Directions

Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.

So wash your face then apply a thin layer over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day.

I get really bad chin acne and i try to hid it all the time. My skin has always been dry ans sensitive. Whenever i put makeup on the spots crust and dry oatchs appear, the spots are usually whiteheads or red lumps. I was just wondering would this be safe to use over scars and sensitive skin?

I do not recommend this product, I had really small skin colored pimples and they are now giant, red, and they burn like crazy. It is completely incorrect that it helps in just 4 hours and that 100% of people saw results. I have read tons of reviews about this and I saw A Lot that had the same problems. For clean and clear being such a great brand, they sure made a pretty awful product.

The most effective product to reduce redness and acne so far from me! I have really oily and acne prone skin and this product really works on me. I've been using it for ages :)

I have been endlessly searching for a product to clear my all-over-the-face acne. I've been through possibly hundreds of products but none of them have actually worked, and my acne has been getting worse. I've talked to my doctor, but all she gave me was a chunky cream that dried out my skin and showed no results whatsoever. I passed by this product in the supermarket, thinking that I have nothing else to loose, so I tried it on that night. When I woke up in the morning, I walked into the bathroom and looked in the mirror, expecting no difference. But the second I saw my skin I lit up! This product claims that you will see results in the first try, and thats exactly what it did. My redness has gone down immensely and I barley have to use any beauty products to cover it up anymore. Thank you so much, Clean and Clear.

This product works well. I highly recommend it for anyone who has acne. I use it at night, wash it off in the morning. And then I put on lotion because it has a tendency to dry my skin out. I am however VERY disappointed that they have shrunk the container by a third! That is a lot! The price is the same but it is no longer .75 fl oz. It is now only .5 FL. OZ. This is a bit expensive for only .5!! I think this was a poor business move and a very cheap thing to do. I'm not very happy about that and I will probably be looking to find a very similar product from a different brand.

I keep mine in my purse and everytime one of my friends has a pimple, I tell them to try it and it has worked for all of them. The larger the pimple the longer it takes for it to go away but everyone seems to love it.

This reduced my cystic acne spots in 3 days completely, and they even showed improvement overnight! Your spots may seem redder at first, but the redness will soon go away. This product saved my self esteem !
