Description

Anti Bac Acne Clearing Lotion targets pores to help clear existing acne, minimize excess oil production, and eliminate blackheads. Using an ultra-fine delivery system, Benzoyl Peroxide is delivered via a microscopic particle to affected areas, without over-drying. After extensive Clinic testing, this solution has been proven to produce remarkable results.

  • One of the most popular acne-fighting ingredients available without a prescription, 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, is gently delivered via a microscopic particle.
  • Advanced Liposomes help protect skin from environmental aggressors, alleviate dryness, and prevent excess water loss.
  • REGU®SEB (Argan, Saw Palmetto, and Sesame Seed Extracts) diminishes excess oil production.

 

 

How to Use

AM and PM. Use 1 to 3 times a day, as needed. Apply a thin, even layer to clean, dry skin on affected areas. Follow with moisturizer and sunscreen. Reduce the frequency of use if excessive drying occurs. 

Precautions:

Do not use Anti Bac Acne Clearing Lotion if you have extremely sensitive skin or a known allergy to Benzoyl Peroxide. If irritation occurs, reduce frequency of application to once a day or once every other day. Using other topical acne products at the same time as (or immediately following) the use of this product may exacerbate dryness or irritation. If excessive irritation occurs, discontinue use until consulting with a doctor. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and wear sunscreen when using this product. Do not get into eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, seek medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

    Great for cystic acne

    4/16/14

    I started to develop adult acne of the last few years and it is awful! I tried every product out there and they either did not work, dried out my skin, or made it worse. I stumbled upon Kate's Anti Bac in a kit last year. It worked wonders on my acne. Even the deep, painful cystic welts. I will not go without this again!

    I first started using it every night and some mornings until my acne calmed down and now use a few times a week. I have found mixing it with the Goat a Milk cream makes it so I get no drying.

    It will bleach your hair and clothing so be careful. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    If you are battling cystic acne you cannot go wrong with Anti Bac!

    An absolute savior

    4/15/14

    I adore, adore, adore this product! Of all of the Kate Somerville products I've used, this would be one of the best. I use this with the ExfoliKate Acne and Kate's acne face wash, but I can definitely tell a difference if I use the other two products without this antibac lotion. The lotion takes care of pimples very quickly -- definitely recommend!

    Slowly but surely, seeing my skin clear

    4/10/14

    I've been using the Anti Bac Clearing Lotion for over a year and although my skin isn't 100% clear, I've noticed a big difference. I still suffer from hormonal acne (age 29!) and I turned to Kate Somerville products because I was sick of paying a dermatologist to rotate different skin creams each month - I just want something to work!

    I love that this lotion doesn't have a chemical smell and it doesn't irritate my skin. I wash my face day and night with the Daily Detox wash (sometimes with my Clairsonic) and then use the Anti Bac lotion, topped with my daily moisturizer. Using Anti Bac lotion consistently makes a huge difference for me!

    This product came in a kit I purchased for my teenage daughter. Since I still have occasional break outs I started borrowing hers' and saw amazing results. Both the pore size and amount of blackheads have been reduced. That's amazing!! When I think about how much I've spent on drug store products that never showed any results...I consider this a bargain!
    Soooooooooo worth it!!

    Non-drying gentle acne treatment

    3/21/14

    Most acne treatments leave my skin dry and irritated on the spots that i use it. This one does not do that. It's not as strong as other acne treatments so it will take a few more days to clear up acne spots, but i think it's worth the wait to not have dry flaky skin patches left over. It's also gentle enough to use everyday.

    3/16/14

    I absolutely love the concept of this product. When my SA at Neiman's suggested it I really loved the idead of what it could do to my skin. When I know I will be out all day exposing my skin to impurities, I just apply it before my moisturizer and it really seems to protect me from clogged pores and dirt. It is also very lightweight, and I don't have to wait too long in between applying this and my moisturizer.

    Wonderful, especially with patience & realism!

