Super remover!

I get really bad pimples, but what pimples aren't bad. This gel is amazing! It comes in a tiny bottle but it packs a big punch. I put it on a blemish before bed & in the morning I can tell a huge difference. Sometimes the pimple is almost totally gone. I do not recommend this for in the mornings. It creates a little film over the pimple & when I have tried putting makeup on top of it, you can sort of tell & I am pretty picky about things like that showing. I will continue using this product & I recommend it to everyone. I have sensitive skin, this does not irritate it at all. I have even used it on blemishes I get on my neck which we all know is super embarrassing.

life saver!

This spot treatment is small and powerful! I love this spot treatment for a few reasons 1) it does not dry out my skin 2) works quickly and 3) does not contain benzoyl peroxide (which can bleach your clothes and towels)

It can be hard to find a spot treatment that works well for adult acne.

I will be keeping this on hand at all times in my skincare routine when needed.

Pretty darn good!

Works overnight magic! I put this along my jawline where I have a constant breakout of cystic pimples and by the next day they are dried out and much smaller. Love it. A little goes a long way.

Great product

I suffer from hormonal acne around my chin, and this product really helps blemishes heal. I find it's particular effective for spots that you catch early, when you first feel some pressure and a lump forming. I put a dollop on the spot at night and by morning it's looking less angry.

The one thing I don't like about this product is it's not suitable for daytime wear with makeup. Makeup does not sit well on top of this spot creme, rather gets very flakey and sometimes peels off.

Works Wonders

This tea tree gel smells great and seems to work well with my skin. It's not too strong to where it makes your skin break out, either.

The best blemish controller
Purchased

Not much is needed here. Dries blemishes overnight without messing my pillow or sheets. It does not leave a residue and it dries quickly. Perfect for before bed, but I have used it before applying make up as well.

Love this

This is a great spot treatment--just make sure you ONLY use it on the exact spot. If you use it all over, get ready for some pimples to pop up! It has a way of pulling impurities out, but you'll regret that!

Good Things Come in Small Packages

When I first got it I was honestly shocked at how teeny the bottle was, but it doesn't take much at all! This stuff is amazing, I use it to pack a little extra punch when my normal routine fails me or I'm under extra stress and breaking out. It stops everything in its tracks. This will definitely be a permanent part of my beauty bag.

Amazing!
Purchased

I'm in my early 30's and just started getting cystic acne along my jawline. This is the only product I've found that clears the cysts up - usually takes somewhere between 1-3 days for them to completely go away while using this product twice a day. It can leave a white residue though, so I only use it while I'm going to be at home.
