  • 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 rate this a five because it really does do the job! Yes you don’t get a lot but it really does work and it’s easy to apply and it’s not noticeable. Also it can cost less I get mine from Morrison’s and it’s only two pounds which is cheap for a really good acne treatment would definitely recommend this!!

Este producto es genial ya que, con solo una aplicación antes de irme a dormir consigue eliminar los pequeños granitos que se encuentran en mi frente. Me parece un producto muy efectivo si se aplica diariamente.

Un problema es que el segundo ingrediente más usado es el alcohol y tiende a resecar la piel.

I like this stuff because it really dries out my acne.

The only downfall is I can't wear any makeup on top of it or else it pills or the gel will roll and the makeup coverage won't be even.

It's quite effective and affordable however I have found something else that works much better for me. Hence don't think I'll be spending my money on this in the future.

I love! It is probably one of the best pimple removers out. All you do is put it on your pimple/s over night or during the day and in less than 24 hours it will be gone or will be smaller and a lot less noticeable.

I use this product whenever i feel a pimple forming, add some of this over night and it dramatically minimises or stops the pimple from forming. Helps reduce redness and any pain that occurs.

not the best if you want to get rid of a pimple quickly, the more you apply it throughout the day, the more the product will work to get rid of the pimple but not the best product I’ve tried

This is so good!! It clears up my acne very well. I find that in just a few days it can significantly take down the swelling. However, be careful about using it for too long because it can dry out the skin around your zit and effectively kill it. Clean & Clear® Advantage® Acne Spot Treatment

I'm not a fan of this product purely because I haven't noticed a difference for the few months that ive been using it. However i could be using it wrong, I use it before i prime my face and after i take my makeup off, I have given up using this product because it slightly irritates my skin also.

To be honest this didn’t do a lot for me it stung a little when I put it on which I think it is ment to do but it didn’t really reduce the appearance of my acne much

I have used this forever and love it so much. It’s one of those products that you can literally FEEL working. This has been a staple in my skin care routine since I started using makeup and skincare products. It is very lightweight and has a thin consistency. Really recommend this product! :)

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?
