  • 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 all time when I breakout and it works wonders! It can be a little drying so I recommend using a good facial lotion every day when you’re using this.

One and only acne medicine that I ever use, when I say you will see a big difference the next day I'm telling you it is so good and the price you can not beat

I didn’t feel this product was right for me and I saw no improvement in my skin. When applied to pimples though it didn’t burn too bad so that was a plus side

Love this, I feel like it really works at the big deep under the skin pimples when the pop up. Helps prevent them from getting bigger and then gets rid of them

Pretty standard, I've bought it multiple times. Not the best ever but works well. It absolutely does what it's supposed to do, that's the bottom line, really.

I had high hopes for this. Unfortunately it didn't meet my expectations. I didn't really notice a difference in my skin at all even after a couple weeks of use

I have dry skin that is prone to acne. I like this product when I start getting acne and wear it only before bed as it leaves a white area where it's applied.

I wouldn't say that I seen huge results with using this product. I did notice that it seemed like it helped to make some bumps heal a little faster but not all

I use this product in the morning for acne that I want to hide or treat. The best thing about this product is that it is clear and you can put makeup over it!

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?