    2/24/14

    Bottom line, I think it's a really good acne treatment product, especially with its lotion feel/texture. I truly believe it can help acne on any skin type (dry, combination, oily, normal, sensitive, etc.), especially with a willingness to experiment on frequency & quantity used if the results over a reasonable duration are unsatisfactory!! While we all dream of those miracle products with instant, drastic results, this product requires more realistic expectations in my experience.

    When1st looking into Kate Somerville, my primary concerns were dryness & preemptive anti-aging. Acne was more of an underlying issue. To cover my bases, I got the Anti Bac Lotion along w/ the following: Gentle Cleanser, ExfoliKate, Discoloration Perfector, an anti-aging moisturizer, & the sunscreen. Not long after, I began chemotherapy, quickly altering my hormones & skin. As dryness still outweighed acne concerns, I used the Anti Bac Lotion sparingly--ltd. to trouble areas 2-3/wk. My skin's overall condition & appearance improved; exactly which product(s) helped what issue(s) most was unclear.
    Since completing chemo a few months ago, my skin type/issues changed again, & much for the worse. I broke out significantly along my jawline, neck, cheeks, temples, forehead w/ each area presenting different types of acne (including a couple types I'd never suffered before)! As a result, I've begun trying the Anti Bac Lotion more often & in greater portions. While helping some, I've decided my needs need reassessment & other Kate Somerville products may be a better fit--at least for now. (However, I wanted to include that I'm positive ExfoliKate, the sunscreen & this product, the Anti Bac Lotion, will still be go-to's!)

    This product has helped out my skin SO much. I use it every morning and night around my chin, nose and t-zone. It definitely helps with the oil, and it's also been amazing for helping out with breakouts and especially blackheads. I have seen a significance difference in my blackheads since using this product that I haven't seen with any other product. Will continue to buy this!

    I use this around 'that time of the month' when my skin is at its worst. I apply just one pump to my face and then apply Goat Milk cream on top. This is not too drying and does just what it says--it clears up acne. My skin always looks really nice the morning after I've used this.

    i have been using benzoyl peroxide products on and off for almost 15 years. this product is excellent because it is effective yet mild. i use it in the morning mixed with Daily Discoloration Perfector and i think the combination is helping to keep my skin clear and reduce discoloration after years of mild to moderate acne.

    Best Benzoyl Peroxide Product on the Market

    2/1/14

    I have struggled with adult acne over the last year. In my desperation to clear it up, I have tried quite a few products. Other products containing benzoyl peroxide have only burned my face and completely dried it out leaving me more prone to breakouts.

    This product does not totally dry out my face though I make sure I follow it with a serum and moisturizer. It manages to clear my skin pretty quickly without totally drying out my face. I have found that it also leaves minimal scarring which is a bonus. I make sure I have this lotion in my medicine cabinet at all times for skincare emergencies.

    I use this product whenever I get acne breakouts. It clears my skin (I usually see a noticeable improvement within 2, 3 days) without drying it too much and without the stinging feeling that's typical of most acne products.
    Definitely one of the best acne treatments I've used.

    Clearing Up

    Must Have!!!

    1/8/14

    I love this product although, it can dry your face out so be careful. I initially started out using it twice a day as instructed but my face began to feel dry to cut it down to once a day to give my face time to adjust to a new product. Once the dryness calmed down I upped the usage back to twice a day and have not had any problems. I definately recommed this product to acne prone skin, although I consider it to be quite pricey. I once ran out of the product and took my time ordering again and it was a big mistake. After a week my acne began to flare up again so I repurchased and now my skin is back to the way it should be.

I have sensitive skin and bad acne, but didn't have any issues in using this product. I would recommend trying a sample if you can first, just because of all the ingredients, but I highly recommend it based on my experiences.

    Great Acne Treatment

    12/26/13

    After changing my skincare routine over the summer, my face broke out more than it ever has before. I finally ordered this product (along with the Blemish Banisher kit) and it has been amazing! It helps treat existing blemishes while preventing new ones, and I saw a noticeable improvement within the first week of use. In the beginning, I used this once a day every day, but I only use it a couple times a week now that my skin has really improved. Be sure to follow with a moisturizer though as it can be a bit drying. Some advice I got from reviews on a different site: if you feel any irritation when using this product, try patting it on the skin rather than rubbing it in. This method really helped my sensitive skin!

