    In my desperate attempt to get rid of my acne .. I literally bought everything that was targeted at blemishes - this being one of them

    Pro:
    - cheap
    - goes on clear / invisible

    Cons:
    - does not work at all
    - stings a bit

    I originally bought this spot treatment as something different to try from the usual benzoyl peroxide. Overall, I don't think it works as well as BP in combating acne, but I have noticed that using this treatment helps to heal a spot much faster. With BP treatments, I notice that the spot is still red and becomes very dry. This spot treatment is like a gel, which (for me at least) helps moisturize the area, reduces redness, and helps with scarring.

    In my late 50's and still break out now and then. This is effective and I like the fact that you are treating only the outbreak. It genuinely works and I have had no trouble with it drying out my skin. For the money, this is a great product.

    I use this for the unexpected breakouts that I have and have no complaints about it. It absorbs quickly, has no fragrance, does not irritate my skin and was affordable. Oh yeah, and it helps get rid of blemishes pretty quickly.

    I have pretty dry skin so I don't tend to break out at all. However stress, weather or just-because I do sometimes get the one off pimple. And of course they always have to appear on very visible retail spot such as smack dab middle of my cheek or forehead. That's when I whip out this baby. I just dab it on the spot and wake up the next morning to have it either disappear totally or shrink so it's not so noticeable. It has the consistency of a gel, goes on very nicely and sort of hardens to a slight rubbery texture that you can peel off the next day. When I put it on the pimple, the applied area looks a bit darker than my usual skin tone. But the next morning when I peel it off, the darkness is gone.

    I highly recommend this to anyone who has the one off pimple. I've already gotten my brother and husband to use it on their just-because ones and they both seem to like it fine.

    I have acne, always have and always attempted to do whatever I could about it. I have never tried Garnier Pure before this, but I was searching for a spot treatment pen and had tried almost everything out there and didnt like it, so I decided to try this out.

    I cannot believe how amazing it is! Love it! It works so well and fast! The best part is, if I dont put it only on the acne affected areas, that is ok because it doesnt dry out my skin! And that is saying a lot! Love it!

    I was totally amazed by this product. I wish I had discovered it sooner! It won't clear pimples right away, but it significantly reduces the redness and in about 3 or 4 days, the pimple is gone! What I don't like is the sticky feeling it leaves on the skin, but I guess I can handle it since this product keeps its promise so well.

    I had a serious problem pimple, one of the ones that wouldn't surface and my normal "spot" treatments weren't working. I decided to try this one out. Unlike the previous rater, I didn't find it drying, nor did it irritate my skin. (I have combination-sensitive skin) It didn't do the job right away but after 2 days the redness associated with the pimple was gone and within 5 days it was gone entirely. I was really impressed with this product and usually takes up to 2 days to get rid of a normal pimple. I'm definitely giving up the spot treatment I used previously and using this one instead!

    This product promises to be useful for emergency pimple control and I found it worked somewhat well. In spite of the sticky feeling it left on my skin and it's false claims to be a perfect base for make-up, it did reduce the size of many blemishes. However, I did find that it dried out my sensitive skin after prolonged use and also tended to increase the redness around most pimples. For that reason, I don't recommend it to others with sensitive, dry or red skin but it might prove more effective on normal or oily skin.
