This gel works so quickly and effectively. It took only a few days to see a remarkable difference. Sucks blackheads out. I have tried way toooooo many products. How I wish I heard about this one sooner. Would definitely recommend. Best thing, it does not dry out my skin even on days when I forget to moisturize. Mitch from NY
I forgot I tried this already

What I don't like about this is that the "inactive" ingredients are active... alcohol and tea tree oil....it just seems silly to have a homoeopathic mixture in such a strong base. And my skin doesn't like it either...am going to try a witch hazel based product next.
Some improvement, but not much

I used this gel after an allergic reaction made my skin break out, but didn't see the fabulous results for which I hoped. It dried my skin, which assisted in clearing up the blemishes, but it took nearly a week before I saw any improvement. I'll stick to Stridex!

O.K. no overnight results but I need to put some type of treatment on active pimples
Did not help my breakouts

My boyfriend and myself both have occasional breakouts, so I was looking for a product that could help heal the blemishes faster. However, Pure and Clear did NOT do the job. It comes in the form of a nice transparent gel but it has absolutely no effect. In addition, the product was poorly packaged, the box was torn and the metallic tube was crooked.

My man can not stand the smell so I will not purchase again. As far as the treatment drying out my blemishes fast it usually takes some days and I end up with another scar oh well.
Not really effective

It has a very strong smell. Doesn't work really well for me.

Even though it doesn't work with me, but it does work with my son. So its result really depends on what kind of skin you have. By the way, the smell is not good, just like something is mold。 If it's smell can be improved, it should be excellent.

Didn't know I couldnt use this since I was pregnant. The back says not to use if prego. So I only used it for a while, since I am 17 weeks along now. My acne is horrible so I was trying anything. It does not smell good.

It stinks for one. Absolutely nothing happens with this even the clear areas started to break out so it is not even good for prevention, of even the most superficial acne. let alone a cure. Ordered many things from iherb. They are Excellent! speedy shippng great prices hence the 2 on the review but this product is zero.
