  • 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:

Skin Need: Oil, Pimples


  • Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.
  • So wash your face then apply a thin layer over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.
  • If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day.

I highly recommend clean & clear products for acne. They are super affordable and can be bought anywhere and they really do work. I’m not a huge fan of wasting money on things that I don’t know will work or not and I’m sure your not either!

I really like this for emergencies when I get a pimple the night before something. Otherwise I tend to skip it. It reduces the redness and size of a pimple but with my sensitive skin it dries it out so badly!

I only use clean & clear products for my face. I've been using this product for about 4 years now. It works wonderful. I mainly use it at night. By morning the zit is either gone or has gone down considerably.

This product worked amazingly for me a couple of months ago. But now that my skin had changed and got even more stubborn with more acne, it just made my face oilier and clogged my pores. For others it might work fantastically but for stubborn, oily, acne-prone skin I would not recommend.

When I first got this product it worked within a few days but eventually it just wasn't as fast as I would've liked it to be. It's an alright treatment but it doesn't stand a chance next to my 100% tea tree oil

This treatment just didn't work for me. I used it on breakouts, following directions and it didn't clear my skin any faster than it would've normally. I have oily, acne prone skin if it makes a difference.

I used to always use this acne gel for spot treatment. I'm not sure if this actually makes it go away as fast as it says but I do think it helps a little bit. I would probably skip buying it and purchase something better

Unfortunately this product did not do anything for my occasional breakouts. I did not notice any reduced redness or pimple size. I would not recommend this treatment. If you are looking for one, I would say go with the Neutrogena 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment, it does wonders for me!

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?
