LOVE THIS STUFF! I'm deployed in Afghanistan right now and since I've been here I've broken out with acne like a teenage girl. The weather and water has taken a toll on my skin. When I read the reviews on this product I was skeptical at first but I gave it a shot and I'm so glad I did! Best way that works for me is during the night. I rub a little bit on my pimples (even after popping some) and then I dab some more on top of them without rubbing it in and go to sleep. When I wake up they're either completely gone or they've shrunk in size dramatically. Either way I'm super happy because I was worried this acne problem out here was going to pester me for the rest of the deployment. Thanks Clearasil!!

I bought this product to help with persistent moderate adult acne. I get blemishes on my cheeks, nose, forehead, chin... But not a lot of them. Sometimes they become inflamed and painful. The 2% salicylic acid treatment I had been using for years has seemed to not be effective anymore, so I decided to try something different. I have combination skin but do not consider myself to have sensitive skin.
At first the Clearasil cream worked ok. It dried up some of my blemishes, but there was still a big red one on my nose and some whiteheads on my cheek. I didn't use it every day because I know acne treatments can be drying. After about a week, I noticed some drying, but not too bad. But after a week and a half, I noticed dry, red, flaking skin around my nose and on my chin along with reddish bumps. At that point I stopped using the cream, but it kept getting worse - the horrible dryness spread to places I had never put the cream like around my eyes and on my neck. It goes without saying that I will be throwing this out. I'm still trying to make my face look normal again!

    Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream, Vanishing, 1 oz:

    I have moderate adult acne. I have tried using this product numerous times, and it has not once worked for me. All it did was dry out my skin. It did not get rid of the pimples, or even reduce the redness or size. I usually applied the cream at night, and the next morning I woke up exactly the same except with much drier skin. I'm sure this product works for some people, but it did not work at all for me.

      I put this product on my chin over night, since I get all my acne there. When I woke up, my chin was severely dry, itchy, and uncomfortable. Sure it got rid of the acne, but I'm left with terrible skin a few days before school picture day. Don't buy it.

            Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream, Vanishing, 1 oz:

            this produst seemed fine at first, i got the tinted one which once you put on didn't really act like foundation. it pretty much went on clear even though it looks very tinted. it burned only a little. i only used it on 3 spots on my chin no where else on my face, and after a day went by it looked okay. so on the 3rd day i put some on in the morning then later washed it off to go swimming because it said to avoid sun with it on or something like that. anyway i was in the sun for an hour and 15 minutes and i got home took a shower dryed my face off and was like OMG whats wrong with my chin..it was SOOOOOO rough like embarassing rough and really really red. please note i do not have sensitive skin at all so for this to happen to me you know it is very strong. i'm going on my 3rd day of dryness and i'm extremly upset about it.

              This works great for my occasional breakout. I have been putting it on areas more prone to breakouts just to prevent even getting a breakout and I swear I haven't had a single blemish since I started using it. It does dry out the skin as all acne treatments seem to do, but I use a moisturizer with it and haven't had any troubles.

                like seriously? This is the best product I have ever used in my whole life. LIke, I only made this account to tell people how awesome this product is. It seriously works overnight.[$]? yeah, it the best thing ive ever used. It never stops working. At night I usually pop my zits or whatever with a needle, I cleanse the infected area(s) with the clearasil cleansing pads, and then I apply a dab of the clearasil acne treatment to the infected area. then when I wake up, its really tiny. Then I do it again the next night, and its gone. BEST acne treatment. cheap, yet very effective(: use it guys!!!

                  I bought this product based on the recommendation of a magazine, but after a few uses it was clear that this product was not for me. Burnt my skin every time I used it! The irritation took a few days to go away each time too. It did reduce the size of the zit, but destroyed the skin around it as well. Definitely trying a less harsh product next.

                  This product is THE BEST! I was using this product for about 1 1/2 years and then I decided to switch to Neutrogena's 2.5 bp cream, since my skin was clear I assumed I can go with a lower dosage and different product. I couldn't have been more wrong. My skin reverted back to my old acne breakouts and it took me six months to go back to this product. It is truly the best acne treatment out there. I use it all over my face to prevent pimples and it does work. Don't waste your money on niche brands which are more expensive and you have to go out of your way to purchase

                  Best affordable product out there! A couple of years ago, my face was covered with zits. I tried everything, including Proactiv. Then I tried this along with the Clearasil ultra face wash, in just a few days my face was almost clear, and in 2 weeks, I had zero zits. I'm still using this and it works great. I tried switching to something else, and ended up getting tons of zits, so this is the product Ill stick with.
