I'm in my late 20s and have occasional, yet stubborn breakouts. This product is awesome and I use it for spot treatment. I don't really notice a difference after 4 hours, sadly - but I do if I leave it on overnight. It visibly shrinks the zit and lessens the redness - and I've had some big ones that looked almost gone after using this. I think as your skin and body rests whiles you sleep, it helps the healing process of the acne.

I've been using this product for several years and I recommend using it one of two ways:

1. Just dab on a decent amount to cover the zit/pimple - don't rub it in. Or...

2. Rub in a little of the product into the pimple, then dab on a bit more and let it sit on top of the skin.

I personally don't have any problems with my skin being overly dry after using this product, so I'm not afraid to use the doubling up method of rubbing a bit in, then putting a bit more on and letting it sit on the skin.

Try and see which works best for you, but always try and use this as an overnight treatment if you're not seeing any improvement when using it for the 4 hours.

Had to Toss after Only a Few Uses

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.

Awful

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

This was pretty bad. At first, I thought it would help my skin...but it made it worse. My skin became oily and peeling. It made pimples worse! I stopped using this and my skin became more clear and smooth. I'm telling you right now, this product is horrible save your money and don't buy it.

Didn't work for me at all

By GIJane

from Winter Park, CO

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

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!

Really works quickly

By Bunny from NC

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

I have adult acne. I never really had breakouts until I turned 30. It's fairly mild with breakouts only about once a month. For the most part, I control breakouts with the use of Persa Gel. In the past couple of years, I've started getting one or two really large, ugly breakouts. I decided to try the Clearasil Rapid Action Treatment. I can't believe how well it works. When I feel a breakout coming, I apply this directly to the area and, usually, it stops the breakout completely. If not, it reduces the size and severity. You can see a difference in four hours. The active ingredient is the same as my Persa Gel so I don't know what the difference is in the delivery but it makes a difference. I haven't had any problems with it drying my skin or flaking. I use it only as a spot treatment.

Bring the "TINTED" option back

By Twyz

from Herndon, VA

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

I love this product, but the tinted option was much more functional for me and is not manufactured anymore. The problem is that there is no alternative product. SUGGESTION TO CLEARASIL....PLEASE BRING THE TINTED ULTRA LOTION BACK!!!!

My go-to pimple treatment

Pros

  • Works Effectively

Cons

  • Irritates Skin

Best Uses

  • Moderate Acne

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

I have found through trial and error that my skin responds best to benzoyl peroxide; salicylic acid doesn't do anything for me. I get occasional pimples around my hairline (from oily hair I suppose) and occasionally on the bridge of my nose from the sunglasses I have to wear at work. In addition I get small pimples on my chin right around when I get my period. This product works on them all. It is drying and I don't have bad or chronic acne, so I apply only where I see a pimple coming up so it doesn't dry out my skin. I wash my face with a benzoyl peroxide wash, apply this on problem spots, and follow with an oil-free moisturizer. If I apply as soon as I notice a pimple coming up, it's usually reduced overnight and dissapears completely within 2 days.

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

    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!!

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

        So glad I found this product! I've used other benzoyl peroxide products but for some reason this one works a million times better! The only time I have a breakout anymore is usually when it's "that time of the month," and it clears up much faster with this stuff than anything else. The only downside is that it makes my face a little red. If you only have acne in certain areas I would recommend just using this product in those areas and using something a little milder for the rest of your face to avoid a lot of irritation.

          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.
