Anti Bac

Clearing Lotion Acne Treatment
2 points per dollar


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. 


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.

    • I have moderate acne and this lotion really keeps it in check. I use it all over my face as a lotion every 2-3 days (otherwise my skin just gets too dry) and use it as a spot treatment as needed. It speeds up the healing process and gets rid of any surface bacteria. Very effective but start slow if you have sensitive skin.

    • I love Kate Somerville products. However, this one was far too potent for my skin. Within a day or so I developed eczema. Also, be forewarned that if you use it at night it will bleach your sheets. Love most products but this one just wasn't great for me.

    • Nice cream for helping heal acne flare ups. Just don't make the mistake and apply too much over too large of a surface area: ) I had a reaction to it making both cheeks bright red for a couple of days :) It got better though, and I can definitely tell a difference in my skin! I still get cystic acne on my cheeks every few weeks, but this seems to help stop them from getting too big or coming to a head.

    • This product is very effective on pimples, i do like to only apply it directly do current breakouts. If i put in on areas of my skin that tend to break out but do not have a pimple, i do feel like it tends to dry out my skin a little. So i prefer to just apply directly to current pimples. I feel if i use it regularly my pimple usually will clear up in a week or less.

    • I am now 34 years old and have suffered from acne for 20 years. Like others, I have tried countless products and spent $1000s trying to find something that works. I was a bit skeptical that something with the active ingredient of BP could work so well, since drugstore brand BP products have not worked for me in the past. After my latest dermatologist prescribed regimen consisting of 3 topical treatments including RetinA and oral antibiotics was only working "OK", I read the reviews of this products and decided to quit my prescriptions and try this. I have been using this product for 2 months now I could not be happier with the results. My skin is finally clear! I can go out in public without make-up! In fact, I feel good about myself without make-up. I feel and act more confident without acne. After about 2 weeks of seeing great results with this product (I use it am and pm), I added the oil free moisturizer (I use after letting this treatment set in skin about 10 minutes) and ExfoliKate (the original) twice a week. . I have never written a review for an acne product before because I have never found one that actually works. If you have acne, please try this. It could change your life.

    • I found that using this product on its own can be a bit drying. My skin peeled off in a few applications. After consulting with Kate's customer representatives, I pair it with the oil free moisturizer that I received as a complimentary gift. This drastically helped with the drying. I have some acne and blemishes right under my chin around the hair line from sweating during tennis. I found that using this product with Kate's moisturizer gets rid of the blemishes and the swelling in just a couple days.

    • I think I like this lotion, but I'm not quite sure if it's needed. I use the entire system and I'm not quite sure if I do everything in the right order. I wash with the detox wash, then use the clarifying toner, then I use this product just on the break outs and once its dry I apply the HydraClear Gel to my entire face. I really like the entire system and have not had issues with dryness or redness. My face is not completely clear, but I haven't has issues with blackheads (which I had a horrible experience with with a different company) and I would say my acne is controlled. I like that the system takes care of my skin and doesn't just try to fight my acne.

    • I purchased the Anti Bac after reading reviews since I still occasionally suffer from cystic acne. This lotion is amazingly awesome. I had a small flare up and before it could even come to a head, the Anti Bac soothed the blemish and was practically gone overnight. I can't believe I finally found a skin care line that actually controls and heals my acne. Thank you, Kate! Thank you!!

    • Let's face it - benzoyl peroxide works! I use daily on chest, shoulders and upper back in areas where I tend to break out after working out. This works beautifully and leaves my skin super clear. Typical BP scent - nothing great, and of course will stain clothing and towels.
      This product excels in that it is difficult to find a high concentration of BP in a formulation that will spread over larger areas, or even the entire face, as most are made to spot treat. This easily spreads over chest, shoulders and upper back with 2-3 pumps max.

