  • 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.

Reduces redness from any blemish in o time what so ever however it did make my skin itchy afterwards. It does exactly what it says on the packaging and was very effective. I would definitely repurchase

Do not buy this product it is minimally effective and not what I thought it was at all I was a first time user and will not buy again as it did not meet my expectations I'd rather save a little more and buy better

I don't normally get acne or anything but when I get a pimple maybe once in a year I pop it and instantly put this on it maybe 2 more times after it dries and in the next day the pimple is gone. It's so crazy I've suggested this to a lot of my friends and even strangers that always ask me about my skin being so clear. Really does work

I actually need to pick up more of this because I stopped using it to give my skin a bit of a break (it does dry things out a little) but my acne came back with a vengeance

This product is so great! I'm a teenager that has been struggling with acne for a few years and this product has changed my skin within a week! Areas where I have had acne for a few years have become smooth and are already clearing up! This product is also great at preventing acne! I put it whenever I feel a bump coming and it works it's magic! This product is such a lifesaver!

I use this on acne spots that pop up from time to time. It normally works pretty well at getting them under control quickly, but maybe once in every 5 spots it does absolutely nothing.

Clean & Clear is the best name this company could have. It's accurate. This product works miracles on my sensitive skin. Whenever I get a breakout, I reach for this. Works fast and well!

It felt great on my face and it did make a little difference on my acne although I wouldn't expect very fast results with the product. In time though it does make a difference.

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?
