I used to use this religiously.  It is meant to dry out a zit, and normally worked overnight for me.  While it was a nice immediate fix, it was quite drying, so over time my skin didn't love it.  I think that you're better off investing in a long term skin care routine that is going to take care of your skin, than using something as harsh as this repeatedly on your skin.

This stuff has far exceeded my expectations. For the price, I did not expect a miracle worker but I found exactly that. This is incredibly affordable and easy to keep in your purse and use whenever you need it. It's a rollerball applicator that you apply to any zits and it helps clear them up so quickly! I would highly recommend this to anyone that gets the occasional unwelcome zit here and there.

- bought at Target
- perfect for carrying around with you
- super affordable
- actually WORKS

10/10 recommend!

This product did absolutely nothing for me now that could just be me as a person this might work well for someone else it is extremely inexpensive so for the price it's honestly worth a try to see if it is something that will work for you I just found that it made absolutely no difference even after months of use.

I know this product has been discontinued, but, if you can find it online, I definitely recommend it. It's my holy grail zit product. Works SO well. I put it on a pimple at night and it's gone in the morning.

I did not like this product one bit. I don't think it really did anything for me. It was very disappointing in my eyes. I love elf cosmetics but I am not a fan of this product. I would not recommend it.

This doesn't necessarily get rid of zits, but it does help preventing new ones from coming. Whenever I feel a new zit about to form, I'll put this on & the next day it'll have shrunk or left my face. It doesn't really work on existing zits on my skin but it's great at getting rid of ones about to form. I wish the packaging was different so it's more sanitary.

I use this product when I feel a blemish coming on to stop it in its tracks and it works almost every time. If a problem spot appears before I can apply it, it gets rid of my blemish really fast.

How would you compare this product to your other spot treatments? (proactiv, zatzyt, benzol peroxide creams..) And with the rollerball, shouldn't it be sanitized somehow...the other products are squeeze so you can put it on a clean finger or brush and put it on the spot..but this rolls over it so you keep adding onto bacteria and rolling it on your skin again.
