  • 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 oily skin but I don't break out that often (once or twice each month). This worked wonders for me in the beginning. But after a month or two it just stopped working.

A great quick fix for a pimple disaster. It doesn't work under makeup, but as an overnight treatment it really helps bring the swelling and redness to a manageable point.

This product does exactly what it says it will. Apply to your blemish or breakout and within a few hours you will see improvement. This is the only spot corrector I use.

After finishing an entire tube of this product, I can say that it did not work for me. I tried applying it more frequently, but that did no seem to change the results.

This product just works. It may not immediately resolve all break outs, but it definitely helps. It doesn't sting too badly and I've actually come to like the smell...

Works well on its own or with the other clean and clear products. I use several of the clean and clear products and my face is clear for the first time in a long time.

It smells wonderful! It didn't dry me out and I have sensitive skin so that's saying something. Applies clear and easily. I love this product. I used it as spot treatment and saw an improvement day one.

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?
