  • 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!

I think this product is very bad because all it does is creates a layer on top of your spot but it doesn’t clear it away so it’s very disappointing to me also I’m not going to be buying it again

I really enjoy this spot treatment. It helps to reduce the spot but isn’t painful I also really like the texture of the products and how I can wear it comfortably to bed

Works really well on stubborn pimples that are painful and appear over night. Really dries skin out so be careful and moisturizer well. Good price for a quick treatment.

This sits by the side of my bed every night. You only need a small amount for it to work so the tiny tube lasts ages! My spots cleared up from the first time I ever used the product.

This product has an overnight effect. I use it on acne that is still under the skin and is red and/or bumpy before it becomes a full spot and see almost instant results.

It did nothing for my skin. I have been applying it on my spots for a week and there still hasn’t been a change. It caused more pimples for me. Would not recommend.

It dries the acne up a little bit, but I haven't noticed much of a change. It doesn't show visible results in the said time, so I am not the happiest with this product.

Helps my spots disappear over night. Helps my under the skin spots to be less painful but the spots that are not under the skin can disapper over night when I use this.

One of the products that help me with my acne prone skin. By applying the product on at night, it helps soothe the spot and by using it every day it starts to fade.

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?
