  • 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.

It stings and feels like it’s attacking acne but doesn’t seem to work as rapidly or effectively as to her salicylic acid gels I’ve tried in the past

I use this the moment I see a pimple forming. It dries it out. It does burn if I’ve messed with the spot but the pimple is always gone the next day.

I apply a tiny amount over a dark acne spot and in no time the dark spot is gone. Before I apply this I make sure to follow my face cleanse routine.

This stuff really works and clears up a pimple. It’s inexpensive and also this small tube lasts a while because you only have to use a small amount.

I've been using this stuff since I was in high school (graduated 6 years ago) and it's always been amazing. Stops acne in progress and smells great!

Exactly what it says it does! This clears up spots within a few days! I will continue to purchase this item and recommend for others to use as well!

It helps reduce the acne spot. It works fast and efficient. The only down side is that it will dry out that area if you use it for more than 2 days.

I honestly have pretty clear skin yet every now and then a pesky blemish pops up and this dramatically decreases the size and redness within hours.

It works well, it dries out your skin where the pimple is located a little too much. Might wanna use an acne control moisturiser with this product.

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?
