  • 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!

This product is great for reducing those last minute breakouts. Just put a little bit of the product on the area and it will do the rest. This product is extremely effective and reasonably priced while lasting a long time. Would definitely recommend!

I love Clean & Clear Acne Spot Treatment. Have you ever woken up for school or an important day and had annoying acne on your face? This happens to me all the time! When I came across acne spot treatment, I was a little skeptical but it truly does wonders and fast!

My face didn’t approve at all after using this product consistently. The price isn’t worth what you get out of it.

I've been using this acne product for a while now just in case I get a pop up blemish/pimpl. It works really well, and greatly reduced the acne spot within a day!

This stuff just feels like it dries me out and doesn’t do much else. I suffer from more under the skin acne and this doesn’t do much. The smell is a little like rubbing alcohol.

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?
