Prevents and clears acne breakouts Helps repair and condition damaged skin
Love this stuff! I have been using Acne Therapy Lotion for over a month now, and combined with the Daily Face Wash, nothing has worked better to stop my breakouts. I had problems for years with my forehead. I tried EVERYTHING in the book, and nothing worked. But, in under a month, my face has completely changed. No more breakouts, and old acne marks have started to heal. This product is a real game changer!! Thanks Menscience!!
Breakouts kept at bay!
By Robert S from Los Angeles CA
I frequently get break outs around my nose and mouth area...probably because I keep putting my head in my hands! The products my dermatologist keeps putting me on dry out the skin area and cause flaking of the skin. The Men Science Acne Therapy Lotion has helped to keep my breakouts at bay while not drying out my skin. EVEN BETTER!!!
pretty good and gentle

This isn't your typical teenage acne treatment that burns and flakes your skin. this lotion acts a bit more mildly, but it doesn't destroy my sensitive skin. i can use it once a day at night (when i remember), and no irritation...which is rare for me. i wouldn't say it makes blemishes vanish overnight...but it does minimize them. i used it for bumps on my forehead that just weren't going away. they've minimized dramatically over the past coulple weeks.

Unfortunately this product didn't help me with my acne, nor did it help get rid of any scarring. Recently moved to prescription strength items and am seeing much better results. Perhaps this stuff works well for others, but unfortunately, it did not perform as advertised for me.

I have normal skin but I tend to breakout regularly at least twice a month. I have been using this product for 4 months and it is the most effective acne treatment I have found to control my acne. Not only have are acne breakouts almost gone, but my skin looks much smoother and the acne marks are disappearing. I use this cream almost daily (I also use the face scrub to cleanse my face and the menscinece face tonic) and I would recommend it as a standard acne prevention measure.
im keeping my fingers crossed...

It's great using this product after face wash and then MenScience toner. Think of it like a lotion that is nice to the skin but has a little acne fighting ingredients in it. So, it's like having the benefits of a face lotion + acne fighting. However, nothing beats the straight up, plain MenScience face lotion.
Works...but u actually have to use it..

I find this Product useful when I only use it at night, and not twice a day like normal acne lotions. I use the lotion after I use the daily face wash at night. I find it has helped pimples from forming in the first place, and I can definitely notice if I miss a night. If i do feel a blemish forming and I use the product it helps out immensely.
Seems to be working but...

Seems to be working. Has controlled area breakouts but still several local breakouts. Biggest complaint: advertised for back acne but tube is high priced for small amount, after applying to entire back daily, tube lasted under two weeks. This is a high monthly price for a back acne solution that provides moderate results.
• To target individual, existing blemishes, apply Acne Spot Repair to pimples only.
How often should I use the Acne Therapy Lotion?
Apply the product once a day, then gradually increase to twice a day if needed.
What is the difference between the Acne Therapy Lotion and Acne Spot Repair?
The Acne Spot Repair is formulated to treat existing blemishes and should only be applied to spots. Once these blemishes have been diminished, the Acne Therapy Lotion is used to treat and prevent further outbreaks.
Why is Benzoyl Peroxide the most effective acne treatment?
Benzoyl Peroxide is an antibacterial ingredient prescribed by dermatologists as the preferred topical medicine for safe treatment for acne. It clears acne-causing bacteria on the surface, absorbs excessive oils and clear pores while promoting greater cell exfoliation and renewal.
What do you recommend for acne-prone skin?
Keep skin clean by washing with Daily Face Wash twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Apply Acne Spot Repair to eliminate existing blemishes. Once blemishes have been controlled, regularly use Acne Therapy Lotion to prevent future outbreaks. Only use products that are non-irritating and noncomedogenic. Do not pick at or pop blemishes, and twice a week, use Microfine Face Scrub to exfoliate skin and unclog pores.
Should I apply sun protection when using this product?
Because Acne Therapy Lotion contains Benzoyl Peroxide, which has powerful antibacterial and exfoliating qualities, skin may become more sensitive to sun exposure. We recommend you use TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30 when going outside to avoid irritation and prevent darkening of acne scars and marks.
Antibacterial ingredient prescribed by dermatologists as the preferred topical medicine for safe treatment for acne. Benzoyl Peroxide absorbs into the skin and clears acne-causing bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes) on the surface.
Superior anti-irritant and soothing agent of botanical origin. Specially appropriate for sensitive, irritated or stressed skin. Used in small concentrations due to active properties.
Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis)
Powerful antioxidant with high content of catechin and phenolic acids. Plays an important role defending against free radicals, and soothing and calming stressed skin.
Moisturizer capable of attracting and retaining water. Helps in the absorption of other ingredients. Credited with protecting the skin, due to buffering and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate)
Helps to improve the skin's texture, elasticity, firmness and smoothness. Plays a role in regeneration of skin cells and in anti-aging treatments.
Helps protect and repair the skin and improve its appearance due to antioxidant and skin-brightening capabilities.
Considered the most important topical antioxidant and free-radical scavenger. Helps the skin retain moisture, and to prevent irritation, reduce fine lines and slow the aging process.
Panthenol (Vitamin B5)
Moisturizer with penetrating abilities to support cellular proliferation and tissue repair. Binds to cells and attracts moisture to repair damage and increase elasticity.
