My acne is very bad and I break out a lot. Whenever I notice a pimple coming up, I grab this and it will minimize my pimple by A LOT!! If you have a pimple that had already formed, it's too late to use this, but if you are acne prone, I would highly recommend this product!

I got a sample version of this and it worked very well, within 2 days my acne would disappear! I used it until the very last drop wasted! The price was good for the 4 other items that came with it which was a cleanser, eye creme, & a moisturizer, definitely worth it!

I have bought the whole Acne treatment package from Mary Kay. I used it consistently for about 2 months. The Acne Treatment Gel (full-sized) was included and to me, I believe this somewhat works! Even though the sole purpose of the Gel is to treat "upcoming" pimples. I put it on at night after my skincare regimen. I'll put it on places where I can feel pimples could come up, but I believe this product is best used to REDUCE REDNESS. Because when I wake up in the morning, the pimple isn't totally gone, but I could see the difference of some redness gone down and the pimple not as prominent. I usually wake up with some redness around pimple areas, but using this helps with that, for my skin. However, the gel isn't very "Gel", if that makes sense. It's a bit watery, but do try it. There is a travel size option and if you're not too thrilled with using the full bottle, get the travel size!

I used to have terrible acne and this product helped a lot. It didn't burn my skin and it wasn't too pricy for me which was great. The only thing is I used this product in a set with the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. But, I would still recommend the product. Although it might not be as effective by itself.

OBSESSED!!!!! Any and every time I have acne coming to the surface I use this!!! It's great and it doesn't irritate my skin!! It's gentle and I have v ur sensitive skin! However, I would say to only put on the infected area! Don't fix it if it's not broken! I love this whole line!

I have the set of 4 that comes with this. And I notice a difference in my skin right after I use it. It feels so smooth on your face. It does such a great job cleaning your skin. I got this from my friend, her mom is a Mary Kay consultant!

I've heard good things about this system... but after a couple days of using it twice a day, it started drying out my face a TON. I have fairly normal skin (don't get very oily and occasionally have problems with dryness) and figured that if I just used the system once a day instead, that would fix it. Nope. I DID notice a reduction in the amount of acne I had, but I don't think it's worth the drying effect. If anyone is curious about trying it (because it doesn't make everyone's skin dry out like that, just some of us) then I would recommend getting the travel-sized set to give it a test run. Also, Mary Kay consultants are pretty good about offering product returns/refunds/exchanges if a product doesn't work for you. Give it a try! If it doesn't dry your face out, then I think you'll be pleased with it! I would have been if it weren't for drying my face out.

This spot treatment does exactly what it should. It doesn't cause the extreme drying that a lot of other spot treatments I've tried do. It is very gentle but effective. I don't care for the packaging but that's a personal choice.

I've been thinking about getting this for my son's acne (puberty and what-not). OTC products don't seem to be that effective and I don't think we're at prescription level. Has anyone else used or seen it work for troubled teenage skin?
