Shrinks and reduces redness of pimples

Submission Date:

Review Text: 
I have been using this product for about 2 years. It definitely works--it shrinks and reduces the redness of the pimple within a day or so. It does kind of dry out the skin a bit, however. Also, the pimple does not go away completely until about 5 days for me, but nevertheless it is still pretty effective. Remember not to put moisturizer before applying the spot treatment or on top of the spot treatment because it won't work that way.

Clears Acne Without Drying

Review Text: 
After being a proactiv plus user for over a year and still breaking out, I decided to give clean and clear a try. I have been applying this in the morning after I moisturize. I love that it goes on clear and I can feel it working. Pimples and bumps are reduced in size and any old acne marks I had are significantly less noticible. Great product!

I just started using this product yesterday. I put the product on right before I went to bed and when I woke up, my spots were almost gone! The only problem is it makes my skin very dry, but my moisturizer fixes that. If you want fast results, then try this product!

This product worked the first few days, but after the 3rd day, my skin became irritated and left burn marks on acne spots. Made acne shrink in size, but definitely wider, more visible and even more red!

I love this stuff. I wish I had this in high school! I put it on right when I start to feel that pain under the skin when a pimple is forming and sometimes it doesn't produce a white head if I catch it in time. Like the directions say I use it about 3 times a day. Lost one star because it does dry out the area of the pimple but a good daily moisturizer fixes that in no time.
