Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on the spot treatment for acne I bought this on the spot treatment a couple months ago and I love it! I always get an influx of acne due to hormones during menstruation which is why I had been searching for an acne spot treatment. This product works great and dries up acne within a few days. I will also rub some on if I feel acne coming on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reduced redness, inflammation, and frequency after one night I truly believe that this product works and every word I type in this review is honest. I am not benefiting from writing this review; I am writing this review to benefit you as the consumer. Background: Both of my brothers (both 17 years old) suffer from intense red acne that surfaces all around their lower cheek's, jaw, chin, and nose. I also have acne (20 year old girl) but its gotten better as I've gotten older and since I've started using Philosophy products. My acne is either red, irritated, and relatively flat pimples or small bumps that occurs on my forehead, chin, jaw, and cheeks. Past Experience: That being said, we have tried everything to clear up our skin! Including prescribed medications, chemical facials, many convenient store spot treatments, and anything with salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide. You name it, we've tried it, and none of it worked! Application: UNTIL one day (last week) my Mom came home with THIS Philosophy spot treatment and I decided to give it a go. Thinking to myself, "Why not try it? I'm breaking out a little anyway (red, blotchy, flattish pimples on forehead and cheeks)and I don't really like my current (super thick and drying)spot treatment." So I washed my face(purity face wash), put on my moisturizer(also from philosophy), applied the first layer of the treatment, and got ready to watch a show. After 2 minutes I could already tell a difference compared to the other spot treatments I've tried. This one wasn't sticky or heavy and went on clear, completely absorbing into my skin. Before going to sleep I put another layer on (1-2 hours after first layer) like the bottle instructed and went to sleep. Results: The next morning my redness and inflammation had gone down SIGNIFICANTLY and many of the little pimples on my chin and upper cheeks were either gone or a lot less apparent. I was astonished. Plus my skin wasn't super dried out or sensitive to the touch! Instead my skin felt smoother because the bumps and inflammation had gone down. I'm being 100% honest with this review so I'm not going to sit here and type that my acne was gone completely after one night. HOWEVER I will absolutely say that NOW I have clear skin (with the exception of a pimple once in a while) and my makeup load is much lighter because of that. Brother's Results: I'd like to make clear that my brother's results are coming from my own observations taken from looking at their skin. From my perspective, it seems like their pimples are drying up faster than before starting this treatment, with less visible white heads. Their acne was also a lot more severe than mine to begin with and yet i have started to see pertaining to inflammation progress. This is impressive because it's hard to notice changes on skin that's not your own. Do I recommend? Yes! As long as you put this on as directed I think it will definitely work some magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this At age 61, I still get pimples. This product is easy to use, works well with other products, layers well, and works wonders. Thanks for making such a wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best spot treatment! I had a few very stubborn spots that’s didn’t want to budge, so I thought I’d try this out, and it’s amazing! My face quickly was noticeably more clear, and those stubborn spots didn’t stand a chance with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get the Job Done! I’ve purchased this item several times. It truly works at having blemishes stay away. Minimizing the look of already existing ones and not having any show in the future. It’s great for on-the-spot treatment. It will not dry-out your skin. Depending how severe your acne is, I believe this item would work well for anyone with mild acne based on its ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I get cystic acne. This spot treatment treats both cystic and regular acne. Additionally, the treatment prevents a dark spot from remaining.
