Salicylic Acid Creams

Salicylic acid is a common ingredient in spot and acne creams. It works by opening up clogged pores and neutralizeing the bacteria inside. It also helps reduce the size of the pores, which stops them from clogging up again.

Spot & Acne Cream FAQs

Which spot or acne cream is best for me?

A cream containing salicylic acid is adequate for everyday spots and mild blemishing, especially when combined with a salicylic acid facewash.

Mild to moderate cases of acne vulgaris respond best to a 2.5-5% concentration benzoyl peroxide acne cream. People with severe acne, may wish to consider a 5-10% benzoyl peroxide product, but it is best to seek advice first from a medical professional.

What is the best spot and acne cream?

We get many questions from customers asking "what is the best spot cream?", "what is the best acne cream?", "what is the best cream to get rid of spots?", etc. The truth is that there is no definitive 'best' product, what works best for you, might not work as well for someone else and vice versa. We do, however, have a list of our top ten spot and acne treatments based on customer popularity.

If you are unsure which cream to choose, you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist first. If you would like to speak to a member of our staff, the phone number is 0800 542 1203.
