  • 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!

I use this product on my really bad acne areas. It helps to soothe the redness and clear it faster. I use it every night after I wash my face and my acne is reduced the next morning! This product is an acne game changer! And it doesn't dry out my skin!

This product is great. I use it on my acne and random pimples I get. It’s very effective and I have used this product over and over again. It met my expectations, it just burns a bit. But it’s not too bad and I would definetly buy again.

This works well, but don't overuse it! It definitely will dry out the skin around breakouts, so use it selectively and on the spot. It certainly isn't instant, but is great over a couple days on a very targeted area- maybe even use a q-tip or something to apply accurately.

This really helps a ton! My sons face has cleared right up. All you have to do is put a small amount on clean skin on your problem areas. It works wonders and i recommend it.

I can always count on this to knock out a problem pimple in a short amount of time. I tend to get single pimples and this is a great solution that focuses on the one area rather than targeting the whole face like a cleanser or scrub.

This product works overnight. It's like magic! It might sting or burn at first but it goes away fairly quick. It dries the spot and it eventually goes away on its own. I don't recommend using it with other acne products as it works well on its own.

Best spot cream I've used, it doesn't dry skin out and gets rid of spots and redness almost straight away as well as preventing them from forming. works with make-up on too

I love this spot treatment. This is my all time favorite. It has alcohol in it that dries out your pimples fast and easy and painless. This product definitely meets my expectations. I definitely recommend this to people with bad acne.

This is the only spot treatment that I use. I think that it works really good but you do have to catch it before the zit gets to bad if not it won't work as well.

I've never been super acne prone, but in my self-conscious high school days I did use this stuff for my blemishes and it worked! Simply dab a little on your spots at night and they're smaller/improved if not cleared up in the morning!

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?
