The emergency pimple cream that lives in my nightstand. Similar to the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, but stays on much better and doesn’t end up all over your pillowcase. If it seems to dry out, you just need to top it off with isopropyl alcohol from the drugstore!

I recently had a bumper crop of chin zits (what did Tina Fey call them? Chacne?) and it's pretty embarassing at my age! What made them worse is that they immediately "scabbed over" and just looked even worse with makeup. This product didn't make them go away overnight, but I did notice an immediate improvement. Within 2 days, they were pretty much dried up. After 3 days, I still have one stubborn hanger-on zit, but that's better than the 6 or 7 I was sporting about a week ago. This product stings like the devil, and it smells pretty rough. (Sulphur? Yes indeed.) Oh, and you will look silly -- little white dots on all your pimples! But it's worth it to dry them up quickly!

This is not a miracle treatment and does not clear up acne overnight... but it clears up pimples way faster, especially the really bad gross ones. It stings for a minute if the pimple is open, and you'll feel silly with dots all over your face. It has a strong smell at first but dries fast. I highly recommend this stuff and am glad I found it on birchbox!

Wonderful spot treatment. Helps prevent problems spots from blowing up full force. Need to apply it at night as it is visible. Drying so make sure to moisturize skin. Packaging was a bit tricky since you can’t shake the jar and mix the ingredients. But it has prevented a few face disasters so far, so will purchase again.

This drying lotion was highly effective. I found that pimples went from enormous and red to barely visible in about 2 days. Just make sure not to shake the bottle and do apply overnight.

This is an interesting product. You dip a Qtip into the sediment in the bottle and apply as needed before bed. If there is residue in the morning, wash it off.

I largely credit this product with saving my skin - it's exceptional for taming those unruly pimples that appear mid-afternoon - sleeping with a coat of this in can do wonders, and always reduces redness and soreness. Honestly, it's got a bit of a hefty price tag, but is so worthwhile.
