This definitely does stop the spots! My first thought was that the tube is so much bigger than similar products I've had in the past, so great value for money. It also has a lovely natural smell, unlike the chemical type smell you can find with others. Cleared up minor spots overnight for my son, I've even used it on my own angry red spots and they looked so much better by morning. So nice to find a natural product to deal with spots, especially on delicate young skin!
