  • 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!

This product was great at reducing the redness of my spots and really helped to prevent any further blemishes, however it did leave my skin feeling slightly dry but nothing too bad that I wouldn't re purchase this again

This is something I'd use if I forgot my acne cleanser at home during a vacation. It's nice anand has a good formula, but it doesn't work for me. My skin doesn't agree with it. Rubbery and slick is not a sensation I like, personally. It's a last minute grab

This spot treatment gets the job done however it dries my skin out too much. The packaging is nice easy to apply, it's a great value I bought mine at walmart. I would recommend it to anyone that does not have dry skin.

So I feel like this works like 8:10 times which I’m okay with lol as long as I haven’t already started picking a blemish, this gets the job done. It takes about 2 days to really see results, but it doesn’t actually help.

Similar to benzagel, does the job, gets down and dirty to deeply cleanse pores to really take care of those stubborn zits that are either popped or tempting to pop

I put this on at night and my blemish is reduced, but not gone. It is a decent product but not as magical as I would have liked. It is very affordable though, I would just recommend using it a few days before a big event.

Didn't seem to reduce or clear my spots up that much at all. I did see some results in the reducing of redness, However, it was disappointing that for the price I payed it did not do much of what it said on the bottle.

I founf that this product helped reduce spots incredibly well. It didnt get rid if them completely however if you have something on the next day and would like a spot to be less noticable then this will work wonders

Really helps with getting those pimples. I got this product at shoppers drug mart. This product is pricey but worth as it gets all the pimples within couple days.

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?
