  • 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:

This is amazing for MASSIVE spots, reducing the size dramatically overnight. But if you have sensitive skin it will make it quite red so make sure you splash your face with cold water after use. It does irritate your skin for 10 minutes. It does burn, but it's worth it. Another thing to add is that it is not invisible. It makes your spot shiny and if you add enough, it will cause these odd white patches which is the spot gel sinking into your skin. I wouldn't wear this under makeup. Also, it peels off your face so if you're going to go out without washing it off your face then make sure you don't have any white peelings on your face. It also smells sweet, yet solvent-y. It does work, but you do have to work your way around the redness and the fact that it looks obviously there. That's not that much of a price to pay for clear skin. I have also noticed that the gel causes whiteheads to form prematurely. So if you need to go out spot-free in a couple of days, why don't you put this on every four hours, wash and done your face 3 times a day and apply this straight after. This is what I'm doing and my spots seem to be almost gone!

Just started using this a week ago and it has shown some great results. It dried out the spots very quickly and it’s very promising to what it says.

Highly recommend this product since it’s easy to use/apply and you can even put this on top of your make up

This spot treatment works great. I put it on the first sign of a pimple and by end of day the bump and redness had gone down. When I use it after having a breakout it cuts the healing time in half. I definitely recommend this product to friends and family.

Definitely a great spot treatment! I have not found a spot treatment that dissipates my acne over night, but this definitely reduces the size of the blemishes and is clear so you can wear it all day! The tube lasts forever and I will always have it on hand

I have been using the acne spot treatment for the past five years now and it is very effective. A little goes a long way with this product you don’t need to use the lot since it is a spot treatment. It really did help with my acne spots and it still does!

I swear by this product. It is great for spot fixing pimples that appear overnight. Within a few hours with the cream on, the spot is visibly reduced, less inflamed, and less pigmented. Very cheap option, but extremely effective. Would highly recommend.

I bought one of these to get rid of a pimple fast. It did work great but left my skin red and itchy for a couple of days. I would use it again just because it worked so quick but I definitely wouldn’t use it without having foundation to cover up the redness

Absolutely gets rid of every last stubborn spot. No matter the size this product will zap it overnight. It’s very harsh and drying but it does what it’s meant to do

Most of the time this product will effectively reduce the size of my spots over three hours, making them less painful. Sits well under makeup but can cause dry patches if too much is applied. Would recommend.

This product is great for fresh acne spots, once applied the spot dries out almost instantly and kills the bacteria around it to prevent spreading the bacteria. However their is not a lot of product for the price you pay. Overall a decent 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?
