  • 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:

  • Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.

I found that this product would clear up acne. However, it did not clear up acne as soon as I hoped it would. I ohms to tell if my normal skin care routine cleared it up or this treatment did. But everyone has different skin, so my opinion is just what I encountered.

I love this product. It really does get rid of/ minimizes the pimple over night. I like to apply this over a clean and moisturized face at night. It is gentle enough for your skin, but harsh on the pimple. A little goes a long way! I would recommend this to others.

This is my go-to acne spot treatment. It's affordable, doesn't dry out my skin and works to clear up spots within a few days. The best part is, since it goes on clear, I can keep a tube in my purse and apply during the day as soon as I feel a blemish coming on.

This guy is my go to pimple eraser! It does wonders let me tell you! The second I feel a bad one coming in I slap this on and I take control of my face! The best thing is that a thin layer does so much and it's honestly very light on the skin. Not to mention you can put it on 3 times a day (even though once a day does wonders for me).

This stuff works so well as long as you don't have cystic acne. It is the perfect spot treatment that doesn't dry out the rest of your skin or break you out even more. This is what I recommend to the rest of my friends who struggle with acne so definitely give this a try if you are looking for a spot treatment.

I only if use this in those occasions when you really need a big one to go away pretty fast. By the next morning I'm pretty good to go. It says what it does and what it it says it actually do

I have used this for about 6 years. After I had my son I started to have bouts of acne. This stuff works great, I would use it after I took a shower at night and when I got up in the morning I could tell the difference. Would definitely recommend this to people!

I love this stuff. I have really sensitive skin so something that works well without side effects on my skin is great. I keep this stuff near my bed at night so I can put it on before bed. It almost always gets rid of a blemish in one night. If not one night then two.

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?
