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.

    It works!

    Been using this for YEARS and it’s a miracle. The whole family uses it. My husband even has me ordering it for him. We get these deep underground zits in my whole family and this is a miracle worker. I even sometimes use it as a serum all over my face, chest to keep everything clear. Never change this formula! I only wish they nade a bigger size.

    Wish it worked for Me

    After 2 bottles and over 3 months with using this religiously-with the detox mask and cleanser my skin did not improve. I even changed up most of my lifestyle changes to see what the root cause was with flare ups but this didn't even help lower a soon to be cyst/nodular/pimple coming. I wish it worked for me, so far only the AHA/BHA cleanser has been my go to out of all the products i've purchaed.

    Hey Lana! Thank you for your review! While this product is our #1 best seller, there is a small percentage of people it does not perform miracles for. We're so sorry it wasn't a match!

    Holy grail product

    I have used this for years. Many years ago I would get cystic lesions on my face. I would have to go to my derm for a injection of hydrocortisone, hurt badly too! I read a editorial in Vogue, the editor was saying she had basically what I had but had not experienced a cystic lesion since using the then called anti-cyst serum. I thought ,what have I got to lose? I have not had one since I started using this product. I buy in bulk because I never want to be without it. I have now built up quite a stash of this stellar product,lol because I never have a cystic lesion! However, I do use it for any bump, pimple on my body. This is one of those "you have to know about it cult classics". It is a ROCKSTAR PRODUCT! You will be so very happyw/ this product if you get cystic lesions, you know the kind that never comes to a head, it throbs swells, is red & you can tell it is deep. You swear it is its own entity & is trying to ruin your life, LOL Just awful! This product has set me free & I have no reason to think it wouldn't do the same for you. I will say if you have cystic acne vs getting cystic lesions 1-2x a month, I would consult w/ a RR esthetician & use the entire system recommended along w/ this product. They are the experts though❣️I use other RR products too. I also will not be without the moisture infusion toner❣️

    Renée Rouleau Skin Care

    Hi Carly! Thank you for your review! We are very sorry to hear the Anti Bump Solution did not help your breakouts. Because this product is specifically formulated for cystic acne (those red, sometimes sore, under the skin blemishes), it may not be a fit for all breakouts. If pustular blemishes are a concern, we'd recommend giving the Nighttime Spot Lotion a try! We also have a variety of products outside of spot treatments to address skin concerns/issues.

    One-Of-A-Kind Product

    I've had difficult skin and cystic acne for years, and a couple of years ago I read about Renee Rouleau's Anti Bump Solution in a Real Simple magazine. With all the acne treatments I'd previously tried I'd never heard of one that claimed to target cystic acne. After reading up on the brand I was excited to try it because it seemed to address everything that I'd found other brands lacking in. I now have several Renee Rouleau products in my skincare regimen but if I could only use one it would be the Anti Bump Solution. It WORKS! I use it morning and night on every potential blemish on my face, following the instructions, and sometimes body acne as well. If I run out my acne immediately start to gain the upper hand, whereas daily application of this miracle in a bottle either makes painful spots subside or heals regular surface acne that I've popped. I love the blog too, excellent "skinformation"!
