  • 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!

This product murders spot acne like no other. If I'm lucky enough to have a couple nights before whatever big event this pimple wants to crash, it'll usually take care of it. However, it's a bit harsh and can sting and/or dry out your skin; go easy on it.

Honestly I was stressed due to having a large outbreak over all my face , trying anything I could find and then this amazing product was introduced to me . This cleaned up my spots over night and it just amazed me honestly ! 100/100 . Trust me on this .

The acne treatment was effective and cleared my pimples up in a few days. It was effective compared to other brands I have used. The packaging wasn't very special but it did it's job. The serum itself wasn't harsh on my skin and I would purchase it again.

Neutral on this product. I have had it for a while for breakouts but I can’t tell if it’s doing the job or not. Sometimes I can tell right away that my blemish has gone down, and sometimes I see nothing happening at all even after continued use. It’s almost like it only works on certain kinds of breakouts?

I really like this gel due to it being light and soothing on the skin. It doesn't make your skin dry like other brands and it's easy to buy. It makes the redness go over night which is amazing. Also it reduces the spots in size too! I would definitely buy it again!

I thought that it was a pretty average acne treatment on my type of skin. I have a pretty dry skin, and I found that it just made it worse. I used it for approximatively four months before deciding that it was not made for me. However, the price is reasonable.

This product gets rid of acne in a flash and is not drying at all. I put it on all my pimples before I put my moisturizer on and voilà! When I wake up they’re gone! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

This is something I'd use if I forgot my acne cleanser at home during a vacation. It's nice anand has a good formula, but it doesn't work for me. My skin doesn't agree with it. Rubbery and slick is not a sensation I like, personally. It's a last minute grab

This is my favourite go to product for when I have a break out. It’s alittle harsh but it works and met all of my expectations ...I bought this at Walmart and it was pretty cheap I don’t think it needs improvement it does exact what it says and helps so much

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?
