the ingredients, it's nothing gross or worrisome). This works especially well around the lip area, as it doesn't dry your skin out needlessly and also doesn't burn like many zit medicines. I love this stuff and wouldn't be without it! It isn't a cure-all instant fix, but in addition to your once-daily heavy-duty zit medicine, this makes a fantastic speed-the-process addition. Decreased the healing time on my problem areas by several days---I'm not sure it's worth the inflated price, but I would (and will) definitely keep this in stock in my cosmetics drawer and makeup bag.

Part of a mass order I had high hopes for this but was disappointed.
First time opening the package I spillt half of it and I don't see how you can dab it on without spilling loads...
Didn't seem to make any difference either.
At least it doesn't sting or anything like that..

Its soo cute, my friend has it i tried it twice and it didn't do anything. It made more pimples if anything, and i know ive only used it twice, but my friends been using it everyday, i dont see any improvement.

once again, dooped by the marketing. adorable packaging, but i could not notice any sort of effect from the product, good or bad. might as well been dapping diet coke on my skin.

this product was such a waste of money! it did NOTHING at all for my zits, not even take away the redness or reduce it. towards the middle of its use, everything started to clump together inside the tube so it looked like a bunch of white stuff collected at the bottom with clear liquid above it. the tube is glass, which made me fear of dropping it. either way, save your money and don't buy this useless product!

Wow, my first negative review. This is a milestone for me. Anyway, I saw this on Sephora and reeeeaaaallllllyy wanted it because it sounded like a cure-all for my zits. I tried to like it, but it did absolutely nothing and was terribly expensive. Also, the bottle is made out of glass which is not practical. I would always worry that it would break in my makeup bag and leak in my backpack. Also, it flaked and looked really disgusting, like old dishwater. This product should just be taken off the market.