    Helped With My Acne

    12/25/13

    I have been using this product for about 3 weeks and it has really helped to reduce the frequency of my acne breakouts. The only downside of this product, for me, is that it dries out my skin significantly, I started out using it twice a day, morning and night. I have now switched to only using at night and I have to apply a very thick moisturizer after. This is the only way to keep it from drying out my skin. So far, this method had worked great and I'm seeing much less breakouts.

    12/20/13

    I really like this clearing lotion so far. Goes on easily, doesn't stain, and doesn't burn or sting like other acne treatments. My face is clearing up as well. Overall good product!
    The reason I gave it 4 stars is because the directions on the bottle are not specific.
    It says apply to affected area. To me that seems like only on existing acne but the description of products reads otherwise. The description seems like its preventative and helps with oil and blackheads which is what I want but how could that be if you only apply to affected area? So this leaves me confused how to use the product and I have emailed customer service and waiting on reply.

    Whahahahahaha! (Evil laugh) I have finally found a way to defeat you breakout!

    After trying hundreds of benzo and sacylic acid treatments and lotions it is amazing to find a medicated hydrating product that works! I use it only at night and on the areas I breakout most. Be careful it can be drying so I use goat milk over it. Go to bed with a few pimples brewing on my cheeks and chin and wake up without them and tight glowing skin.

    IMPORTANT: If you have any struggles with acne this is a must have product.

    11/18/13

    This lotion is amazing. Once I hit my 20's, I started getting cystic acne along my jaw line that just wasn't going away with my normal "drugstore" skin care products. I started using Kate Somerville, and it dramatically improved my skin. However, the cystic acne, although lessened, still remained. I purchased this lotion after reading the positive reviews and thought I would give it a try. I'm so glad I did! I use this every morning on my "trouble spots" and it has really helped with the painful cystic acne I was getting. I do say "be aware" because it can be REALLY drying, and I have incredibly oily skin. When I first applied this, I think I over applied because my skin was burning like crazy and felt really tight. The next day, i applied less than a pea sized amount to my trouble areas and there was no burning or dryness. So I say use this in moderation...you don't need a ton to treat your skin! It truly works and, even better, it doesn't flake under your makeup like some treatment lotions do.

    Great Product!

    11/18/13

    I purchased this on-line from a big cosmetics department store because I was also ordering other things and did not know about points until today. I came on here just to review this product! You do have to be careful not to get this anywhere near your eyes and possibly use a moisturizer or don't overuse (try using every other night if you have dry , sensitive skin). However, if you have adult acne like I do, this product and Kate is a Godsend. it is not overly drying for a benzoyl peroxide product , especially of this strength. It has really helped me out so much and relatively quickly too! I do wish it were a bit less pricey but I will continue buying this and with points, it's a great deal because it really helps! I do use a primer with salicylic acid in the morning as well, using salicylic acids and benzoyl peroxide are almost always a really good combo. for acne blemished skin. Hope this helps! Thank you , Kate! : )

    Initially this product was very drying to my skin. I backed off to using it every other day, until my skin got used to it, and then started doing it once a day. Now I can use every evening and then spot treat areas each morning. So far, this regimen is the only thing that has helped my 30's acne from spiraling out of control. I use this with the daily detox wash and an oil free moisturizer. I also alternate Exfolikate and the Clearing Mask as needed. Amazing stuff!

    Decreases Acne Dramatically

    10/28/13

    I purchased this item 6 weeks ago after having tried many other products for acne. I am pleased to report that the Anti Bac Clearing Lotion Acne Treatment has significantly reduced my breakouts, and I've even had clear skin some days this month. I have found that since I have sensitive skin I should only use it every other day as opposed to daily and I apply it before I apply my moisturizer. This product doesn't leave my skin feeling too tight or dried out and now I have a better complexion!

