Some acne treatments promise to get rid of 2/3 of your blemishes in 30 days. One acne treatment system, using five products simultaneously, advertises that 98% of users get rid of 96% of blemishes in 30 days. A few scam products claim they will get rid of acne in at little as three days or even in 24 hours. But Zyporex promises to get rid of acne “instantly.”

All you have to do to use Zyporex is to squirt a little of the liquid on your skin and leave it there for 30 to 60 seconds, later rinsing it away. You use Zyporex when you bathe or shower, at least twice a day. The manufacturer says that a 12.2 oz/366 ml bottle of Zyporex should last three months—really a bargain at just $60 a bottle. And if you buy two or more bottles you can also get a free “12-hour” acne treatment to supplement your instant acne treatment.
For Zyporex to deliver such potent healing it must surely contain some potent ingredients. But does it? The label on the Zyporex bottle reveals that it contains:
Aloe, oatmeal, glycerin, ascorbyl palmitate, retinol, hyalouronic acid, and preservatives.
You can’t argue with the assertion that oatmeal is natural. But did you ever see a baby who played with his or her oatmeal instantly develop beautiful skin. Zyporex contains oatmeal in place of the more commonly used polyethylene beads or corundum crystals. The reason oatmeal isn’t used in many acne scrubs is that it doesn’t work for acne. It can relieve dryness, itchiness2, and chafed skin (from tight undies), however.
Ascorbyl palmitate is a synthetic, chemical form of vitamin C that is well-absorbed by the skin3, provided you don’t rinse it off as soon as you put it on. Retinol is a form of vitamin that can be used by the skin, but it tends to break down quickly in any container that is not tightly sealed and it can’t be absorbed by the skin in just 30 to 60 seconds. Putting either of these vitamins in a skin wash is a waste of product.
There is no good reason to believe that Zyporex will clear up blemished skin instantly. There is not even any good reason to believe that Zyporex will clear up blemished skin slowly.
Washes are usually a very poor way to treat acne-prone skin. The main problem with a wash is that you remove the active ingredients from your skin almost as soon as you put them on. Even when dermatologists and aestheticians treat blemished skin with strong skin peels, they leave them on for 3 to 5 minutes before neutralizing them and rinsing them away.
Even if Zyporex contained some skin-restorative ingredients in useful amounts, which it doesn’t, there is no way they can do any good on your skin if they are washed away in just 30 to 60 seconds. And if you are inclined to stand around in your shower for half an hour just to give them a chance to work, don’t. There’s nothing in Zyporex that heals acne-blemished skin.
If you like the idea of rinsing acne away, there actually are a few products that help—a little. Here is a quick rundown of skin washes that are worth the money.
