Be careful when using this product
If you use this product just apply it via a cotton bud and only to the pimple as if you touch surrounding skin, it’s like a 2nd° burn. I’m not sure whether it got rid of the pimple.... as my skin was red and raised where it was originally.

Amazing, love it
I was not going to review this product but my experience is so different from the other reviews that I felt I had to! My face has been very blotchy and I've always had pimples on my nose, forehead, cheeks, chin and jaw line. I'm 40 years old so it's not the best look! I hated my face! I've been using this product for a couple of weeks now (the one tube has lasted this long with one or twice daily application) and my redness and splotchy have cleared up!! I no longer get white heads at all!! I have had no adverse reactions at all. My skin is very oily and maybe that accounts for the difference in results!

This product is not for everyone
This product is simply not for everyone. I've read some review stating that this cream helps their acne and redness, and maybe for them it does work well.
The product says that this is a STRONG cream and some redness might occur during the first few days of wearing it. In my case, thats what happened, but it is not worth it. The redness was really bad, all over the spot I put the cream on, so with my pale skin it looks like I had some serious skin damage. So rough patch also appear on my skin--it looks like the product might've burnt my skin. I...
Apply only on affected spot
YES - It makes your skin itchy. Red. Inflamed - IF - you use it all over your skin.
However, use as per label and apply only to the spot.
Reduction in inflammation, redness reduces immediately. Pimple reduced in size overnight.

I've been using it for a week and every morning when I wake up I'll have white dots all over my face and it's made my face worse, My face was getting better and the cream has made it worse!!!!
This product is too harsh!
I've been using the Clearasil Ultra range for almost two years now and haven't had any issues. However, last night was the first time I tried the Acne Treatment Cream, and honestly, the labelling doesn't lie, this stuff is most definitely "extra strength."
I don't have sensitive skin; I've used strong products on my face before, and I've never had an adverse reaction. This product, however, is an exception as it's far too strong. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, you should think twice before using this product because my face is currentl...
RED, ITCHY AND FLAKY SKIN
I used this to clear up the occasional pimple- I don't have many pimples, but the occasional one will pop up on the chin or forehead. I used this product ONCE, and the results were disastrous. My face went red overnight and swollen, and stayed like that for about four days. This stuff is really strong, and my skin is usually not sensitive. Then the peeling and dryness came, and I didn't touch the product again. I don't recommend this product at all. Clearasil face washes also did nothing for me,
Only product that works for me
I wet my face,head (shaved)and hands slightly and smooth a small amount all over once or twice a day.
I do not get any irritation.Reduces Rosacea and red blotches.
No shiny head either.
Does more than you think!
Didn't react well to my sensitive skin BUT does effectively remove warts! Yes you heard me, just by accident I discovered this. Must be the particular chemicals in it, but was very effective for me as a I had two small ones (on hand and toe) and after maybe a week they disappeared and haven't returned.
Not as good as the Rapid Action
I have been using the Clearasil Rapid Action Pimple Cream for several years with fairly good results - but last shopping trip decided to give the new 'ULTRA - Extra Strength' version a go.
This product, in comparison, appears to have little to NO effect on my acne at all. I did find the ingredients gentle enough to not burn or inflame my skin (which is an issue I have with most things containing Benzoyl peroxide) which is often a concern when selecting acne products - but for the 0 effect this appears to have, not exactly a point that will w...in me over. In addition to this, I notice that the ingredients in this product have a tendency to "split", and so instead of a cream coming out, a liquid accompanied by some clumped white product is produced. I am force to try to "mix" the tube and then squeeze it over a tissue or bin prior to initial use to actually get the "cream" consistency back. Will not purchase this product again at the expensive price mark of $16 for the little tube, and would rather sink that money into the Rapid Action that I know works. Gentle, Didn't irritate skin, Widely available Did nothing, Expensive
Works for me!
I like it. It definitely reduces redness (as fast as over night for me) and the duration of my blemishes is decreased. Definitely need to use it sparingly, too much and it can cause irritation and will dry skin out a bit. It's very much a "spot" treatment only. Wouldn't use for large breakouts.
Reduced pimple size and duration
Dries skin slightly
i needed a quick fix to remove a massive pimple the night before a job interview, it cleared my skin for the small pimples and the large one definitly decreased in size and lost redness, enough that it could be concealed.
it felt like it was working as soon as i applied it. It was tingling and made my skin feel very clean. It didnt iritate my skin or make it very dry like others i have tried. Rubs into skin well and doesnt have an awful chemical smell. will keep buying
quite expensive, almost $14 for a small tube.
This product really didn't have good performance. I would have expected it to treat pimples as the advertising suggests. I wouldn't buy it again and I thought it was a waste of money. Clean and clear was much better than this product
Readily available at the supermarket and chemist. Reasonably priced. Might be suitable for some skin types. Well known brand for teenagers with skin problems and acne.
This product did not seem to clear the pimples up at all. I found it dried my skin out alot. Other products at the same price range were better in helping get rid of pimples.
It works well for me, but I've heard that it doesn't work well unless you don't have serious acne. Well, I've never had any serious acne issues.
Works well to clear up a couple of pimples quickly.
Dries up the skin if you use it alot.
I've tried a lot of acne products. While this didn't work for me in the past it started to help clear my skin when i used it after i cleansed with Cetaphil. I continue to use it as a spot treatment anytime i get a pimple come up. What i realised though is that this isn't suitable for cystic acne, all it will do is dry out the skin around it.
This worked for me when used after cleansing with cetaphil
Expensive for a small tube. If it gets on your clothes or towels or anything will stain/get bleach type marks.
Questions & Answers
Works great, but then all of a sudden my face is real bad.
