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 the affected area. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

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

Know that clearer skin is in your future!

Horrible product. Worst I've ever used. It may work for others, but it didn't work for me, instead it worked against me! I broke out in hives within the first hour of using it. So even three days later after that, I still have hives/welts on and around my pimples!!! My face looks and feels horrible! I've had the urge to scratch my face off, because of how itchy it feels. Just a horrible product. I'll never use it again.

I put some of this stuff on a pimple over night and BAM it is significantly smaller the next day. I saw a huge improvement. I have very acne prone skin, so this stuff it a miracle worker. I regret not buying it sooner, it honestly helped minimize the pimple significantly. The only downside is that it can get a bit drying the next day, but nothing too overwhelming. Definitely recommend this stuff if you have issues with breakouts!

Really helped clear up my face- looks a lot clearer after only using this product for a couple of weeks. When you use it for a few days in a row as recommended, however, it can make your skin feel a little sore and slightly red, but it's well worth it. Recommend!

Good product

This product is pretty good in my opinion. I've been using it off and on for months now. When using it my acne decreases however there are always one or two pimples on my face. One downside is it burns for like 5 minutes and it really dries out your face. I guess I don't mind since it is working pretty good.

Only thing that works

I've had lots of acne and oily skin since middle school; my doctor's prescribed medications (benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin phosphate) all of which appear to work for a week or two, then give me rashes that take another week to disappear fully. Clean&clear's persa gel has been the only thing that works. The results are fast and very reliable. It does dry out my skin, which is why I like pairing it with C&C's Advantage Acne control moisturizer, a very lightweight lotion that smells phenomenal.

Will it start working?

I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and so far I have yet to see any change in my acne besides redness, more acne (it feels like anyway) and itching all the time- which they said was normal, so right now I said it was "fair" because maybe I'm going through that "gets WORSE before it gets better stage". It's not godawful redness yet, but its noticeable and it's driving me crazy because I don't know if its just me and my skin or the product. Really would like to see some "better" before too long though -_-
