My holy grail. This helps so much when i have a raw pimple. It makes it go away overnight. I like that it is clear so I can use it on day i wear no makeup too. Caution: over use can be drying on skin

Been using this product for a good two years now and it clears all my acne. Until that time of the month comes and a bunch of them pop up but the the product gets rid of them so I would recommend this to my two best friends.

I bought this on a whim, and didn't care for it too much. I didn't notice a dramatic result of helping the acne. The applicator does make it easy to apply only a small amount.

I have just started using this. I'm still not 100% sure if I love it. It does seem to take the redness away. I think it might be too soon to tell if it truly gets rid of them.

This literally cleared up my skin within 2 days. I had such huge pimples traditionally never had a problem with them but as I got older my hormones kicked in and I began seeing gross zits and I freaked out I tried everything and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING and this and the kit acne clean and clear with the cleanser and moisturizer cleared up my skin soooo much! if you have trouble with your skin I recommend it I was recommended this by my doctor I bought it at walmart and I've seen in at rite aid. This helps you get rid of your pimples check it out

I have used this product for about 10 years. I love this product. And continue to use it. It has always worked very good on the first day or so the pimple is fine. And I will continue to buy this.

This product is great for acne. It's the perfect spot treatment. The only downfall is it really dries your face out. You have to be sure to moisturize well when using this.

This acne spot treatment product is actually incredible. I have been using this for over two years now, and I still have a tough time believing how effective it is. I just place a spot of the gel onto my finger, and dab it onto the infected area of my skin. Make sure you do not spread it around your entire face, because it is only meant for pimples and blemishes - it can make non infected areas of your skin become dry and flakey, because the product is meant to dry out the blemishes of your face and make them disappear. Sometimes, I see complete results in just a few short hours, depending on how quick take care of the blemish. I recommend this product to everyone, it is a great product for getting rid of blemishes as QUICK and EASY as possible!

Great product that I've used for years on acne that pops up over night that shows actual results within 12-24 hours. A little goes a long way without an over powering smell

I love this product for the everyday types of blemishes. After I apply my moisturizer I apply this to my cheeks and chin. It helps keep the pimples away when I use it religiously.

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?
