  • 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!

Good to have on hand if you break out before an event you have to go to.. I recommend using at least 2 days prior. It does the job but must be used consistently. Overall, a mediocre product. Not sure if I’d repurchase though!

Does exactly what it says on the tube - helps calm down pimples within a few hours of application and fully helps them go away within a few days. Amazing, especially when you have a pimple which simply will not go away.

I purchased this product from Walmart and used it a lot as a teenager with acne prone skin. It is gentle which was great because my skin is sensitive. This product is great value and works to get rid of pimples quickly and effectively.

I use the Clean & Clear Acne Spot Treatment whenever a pimple is popped and in about few hours its reduces the redness of the effected area. After a few use of this product it dried out the pimple completely.

not perfect, as it has a very strong alcohol smell. stings when you apply it, especially if you accidently put it on a spot with an open head or a cut on your finger. but it does help with some types of spots. overall would recommend as it’s inexpensive.

Gets rid of my spots so we’ll. it stings the spots a little bit but within a couple of hours they are gone. I love how cheap this is and it’s good value for money. Anyone that’s struggling with acne I would recommend

This product majorly helps me with sudden breakouts, it is useful for overnight use but also just if you notice a spot I place it on before I apply my make up and it reduces the redness and soreness and usually gets rid of a spot within a couple of hours.

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?
