I get cystic acne in my chin and it's mostly under control with my birth control pill but I still get 1 or so a month. I find that this is one of the best zit killers out there. BHA (salacylic acid) doesn't seem to do much but this has different active ingredients: triclosan, sulfur and bentonite. It does dry my skin if I overapply - you don't need much and like others mentioned, this is best applied in thin layers. It is pleasant to use, is completely clear and doesn't smell. I took one mark off for packaging as it tends to collect in the cap... but aside from that, this is fantastic. Highly recommended.

This works like a charm for me. I've purchased probably about 4 tubes by now. It's a wonderful spot treatment that clears up pimples fast. I've also never have had any bad reactions to this. No, drying, peeling, redness whatsoever. It also controls oil in my t-zone which i love. It costs me about $5 at wal-mart.

Clearasil said that this cream was to "Vanish" once applied but NOTHING like that happened. The cream left a whitish powder on my skin and even when I smoothed it out you could still see the whitish outline of the area that it was applied to. It takes about 2 days for the pimple to get smaller and less red and about a week for it to be fully gone. A very strong smell too but that does not bother me as much as the white marks it leaves.
I would use this trick almost every night before I go to bed. I would squeeze a small amount of this and just smear it all over my T-zone, and because I'm not going out or anything even when it leaves a white mark I won't really care. It also controls oil...for a while. And because it dries up I don't have to worry about it getting on my clothes.

This stuff is absolutely the best! I had a horrible breakout like worst in a year... and this stuff cleared it right up. My face is nearly completely clear now, except for the red marks from the last breakout, but those are fading fast! The first few days using were kind of tough because it made my face very dry and caused some peeling and flaking and overall my face was red and dry.... But I used Cetaphil moisturizer to get through it and it was well worth it! Because my skin adjusted to it in 3 days and now it's radiant and almost a hundred percent clear! Highly recommend.

Heres a tip for all you people unsure about this product.

Take my word for it ladies or else you'll regret it! go to page 10 and read all the BAD REVIEWS so you get a better idea of how many people regret this product.

I use this at the advice of my nail technician. I had it for awhile, but never really used it. She said to apply it in thin layers at night, and I started doing so and my skin has never been clearer! I updated my skincare regimen, with this included. Just be careful when applying it, I put it on my chest/neck, and it burned my skin. It's made for your face, and not sensitive areas (like around eyes). Also make sure you use a good moisturizer with it, and make sure you use a deep cleanser to clear out the gunk it leaves behind!

I felt it working a mere twenty minutes after applying.
Excellent for large or blister-y zits.
Very smooth, creamy, and gentle.
No vulgar smell!
It works like magic. Zits feel smaller in very little time.
Prevents breakouts very effectively.
With any of my rare breakouts, it works terrifically. It takes two or three days maximum for my skin damage to vanish. For small zits, only one day of use completely diminishes them.
~ Read the directions. It does say that less is more; one thin layer is best.
~ Feel free to mix and match with other products and brands. I use a variety of brands for my skin care and none of them react badly with Clearasil.
~ Apply to the back of neck. Works wonders.
~ Apply several times a day. It takes a lot of this product to make your skin dry, in my experience.
~ Apply after rinsing face with room temperature water for best results.
~ Wear overnight, even if your skin is looking clear! Prevents stuff very well.

This stuff works pretty well. The trick, for me, is how I use it. It seems to work best when applied in thin layers more often (say 2-3 times a day). It helps gradually reduce the size of my stubborn, long lasting pimples and clear up the smaller, more fleeting ones. I would repurchase.

I am on my second tube. This stuff does work! I have the 5% benzoyl peroxide and this dries up any pimples I have. I don't get many big pimples but I do have have small whitehead type pimples which I hate but this has cleared them up significantly. It is drying which is why you need to use a good moisturizer before or after using this. I use Cetaphil Cream (the one in the tub) and it does not dry up my skin. Not only that but I have pretty oily skin so I like that this takes the shine away and sort of mattifies my skin. Definitely recommend but be careful if you have dry, sensitive skin. Start out with a lower percentage like 2.5%.

This did nothing for my blemishes, and my skin reacted really badly to this - I think I got hives for about two days. It was red, and my skin broke out even more. I don't know if it's because of this product, or maybe my skin doesn't react well with benzoyl peroxide.
EDIT: This stuff really works! I've noticed such a huge change in my skin, I had a bad reaction to it but it was just my skin adjusting to the product.
