  • Pimples are reduced in size, swelling and redness, and the formula won’t over-dry your skin.

One of the best products for break outs. It doesn't dry out the surrounding skin , but it does a good job reducing the redness and shrinking imperfections from breakouts.

This product works great for those blemishes that pop out of nowhere it clears them up fast without and long facial routine. Just dab on your blemish and wait for it to clear up.

This is one of the best spot treatments out-there for treating blemishes. Add a tiny amount (too much and it will turn your skin red and peel off) at night and in the morning and your blemish should be gone within a day or two.

Using this product once, it did help me get rid of my blemish. But to me, the product had a strong chemical scent, and gave my blemish area a stingy/burning feeling. That might just be my skin though.

Giving it a B because it does work, just an unpleasant process.

I have frequent breakouts, and whenever I use this they disappear overnight! It's a little bit drying, but I tend to be left with dry patches after pimples leave anyway.

SO AMAZING!! After the first week of using it there was a huge overall improvement in my skin. It reduced the appearance of my pimples so quickly. And if you're thinking of wearing this under makeup, don't do it because it just flakes off and looks like dry skin.

Works well to clear acne and reduce redness. Effective. Wasn't too harsh on my skin. The tube makes it easy to dispense and apply. Repeat user, always keep it on hand.

I love this product! It's my go to product to get rid of spots/pimples. It makes my spots disappear overnight. It has nice, simple packaging. I've used this product multiple times and it is easily available. I would highly recommend this product.

Really effective. Has a cooling, tingling substation when applied, and sometimes when applies over a more sensitive area or for the first time can burn a little, but it gets the job done. Never apply over large areas of the face, only use it directly on spots.

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?
