Hello! I have moderate acne, which will inflame monthly, and I have found great use in this product! Other then the high risk of overusing, it's a very decent product for a low price. I even carry this bad boy around at school, if I notice a pimple I just wipe a dab, across it, and almost instantly the inflammation/redness, will disappear. Like any product this will not instantaneously cure all acne, depending on your skin sensitivity, and type which can be found out here; [link removed] I have combination, and have found this product very useful. Recommended!.

Pros:
  • Easy to use
  • Almost instantly vanished inflammation/redness
Cons:
  • Easy to overuse
  • Easy to cause dryness

Great product for a drugstore product. Definitely recommend this to anyone with light/minimal acne, for cystic acne, you might need something stronger.

Pros

  • works effectively
  • diminishes the breakout in 1-2 days
  • good for little breakouts

Cons

  • stings a little, but nothing unbearable
  • if you try using another product on top, it flakes so do your normal skincare before the spot treatment
  • light
  • for a day or two
  • $ 10
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I love this product, and it's the only other acne treatment I use other than face wash.

Pros

  • Results show the next day.

Cons

  • The people who say it stings are pussies. It's not bad at all. It's more like a "minty/ tingly" feel.
  • light
  • for about a week
  • $ 7
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I used this to help stop my pimples from forming, but instead I got an outbreak in the parts that I wasn't applying this to. My acne looks significantly worse than it did before I used this product.

Pros

  • Cheap

Cons

  • Didn't do anything for my acne
  • Seemed to be more of an outbreak than there was before
  • moderately severe
  • for a day or two
  • $ 7
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

This is a good treatment for just SPOT treatments. I don't suggest using this all over your face. The product has a very strong fragrance and can cause redness if you use more than a pea sized amount ( a little goes a long way). I don't think i will buy this product again for two reasons: 1. Too much added fragrance that is irritating my skin 2. Has not significantly made a difference in my skin complexion.

Pros

  • salicylic acid

Cons

  • small tube for price
  • strong fragrance
  • for a few months
  • $ 6.59
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

i love this product i re-bought it many times completely honest the bottom line is this is known to help acne and prevent it what i do with this is apply it all over my face and keep using it to prevent acne and honestly who likes acne i better prevent it then not so i would recommend it to use it all over the face and if you have sever acne this may not work for you this will only work for people with light and moderate acne and also since salysilic acid is fruit bashed acids it may not work for sever acne you may need benzil peroxide or how ever you spell that and that it putting oxygen and pushing your pimple out to a head. however when i break out alto sometimes occasionally i would aging use it all over my face it helps me .every one is different

Pros

  • it good product
  • clears up acne and it's scars
  • has salysilic acid and that is known to help and prevent breakouts

Cons

  • none honestly
  • wont work on sever acne
  • light
  • for a few months
  • $ 10
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Cons

  • you have to let it dry to put makeup

  • $ 6.99
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

This product will work a lot better if you use clean and clear ONLY. This product works great!

I use it everyday and it really helps. If it is combined with another product if may cause a redness that will go away in a day

Pros

  • reduces redness in less then 4 hours
  • cheaper then other products
  • helps from more acne from coming
  • works better if you only use clean & clear products

Cons

  • stings for about 5 seconds (but that's how you know it works)
  • may run out fast
  • if you use makeup over the blemish let the product dry before use or else when you put the make up on it will rub off the makeup and product.
  • moderate
  • for about a year
  • $ 5
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I gave this product a tried because i had whiteheads all over my cheeks and were under the surface of my skin. So I bought this and spread the cream (which you are not suppose to do) on my acne areas at night and literally in the morning, I felt my skin more tight, VERY red (LITERALLY), and burning, of course. It was awful. I do not reccomend this for sensitive skin.

Pros

  • It reduced the size of my pimples and got rid a FEW of my whiteheads.

Cons

  • Burned my skin as f--k.
  • Rashes on my skin.
  • No good for sensitive skin.
  • Only use this as a spot treatment, don't spread it in your whole face (my mistake..)
  • moderate
  • for a few weeks
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.
