I LOVE this stuff!! I have a pretty good facial regime that keeps my skin clear- but things happen!! I fall asleep before my make-up comes off, stress, hormones..... I still end up with a blemish or 2. But, at the first sign, I treat the area with this gel!! It is clear so I can wear it under makeup during the day, and I love to spot treat with it before bed!! Gets rid of redness, swelling, and that makes the pain go away!! A little goes a LONG way, so it's worth it!!!!!
