Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best targeted spot treatment I have tried many products for topical spot treatment but I keep returning to this one. I use it overnight on the spots and reapply 2-3 times during the day. My blemishes are usually gone in a couple of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little tool helps to reduce the swelling of any spots you have, also seems to dry them out in a way so they heal faster. I didnt find it had much of an impact on big cystic spots but on smaller ones definitely worth seeing if it works for you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for individual flare ups This has worked really well to help control my Maskne (working as a clinician in a clinical mask all day had led to acne on my lower face where the mask rubs that was not there before these C-19 precautions were in place). This is great for individual flare up, reduces in size within a day and continued use gets individual spots to go away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps spots to heal faster with less scarring. Will continue to re-purchase! Great product from La Roche-Posay which I have re-purchased a few times now. It does not stop spots but it definitely helps to get rid of them faster. Angry red spots are calmer after first application, scars seem to heal better and leaves me with clearer skin. The cream helps to dry out spots which can sometimes cause skin to flake over big spots but this usually disappears within a day or two. I use this in conjunction with LRP effaclar duo+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Tube of miracles! I bought this 3 weeks ago as I have been suffering with Menopausal cystic acne on my chin for the past 2 years and have even tried antibiotics (which helped keep the dreaded painful lumps at bay for a while). I usually get these lumps which last for 3-4 weeks at a time and just as soon as they start to go, another set rear their heads!! I bought this cream with high hopes after much research and my goodness am I glad I did. This little miracle seriously works! It calms the redness after about 10 minutes and when applied morning and night, has stopped the lumps in their tracks:) My skin is now clear for the first times in years and as soon as I feel a lump appearing I apply an extra dose of this cream and it completely goes away. I am SUPER happy with the results and would urge anyone with cystic acne to give this cream a try - you will not be disappointed!! I have now bought the face wash, toner and duo + and can't recommend this range enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I was getting quite distressed about my adult acne especially on my chin. Only been using it for a few days and my skin has improved a lot and so has the redness and soreness. I will be purchasing the cleanser and moisturizer too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore this Love it! Suffered hugely from hormonal spots after a nurse insisted on changing my medication. After 6 months of wasting 1 week out of 4, hiding away with massive red spots, I discovered this. I had tried so many creams which dried spots out but did little to stop the redness. This however is a miracle cream: it stops spots in their tracks. I now start using it a couple of days ahead of time and now have not seen a single spot! Fabulous stuff. Don’t suffer in misery - give this a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non greasy This was recommended to me by a skin specialist in London. He said that La Roche- Posay was he only brand, and I would be wasting my money on others. I have never looked back and my skin improved and has stayed good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I was a little hesitant in purchasing this as it's more that I would usually pay for a spot treatment cream, but after reading the reviews decided I would give it a go. I'm so glad I did! It absorbs into the skin really well, meaning you can apply it before make-up and it doesn't peel off like other gel formulas I've used before. My skin wasn't bad before but I genuinely think it helps prevent spots as my skin has been clearer since using it. I now may go on to try the other La Roche-Porsay products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally somthing that works! I have tried every type of spot/acne over the counter treatment out there and this is the best you can buy. Definitely worth a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says This product is very easy to apply under make up. Within a week of using it, I was noticing the positive benefits. 10 days later, the spots and blemishes have gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the price put you off! Although this product is pretty pricey, it's the only thing that's cleared up my troubled skin. I have always suffered with blemishes and I got to the point in January where I was so down and upset about them. I took the chance on this and now I cannot live without it. A little goes a long way and this tube has lasted me 6 months so it is good value for money. Don't let the price put you off, you really get results with this. I just wish I had brought it sooner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results My 16 yr old has the usual teen skin. He washes, exfoliates moisturises and uses a mask - has a healthy diet and drinks lots of water - everything you should do. Unfortunately he is plagued with breakouts. So I decided to pay more for a product hoping the results would improve. They have. He uses the LaRoche face wash, exfoliant and now the blemish cream. Results are clear to see. Worth paying that little bit more to see clearer skin and a smile

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really works! for single bigger spots I can't recommend this highly enough. It's my 3rd tube I use and it last really long. Can be used under make up. I always buy another when I run out of this, best spot working treatment I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I've been using some of the La Roche-Posay products for about 6-9 months which have improved my skin anyway. I purchased the Targeted Breakout Corrector after my skin started to suffer after being stressed out and my diet being poor. I used the cream twice a day on my worst areas for about 2 days and the spots really started to clear up. After continuing to use it for a further couple of days the spots had pretty much cleared up with little to no marking and having not reached the gross point of about to pop. Will definitely continue to use this and purchase in future if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective When applying it to individual spots and blemishes, it really does clear them up quickly. It is best used over night rather than for the daytime as it is a cream and best left to absorb by itself.
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. I bought this after seeing it in an article in a magazine. I've been suffering with spots for the last few months, and despite a good skin care routine the spots just kept coming. I bought this, and within 15 mins the change s were visible, redness had reduced and the area became smoother No more hiding behind lots of concealer for me!
Date published: 2015-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust this One of the very few brands I now trust. Good quality and effective. Will continue to use this regime (see the facial wash and toning spray). Ignore the slightly odd consistency and enjoy the effects.
Date published: 2015-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I've wanted to try La Roche Posay products for a long time and thought I'd test this first as I had a stubborn breakout that wouldn't go away. Low and behold… this did the trick! I was impressed and will definitely be trying out more of the range.
Date published: 2015-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works An excellent product that rapidly clears up skin blemishes that do not respond to other treatments and can be used on highly sensitive skin too.
Date published: 2015-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic spot fix! Bought this on the back of reading other reviews, I have to say it is brilliant. I had several really painful spots on my chin that I wanted to reduce as much as possible before a party. I used it twice on the day of the party and the redness reduced massively, the pain was gone and when I put makeup over the top, you could hardly tell there were spots there! It took 3 days of application to get rid of them completely, but was so impressed with how quickly they cleared up for the party! Will definitely buy this again, and it smells nice too : )
