    • I love Kate Somerville and swear by all her products. This one, unfortunately, does not work for me. For me, her other acne products work much better than this.

    • This Product is absolutely a life saver when it comes to acne. I pop this on as soon as I feel a pimple starting to rear its ugly head and by the next day its gone! The am side is great for wearing under makeup while helping to clear up blemish. cant recommend enough

    • This product is great for any blemishes you have. I always pop this on as soon as I feel a pimple rearing it's ugly head and the next day it's gone! The am side is great for wearing under makeup too

    • Let's just say, you will really like this product, if you have an interview tomorrow.
      This will clear your (or at least minimize your acne) less than 24 hours.
      You will really like this and this is an emergency helper

    • Does what is on the label. Does not smell bad at all. You can see results in less than 24 hrs.

    • I received this item from a good friend so I decided to give it a try. I have been struggling with acne for a few years now,but once I tried this product everything changed. So far it has been the best acne care product I have ever used. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has acne.

    • Great for little touchups when you have something important the next day. I put it on and the pimples normally gone by the next day

      (Posted on 7/4/14) Review by Joey
    • I really enjoy this product. Every time i see a pimple forming i will put this on. It really helps clear the pimple up faster. I do feel the P.M side works quicker so sometimes if i am not going any where i will put the P.M product on in the morning too. The A.M works good as well. I like that it is clear and I will put this on before my make up. i like knowing i am treating my skin throughout the entire day. i also feel like this is a gentle pimple treatment, so i do not need to worry about it drying out my skin.

    • I do think it works to help those large under skin pimples go away much faster, however, one end broke off before I could use all of the product. I bought it again anyway because it is not expensive and it lasted a while since I don't need it often.

    • I use the AM gel only now. For PM I typically use the KS drying lotion. This PM is good though when I don't want to travel with the glass bottle and worry about it mixing up.

    • I decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did.It was much less than I expected but very good quality.

    • If you have stubborn acne, this is a must try spot treatment product. I get those large acne bumps that seem to take forever to go away. You this treatment faithfully-it really works:)

    • This product worked really well for me and did a great job of punishing my pimples. It also worked really well under my makeup and was effective all day.

      (Posted on 4/20/14) Review by Sarah
    • I've been using this product for about a week, and while I really like the feel of the AM clearing gel and the way it stays on under make-up, I found it difficult to get the right amount of coverage for the treatment clay at night. It just isn't as thick as I was hoping, but with that said I do have to say it's effective!

    • I don't have acne and never have ,however, I do get the occasional pimple from time to time from stress or my monthly visit. I also get a few from waxing etc. I use this right away and within a day it is reduced dramatically and then the next day its gone!

    • After suffering from acne my entire life, I don't think there is any true 24-hour fix. I thought I would give this a try since I've been happy with other Kate products that target acne. I tried this for a couple days and didn't see any "magical" improvement in my bad pimples. I think I will just continue with my regular routine.

      (Posted on 12/27/13) Review by Andrew
    • I love the PM cream - it works like magic! Whenever I have a blemish, I use eradikate once or twice (it really dries out the pimple) and then use this PM cream to help with with the healing process. The AM gel though doesn't really work for me, and the packaging is actually a big issue. So overall, the product is okay - I wish the packaging would be improved, and that you could buy the AM/PM treatments separately.

    • This stuff really works to quickly clear pimples. Within a day or two my pimples are gone. I've been using for two years now.

    • I was a little skeptical at first but the 24 Hour Pimple Punisher is just amazing! It gets rid of my breakouts fast without drying my skin. I've tried other products the claim to do the same thing but nothing works like this one. Will definitely buy again!

      (Posted on 12/14/13) Review by Stephanie
    • From the reviews below, people claimed that EradiKate is better than this one. However, in my point of view, the 24hr pimple punisher is 10 times better than EradiKate. Eradikate dries out my skin real bad but this one does not. I also noticed that some bumps on my forehead disappeared after using 24hr punisher for a week. I wouldn't use this everyday, but it works great on my occasionally break-out pimples. This is indeed an outstanding product.

      (Posted on 12/7/13) Review by Yi Wei
    • I've always been blessed with relatively good skin, although it is sensitive, but when I get spots, they're usually extremely stubborn. This is the only product that adequately beats them into submission and off of my face.

      When I first feel a spot forming, I apply this product. Most of them are gone within a day or two. For the extremely stubborn ones that just refuse to give up, I actually find it works best for me to skip one day with the gel & only use the clay at night, then resume using the gel the next day. I think it's because of my sensitive skin.

      I think my only complaint about this product is the packaging. It is two smaller tubes joined in the middle by a connecting piece. Sometimes, I've had one of the tips of a tube break off into the connecting piece, which means I work without the applicator until I've used up the product. That isn't enough to keep me from going back, though!

