This is not an overnight disappearing cream HOWEVER, it significantly reduces redness and size of blemish after one use. From my experience with this it completely got rid of stubborn acne after 3-4 uses. This was an excellent value for me because I bought the kit ($37) that contained the treatment "stickers", this spot treatment, a serum, and an acne face wash which all helped in clearing my complexion, lightened acne scars, got rid of my acne, smoothed skin, helped fine lines, wrinkles, pores, and black heads. Only downside is that any of these products will dry your skin so as long as your using a moisturizer you'll be good to go

The smell is a little funky but if you can get past that then it’s an amazing product. I use this product mostly for cystic acne that hurts, and by the next morning the affected area is visibly reduced in size and redness.

Peter Thomas Roth has some of the best acne products out there in my opinion, and I've tried them all. I've used this particular product for years. While, it's an expensive product, it also comes with a lot of product, so it ends up being a good value in the end. Peter himself use to suffer from acne, so he personally developed products that work! What's great is the very unisex look of the products so women and men can benefit from this line in its entirety. Also, this product lasts me such a long time, because you only need a little and I break out sporadically. If you have all over consistent acne, then you might go through this product faster, but it's still going to last you longer than most over the counter acne products

I think this stuff smells awful but it really does work. I feel like you have to give it a little bit to really get rid of blemishes but you can tell every day it gets smaller and smaller. This is a very drying product but you should be good with a nice rich moisturizer. I prefer Kate Somerville eradicate spot treatment but this works when I don’t have that with me.

I thought this spot treatment worked pretty well. I noticed improvement in my acne over time. Not the most fast acting spot treatment but a good one nonetheless. I wouldn’t personally repurchase because I’ve found other I like more for me but it’s worth trying. It has a bad odor so if you’re sensitive to smells at all I wouldn’t recommend.

Okay. All of the positive reviews are making me feel like maybe I got a bad or expired product... or maybe I just need to give this more of a chance. More likely; however, is that this product just didn't work for my sensitive skin. I have used other products by Peter Thomas Roth before though without any issues and have LOVED them. This acne spot treatment though... I WANTED to love it and I wanted it to work (believe me I did!) but it actually made my breakouts worse! :( Has anyone else experienced this?

A little goes a long way with this great spot treatment! I have really sensitive/dry skin so this product can sometimes be a little too much on my face but works amazing for any stubborn back and chest acne I have. I had really been struggling trying to find something that would take care of these trouble spots until I found this product. I felt like I had tried everything (face and body acne products) but nothing seemed to help. Strongly recommend if you suffer from any of the same problems!

Honestly I loved this for clearing up my acne. It did leave my skin a little dry in areas and my skin got worse before it got better, but in the end it worked its magic. It's a little more pricey than other brands but I think it is worth the splurge. I would reccomend.

This product works great with fast results the only thing before you use this is make sure your face is clean and use a q tip when applying this so you don’t use your fingers which could transfer germs then you should have awesome results in at least a week!!

Is this a effective product to use and how fast does it work?

My 17 year old son suffers from acne and we have tried medications, proactive, and all sorts of over the counter washes, pills, and cleansers. My question would be... Does this really work? I know some people just post to post, but I need real info and experience. Also, does it stop the spread of blackheads?

How effective is this? I have had recent break outs and am not sure why! Nothing is helping. Looking for something for spot treatment so I can use my regular face washes still. Thanks!
