I have had mild acne all my life. As an adult it has been frustrating. I should have outgrown it many years ago. But no. Since using Clean & Clear Advantage Acne spot treatment that problem is solved. I use a very tiny dot on spots at night and in the morning just a slight red mark remains. For me it is a great product and as I have very sensitive skin I was skeptical.

Decided to try this out and put a few spots of it on my pimples around the forehead and cheek area before bed. When I woke up my pimples had not gone away, were bright red and much worse than before. Also, I developed more pimples overnight from the product. Don’t normally write reviews, but this was awful.

WHY can't you make a 2% Salicylic Acid treatment product WITHOUT alcohol?? I want the great salicylic acid, I do not want the damaging alcohol! At least you could use MUCH LESS alcohol. I cannot buy this product (or the Mark Treatment) if you keep putting so much alcohol in it. Please reformulate!

This did get rid of my zits overnight but a couple days ago I put it on and when I woke up I had scars on both of my cheeks and my forehead that were bright red and it left me some dark spots, my skin was so nice and now it looks horrible.

I put this product on and felt a sting which wasn’t too strange and went away quickly. I left it on overnight and woke up with larger redder pimples, making my skin worse than it’s ever been in my life. So thanks for that wonder how long it’ll take me to get back to normal

I used this product when I had a breakout. I used this and put it on my face and kept it on overnight. When I put it on, it made my face burn but then went away after a couple minutes. When I woke up in the morning, my face was worse than it was the day before. This did not work for me, and on the bottle it said 100% of people see results, I did not see results. I will try it again, but for the first time around it made my skin worse.

As soon as I put this product on I felt a sting but that went away rather quickly. However, when I woke up I had large dark spots everywhere where I put the cream. Te company is a liar for writing that "100% of people got positive results" because it burned my skin. Plus, I've always had near perfect skin so this is very disappointing to me. Never buying anything from Clean and Clear ever again. Thanks a lot for your useless product Clean and "Clear".

I'm from Italy where Clean & Clear isn't unfortunately retailed. I get to grab their products either online or whenever I visit the US. I will say one thing: I'll always go an extra mile if it's for this brand. Nothing else works on me, I've tried products of all types and origins and this is the only spot treatment that works and very, VERY well at that. My skin is ultra oily and scars easily, yet it doesn't damage it and my pimples are all gone (or almost, for the big persistent ones) overnight. Please get your hands on this, you will not regret it. A little goes a looong way.
