  • 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:

For me it doesn't really make a difference... I'm disappointed but, i assume it's just not for my skin type and that I'm expecting too much out of a cream

I have used this product before on my face, my experience with this product didn't go as well as plan and it doesn't work at all for me since I have acne.

Didn’t work for me. I did try it a few times on large spots, small spots and under skin spots. Forms a Gel over the spot but only reduces redness not size.

This product is good, it healed my spots within a couple of days. However, when applied it makes the spots sting but only for a few seconds before drying.

I have cystic acne so this doesn't help with the deep acne but It's amazing for pimples that are closer to the surface! You can see a difference in one day.

I rate this product 3 stars as this product works on tiny pimples but it doesn't meet my expectations when it comes to big pimples but it is handy to have

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?
