  • 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 do like the size of this product. You get a generous amount. I like the smell of the product and how it feels on my face. Doesn't dry out skin and doesn't leave behind a residue. Honestly though this product did not work for me at all. I have used it many times and every time it does nothing. I was hoping this could be my new HG. I was disappointed in this and will not repurchase.

I wouldn’t recommend this spot treatment if you have lots of acne because it doesn’t do much for mine compared to witch hazel which is really good Clean & Clear® Advantage® Acne Spot Treatment

This gel is absolutely amazing, it allows me to not have to worry about having to cover up any acne that pops up during the day.  I just apply this treatment before bed (as it does leave your skin shiny) and by morning, the blemish is either completely gone or much less noticeable.  I love this product so much and will always continue using it.  It is a life saver!!

I've been using this products for longer than i can remember but I can honestly say it works! Whenever I get a blemish, I apply the product and it defiantly reduces pain and speeds up the time it takes for spots to leave your face so you can continue looking flawless! Honestly if you are a teenager or any age I urge you to get this it is an amazing product and would recommend!!

Used the spot treatment for years, helps to reduce the effects of acne but never could quite get rid of pimples. Definitely meant to be used as part as of a regime and not on it’s own, overall would use again.

Amazing. Dried out particularly bad spots practically overnight. I wouldn't recommend using underneath makeup though. I first saw this on Carli Bybels YouTube channel. Her skin is amazing!!

Could have been better, it just dried out my skin and actually made it a little redder. I found leaving pimples without the spot treatment actually worked better for me. Wasn't too harsh though.

Perfect for spot on treatment for a spot. This helps reduce redness and size of spot with very visible affects. You can buy this at most supermarkets and drug stores for a very reasonable price!

This is a handy little product! I’ve been using this since like high school to spot treat my acne. I guess I’ve been lucky in the sense that I don’t really have any acne issues but when those random ones do pop - this is my go to. If you just dab a little on and leave it overnight, the next day you are good to go! It usually sucks everything out and leaves you fresh and not red!

I love this spot treatment when I desperately need to get rid of a breakout fast. It reduces the size and redness of a spot within only a couple of hours. When I leave this on overnight, my skin is often clear by the morning!

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?
