So, this product works well to prevent and heal up breakouts BUT...the consistency of the product is not conducive to applying moisturizer after which is essential when using a 10% BP solution. When the ZZ dries fully, you'd expect your moisturizer to glide on easily afterwards. With ZZ, I've discovered that no matter what moisturizer I follow up with, the ZZ starts to ball up and flake away causing anything but a smooth surface, which is what I look for in an effective acne treatment. Though the price and packaging is sufficient, I'd say I wouldn't purchase this product again. For a cheapo, DS, BP product, I recommend the Equate BP Gel which has just as much BP but absorbs into the skin much more thoroughly and enhances moisturizer application after it dries for smooth, clear results. If I'm not going anywhere and it's summertime in Texas, I'll continue to use the ZZ when I need to for spot treatment just to use up the tube but I will not purchase again.

I don't use this to prevent acne, but to help get rid of it quickly. It works really well at getting cystic pimples to go away quickly.

this product really works
i was just curious and decided to try this out
im a teenager and have oily skin
before i started this product i used oxy spot treatment and clean and clear salycilic acid spot treatment
and they didnt really help me
i apply this before i go to bed
just the tiniest amount using the back of my make up brush on my pimples or anywhere i feel like im getting a break out
CURRENTLY i have a few pimples but its amazing to what it did in just 3 days ... it does make u red but its better than having yellow nasty pimples so try it

I used ot use this 2 years ago and for a while then it worked well, but once my skin got used to it, it did nothing. Now I started it again and for 1 week I've been using it twice a day with little improvement. It just dried my skin out in the areas I applied it and didnt get rid of pimples. As much as I wanted to like it, I think that I will stick with higher end brands.

Now, I always get complimented on my skin. How clear it is, how I don't get acne extremely often, maybe one or two on my chin around my period. Honestly, its because of this product. I put this on every night before I go to bed on my entire face (this might not work on everyone, as my skin is extremely sturdy and doesn't get agitated very often), and in the morning it not only prevents any acne that might be bubbling up, but it also just makes my face clearer in general. I usually mix it with my moisturizer (Clean & Clear Dual Action) because its 10% and is quite drying during the winter months, and its perrrfect! Definitely worth trying out!

GREAT acne treatment - dries zits up in no time at all & at nearly half the price of the 'name-brand'. Like others have mentioned, it is more of a cream than gel. Make sure after you have applied it and it has dried, put a layer of moisturizer over top; light moisturizer if you have oily skin or heavier layer if you have more normal/combination skin. Doing this extra step will keep your face from drying out like crazy, (It is 10% BP after all). This stuff really does work wonders if you do it diligently.

Well, I agree with the reviewer before me; it's not really a gel. It's a white paste that feels like an exfoliator once it touches your skin. I don't see any improvement by using Zapzyt. I still get pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. The existing pimples didn't dry up either, but my skin was. I have oily skin but after using Zapzyt for a couple of days, my skin gets so dry that foundation would look horrible. I tried using very little amount of product and only apply it every other day. Same result; didn't do anything to my pimples, my skin gets super dry, and I develop redness around my chin. I will not continue to use this and will not repurchase.

Nope. Didn't do it for me. First, it did zero for any pimples in any stage on my face, whether big or small. Second, IT'S NOT A GEL. It's a paste or a cream.

This stuff sucked.

First off the product didn't work very well on me. I bought it because I read good reviews on the product, but it took longer to get rid of my zit than my advantage clean and clear. It leaves a white residue when you put it on your face and it also bleached my pillow sheets! I will never purchase this ever again!!!!!!
