  • 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 didn't do much for my acne. Although I'm not prone to a lot of spots, I didn't see improvement or reduction of my spots when using this. Not my first recommendation for acne treatment unfortunately!

Ok, this product for sure got rid of they horrible spots and reduced them. But the redness in my spots were still there, and it also had a nippiness to it. I would buy it again just because it gets rid of them.

I've been using this for years and I refuse to use anything else! This spot treatment works immediately and extremely well. I usually apply before bed and by morning my acne spots are gone! 100% would recommend.

Bought this to reduce spots quickly, however did not do much for me. It's light coverage and is clear so not visibly obvious. Would not recommend as it didn't help with my spots at all, nor did it prevent them.

My go to for quick fixes! Works within 4 hours which is ideal for nights I'm going out! Super gentle on the skin, and doesn't cause skin to dry out. I would certainly buy this product again... as I have already!

I love it! It treats all the little acne spots that pop up out of nowhere really fast! It works really well with my face and it really does the job on making the acne spots disappear. I recommend it to everyone.

Helps clear my spots off soo much quicker than what it normally takes for them to go away, gets rid off the redness and is very gentle on skin. Good value for the price and would recommend others to give it a go

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?