    Worth the price

    10/12/13

    For years, I have been looking for an anti-acne treatment to use underneath a light moisturizer. This is the best one I've found and much more effective than treatments with salicylic acid. The 5 percent benzoyl peroxide is not drying and works just as well as 10 percent benzoyl peroxide. I find that this takes care of zits overnight and works as a spot treatment for pimples that are about to come to the surface. Plus, after I've squeezed out some blackheads (yes, I've heard that's not a good idea, but I've never had a problem with doing so and my skin is not delicate/sensitive/thin), this keeps the crater-size pores on my nose clearer for much longer than anything else. And because this is not drying, I'm sure I'll be able to use it without a moisturizer in summer, when the weather gets so hot and humid where I live.

    I only got a sample of this product from a fashion show from quite a long time ago but I absolutely love it. I only use it as a spot treatment or in a small area when I break out more than usual but this product does the job. The acne is always gone after 1-2 applications. It lasts forever and I only have a .16oz tester! Now that is saying something! I plan on buying again when I run out. So happy I found this product it is the solution I have been searching for!

    I bought this product about a year ago in conjunction with Kate's Blemish Banisher kit.

    I do like this lotion; it is effective, lasts forever (it is a generous size), and does not irritate my combination skin.

    That being said, I don't think it is much better than other, less expensive acne treating options.

    It is a good, but if you want to spend money on Kate's products, I think there are better options. See: Eradikate for spot treatment, Exfolikate for weekly renewal

    Beware!

    7/1/13

    I have only been using this product a week. It has brought out clogged pores to the surface to be cleansed away. So far so good. Hasn't dried my skin like I thought it would. BUT, the only down side is that I put in on before bed and it bleached out the color of my pillow case. There should be a warning label on the bottle or in the description of the product. Now my sheets are ruined :(. So, just be mindful of this when applying before bed.

    Best peroxide product on the market

    6/21/13

    The Anti Bac Clearing Lotion is the most non-drying peroxide product on the market. If you are sensitive to other products containing peroxide, this would be worth trying. I did notice my skin does dry out if I use too frequently or use too much of it, so if you are sensitive, you should be careful with frequency and quantity until you find what works for your skin. A little goes a long way.

Also my skin is quite sensitive so you don't need a lot o this product whatsoever.

    My Favorite BP Treatment

    4/8/13

    Fragrance-free, matte finish. Unlike other benzoyl peroxides, this one doesn't seem to dry my skin out too much or bleach my pillowcases and towels. When I first applied it, I wasn't sure whether it was being absorbed into my skin enough, but it works just great under makeup and SPF lotions. As for any BP treatment, for sensitive skin, it will be slightly irritating at first, but this is the least irritating one I've ever tried, and it ceased to be irritating after the first few days. Now I use it for maintenance, and it definitely keeps blemishes from cropping up.

    helps my face stay clear

    3/25/13

    I like this acne treatment because it doesn't dry my skin out too much. I have very oily skin, so when medications over-dry my skin, my face produces even more oil which results in more acne. This doesn't do that! I have tried a multitude of over-the-counter products and prescription creams and medications, and nothing has cleared up my skin for good. This is no miracle lotion, I still don't have perfect skin, but this works the best out of anything I have tried. I have clogged pores as well as cystic acne, and this helps with both. I notice a difference in my skin if I don't use it for a couple of days which is why I will keep buying it and using it every day! I have had acne for over 15 years, and this is one of the few products that actually gives results.

    Very Effective

    3/11/13

    Having suffered with severe cystic acne for over a decade now, I have tried almost every topical lotion (prescription and beauty/drugstore brands) on the market. The prescription creams were too harsh, often leaving my skin with rashes or burns and the drugstore brands weren't strong enough to be effective. This product is FANTASTIC!!! For the first week I used it twice a day but found that my skin became too dry so now I use it once daily and night and mix it with the Oil-Free Moisturizer and my skin has never been more clear.

