Advantage Mark Treatment

Item #: 2208172 Size: 0.5 oz

Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment treats pimples fast while diminishing the appearance of post-acne marks. This breakthrough formula is infused with a special oil dissolving technology that allows for delivery of acne medication, Salicylic Acid, to fight breakouts. The unique formula with Glycolic Acid promotes gentle surface skin turnover, improves skin's clarity and diminishes the appearance of post-acne marks.
Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once or even every other day.

Precautions: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward. For external use only. Flammable. Keep away from open fire or flame. Using this product and other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water.

      I use this product on spots that hurt and are relatively big. It's great because in a few hours the spot is smaller and doesn't hurt as much. The next day it's almost completely gone.

        Tried this because my skin had been in a bad place for a few months and I needed to do something. Within a week I could tell a difference. The day I see a pimple coming, I put this on my problem area that very night and it reduces redness, size within a day. Love.

            This has forever been my favorite product, I used it when I was in high school! I'm now a senior in college and have reverted back to using this product. It has always worked for me, clears my pimples within two-three days but reduces inflammation INSTANTLY. I just dab it right on the acne itself and *BOOM* I'm done. Easy peasy. Definitely a recommendation!

                Comments about Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment:

                Unfortunately, my favorite Salicylic Acid treatment was discontinued. I bought this in hopes of it being a replacement but I did NOT like it at all. It smells very strongly of alcohol/witch hazel. I use Salicylic Acid treatments to keep my blackheads at bay. However, this was not effective at all. It did an okay job at controlling acne but it does not work quickly. I will continue my search for a better Salicylic Acid product.

                Works ok; horrible smell

                By SailorT

                from NC

                Comments about Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment:

                I bought this a little over a year ago, so I've obviously had plenty of time to observe it and form an opinion about it. It's certainly not the worst spot treatment I've ever tried. It doesn't overdry. However, it's not very fast-acting, and I am a little annoyed by the overwhelming presence of witch hazel, which is a normal part of my zit care routine anyway. My biggest gripe is that it smells AWFUL. Not even a medicinal smell--that, I could take. It's like a vaguely sour, pickle-esque smell. My boyfriend even noticed it, to the extent that it's become a nightly joke for us after I put it on and come to bed. I'm close to throwing out the rest. Definitely trying another spot treatment, and it probably won't be C&C.

                Comments about Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment:

                I love this stuff. I feel like my acne scars fade faster than without using this product. It also dries out current breakouts and helps prevent new pimples. I still get several pimples a week using this, but much fewer than when just using benzoyl peroxide, they are much smaller pimples, I get dramatically fewer cystic pimples, and the product dries and heals them faster. It does cause dryness for the first few weeks, but that goes away once your skin adjusts to the product and I feel that it actually leaves my skin softer than before application when I use it now. Only complaint is that it never fully "dries" or "sets" which only bothers me when I use it at night (my face sticks to my pillowcase when I use it).

                  I used this to get rid of pimples that were almost gone and it made them come back looking even worse than before. It also dries out my skin.
