Most Helpful Positive Review Feels great, makes me look even greater!
I got this two weeks ago on a whim, I struggle with hormonal & cystic acne as well as Dermatillomania (skin picking disorder). So I am constantly digging my nails into my face at bumps and pimples and I wind up spreading a lot of bacteria deep into my skin. I have previously tried Acure's vegan Saylic Acid spot treatment but found it leaving my skin very sticky. This one works wonders, slight burn on top of freshly picked spots, but not too bad at all and not sticky! I have been using it in a thin layer over my whole face and I've noticed that my skin is less infected and inflamed than it normally is and I would love to try the rest of Pacifica's acne products! The only thing I wish was different was the functioning of the bottle, it's very very difficult to squeeze the product out and especially if your hands are slippery! A pump would be a better fit for this product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Saw Zero Changes
I had high hopes for this gel. First, the bottle isn't the best for the product but I could have looked past that if this product worked on my acne. I've suffered from acne for all of adulthood. I tend to have most breakouts during warmer weather, too. I tried this on my face for several weeks and at different stages of my acne. Sadly this made zero impact on my acne. I saw no signs of drying it out, no signs of shrinking, no signs of anything. I wouldn't say this necessarily made it worst but it most certainly didn't help. I'll keep searching for my magical treatment...

Use every morning before moisturizer on problem areas. It is very hard to get the product out of the bottle as it takes a really good squeeze!

Works well, I really like it!
Doesn't do its job
EMRG123 from Columbia, MD
I have used many brands of salicylic spot treatements and they have all worked. Tried this as it costs less (says .3 oz, but mine was 1 oz like in the photo), and I guess it is the other ingredients in it, but ti doesn't dry anything out/reduce acne, and it leaves a sticky, shiny film where it was applied.
safe and good!

My baby had as little baby and on his nose that came around overnight and I put some of the dry it out on the spot and within minutes the redness was gone and it began disappearing!
best for a break out

I have been using this on any break outs I get that I want to get rid of fast and it has been the best thing ever! Pimple gone so much faster than usual!

I'm always skeptical about creams and gels that say they're going to shrink your pores. This one actually worked i only used it twice but when I woke up the next morning my pimple was actually smaller. Very neutral smell wise and there's no real color or dye to it.

This product is amazing! I love the on the spot acne treatment great for that surprise pimple! Super affordable!!!! It wouldn't change anything about it! First time user here and it really cleared my skin in DAYS!!!! I would totally buy this again!!!
cassieleewebb from undisclosed
This is a good spot treatment for moderate acne. I have moderate acne and it cleared up the spots mostly but not completely. I don't think I would purchase it again but for someone with light acne I would say it would be a good fit.
I like itttttt!!!!!

I actually love this product. I use it during the day and night and it helped dry out my pimples. I also use other products as well, but I added this to my face routine.
Amazing Acne Gel Spot Treatment
xoxojennii from undisclosed
I love the smell of this product! This doesn't get rid of pimples immediately overnight but it does reduce the size of them. It burns a bit at first when putting it on the blemish but it goes away after about 30 seconds. I also love that it's cruelty free, 100% vegan, and that it comes with cute packaging!
juliaw24 from undisclosed
This really really works! It dried out spots before they were even fully to the surface. This I will definitely be considering repurchasing. Really nice product.
DRY IT OUT GEL- THE BEST!
yacia from undisclosed
I love it!! I loved it...it took blemishes out over night really fast, the applicator is really convenient and fast. This is the best out of the whole collection and Id definitely worth all ur money.
nice spot corrector
amygc22f from undisclosed
I love using spot correctors because you can apply them at night on a red or pimple spot, and then wake up in the morning and it will be lightened were completely gone. The Pacifica one works nicely on my skin. I normally use the Nutra Drina spot treatment, but I loved incorporating this into my skin routine instead. I still switch between the two just so that my skin does not become a custom to one. But overall a great product
cassiesc42d from undisclosed
This product is great for treating pimples overnight. It is super handy and useful for when you suddenly have a pimple and want to get rid of it fast. It is gentle and so easy to use. After using it a few times with success, I will definitely be purchasing again!
fwmelissa from undisclosed

Holy Grail of acne products
opalpuff4073 from undisclosed
Wow, where do I even begin with this stuff? While it takes a bit of hand strength to get a little bit of this out, it works wonders! My breakouts were gone within a day or two!
sabraden from undisclosed
Yall! I cannot express my satisfaction with this acne line, AT ALL! My acne is stubborn and my skin is sensitive so acne products are always so scary for me to try. However, I did not have an adverse reaction to a single product in this line. This dry it out gel is amazing and works wonders on my stubborn acne that Ive been fighting to get rid of for YEARS!
Bye Bye Bumps
yeacass from undisclosed
I LOVE this product! I use it almost every night on any new pimples that pop up and it has worked wonders! At first, I was a bit apprehensive because I have never used a spot treatment before, but this was great for my first one!
Only critique is that the cap popped off and I have heard others cannot get it back in. I was able to got it back in, but it is a bit difficult to squeeze to dispense, however, it does make sure I do not get to much.
leeannbaugh from undisclosed
It just so happens that I had a huge cystic acne pimple when I received this. I applied it for two days and the spot literally shrunk until it disappeared. Its super gentle and the gel consistency is very soothing to the pimple. Im guilty of applying it to every little spot now lol.
so far so good
molliekfc53 from undisclosed
I like this for drying my pimples out (as its Labeled as such). I havent had to use it too much thus far, but Im sure once pimples start appearing from mask use itll be a staple in my daily skincare routine.
this works great!
maloriese8a6 from undisclosed
This works great to dry out those red spots that show up out of nowhere! Use it up to three times a day and it will definitely help clear up within a couple days!
makeupandcats57 from undisclosed
Not sure it does too much but I leave it as a top coat on any blemishes. Its gentle and easy to apply. It has a gel texture.

zap that zit overnight
hannahs4c03 from undisclosed
Ive only had the chance to use this a few times but when I did it worked really well. I put it on a spot at night before bed and when I got up the next morning the spot was either significantly smaller or almost gone. Really recommend this and will purchase after this one is used up
little goes a long way
megang92 from undisclosed
This product is like any other spot treatment. It does a fantastic job at drying out the blemish. Definitely try it out once and see how your skin reacts because this is some high strength stuff!
