  • 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 have tried almost every product out there and this is by far my favorite. I bought this product in the Acne Control kit and after a few days of using it, I could totally see a difference!

This Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment gel works well. It is my first time using this and it's performance was satisfactory. It met my expectations and I would recommend it to others.

I have bought this product twice before. It worked okay, but I do think there are things out there that may be a little more but work A LOT better! In this case, spending a little extra for something else is worth it.

I would say its an average product. It doesn't delete totally breakouts but if you apply it on time before they actually come out, it may help to dry them, thus making them go away faster.

This is a beauty must have! Put it on overnight on spots and they're gone in the morning. It's gentile on your skin too. Bought it at Walmart for relatively inexpensive and haven't stopped using it since!

This is a staple in my house! I get random pimples all the time and I apply this every 8 hours and depending on the size of the pimple it will be gone in 8 hours! LOVE THIS MIRACLE STUFF!!

This spot treatment works best from everything I've tried the only bad thing is that after I use it for a while I have to stop using it and come back to it because my skin gets used to it.

I truly saw results with this product. At night after I washed my face I would put this on a bump or Pimple that I had and in the morning the little menace would either be shrunken or gone!

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?
