Here is a review of Clean and Clear Advantage Mark Treatment.
Clean and Clear Advantage Mark Treatment treats pimples fast while diminishing the appearance of post-acne marks. This breakthrough formula is infused with a special oil dissolving technology that allows for delivery of acne medication, Salicylic Acid, to fight breakouts. The unique formula with Glycolic Acid promotes gentle surface skin turnover, improves skin’s clarity and diminishes the appearance of post-acne marks.
Directions For Use:
Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once or even every other day.

My Experience with Clean and Clear Advantage Mark Treatment:
I bought this product for my husband who has been suffering from some really bad acne breakout. I would say I feel okay about the product. Read on to know why. This product does not work miracles, but yes, it certainly does help. With regular use of this product, there has been some improvement. There is a significant reduction in redness of the skin and it does control the spread of acne, but even with use of the whole tube for a month, acne still hasn’t completely gone.
Does not work at all on past acne scars though it does claim to “diminish the look of post acne marks” on the box which is huge disappointment.
This product does dry out the area of skin where applied and you may see some peeling and flaking of skin, so be sure to moisturize . It also makes skin very sensitive in the sun and it is very difficult to apply any other product on top of it including sunscreen which will be problem for us girls when we have to apply makeup.
Another few issues are namely that it does not smell very good, has a very strong chemical scent which sometimes irritates eyes. Another issue is that it may sometimes sting in the area applied.
Overall, I would recommend this to someone who has clean good skin for most times and suffers only from occasional breakouts . This would not help if you suffer from bad case of acne.