    Holy Grail Product

    1/22/13

    This product in combination with Exfolikate and Resurfacing Peel Pads have truly transformed my skin. I am in early 30's with combo skin. I suffer from hormonal breakouts and also clogged pores that turn into inflammation and scarring on my chin and jawline. I've always had good skin and I was beyond frustrated that I could no longer leave the house without some major cover up. I've tried just about everything I've set my eyes on with very little success. I was on the verge of seeking professional help before discovering Kate Somerville. I was at first intrigued by the Peel Pads and later got Exfolikate after discovering that it's almost a cult product. I've had good results using them with Murad products but they did not entirely rid off those stubborn clogged pores that persistently show up on my chin. I had high hopes when I decided to add this product to my skin regimen after reading good reviews. I am not exaggerating that this product cleared those pesky pores after just one application. On day two, I already felt like I had my old skin back. Now I am on day five, my skin is still blemish free and the scars are beginning to fade. For the first time in three years, I would not hesitate to leave the house makeup free. I am so relieved that I have finally found a product that treats my skin concerns. I will also be adding the toner, Detox cleanser, and Acne Clearing Treatment to my skin regimen. Kate Somerville is by far the most effective products I have yet to try and I urge anyone who suffers the same skin condition to do the same!

    I've found this to be effective in treating my acne. I use this with the Oil Free moisturizer b/c it can be a bit drying - mix 1 to 2 pumps of the AntiBac with 1 pump of the moisturizer.

    If you have dry skin, have even the slightest sensitivity then this product will be an absolute mistake! After one use this dried my skin so badly and I had this what felt like a burn all over my face for days. I instantly broke out all over and since my main concern is Acne you can see why I was very upset! If you suffer from acne you can treat it just fine without this product. The products in the Blemish Banisher kit really are all that you need.

    I used the Quench Oil Free Hydrating Face Serum to help recover fromthe painful dryness. I got a sample with an order I placed and decided it was time to try it. It saved me!

    confused

    4/26/12

    I recently purchased the acne kit and am wondering why this product wouldn't be included? I thought it was missing some type of night treatment, and this appears to be it. I am noticing great improvement with the products in the kit, but it seems like this one is necessary for someone who is truly fighting adult acne.

    Acne Beware!!

    11/30/11

    I first purchased this as a part of the 911 kit, which cleared my acne when nothing else would-prescription meds that means you as well! I use in the evening under Cytocell and now only have the occasional "time of month" blemish and my skin is never oily. It is not drying to my skin and works better than anything I have tried, and I have tried most everything. You won't be let down by this miracle worker.

    I was so excited to try this- because I love KS products. Unfortunately hasn't worked.

    Could Use Some Improvement

    10/22/11

    Out of all of the Kate products I have used, this is my least favorite. I have found I must mix it with another product (Clinique Acne Solutions Moisturizer) to keep things clear. Both of these products are less than great alone, but together work wonderful!! However, I gave the product three stars because if you ONLY need to clear blackheads, this is the product that will do so.

    Best Acne Lotion on Market!

    9/30/11

    I've only had this product for 5 days and my face is clearer than it's ever been. I've struggled with adult acne since having my first child and have tried numerous products to clear it. Nothing has worked, until now! I bought this product and started using it twice daily and I only have two small blemishes left, but even they are almost gone. my face is clear and I couldn't be happier. I will never use anything else on my face. Worth every penny!

    Clearing, Oil Reducing & Essential for any one with Oily/Acne Prone Skin

    9/7/11

    I've used every acne line/products from Perricone, Fresh, ProActiv, Murad, Epicurean, Origins and more...and Anti Bac Clearing Lotion is the only product that does not over dry my skin while seriously reducing oil and preventing breakouts. I noticed an immediate difference in oil reduction and overtime i've experienced fewer and fewer breakouts. I use the whole acne line and switch off between regular ExfoliKate and the acne one. This product is an essential part of my product lineup, and when i forget to apply it for a couple of days, i can tell - my face starts to flare up again and gets more oily by midday. I highly recommend this lotion to anyone looking to combat oil and acne.
