Clearasil® Vanishing Acne Cream

This product does contain benzoyl peroxide, which is positive; however, it has a very low pH that will cause the benzoyl peroxide to break down into benzoic acid, which has no affect on acne. It also contains glycolic acid, which can cause skin peel, irritation, and redness. This product's combination of active ingredients sounds promising, but their effectiveness may be inhibited when they are combined.
