Pretty decent at healing spots
Having used savlon on numerous occasions to help aid the healing of spots, I would recommend it for that. I found it didn't do much in the prevention of acne though, just healing old spots.

Only thing that works for me
I've been battling acne for years and tried various treatments (often expensive) to no avail! Savlon has been working well to clear up my acne but I have to apply it every night or another spot will appear. I've not use it for three days, and got one massive spot and two tiny ones. You'll need another product to help with scarring (or let it heal on its own in time), but this clears and prevents new acne.

Dries out spots but also very drying on the skin.

Solved redness, dryness and swelling issues.
Calmed bumpy skin
Noticeably more even complexion, can wear under makeup.
Very cheap

I have hormonal acne - whereby, I only break out on either side of my chin and nowhere else. I have changed my pill and have started seeing huge improvements alongside replacing my skincare with this products. I used Benzoyl peroxide, sudocrem, sacylic acid products etc and they all just dried out my skin really badly, didn't stop them coming back and made applying makeup impossible due to soreness, redness and flakiness. I stopped using these heavy products and just put this antiseptic cream on. Since using it, my flakey skin has completely gone and I have absolutely NO redness at all. It's calmed the bumpy unevenness of my skin by reducing swelling and my skin isn't sore, making makeup application SO much easier. This product is just what you need if you have hormonal acne.

no good on bigger spots

Heals quick
Smells nice
Good on any popped zits

I just love it


Doesn't get rid of spots or scarring

I use this when I pop my spots because it helps heals the open wound quickly, usually closed by the morning I wake up. It's not a wonder product for acne or scars. But I love it because you can use it for any wound, graze what ever. Just a wonderful product to keep around the house and I have been a long user of this products probably about 10 years now

Good for flaky skin after a harsh treatment,
The advanced formula is good for spots that have just popped.
mild and non irritating


bit greasy,

heals skin mildly, you can be assured that you can use it on open wounds, sores, cuts spots etc with out any irritation, has an anti bacterial element in it also, it does you no harm and has no side effects. An overall good cream to use for irritated skin. It isnt a wonder spot healer but you can be assured that it is a calming skin cream.
