  • 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.

This works pretty well for me, I know a lot of people it works for. It did meet my expectations, nice packaging, not sure where it was bought because it was a gift. I will buy this product again when I run out.

This spot treatment works well! It's effective and doesn't seem to make acne last longer like some others. It's affordable too! I would definitely re buy it and recommend it to anyone who has problems with acne

If you've got acne, thus would be your best friend. I apply a small amount over the acne at night time and the next day the redness is gone and the pimple is barely noticeable!

Did not work on me. I read so many reviews of people saying it worked but for me it did nothing. I am very disappointed cause i have some scars i wanted to get rid of. I wouldn’t buy it again because obviously.

Works well, will apply to when I feel a spot coming on my face. Reasonably priced and not too harsh, it does make my skin dry, however that’s because I have dry skin. Need a good moisturiser to apply afterwards

Has been the only thing I use and despite how strong it can smell, it is very effective and decreasing acne and inflation around the face, good for controlling breakouts and would definitely recommend if you want something effective and cheap !

I would rate 3/5.. i didn't feel the product that effective than the other brands i have used.even though it reduces the size of pimple in one day, it does not help in the complete removal acne from the skin.

Good for spot treatments when you have a little pimple or something of that sort! Don't use this product often but when I do it tends to work in a fast acting past! Good for those that may only get a pimple once in a while !

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?
