  • 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.

My go to acne treatment! This is so affordable for what it does. Anytime I start to feel a blemish coming on I put this on at night and it is usually gone by the morning. It is lightweight and absorbs quickly.

This acne spot treatment is a must have!! Amazing value for its price! Less than $10 and works better than high end treatments! Apply this to a pimple and it will be gone in a very short amount of time!

I really enjoy this product. After buying so many things to try to help my acne, this is one product I would suggest to anyone and everyone. I noticed my pimples minimizing within a short amount of time without making my skin oily too!

I can’t say I completely loved this product because it’s nothing you want to put under makeup because it seriously rubs off pretty easily. It is a good price but I can’t say it was completely worth it.

This product works great. If you have a pimple you put a little bit of this overnight and in the morning it will be visible that it shrank a little. The only problem I’ve ever had with this is that it left a scar of my pimple. Although, I’ve been using it for a long time and that was the only time it happened so it’s still good.

Use this whenever I have a pimple pop up. I really believe it makes it go down in just one day. I put it on at night. And it lasts you a long time. I recommend this product 100%. Not too harsh on skin.

Totally in love with this acne scar remover. If you have an acne scar just dab a little on the spot overnight and boom its gone or faded. This has worked amazing for me and I reccomend it to everyone!!

I really don’t like this product. I feel like it doesn’t work for me personally. The product just kind of sits on the surface of my skin. I know people who do have good luck with this product but I did not so I wouldn’t recommend.

This is a product I would usually keep in my purse or makeup bag. It’s an essential and an emergency item. I’m gonna say it’s not my favorite but I can always see some kind of difference when I use this

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?
