This is amazing. I bought this after seeing multiple beauty vloggers use it and I immediately realized how awesome it is. I put this on any issue spots on my face before bed and wake up with the issue gone or minimized. I will continue repurchasing this.

this dries out all my pimples and works amazing. if i have a breakout and input this on the next day you wont even be able to tell it was there. great for white heads and hormonal breakouts, not so much cystic acne.

Always reduces my blemishes by the next day! Extremely effective product and easy to use. The only downside is the alcohol-like smell, but overall it is a great product. It can burn if you apply it to an open wound.

I love love love love this! It's definitely a product to use at night, or around the house. Since it has that pale pink ingredient, you really can't leave the house looking crazy! Really does work to diminish pimples.

At first, I used this product allllll wrong, so make sure you read directions. It's a strong product, so definitely best to test on a small spot first. But I have extremely sensitive skin & it didn't irritate it. Great for drying up blemishes overnight.

MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE! I can't believe this stuff! Use it when I need something gone the next day. It even works within a few hours for smaller blemishes. I keep this in my bathroom with its own little box of q tips!

This spot treatment for me personally works best when I feel a blemish starting. It's gentle on a blemish that hasn't been picked. It should not be applied to a blemish that has been picked as it burns like crazy.
