  • 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.

I was not a fan of this product at all. It was extremely harsh when used more than twice a week and would even cause my skin to become raw in spots. It didn't even help to dry out the pimples, it just made the skin very very dry in the area.

I have very sensitive acne prone skin and when researching this product before buying lots of people found this worked for them. However this did not help my skin and i had a bad reaction to this product.

Not a massive fan of this spot cream at all, there’s 100% better products on the market.
I don’t like the tight feeling left on my skin after using it. And I don’t think it minimises spots! Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone!

This spot treatment did nothing for my acne. It did tend to bring down the redness a bit over time, but the size stayed the same and it didn't spear up recovery. I don't think I would try this product again but I normally like this brand.

I have very oily skin and some hormone imbalances, which makes acne a daily issue. This product works for smaller ance, but if you are prone to daily breakouts, I would not recommend it.

This product is my holy grail zit zapper! Its not too harsh on the skin which is great but it gets rid of your acne so quickly without irratating my skin. I like to apply it after moisturizer at bedtime!

This didn't work out as well as I thought it would- it left a dry patch on top of my pimple, and took a couple days longer to "clear" the spot. Probably wouldn't buy again- it's just like putting rubbing alcohol on your face.

I find that this product varies, it works extremely well most times but rarely do I find that it does nothing. I have been buying this product for about 2 years now and recommended it to a few people.

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?
