  • 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.

Barely works, I used it for two weeks on a spot and it did not disappear. I use sudocrem for 3 days and my spot goes! Nice squeeze tube although sometimes can squeeze way too much out. Would not really recommend

This product was okay definitely not my favourite. It’s not necessarily bad it just didn’t work or help my skin I tried it for about 2-3 weeks and it didn’t help my skin at all. I probably wouldn’t buy it again

After I used this my skin felt so smooth and I really like the smell. Within 9-10 hours my skin was completely clear. I’m sure anyone can learn how to use this because it’s simple and it is on the packaging.

This acne spot treatment is an a product I won't re-rurchase, It did'nt really do any thing for my acne and I have try other product I like much better and work for my skin.

If this is used religiously during a breakdown it has brilliant effects. Three applications in one day and my breakout is next to gone. Definitely requires multiple uses to work efficiently.

Great for those little spots that pop up. I found this product would clear them up within a day or so. Would be able to use this product then apply makeup and the spot would be hidden until it cleared away.

Lovely product! I always spot treat because my acne lies in my tzone area and I get a few during specific times of the year. I can always count on this to clear them up quickly.

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?
