  • 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!

I am giving this product 3 stars because it did work, but it made my skin terribly dry. I have horrible combination skin so at one point in can be oily, the next dry and this made it terribly more dry.

Along aide using a good face waah, this helps keep any new ones forming from getting too put of control. I usually put this stuff on at night so it has more of a chance to soak in and do its job.

This is okay. I love the packaging and nozzle but the actual product needs work. It did its job, shrinking and drying acne. However, in that process, it dries out surrounding skin leaving flaky dry spots, even after moisturizing

The product is marketed as a spot treatment, but I've never noticed an improvement in that regard. With blackheads, however, it's a charm. I've bought this product multiple times, for years now.

It only takes a day to see your zit clear up, but it takes a week to make it go away completely. It leaves a clear gel layer on top of my zit so I can wear it all day without anyone noticing it.

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?
