  • 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.

It worked brilliantly for me I would apply this as soon as the spot made appearance and I would notice it helped to reduce the redness and t wouldn’t be that itchy.
I would recommend this product to others as it helps a lot

purchase this at my local Walmart, was very impressed with the outcome of this product. It has a strong scent but it’s bearable to deal with. A little goes a long way and it is inexpensive while it still works very well and you will see a difference once using it.

I love everything else from clean and clear.. apart from this. To put it bluntly it just does not work for people with spot prone skin. I was extremely disappointed when I tried it out. Might try it again but for now it’s a no no.

It is a good cleanser, washes off the dirts, keeps away pimples or acne, and also the whiteheads which occur due to the accumulation of oil in the pores Clean & Clear® Advantage® Acne Control 3-in-1 Foaming Face Wash

I brought this for real cheap at my local Superdrug store and wasn’t expecting much for its price however it worked like magic for my skin. I apply it on my spots and help a lot. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Life Saver. That's really all I can say with the Clean and Clear Advanting Acne Spot Treatment. Small and compact making it easy to take on-the-go. I found it to be very effective leading to more purchases. Would definitely recommend to others looking for fast results before a nigh out or special occasion.

I put this on before bed - it's a good thick-ish consistency and stays on through the night - unlike some others I've used which tend to rub or peel off almost like eraser rubbings. It definitely makes me spots less red and decreases their size overnight. Stings a little so feels like it's doing something too.

Works for me sometimes. Tends to be drying so don't forget to apply moisturize and sun protection since it will make your skin UV sensitive. It was quite affordable on sale at the drug store for the amount of product you get. Will maybe buy again since when used with tea tree oil it can get rid of most acne.

This stuff has saved my life so many times. I apply some at night on my acne, and when I wake up my bad spots noticeably shrink. This product isn’t too harsh either, which means a lot since my skin is on the drier side.

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?
