My experience: It comes in a clear gel form and has a typical medicinal smell, though not very strong. After cleansing my face, I dot this gel on the areas where I’ve acne scars and pimples. It gives a very mild tingling sensation when applied and the skin might turn red after its usage. It gets completely absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave any sticky feeling behind. It does work on breakouts and the size of pimples & acne starts reducing from the very first usage, but it takes about 7-8 days to completely clear pimples & acne. It also helps in fading acne marks but you need to be patient to see visible results. We tested this acne gel on 3 people – my 19 yrs old niece, myself and my husband and the results varied for each of us. Its results can vary from person to person and also depends on the type of acne you have. You can give this acne star gel a try if you get breakouts occasionally and in case you have severe acne I will suggest consulting with a dermatologist before using it.

Pros of Acne Star Gel:

  • It is formulated with Clindamycin and Nicotinamide that are known for their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • It does a pretty good job in clearing minor breakouts and also prevent their reoccurrence.
  • Quite effective in clearing pimples, acne and also helps in fading acne marks when used frequently over a period of time.
  • It didn’t cause further breakouts to my skin.
  • It is ideal to use by teens and adults as well.
  • Suitable for all skin types (oily, dry, combination, or normal).
  • Very affordable.
  • Easily available.

Cons of Acne Star Gel:

  • The skin can turn slightly red after its usage.
  • It will not clear acne in just one go, it will take days, weeks or sometimes months to see visible results.
  • Its skin brightening claims are not true(it is not going to make your skin brighter or whiter).


Given below are the frequently asked questions about Acne Star Gel and I’m going to share my personal experience. Please understand its results can vary from one person to another. It worked for my skin but it doesn’t mean it will work the same way for your skin too. I highly recommend consulting a dermatologist before starting any kind of anti-acne treatment. (I tried my best to answer all the queries, I hope my review will help you).

  13. Yes, AcneStar ointment from Mankind Pharma is very effective on acne and pimples. I get these of and on and though I have used the Acne-Pimple Cream from Himalaya before (which wasn’t effective at all, in my case), I found AcneStar cream does treat acne-pimples well, over 3-4 days though. I have a very oily skin and hence I use this cream on breakouts, which heal over a few days of use twice a day.

I have spent HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS on various acne treatments, and this is the ONLY product I have used in the past 5 years that totally cleared my skin. It took a little time (about a month and a half) for my skin to clear completely, but I couldn’t be more thrilled. I will continue to purchase this product FOREVER. Thank you so much!
