  • 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:

My daughter used this and saw no improvement at all in her acne. Perhaps as part of a system it would work better? We will not be purchasing again.

I always use the product when I have a large pimple or a break out. I feel like this product has been much better than the other ones I have tried.

This is a pretty good value product for spot treatment of acne. It's good because you put it on the zit so it won't dry out the rest of your face.

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?
