Great dupe for the Kate Somerville one! It's really cheap but super effective. Definetely does minimize the size of the pimple and also the redness. It doesn't completely make the pimple go away but it helps the process.

Use this when I get a breakout and it has become something frequent for me. I love how effective it is and the price is very affordable. The packaging is nice because it goes with all the other packaging from the brand.

This drying lotion is the best when it comes to getting rid of a unexpected pimple. It's effective and inexpensive! It's my second time buying this little vile and will buy again. It's the perfect step towards clear skin.

I truly love this product! It honestly works so well and it comes in a cute little bottle. It is a little harsh on the skin but it is so so effective and I see products the morning after I use it. The only con is the smell of the product but I truly love it!

This stuff is AMAZING! It's helps to quickly shrink any blemishes (most of the time in two nights if not simply overnight) it's something I will constantly repurchase and ALWAYS have in my cabinet as part of my routine.

It's the holy grail. If I feel a huge pimple coming under the skin. I take a qtip and damp some of this solution on it and when I wake up it's gone. Just make sure you don't shake the solution it needs to stay separated!

One of my favorite spot treatments! This is the only one I'll use that isn't a mask. It lasts for a decent amount of time and doesn't irritate my skin like other spot treatments have in the past. It also isn't too drying.

this is definitely a drying lotion for oily skin. I got a couple of samples of this and it works great on my trouble spots. I definitely recommend to oily skin users, but the price is a bit high. I would definitely buy if my trouble spots got worse.
