  • 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:

I live by this stuff. It stings if it is an open spot but it dries it up over night. I also love that after it dries you can put your make up on over it

I freaking love this! Yes it really clears up any spots over night. The only issue is that it really makes my skin dry. So only put it where you need it.

Worked great for the price! Took about a day to see noticeable improvements. This product didn’t smell too overpowering, and was also worth using again!

Works good. I used on some spots I had and they were cleared up shortly. It's very gentle. I bought it at cvs. It was packaged nicely. I would buy again.

Mostly all clean and clear products help good with acne. This one if you put on specific spots it helps with removing it with constant use.. very gentle

My boyfriend had got this. I don't really brake out that much so I only really used it about two times and it worked that's why I'm giving it four stars.

I have been using this product since high school and it has never disappointed. Does a great job of reducing redness with those pesky unwanted blemishes.

This product is wonderful. I use it every other day (rotating it with a Clean and Clear benzol peroxide cream), and it keeps my acne prone skin in check!

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?
