Pros:It works, it's inexpensive, easy to use and lasts quite awhile.
Cons:Not exactly "natural".
The Bottom Line: For occasional blemishes, this stuff works GREAT!
Everyone needs something from time to time that helps with a blemish or breakout. I have tried all of the drugstore and natural/organic blemish treatments and some are okay, some are good, but this Avon Clearskin Blemish Clearing Spot Treatment seems to be one of the best on the market. It's so good, that when I order it, I order multiple tubes because my husband and teenage daughter will take the tube I have (because they also love it).

I have tried many products on blemishes liketea tree oil, sulphur, witch hazel, and benzoyl peroxide. The best thing that seems to work for me is salicylic acid, but not all products with salicylic acid are created equal. This brand made by Avon, is the BEST. I prefer a spot treatment because I don't get blemishes often, and I don't need an all-over facial treatment (or cream) and I don't need to use something like Oxy Pads (those seem to dry out my face). I just need it for exactly what the title says; a blemish or spot.
The ingredients are; Active ingredient; Salicylic acid, 2.0%. The inactive ingredients are; Water/Eau, SD alcohol 40-B, propylene glycol, ethoxydigycol, trideceth-9, hydroxyethylcelluslose, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ extract, punica granatum fruit juice, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) extract, xanthan gum, disodium EDTA, ammonium hydroxide, and fragrance. This isn't exactly "natural" by any means, but it does work.
This sells for $5.49 on the Avon website, but they do have deals in online and sales for less (or buy one get one half off, etc.). I always google Avon coupon codes, so sometimes I'll get free shipping coupon codes. When you get your shipment, they send you the latest Avon and Mark catalogs. It comes in a small .5 ounces tube and you just squeeze some onto your finger (or Q-tip) and apply the clear gel to blemish. It lasts for months if you have an ocassional breakout.
Overall, this Blemish Clearing Spot Treatment is great for occasional breakouts. I notice blemishes that pop up will go be gone by the next day (or pretty close to gone). Blemishes that are more difficult will take a couple/to a few nights of treatment to help get rid of them, but it definitely works!
