  • 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.

Kinda burns the skin, but does the trick sometimes. It can dry out the skin around your spot you’re treating.

Fairly drying but works for superficial zits. I wouldn’t recommend it for deeper swollen zits. Fair price.

I didn’t see a change in my acne. It didn’t do anything for my skin. I wouldn’t recommend for teenage acne

I love using this as a spot treatment, I just apply a little on the affected area and it gets the job done

I broke out the first time I tried this product. It’s super harsh and I would not recommend this to anyone.

This treatment was wonderful for the emergent spots that would pop up on my face. A little goes a long way!

I’m not convinced this stuff does anything tbh. I’ve used it for years and I don’t know that it helps much.

I sometimes get bad pimples on my face whenever i'm about to have my period, and even though covering it with concealer and foundation doesn't work. Would it still work for PMS pimples?

Do you guys use this alone? It dries me out so I pair it with the Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer stuff to keep my skin nice!
