  • 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!

It’s a great product, it does what it said it would do it. The price isn’t expensive at all and that’s good.
I’m definitely going to buy again.
The cream it’s very soft and makes you skin softer

This product was good for small open spots, i found it never done anything for larger spots. I would just dab it on at night and leave it overnight and some but not all spots would've shrunk. I wouldn't repurchase this product.

Targets spots well and reduces size of them overnight. However it works better for the occasional big spots more than acne in my opinion. A life saver for me when I need a spot to go quickly!

I would not recommend this product. This product does not work for my skin and wasn't effective. When applying it does go on smoothly and you can't see it, but after it being on my skin for a long time it leaves a film and flakes off. I will not be repurchasing.

This didn't work too well for me. In the commercials, it claims to be able to minimize the size of pimples quickly, but that was not the case for me. In the time that I used this product, I didn't really see any visible results.

This product is amazing, I love it. It reduces redness almost instantly! And if you use this with the whole collection it just makes the results so much better. I love Clean n Clear and I've been using they're products forever.

Esse é um bom produto para pessoas que assim como eu não tem acne com frequência e nem tem a pele oleosa mas que eventualmente tem alguma acne pontual. Então esse produto funciona muito bem porque seca a acne antes de ela crescer

This honestly is nice to apply, it is affordable and has good packaging, I bought it from a shoppers drug mart and it is smooth and spreads nicely. Definitely reduces the amount of acne on my face, could improve a bit in the moisturizing part.

This is so good as a spot treatment! If you put it on any active acne you have before you sleep you should wake up with the spot either gone or a lot smaller! I love it

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?
