  • 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 used this product as a spot treatment and I was under the impression that it would noticeably reduce redness and size in a short time. I did not see a big difference and after a few applications I noticed it start to dry my skin.

This did not do much for the break out that I had on my face. There was no noticeable change in the size or redness of the pimple. I also found that it dried out the area around the pimple making the blemish actually look worse.

Works well for a spot treatment. Kind of slippery texture, which I find is a little weird to get onto the spot, but once it is in place it doesn't budge and does the job.

I love this spot treatment anytime I have a breakout I just came it on constantly and it makes me feel like it starts to go down instantly and within days my pimple is gone! I would so recommend this to anyone who needs the help!

This product doesn't work for my oily, breakout prone skin. I find salycylic acid products to just make my acne worse. Try a spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide instead. It works as an antibiotic and is much, much more effective.

I used this every night before I went to bed. It shrunk pimples a little, but not much. It always dried out my skin, which I expected, but it also made my skin really red, irritated, and itchy. I don't think it was strong enough to get rid of any acne, but it had something that really irritated my skin. Other products with similar Salicylic acid content have worked much better.

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?
