  • 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

  • So wash your face then apply a thin layer over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

This spot treatment really works. It does have salicylic acid in it, but this treatment works like a charm:) I am seriously satisfied with this product but I wouldn't call this one of my holy grails.

This product helped my acne so much. I put it on old pimples, new pimples, pimples I feel coming & it takes care of it all. It does not dry out my skin at all. I've gone thru so many tubes & I don't think I'll ever stop purchasing it.

This is honestly so good with my face.... it leaves my skin so soft and fresh. I recommend to people who suffer with spots 100%. It's small but lasts a long time!!

I use this every night and I've repurchased it countless times. It doesn't dry out my skin but still gets rid of any blemishes I have. The only downside is you don't get too much in the little tube.

This product helped clear up my acne. You apply it to the bad spots at night and by the morning it should be smaller if not gone. Don't put it where your skins clear because it will dry your skin out

This is my Secret weapon for curing it honey, just a little dab and you could even smell the alcohol. It works so well. Somewhat harsh but at the same time gentle perfect for a spot treatment. I've bought this several times

I use this from time to time of course with my daily face regimen and it seems to help. I cannot say that it does the job, but it does help relieve bumps and redness faster than healing by themselves.

I really like this spot treatment it works fast. If I have a spot come up this is the first thing I go to for a quick fix. It works magic and gets spots to go away quicker than anything else I have tried. It is also fairly inexpensive.

This stuff is great! I used to use it all the time when I had really bad breakouts. I would literally put it on before bed and the next morning the pimple would shrink and also not look as red amazing!

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?