    • I knew my skin was improving, but after years (47) of struggling with sensitive skin and acne, the payoff was when my mom commented at a family reunion, "whatever you are using on your skin, keep using it." My skin looks better than it has in years. This has helped clear up my skin without over drying; if my skin starts looking a little dry, I switch to using this every other day. I am a natural red head with very fair skin, and have been looking for this product all my life. This is my first online review ever, so you know I am extremely satisfied with this product.

    • I found this product is effective but a little bit too strong. It is effective for diminishing the acne. However, after applying for three days, my skin got irritation. The effective ingredient has a high concentration in this product, which must be taken good care with.

    • .

      First off, I just want to state that I have very painful, severe cystic acne. This product wasn't disappointing and I'm sure if my acne were mild, it would help a lot. Unfortunately, this product didn't work as much for me. As far as it being an acne product without having to take an expensive trip to the dermatologist, it isn't deplorable at all. It applies and absorbs very well. Lacks the typical medicine smell that comes with topical acne products with harsh ingredients.

    • I discovered kate somerville & kate's grand products through Nordstrom's, and bless that Nordstrom employee for introducing me to easily my favorite skin care products.
      This is why:
      -they WORK (they work. I promise.)
      -they have a good appearance (they design is not ugly)
      I use my Anti Bacteria Lotion everyday, and my skin has never looked this good. I get complimented. COMPLIMENTED and I am a teenager, I am suppose to be exploding in acne; exploding so bad that my only option is to take anti-acne medication. But due to some splendid events (kate somerville products) I am the teenager who has radiant skin without the use of anti-acne medication. My secret you ask... Kate Somerville.

    • This is far better than drug store products; clearsil, oxy10,etc. I have used all kinds of acne care products, I have suffered with adult acne time to time.
      I thought this product is pricy but I gave a try. I love this one. I use this product after KS clarifying treatment toner. I made my son use this product as well. He is only 11 yrs. old and had pimples on his cheek. Now pimples are gone. My son's skin is very sensitive but this product does not turn his skin red. It only cures acne.
      If you have teenagers who have acne, do try this with the toner.

    • So far I am loving this treatment. I actually use it on the back of my neck, as I have been getting annoying breakouts. I found that other stuff did not help (maybe because the skin is thicker) but this works great! I started with morning and night application - tho I think I will only apply at night now as it will bleach your clothing. Wish they could make it so it wouldn't do that ... otherwise it is great!

    • I have a weird type of cystic acne where its a few dozens of flesh colored bumps all over my forehead and i would always be prone to breakouts when stressed during Med School. Ever Since I used the antibacterial lotion among with the rest of the acne line, my skin is completely clear and radiant. I have tried everything and kate somerville is the only line that works. This lotion can be drying so make sure u the oil free moisturizer. But the antibacterial lotion was referred by my makeup artist who saw my skin really congested, and i thank her everyday for referring kate sommerville to me.

    • 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!

    • 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!

    • 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!!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • I use this every other day in combination with the retinol product and my skin has never been so clear!!! It got rid of my blackheads and has seriously reduced my pore side. I did not experience any sensitivity or burning either.

    • 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!)

    • 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.

    • 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 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 would recommend trying a sample if you can first, just because of all the ingredients, but I highly recommend it based on my experiences.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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 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.

    • 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!

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • This contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide which sounds intense, but the formula is wonderful and doesn't dry out my skin at all. I usually use this once a day.

    • 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 have been using this product for a year and it works wonderful! I mix it with goat milk moisturizer every night! I was struggling with acne for years and this product saves me from that! No more breakout for me. Once in a while I might have a small one but it went a way pretty fast.

    • Unfortunately, I still experience acne and blackheads in my 20's. Since using this product I have noticed that my acne has subsided. My only drawback - the smell.

    • I use this mostly as a spot treatment because of the higher percentage of Benzoyl Peroxide, and it works wonders!

      I also gave it to my teenage brother who was starting to breakout a on his forehead and nose and I literally saw his skin clear up in just a few days.

      Love this stuff!

