  • 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.

Good for daily use and for young people acne. Unfortunately after about a month of use my skin got used to it and stopped reacting. Good product until then

This goop killed every little zit on my face without irritating my sensitive skin. I tried the cleanser but I wasn't really a fan but this is golden.

I feel like this product is a little too drying for me for my skin type it tends to leave patches of dry skin that I need to use an exfoliant to get rid of

Dries out my skin a bit but did the job... the only thing is it smells rank! Other than that my pimples completely clear in no more than 3 days using this!

Sometimes this stuff works, sometimes it doesn’t. It did not meet my expectations for how well it worked but the tube of it did definitely last a long time

I tried this product once, along with the cleanser and toner. It really did nothing for my face. I had high hopes for this product, but I was disappointed.

This caused me some irritation and so I had to stop using it. I guess my skin is a little more sensitive than I thought. It works though, just not for me.

This product somewhat works as a spot treatment and doesn't upset my sensitive skin but it does cause the area to peel around where the product was placed.

This little guy is my secret weapon. If I catch a breakout early enough, this spot treatment clears it up within a few days. I just wish it worked faster!

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?
