I'm now 30 and still battle with my acne. I've gotten it under control but major stress always makes my skin completely freak out, same with hormones. I was strolling around Ulta looking for a spot treatment and this immediately jumped out at me when I saw Lactic Acid and Tea Tree in the front of the box. Lactic acid has always worked well with my skin so I said why not.
The tube does say use a tiny amount, I only used a pin size dot to cover multiple spots. I let it sit for a moment then I went over with my moisturizer so my skin didn't dry out, since my skin can dry out very easily. I can see this product being very drying if you use too much or maybe even sticky like another reviewer said. So honestly TINY amount, you can always go back for more if you need to cover more spots.
I woke up today and I was shocked to see how much it cleared my breakouts up. I've never had a spot treatment work this effectively overnight. I keep looking in the mirror and I'm just so happy to finally see (massive) improvement from this breakout episode I've had.
I purchased this product to help control mild breakouts I get. I didn't find it as effective as other products I tried. However, my 12 year daughter is in the peak of breakout season!! She's now using it and it has helped control the acne. She feels a lot more confident!! =)

I bought this bc of the amazing reviews. Unfortunately, this did absolutely nothing for me. I have terrible cystic acne and scarring. combo skin. I used as instructed for approx 6 weeks and no change.

I rarely use spot treatments because I usually find they don't do anything. I decided to give this one a try, and I'm so glad I did!! There's a noticeable difference in the size and discoloration of my pimples overnight. After a couple nights, my big pimples are gone. Definitely recommend if you feel like you've tried everything!

Used this product the same day i bought it, AND its works amazing.. had a few small pimples appear for the first time on my cheeks and was not having it. This Spot gel has visibly diminished or disappeared them after just a few hours of using it. its now been a few days and my face it totally clear now.

i've tried so many products to get rid of my acne but none of them were effective. that is when i starting using this product. i saw huge results within a week and not only did it get rid of my pimples but it also got rid of my dark spots! it might sting a bit when you apply it but it goes away. 10/10 LOVE

I recommend this brand to all my friends who ask me what skin care products i use. 75% of all of my products are Perricone MD because my skin LOVES their products, especially this one. I put it on pimples as part of my night time skin care routine and they're gone by morning!

I randomly bought this after having tried every acne product on the market but also knowing the efficacy of Perricone products, I thought I would try it and know i could not lose. WOW. I am 38 and deal with hormonal acne and it drives me crazy. THIS and the face wash have cleared up my skin in about a weeks time. No new major breakouts and if anything pops up, I dab this on and its greatly reduced in size by the next morning. The texture of my skin is smooth and not dry. This has been the most comforting and softening acne treatment I have ever tried. Usually other brands leave you very parched and scaly. Not these!! I am so SO thankful for these products. I hate struggling with acne at my age!!!

Wonderful worked better than curology. Combined with a once daily little drop from both Nicinamide + Zinc and Azelic Acid both from the ordinary.

this used to not help as much until I started putting it on before bed, after I let my lotion dry down. there's 2 ways this treatment has worked for me- it either makes surface acne smaller and less red, or it totally draws out cystic acne until all of the puss is on the surface of the skin and then dries it up. the cystic acne solution is way less pretty and looks really gross, but it does get it out of there and also makes it heal faster which makes it a lot less physically painful. like other reviews said, it does leave a weird film on the face, which is why I only use it at night or if I'm not going anywhere. seems to absorb better at night as well.

I picked this up on a whim because my cystic acne is out of control. I bought this on Monday and by Thursday my horridly red painful, giant craters on my face were diminished to just outlines. From now on, as soon as I feel one coming on this is going on it!
Jess from New Jersey
Popped some on at the sight of a hormonal breakout and it almost cleared up over night!

When I notice a blemish beginning, I apply a small dab of this product. It has halted the blemish within a few hours every single time.

Not very effective. And it's STICKY! Let me tell you, it feels like someone literally put glue on your face. I won't be repurchasing.
CM from TX
Works great for maskne and any other breakouts. I try to wear it/reapply it whenever I get a chance. Really works!
Jess from New York

Also love the teatree smell. When I first started to used it would it got my skin felt like it was being cleaned out !

With having to wear my mask everyday I have some chin breakouts. This product has been such a "Great relief".

I used to avoid salicylic acid because I found that other products containing this active ingredient didn't do anything for me, so I'd turn to benzoyl peroxide for my on the spot treatments most of the time.
I've been battling acne since puberty hit and have done so much research to understand my skin type and try to combat my problems on my own. when I came across this spot gel treatment, I looked into it some more and the brand itself is a pretty renowned brand so I said, what do I have to lose? I've given everything else a shot. Received it, tried it that night and I'm hooked - this is my favorite go to spot treatment now.
how to combat acne: you can't do it from the outside and care for your skin only when you see trouble, you have to take preventative measures and start caring about your skin from the inside; drink more water and to add to skin hydration, moisturize. This product will work if you're already caring for your skin, it will not work if you expect it to fix your issue immediately without you doing your part.

I bought this because it had great reviews. It dried out my skin all around the affected area but the pimple was still there right in the middle of the dry patch. Will be returning.
Karen from Undisclosed

Victoria from Undisclosed
Good product, you can feel the sting when you put it on a fresh pimple but it left weird residue on my face almost glue like when it would peel off. Definitely can't put it on and run out of the house