    • 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

    • I love this lotion! It helps keep my skin clear without drying me out.

    • 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.

    • I have been using this product over a year and every day my skin looks better and better! It has made my pores TINY and unclogged and no more blackheads! I'm serious. I couldn't live without this product. I use it once or twice a day, and have only had to buy three bottles in a years time so it lasts. It is well, well worth the money!

    • I have been using anti-bac for a year and I won't stop! I use it everyday usually twice a day, and in a years time have only had to buy three bottles, so this stuff lasts! I see a SERIOUS improvement in my pores every day and have only had little hormonal breakouts since using this (which the Kate Somerville treatment toner clears right up!). I never had big pores, but I had clogged pores and blackheads, but not anymore! I am 23 and always on the quest for perfect skin, and this product is such a big help. I don't know what i would do without it! Thank you Kate Somerville!

    • 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.

    • This was suggested to me to help with a breakout. It didn't really work for that, (tho heed w the redness) but I have noticed that a few little bumps have gone away on another area... So for some minor acne concerns, this works great (which of course is what it is marketed for as the intended purpose).

      (Posted on 6/1/13) Review by Lauren
    • Slightly drying at first but once my skin got used to it and I added another moisturizer with this product and only applied it to where I normally break out as opposed to all over my face, this product really prevented my skin from breaking out and shortened current flare ups. Also my skin is quite sensitive so you don't need a lot o this product whatsoever.

    • This product is a must have. I started seeing a difference in the appearance of my acne after only a few days of use. Now after several weeks my acne is practically gone. I am able to use this product in the morning and when I go to bed without it drying out my skin.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • I don't have a lot of acne but, when I get a pimple, I want it gone ... now. If I use this at night, the pimple is almost always gone the next day. I have my 20-year-old son using it too. It's a product that I always have to have a back-up supply of so I never run out. It lasts a long time, so any concern about price should keep that in mind. Everyone should try this product.

    • 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.

    • I've been using this lotion only in the mornings to keep my skin bacteria free throughout the day. I find it gentle but effective without a chemical smell or harsh feeling for my skin. I found that using it twice a day caused too much drying but two pumps once daily has kept my troubled skin clear and even looking. I love the antibacterial lotion.

    • I was using a drugstore regimen that got rid of my pimples, but dried out my skin and made more shortly afterwards. This was my first Kate Suomerville purchase and its converted me. The active ingredient is effective but not too harsh. I use it once a day to prevent dryness and it prevents breakouts really well. You do need a good mousturizer to go with it, though.

    • I have been using this product for a few months now and I love it. I had been having monthly breakouts and when I changed any product. But since using this treatment I have had very few or quick healing acne. I am trying many more products to help with my Melasma, I am hoping they will be just as effective.

    • I once suffered from continuous breakouts on my chin in the same spot. I use this product daily along with my Kate regimen and have not gotten a breakout there since! However, I often use this product to treat breakouts that are emerging or full on. This product definitely helps prevent/reduce the breakout. Great product!

    • I have hormonal acne on my chin and jawline and Kate Somerville's Anti Bac Clearing lotion has really kept it in check lately. I apply a pea-sized amount on in the evening and the morning underneath the Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer. I would recommend this to people who also have sensitive skin. It did not make my skin burn or itch afterwards. It is fragrance free and I really do love this stuff.

    • 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!

    • This is my new found holy grail product! My major concerns are hormonal breakouts and clogged pores primarily on my chin and jawline. I saw results in as little as 24 hours after using this product. Along with Exfolikate and Peel Pads, these products have improved the texture and overall appearance of my skin. Amazing product!

    • I find that this product is good at preventing breakouts and clearing blackheads, but it does dry out my skin a bit so I don't use it every day. It clears up my smaller pimples, but it doesn't work on my painful zits. It just dries out the surface.

    • 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. Because it has some Benzoyl Peroxide I have noticed that it's discolored some pillows and clothing so beware (true for anything with that ingredient).

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.
