  • 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 used to get prescribed acne creams but I was too lazy to see my dr. and decided to give this a try. It did not work on my pimples. I ended up getting a bad red spot on the area where it was applied - dried out my skin but not the pimple. Not buying this again.

I find this didnt really help my skin at all and would leave my skin kind of sticky afterwards. I never bothered to touch it after i noticed no change because i hated my skin feeling so sticky.

Tried this out before a wedding in the spring. Tough to say if it worked or not as the zit cleared up fairly quick after applying it but I would totally use it again if the need arises!

Clean & Clear products are always hit and miss for me, and this one was a miss. While it dried up a breakout spot, I don't find it did any improvement overall, and actually dried it out too much. This might be good for someone with oily skin and few breakouts.

This is a miracle worker. It's works great however be aware that any spots will get worse before they get better so put it on in the evening so it can work overnight. It is in a small package but you don't need a lot and it lasts.

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?
