I have oily-combination skin, and while I rarely get breakouts/acne now, for a really long time I had been plagued with severe acne breakouts.  I never did figure out what caused them - probably a combination of stress, bad diet, and using the wrong skincare products - but when I did finally go to a dermatologist, I was recommended a benzoyl peroxide containing ointment which did nothing for the acne but left horrid dry patches on my skin.  It was almost like someone sat and drew circles around all the acne to make them more noticeable from outer space!  It took topical antibiotics to finally get the acne under control, and I still have quite a few blemishes on my skin to remind me of those breakouts.  Needless to say, I have also been left with a severe distrust of any kind of acne treatment product (as well as most dermatologists).  The rare pimple that I do get now I tend to let heal on its own, but it takes a long time and invariably leaves behind marks that seem to take even longer to fade away, so when I read up on the Nerd Skincare Acne Treatment Lotion (benzoyl peroxide free) which is a spot treatment for acne, I was willing to give it a try.  Scroll on to read more.

Nerd Skincare Acne Spot Treatment Lotion - How to Use - Review
Nerd Skincare Acne Treatment Lotion
The product is a clear, water-like liquid, and it comes packaged in a bottle with a dropper to dispense the product. 
To use, I place a drop or two of the lotion on to the back of my hand and dab the product on to the skin with my fingers. Wait for the product to absorb into skin, then follow with my regular skincare.

Nerd Skincare Acne Treatment Lotion relies on sulfur to help with healing the acne, and this also contains ingredients that encourage the growth of the "good" microorganisms naturally present on our skin and which help combat acne-causing bacteria.  This lotion is a clear, water-like product with no particular smell to it.  It feels and looks just like water.  To use, pat some of this lotion on to the area with acne (after cleaning the face, and I use this before my other skincare products).  It isn't really visible on the skin, dries clear, and leaves no residue behind.  I have not had any irritation with this product, and neither did it dry my skin or cause any inflammation, though of course, it's best to test it out on the skin before using to make sure there are no reactions to the product.  Anyway, I have tried this out a couple of times on some small acne that were just starting out, and it calmed the redness associated with the breakout, and the acne disappeared in a day or two without leaving behind any hyperpigmented marks.  Overall, I am pretty happy with this spot treatment acne lotion, but I have very minor breakouts and I cannot be certain if this would be equally effective for someone with more serious acne issues.

Nerd Skincare Acne Treatment Lotion is an interesting product in that it combines the acne-fighting power of sulfur with ingredients that promote the skin's friendly bacteria and which in turn help combat pimple-causing bacteria.  For me, the advantages with using this product have been the lack of any discernible smell to it, it doesn't leave behind any visible residue on the skin so I can use it whenever I want, and that it does not cause dry patches on my skin.  While I do not have major acne breakouts, I have tried this out on smaller breakouts and found it effective at soothing redness, and my pimples did calm down without leaving any marks.  Overall quite effective with my milder/occasional acne breakouts, helping with faster healing without leaving behind hyperpigmented marks.

Despite my not very favorable experience with dermatologists, I still believe that it's best to seek the advice of one (a good one) before using any skin treatments, especially if you have serious acne issues.
