Q: Do I use it as an overnight thing or just for a while and then wash it off? I’m so confused

submitted by Vanessa - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi Vanessa! You do not have to wash this off. Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin. So wash your face then apply a thin layer over the affected area. You can do this up to 3 times a day. Hope this helps!

Q: How would you use this product? As a spot treatment or a all over moisturizer?

submitted by Izamar00 - 6 years ago
  • A: As the person above mentioned it's to be used as a spot treatment. Now that being said it's not a moisturizer and I only apply it all over if I have a lot of breakouts all over my have but with that apply every other day, if you're going to apply all over your face. This dries out the skin so use a little at a time.

    submitted byAlexandria - 6 years ago
  • A: Hi there! This product is meant to be used as a spot treatment. Just apply a thin layer over the affected area. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

Q: I have dry skin and sometimes get these little pimples that really hurt. I know this isn't meant for dry skin, but would it be safe for me to use this just on the pimples and then moisturize after?

submitted by Sarah - 7 years ago
  • A: Hey Sarah! You can absolutely use this product, but we recommend reducing your application to every other day if dryness or peeling occurs. We also don't recommend using this product if you have sensitive skin. To moisturize check out our Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, it doesn't contain any acne fighting ingredients so it'd be perfect to use with our Persa-Gel. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Q: is it "clear" (transparent) or white?

submitted by Kevin - 3 years ago

I can say this stuff works and is my original goto since I can remember. If I happen to have a bad breakout I use this. I usually see results within 24hrs after putting it on the area. Doesn’t irritate nor dry out my skin an I have sensitive skin, which I would recommend to those. You don’t even need a lot of product just a tiny dot.

Does not work on the first try or the 3rd. Burned the corners of my eyes even though I applied it near my temples and cheek. Made my skin dark from the burns. I did use a face lotion with this as directed especially since I have dry and sensitive skin.

I usually don’t write reviews but had to! I have extremely sensitive skin and woke up on Monday morning with a zit right in the middle of my chin, under my bottom lip. I used this product consistently. 3x a day for 3 days and my zit was gone. Incredible. This product tends to dry the pimple/zit out, and then i would rinse my face at night with a simple cleanser. Consistency is key here. 10/10

Holy Grail

Holy grail for me, one of the main things that works and quickly. Wish there was a similar benzol peroxide face wash. Neutrogena recently did away with 10% benzol peroxide face wash and every since I can't find a face wash that works for me. My face has been broken out since the day it was discontinued. Please please please come out with a fash wash to go with this persa -gel

Staining my clothes

hanna - 1 year ago
It does its job and on the box it says you’ll see results within one day, which I definitely agree with that! unfortunately for me, i’m using it a little bit above my thighs (ladies you know) & i noticed it’s staining my underwear. i have a brown pair that the inside is now stained orange due to this cream. kinda odd, so be careful with putting it on & putting clothes over it!

I never leave reviews here but this product has burned my skin so be careful. After a few days I started noticing dark and dry looking spots around the area I used it. Now I have to worry about getting rid of this dark marks.

This worked for me in moderation. Because the dosage is 5 times the normal amount know that it can cause adverse reactions. For those who purchased this for preteens, fair & sensitive skin, or expected results after one or two applications - your expectations were illogical. Rethink the strength & who is using it then try a more conservative approach w/ 2%, every other day or every 3-4 days. Use a dot of product & gently massage in. Be gentle on skin & don’t be rough with a towel when drying after showers or face washing. I’ve used 2% for years off & on & this dosage as well. Patience is important along with gentle treatment of your complexion. Good luck!

The product did not work at all for me. I used multiple days (about 3) and the blemishes only got worse not the slightest bit better, even if they were small. I’d return it but I misplaced the packaging. Won’t be buying again.

Hello! My daughter tried after I spent time researching. I want to give it 5 stars for clearing up the minimal acne she had on her forehead. However, two days into it her cheeks turn red and her whole face is covered by what I can only describe as goosebumps. It's so strange. I told her to immediately stop using this lotion to see if it is the culprit.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] #sponsored by @HomeTesterClub to try and review the Persa-Gel 10 by Clean and Clear. Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication Spot Treatment with benzoyl peroxide targets pimples to help clear skin and prevent breakouts. The fragrance-free face gel quickly goes to work by releasing benzoyl peroxide deep in pores where pimples begin to effectively treat acne breakouts and help prevent them from occurring in the future. This topical acne treatment gel is a thick white cream thats so easy to apply, dries pretty quickly, and felt light weight on my skin. I saw visible results overnight. It works just as well as prescription medication. And the price is on point.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was hoping this acne gel would work but unfortunately it just made my skin angry. My 17 year old cousin tried it and it worked great. I guess it just depends on how your skin reacts.

GREAT fast-acting acne spot treatment!!

5 out of 5 stars
- 2 years ago
originally posted on Home Tester Club
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I suffer from intermittent acne that can range anywhere from mild to severe, deep, and cystic. This spot treatment is perfect for treating breakouts (QUICKLY) especially if you catch it early!! I've always bought the generic version of this product and I am thoroughly impressed by the real deal. There truly is a difference. The Persa-Gel 10 applies and absorbs easily and is very effective. The generics I've tried are difficult to apply and take forever to absorb (if it ever does). I especially love that it is fragrance free as I prefer my skincare products (especially those that aren't rinsed off immediately)to be as "clean" as possible and definitely free of fragrance. Two thumbs up!