      (Posted on 11/28/13) Review by Ashley
    • I have such a hard time choosing between using this product and Eradikate because they're both so amazing. I usually alternate between the two at night and am loving the results. I know people read these reviews and think they are exaggerated but I am telling the truth! I am the perfect example I grew up having horrible skin smearing my face with cover up and since I've purchased the Kate Somerville products I've been getting compliments on my skin - I never thought that would happen. Thanks Kate!

    • Love the AM part. The PM works also on smaller blemishes well and takes down the redness of blemishes which I really like :)

      (Posted on 11/12/13) Review by Megan
    • This product works, but with using other products I've realized that I don't really need to use this all the time. It's good for having on hand for the occasional pimple here and there.

    • Got rid of my breakouts faster than any other product I've used!

      (Posted on 10/13/13) Review by Brittany
    • Really good product, but only half of it is actually useful. I love the AM, it's so nice to have something to layer under my make up and go undetected. Definitely makes me feel less guilty about putting makeup over recovering skin. However, you should wait a minute or so before putting any make up over the gel as it can flake otherwise and turn into a bit of a disaster. Also note: VERY important to moisturize SUPER WELL with this product and exfoliate as necessary. This + Night treatment = Really good results, but if you do not keep the skin hydrated, you will end up with flakey dry patches where the pimples used to be.

      As for the PM, and the reason I detracted two stars.. The product itself isn't bad, but for me, it just isn't anywhere near as effective as the Eradikate is. So instead of using one product for two purposes, I end up buying two products, one of which is meant to serve both, and end up wasting half of this tube.

      Note to Kate: PLEASE make an AM-only product!! I would love you so much!

      Note to Buyers: Be VERY gentle when you twist the tubes on and off, I've broken more than one of the plastic cones that way (if this happens, Nordstrom will replace for free, otherwise, just keep using the product, it usually doesn't dry out).

    • Im not sure why but the nossel gets stuck in the cap and breaks. Then the product gets dried out :(

    • I used this for about a month before moving on. It just did not do that much for my acne. Maybe this was meant for younger skin. I was not wowed by the product though.

      (Posted on 7/25/13) Review by Sherry
    • The A.M formula is very light, with no scent and is completely transparent on the skin. The P.M formula I LOVE! It works very well overnight and reduces the size of the pimple.
      The way it's packaged also makes it very convenient to travel with.

      (Posted on 7/2/13) Review by Dawn
    • I love this product because it's small and portable. It's come in handy when I'm on the go and notice a pimple beginning to appear as I can treat it right then and there.

    • It got rid of some of the redness but the pimple was there. Tho ingot the product a few days after I broke out so maybe that was part of the issue?

      (Posted on 6/1/13) Review by Lauren
    • I couldn't believe it when I woke up the next morning after using the PM and found the little spot I'd put it on was completely GONE. I'm serious! It was no longer there at all (and I'm pretty sure I hadn't hallucinated it). LOVE the AM treatment as well. AM works just as well as the PM! I would buy this anytime and recommend it to anyone. It truly does work!

    • I really like this product! It works well!! So simple to use and travel with. Both the am and pm sides are great ! Does not dry my skin out or make it oily.

    • I can't really tell if this product really works. I use a few other Kate Somerville spot treatments that seem to do a better job. Not my favorite product.

    • This product is Great. It has salcilic acid instead of Benzol Peroxide which I am allergic to. It seems to clear up the acne almost imediately and has not dryed out my face!

      (Posted on 1/9/13) Review by Dawne
    • This product seems to work almost immediately. I have not been using it more than a few days, but I think I have found a great product. My skin is not flaky dry where I have used it, nor is it red. However, it has slowly shrunk my acne from other skin products (I have SUPER sensitive skin). I have only used it for two days and I can already see a difference. As I wrote on my other review, it may be too soon to weigh in, but I am happy so far!

      (Posted on 1/6/13) Review by Teresa
    • I needed to try this product just because! The one complaint i had was the container, BOTH ends broke on me!! But the product itself was okay, i dont see the need in this though if you use eradikate, one or the other works just fine!

      (Posted on 1/2/13) Review by Chelsea
    • I have very sensitive, problem, oily skin but this product is amazing! I've tried pretty much everything on the market and have found that it either doesn't work, or causes a bad reaction (like breakouts, rashes, itchy eyelids, etc). This spot treatement works right away. I can't live without it!

      (Posted on 5/29/12) Review by Stephanie
    • My skin always breaks out about once a week. I was very excited to get this product to have 24 hour control over my skin. However when I tried the 24 hour pimple punisher it didn't really help my complexion. Overall I was disappointed by the product and I wish that there had been more reviews, not only positive ones being posted.

    • This really does what it says! even my deeper cystic spot are noticeably less by the morning. I woke up after the first application and my deeper cystic spots around my jaw line had stopped hurting, I think the clay had dried them up over the night. They had also faded and were sooo much smaller. I didn't even think this was possible, usually nothing works.
      I love the am side, because u can wear it under you concealer and know that it's changing your skin throughout the day.

      If my deep cystic acne is seeing a judge difference I can only image the dreams that it's doing to smaller spots!

      My new Kate must have!
