Did nothing for me but i didn't apply very regularly
Bearing in mind i had previously used neutrogena's legendary drying gel (hasn't been available in Australia for at least a decade) this product was a massive let down.
I didn't pay attention to redness much, but i think it did lessen the redness (i dumped it a while ago) and not much else. no matter how much or how little i apply, it doesn't dry down the pimple like the neutrogena one did, it doesn't harden it or in any way help to get rid of my pimples. i didn't even feel like it formed a skin over the pimple like the neutrogena one did, even tho this one specifically claims to form a layer.
I thought i only needed one application but when i read the instructions, it said i should apply it every day. even that didn't make a difference tho, a pimple i applied this gel to, would stay on my face for just as long as a pimple which i hadn't applied the gel too, sometimes longer, because i can't resist trying to pop them.
i would never repurchase this for myself, but it might work on someone with different skin to mine.

I've found this a great product for reducing the inflammation of pimples. It doesn't clear the pimple up completely, as there is still the pimple visible, but the size of the size of the bump and the redness and soreness is greatly reduced. I'm sure it also speeds up the healing as a result.
The gel consistency helps provide a thick coating, but it does ball up if you apply makeup over the top. I tend to use this as a spot treatment at night, so it works its magic overnight.

Reduces redness but that's about all
Really liked the idea of this product, that it would put a protective seal over the pimple to help it clear up faster.
I found that it reduced the redness of my breakouts a little but definitely didn't clear it up any faster.
For me it was also impossible to use this under makeup or even moisturiser, even after I gave it plenty of time to I would apply makeup the gel would peel and flake off, so I only use it at night before bed

Helps clear skin up
This wasn't quite the wonder product I had expected, but I still like it. I found it wasn't at all helpful with under the skin pimples (which is what I mostly get), but for regular break outs it definitely helped clear my skin up. The main problem is that I was most keen to use it for its claims of creating a seal over the pimple so you can put makeup on over the top without making it worse. Unfortunately for me I found the 'seal' tended to rub off as I put makeup on over it, or else after an hour or so it would start peeling off and look like I had really dry skin in places.. not a good look. So whilst I couldn't use it for what I'd hoped, I still found it to be a successful product when used alone on skin, preferably when sleeping. Overall, a pretty good product!

it worked but......
I really have a mixed opinion about this product. I have found that it work pretty well on pimple that are about to form, especially those big nastie sore ones i get every once and a while for no reason at all. However my skin does not like this product, i have had instances where after using it my skin has actually peeled off a big chunk and left a really raw spot. Another time i got an irratation on a patch of skin that still has not gone away. So when i feel a pimple coming up i dont know whether to use this product because I am not sure getting irrations makes it worth it ?

Does not perform a 4 hr miracle but does reduce redness and seals the pimple off.
I had very high hopes that the product would work in 4 hours but was disappointed with that claim. However it did reduce the redness and swelling of the pimples over a day or so and it did heal at a much faster rate than they normally take to heal. Also loved that it sealed off the pimple from bacteria and it did reduce the pain and irritation I normally feel when I have a pimple. I did not like the tube as it was difficult to estimate how much of the product would come out when squeezed. Often too much of product came out. Considering its a really small tube there was a lot of wastage and would like better control in removing exactly how much product I need with a more tapered tip rather than a lip gloss kind of tube that it is. The acne scarring was also reduced compared to normal which was a plus. I did feel a slight burning sensation which went away after a few minutes.

I hardly suffer from pimples but when i do get the odd one it can be quite the pimple!! Normally clearasil products don't work well on my skin because I suffer allergic reactions so when I saw this I was a bit unsure but was keen on giving it a go!
I recently got a pimple on my chin which became quite nasty. It would scab over and was impossible to cover with foundation because it wouldn't stop watering! My chin looked very scabby and was quite painful too.
After removing the scab and applying this over the affected area it immediately helped the redness and stopped the watering!
If only I was able to discover this product sooner because it works miracles! I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow it will be healed.

I love the cute packaging of the little tube although I would much prefer the roll on metal balls and pen applicators. When it comes to removing pimples I would like as little skin contact as possible as germs are easily spread around the face. Yes, this product does work but it takes longer than expected to actually see results. It takes me around three to four and sometimes five applications for the pimple to actually dry up and flatten down (if that makes sense). I don't think I will buy this again if I finish it, which will take a while as only a little bit is needed in one use and there is quite a lot in the tube.

I didn't really like this product, I noticed that yes I did do a little for my pimples, but not as much as I would have hoped. I like how it does protect the zit from bacteria, and I am constantly checking to see if it has gone down, but was disappointed by the over all out come.

My skin suffers from under-the-skin red pimples, so unfortunately this product wasn't able to conquer them! I am very fond of the concept though - creating a protective barrier over the pimple so that no further bacteria can get in and make it even worse. Perhaps if I suffered from whiteheads then it would be effective, but unfortunately I didn't experience a great deal of success with it.
