Description

  • Anti Bump Solution (formerly named Anti Cyst Treatment) by Renée Rouleau is a powerful spot treatment formulated to provide a quick recovery for reducing visible inflammation of stubborn cystic acne bumps that develop deep within the skin and can linger for weeks—or even months. When used immediately on a newly formed cyst, most will find they get a 50% quicker recovery (if not faster) than when using nothing at all. This revolutionary product has 30+ years of proven results and has completely replaced the need for expensive cortisone injections for many of its users. If you struggle with large, painful blemishes and bumps, this safe and proven acne treatment is definitely for you. The result? Clearer skin with less visible bumps and cysts under the skin. 

    For cyst and bump sufferers, we also highly recommend using Vitamin C&E Treatment daily under sunscreen and Post-Breakout Fading Gel as a spot treatment to fade the dark marks that stubborn cysts can leave behind for weeks or even months to reveal brighter, more even-toned skin. Rapid Response Detox Masque is very effective for preventing the appearance of all types breakouts, including cysts, pustules, papules, and monthly hormonal blemishes. It is included in our Rapid Response Detox Kit. If your breakouts are predominantly on the chin and jawline area, check out our Chin Breakout Treatment Kit

    Note: Cysts should never be picked at since they develop and heal deep within the skin and are not meant to come out the surface. Avoid picking and instead apply Anti Bump Solution. It's a lot easier to conceal a closed bump with makeup than an oozing scab. Read 8 tips for preventing chin and jawline breakouts.

  • How To Use

  • To effectively use Anti Bump Solution to reduce the appearance of cystic acne and blemishes, apply one drop to clean skin as soon as cyst becomes visible. When used in the morning or evening, first perform your regular routine. Next, take a damp tissue or Q-tip and wipe the affected area clean before applying. Anti Bump Solution should be applied as the last step. Use day or night until the bump is no longer visible. This treatment can be effective for older cysts that are still lingering under the skin.

    Works like magic!

    This stuff is amazing. It's perfect for those occcasional under the skin bumps that you can feel beginning to get inflamed. It keeps them from surfacing and a little bit goes a long way. I have ordered 4 bottles now and will continue to repurchase.

    Doesn’t work

    Doesn’t help with my cystic acne. I get better results with benzoyl peroxide.

    Renée Rouleau Skin Care

    Hi Courtney! Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We're sorry that the Anti Bump Solution didn't help your cystic acne as you'd hoped but glad you see results with benzoyl peroxide! As Renée always says, everyone's skin is unique, so while finding the routine that works best for you can be challenging, it's so rewarding when you do! You're still well within the return window if you would like to return this product for a store credit. You can find our complete return policy here > https://www.reneerouleau.com/pages/customer-care-return-policy

    Based on your purchase history and success with the benzoyl peroxide, we suggest giving the Rapid Response Detox Masque or Cleanser a try (the cleanser can be left on for 5 minutes as a mini mask)! Both products will help kill surface bacteria without additional exfoliation, which may dry your skin or damage your moisture barrier.

    Amazing product!!

    This product helped me treat my lingering cystic acne that I suffered with for so many years. Nowadays, whenever I feel a pimple coming through, I apply this product overnight, and the swelling or irritated area will either shrink or disappear! It helps with those small bumps around chin and jaw too. Absolutely recommend this product!!

    The only thing that seems to help cysts

    This product is miraculous. Over time, I've learned that nothing else on the market helps, and I've tried it all. This product helps 80% of the time. I'm not sure why on occasion it doesn't, but I have seen this product make cysts disappear without them ever coming to the surface. It's like magic!
