  • 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:

I've been using this product for years! I just put it on at night where I have a pimple or I feel like I need it and usually by the morning it's gone or it's at least reduced the redness or irritability.

Dries individual acne overnight to rid pimples. Is very effective. My only complaint is that it does burn when initially applied. Did not bother me but it may if you are not accustomed to that sensation.

I have tried a lot of acne treatments but this is one of the worst ones. It does not work the way it says it does. If you put it at night, it will burn the spot you put it and wont take off the breakout

I first tried this product in a set and I love it. It does a great job of drying out my pimples. It's has a tingle to it on fresh washed face. It takes few applications to really dry it out but it works

This is actually a realllllly good drugstore acne treatment. Can be a little drying but really does work well as on overnight spot treatment for pesky breakouts! Inexpensive and easy to find at a lot of stores.

I use this product after I was my face in the morning and I put it on my acne. I do believe it works well but it takes some time for the product to start kicking in, probably because your skin has to adjust to it. But it does work great!

I really love this product and it really works for my skin. I just need to apply at night before sleep and in the next day is much better. I would say it takes 2-3 days to be completely done. The price is great and it lasts a long time.

Very effective for spot treatment. I only ran into an issue with how dry it made my skin but still did what it said it would do. I would recommend it to people who need a cheap spot treatment but to be careful with drying out your skin!

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?
