  • 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.

I really liked this product. I would apply this before going to bed over breakouts and it would treat the breakout overnight. For me, it was effective and helped minimize breakouts. I would definitely recommend!

I love the spot treatment! It makes the whole acne process feel a little easier. Cheaper than most spot treatments I’ve used and more effective too. I’m a big fan of clean & clear!

I've tried the spot treatment from Clean & Clear, but it didn't really work well for my skin.  The price was good, the product is a nice small size and easy to carry, and felt nice on my skin.  I didn't really get results, but it could just be my skin.

Over all I’d say this product does help clear up spots. However I don’t believe it clears it up immediately as most people think that it would. I honestly wasn’t all that impressed with it but I’m sure it doesn’t hurt to try on stubborn spots

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?
