I'm on my third tube of Advantage, and it works wonderfully with my skin. I put a dot of this on emerging pimples and it takes away a lot of the redness. After two nights the zit is gone. It works well on pimples that have come to a head - it stings on application, but it does reduce the size of the pimple within a few hours.I think skincare is different from person to person, so while this product worked for me it may not work for everyone. But if you're looking for a good drugstore salicylic acid treatment, this is a pretty effective and inexpensive one to try.

This product worked okay the first couple uses. I originally was using it for spot treatment. After 3 days of use, I developed a bruise on my face in one of the areas that I was putting the acne treatment. I definitely would not recommend this product to anyone. The gel also stung my face really badly every single time I used it. This irritated my skin to the point that anything that I put on my face would sting, specifically in the area of bruising.

this works reeeally well!i find that if i put this on at night, when i wake up the size of the pimple is greatly reduced and eventually is gone in a couple of days. I was hesitant to use this, because i have tried many spot treatments that havent worked for me(MURAD ACNE SPOT TREATMENT!!). overall i love this spot treatment because it is not only effective and shows results, but it is cheap too! i am really happy with this, and will continue to use.

I don't break out very often, but when I do, I would use this. It works very well. I would put it on at night and when I wake up, I could see my pimples reduced in size. After a couple of nights, it would clear up everything. Also, this stuff lasted me for a very very long time.

Well... it's no miracle. That said, it's better than any other spot treatment I've tried. It works best if I have a really bad breakout, and a free day to sit around and reapply it every few hours, so I don't have to pop anything. It doesn't work well on blackheads or white heads, just the big yucky ones. I also put it on every night and before makeup on my problem areas- around my mouth and my nose, so nothing new forms when I'm not watching :D I used the tube within a couple of months, I'll buy another... even though I think my skin has built up a tolerance to it thanks to my constant reapplication!

I love this product. I tend to get one or 2 pimples from time to time and this product definitely helps prevent my pimples from getting to that stage with the white tip at the end. I like to use it on red spots on my face that look like a pimple would form. Its a must have for me.

I love this product. I don't get many pimples... but I do get a couple of blemishes every once in a while. I use this as a spot treatment on blemishes.. and it works like a charm! I usually put it on at night and by the next morning, the blemish has always gone down in size and redness.And if it is pimple - bigger, worse than a blemish - it also speeds up the healing process a lot!Love this stuff. There is a slight fragrance... very slight.. but it disappears once you've applied the product. This stuff doesn't sting, hurt or irritate the skin.

this is actually the second time i'm writing this review, as i had written one a year ago and just deleted it to give a fresh perspective on the product. when i first purchased this, i was wanting something to help keep the pores on my nose clean and clear (how appropriate), and it immediately accomplished that after about 4 days of nightly applications. however, much like a lot of acne-type products, my skin built up a tolerance to the treatment and it stopped working as well. even though it doesn't keep my pores 100% clear, i've continued to use this for a few years now and prob will keep purchasing it. some of the pro's for using this item are: the fact that it doesn't dry out the skin in my naturally more oily t-zone with daily applications (i have normal skin, maybe very slightly combo at times), keeps pores relatively clear and free of build-up, helps to clear up/shrink/dry out the occasional blemish, and comes in a clear gel formula that is invisible and comfortable on the skin. recently i started to get several whiteheads (now to be clear since this can be confusing, what i'm talking about are blackheads that aren't black-- just flesh-colored bumps) underneath my cheekbones on both sides of my face that i was very upset about. i don't know what caused them, the culprit may have been the serum i was using on my hair but i'm not sure since i've never had a skin reaction due to a hair product before, but i wanted them gone. after applying a very thin layer of Advantage Acne Spot Treatment to freshly washed skin for about 3 nights, the bumps have really started to disappear! i am extremely happy about this, and it's renewed my faith in this product. i think that the best thing for any type of clogged pores is salicylic acid since it's the only acid that's capable of exfoliating a pore from the inside out. this Clean & Clear treatment has 2% salicylic acid, which seems to be strong enough to clear up breakouts without wreaking havoc on your skin. now, after using this on a particular spot on your face for many nights, it will leave you with a patch of dry skin, but nothing so severe that a little bit of moisturizer can't solve the problem until the dry skin falls off. i would definitely recommend this product for your everyday skin problems, but don't know if it would work for more severe cases. i have repurchased many times and will continue to do so.

I love this acne product! I use this to spot treat, and it really helps to dry out my pimples and make them heal faster! I can't use bp because it bleaches everything, so I'm glad this works for me! Its great, without the bleaching and harshness of b peroxide.

I love this acne gel treatment...It is the only one i use. It has salycic acid that works immediately to help reduce the size and redness of the spot and it never dries my skin out. And if you want an all over acne treatment for your face then mix a small amount to your daily moisturiser to keep skin clear!
