Everyone should own this period. Been using this for over 15years now. Banishes acne before it comes if you apply it at the fist sign. Also speeds up a break out if you wait too long before applying. Just remember do not shake!

This product is magic. If you use a qtip, dip it into the product, and apply to a blemish before going to bed, its almost completely if not gone by the morning! It drys the blemish right out and heals it immediately!

This works great if you have a breakout that is trying to come in. When I feel one trying to break through the skin, I dab this on it with a Q Tip and go to sleep. When I wake up in the morning, the blemish is already gone!
