Rated 5 out of 5 by from For me, it is the only thing that works Reading the other reviews, it is obvious that what works for one person will no work on someone else's skin. However, I have been purchasing and repurchasing this product for years and find that it really works to reduce spots. I would recommend using this over night as it does leave a film over the spot that means that you cannot put makeup over the top. (If you are looking for an alternative try the clinique spot gel - much more pricey though!) However, if you cleanse the skin then pop a blob of this over the top and leave for an hour you will start to see the difference! If you then remove it, it makes a blemish so much easier to cover!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works! I am 49 and have been suffering from awful spots on my chin (never had them before the menopause kicked in) and they were sore, red and getting me down. Make up didn't cover them properly. I bought this at the supermarket, very good price and used it that evening. In the morning the redness had gone down a lot and I used it twice that day, when I got up the second day they had practically gone. No make up needed at all, I used it for another day just to clear up the unevenness. Really pleased that I bought this, can't rate it highly enough. 4 days later you can't tell they were even there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what it promises! Alongside this I use Benzoyl Peroxide and a Neutrogena Oil free moisturizer. I've been working on clearing my face but I have stubborn acne on my chin and a bit above my eyebrows that just would not go away. The benzoyl peroxide cleared up a lot but not completely. I was so surprised when i actually started seeing differences in four hours. The zits flattened and looked less irritated. Usually my zits stay a long time because i've really inflamed zits. nodules etc. this makes it go away in 1-2 days. and after the first day the zit isnt red anymore and not as irritated. completely gone by day 2 and no scarring. yay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for occassional outbreaks Although in my 40s I still get occassional spots. I've tried lots of treatments - because of my age a lot of these are too strong and sting or leave my skin tight and overly dry - which can make the spot more painful so making me more concious of it's presence without needing to see it in the mirror! This treatment doesn't do that. You only need a tiny amount (so very good value) dabbed onto the individual spot. It can leave a bit of a residue if you apply too much - so be very careful if using it in the mornings but it's fine at bedtime. Don't think it would be the right product if you get widespread acne though - it'd leave a coating and run out too quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works! I suffer with frequent mass spot breakouts, and have been buying product after product in the attempt to clear my skin. I bought this as a last resort, not expecting it to work to be honest but to my surprise, it dried my spots right out - didn’t even have to pop any! I use this over the period of a night or two (depending on the spot size) and it genuinely has shrunk, and my skin is clearing right up. There is a little bit of a burning sensation, but for me personally that’s if I apply it straight after I wash my face. Smell could be a bit strong for some people, but it doesn’t bother me. Overall a great product and a very good price considering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reduces redness I used this product to try and clear some spots I have had for a long time - that just won't seem to budge. On the first use I noticed some reduction in redness, although this did take longer than the 4 hours advertised. However, since then, there has been no more improvement in the spots, and the product just appears to be drying out my skin. Despite this I suspect that this product would be really good for reducing the inflammation of new spots, and will be trying it out early for any new breakouts I have. It is also excellent value for money, so you have nothing to lose by trying it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neutrogena Visibly Clear This is a staple product for me. I always keep one in the cupboard/drawer and constantly repurchase. It works. As soon as the treatment is applied to the blemish or spot, it gets to work immediately cooling without drying out the skin and without leaving the affected area aggravated. Redness is reduced instantly and this quick acting clear gel really does reduce spots efficiently. A little goes a long way and this 15ml tube lasts a long time. If you suffer from the occasional annoying breakout, then this product is well worth trying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It did nothing for me I never get breakouts but the other day I left my heavy make up on after a night out and woke up a couple of days later with a big spot on my cheek. I wouldn't usually fuss but it was right in the middle of my cheek and it looked like I had a bruise because it was so red. So I went to my nearest boots during my break at work to see what I could find for a reasonable price, and I chose this, immediately applied it and hoped that by the end of my 4 hour shift the spot would be reduced. But it made no difference. I applied it twice more and it still made no difference so wouldn't recommend this.
