  • The second you put it on, the powerful gel with breakthrough technology starts to dissolve surface oil on the skin.
  • With oil out of the way the clinically proven acne medicine can then penetrate pores.
  • The medication starts to clear pimples immediately, with maximum strength 2% Salicylic acid.
  • Pimples are reduced in size, swelling and redness, and the formula won’t over-dry your skin.
  • Voila! Pimple looks better. Now get out there and have some fun!

Recomended for:

Skin Need: Oil, Pimples


  • Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.
  • So wash your face then apply a thin layer over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

The product worked well to reduce inflammation and pain of the breakout spot. Ultimately it did work, however my only issue was it made my face itch terribly and seemed to really dry out not just the spot but the surrounding area. The itching and dryness went away within a day or so though and it def did help the breakout .

This product really works. I use it at night when i see a pimple forming and it is gone by the next morning. One thing to be aware of is if the skin is broken open or you have sensitive skin it will sting a little bit nothing too serious.

ugh..does nothing for my teen son's acne. I thought maybe he just wasnt following directions when he said it wasnt working, after 3 weeks. So I started doing it for him.It was terrible. It caused such skin irritation, and he doesnt have sensitive skin.

I really enjoy this salicylic acid acne spot treatment. I don't actually agree with drying out your pimples because they won't heal properly but I always this in case I have an event to go to and want to kill a pesky pimple. Great stuff

If u want something that you can use and get rid of acne bumps you can put this on just once and It will reduce the size by 50% and it is not as red it does burn a little but that goes away after a few seconds and don’t use an excessive amount because then it will burn your skin

I love this spot treatment. I would purchase this product again. It works fast to get rid of an acne spot. The product is easy to travel with. It’s also affordable. It has helped my acne so much. It may work better for some than others.

this worked really well but a little goes a long way and it is a bit pricey. my routine was applying it overnight to certain affected areas and waiting on results which came in about 1-2 weeks but i guess that mainly depends on your skin

I was never a big fan of spot treatments because pimples come up all over the place but this one actually does work normally I apply it and then spread it around a little bit so it captures most of my skin so I use it more as a full coverage treatment but it does work very well

I know you can use this as a spot treatment and just dab it on the pimples, but can you put a thin layer all over your face to prevent new ones from appearing?
