Comments about Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment:

When I first got this product I was so excited from all the good reviews. And the product did work at first. But on the third use it just felt ineffective. I'd wake up with really oily skin. I thought it was helping but it was just oil concealing my acne. I was looking for something strong that dry out my pimples and teenage acne. Plus I have oily skin, so I was hoping for something that would kind mattify the oil in my skin while treating my acne. THIS JUST ADDED MORE OF A GREASY/OILY FEEL TO MY SKIN!!! I would not recommend this product for oily skin. If your looking for something strong to treat your acne/pimples this is not it.

          I believe I used this product back in middle school but since I was using so many products simultaneously, I wasn't really sure which product actually did its job. Unfortunately, I just stopped using it. Nevertheless, I decided to buy it the other day and wow! I had a really huge painful pimple on my temple and three smaller ones on my cheek. I applied just a little to these areas and the next morning the pimple on my temple was much smaller and no longer painful. Impressively, the three pimples on my cheek were completely gone! I am so amazed with this product and I will definitely repurchase!

              When I first bought this product I had high hopes for it but it just didn't deliver. I used this product in the morning and at night, both after washing my face for a month or so and it never seemed to make a difference. This product is not over drying but it's drying enough to notice it. I don't have a lot of acne, just a couple here and there in the t zone. I've used both products with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid (the benzoyl peroxide hurts my skin while the salicylic acid does absolutely nothing).

                I am in my late 30's, and this is the only product I'll use. I never had bad acne, but ladies, those pesky things still stick around even as you get older. I will have maybe one or two small to medium blemishes. I put this on and usually they are cleared (or at least much better) the next morning.
                I also have to say that a huge benefit to me is that its clear and you can't tell I have this on. I don't mind washing my face and seeing my husband without white dry gunk all over my face. :)

                I tried this but was NOT impressed with it and I hated the smell. It is a clear gel with a slightly alcohol, hand sanitizer like smell. I prefer a cream. My husband even tried it and used all of it so I replaced it with another cream I already reviewed and like much better.

                    I am decades older than when acne normally takes residence in your skin, so when I do still get one of the more stubborn reminders of my youth, I think it will will go away on its own. This one was almost a month old, under the skin and wasn't going away. Two days after I bought this product and used it at night, there was a significant reduction. A week later it is completely gone.

                      I'm always skeptical of acne quick fixes but I had been breaking out badly on my chin and jawline during my time of the month. Nothing seemed to be making it go away. My go-to acne treatment is Burt's Bees acne control stick but I had to look for another option when my local Ulta was out of stock. Picked this up hoping it would be better than nothing but it worked amazingly! Cleared up a deep breakout in about two days and has faded the redness and scaring (which is always a huge issue for me) with daily use for about a week. Very satisfied.

                        I applied it every night. The first night it worked wonders. I had scarring on my chin that was completely gone, and a few pimples were lightened on my cheeks. However, this product is not good for people with acne-prone skin. I think it is only good for people with very little acne. I've been using it for a few weeks and I see a little difference, but still very bad acne. :-(
