  • 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:

This stuff works like a charm! I put on my spots at night go to bed and they are almost non existent. Good price not to expensive seems to be gentle thus far this is a recent buy for me...

This works great by reducing the appearance of my spots that pop up randomly . The redness goes away , the spots are barely noticeable after 5 hours of applying it .

I have been using this gel for around 10 years and it remains my go to pimple/acne gel! Apply at night (just a small dab) and it helps to get rid of spots in 1-2 days.

It's an okay product. Honestly this product causes a small burning sensation which I strongly dislike but it did help reduce a little bit of my acne so it does work. It's just not for me.

This did clear my acne up but for spots it kinda built up and made it look worse than it was. but then if I just used a harsh scrub it got rid of all the build up...

This is the best blemish treatment I have tried. I apply this to my blemishes at night and by the morning, my blemishes are gone. The price is very affordable and is a great product compared to other high end products.

This stuff is amazing! I have been using it for years. When I notice a spot on my face I will put this stuff on it before I go to bed and when I wake up it's noticeably smaller. Completely happy with the product and will never use anything other than this!

This is my absolute favorite spot treatment. It definitely stings a lot on application but it zaps away acne quickly. I can't use this every night, or else my skin will get used to it. But every few weeks, treating a spot with this clears it up right away.

Not good for sensitive skin. Has a very strong smell and even burns a little when you first put it on. Overall the product works, but you’ll have to endure a little discomfort.

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?
