This is my go to spot treatment! It's gentle on my skin especially on my sensitive skin and breakout spots. It does come in a glass bottle which makes me nervous for travel but it's definitely worth it for how great the product works

Love this! I usually apply this at night on any noticeable pimples before I go to bed and just let it stay on and wash it off when I wake up. Does wonders. It a very good product and I would recommend it to others.

I bought this because I read that Kylie Jenner swears by it, and I think it works well enough to keep using. I'm not acne prone, unless it's hormonal, and I don't think this works enough to block my period pimples

They say no product will make a zit disappear over night but they're wrong - THIS will. White heads, clogged pores, cysts are no match against a q tip covered in this. An amazing emergency product to keep on hand!

This product works wonders! You put it on your acne before you go to sleep, wake up and it's all gone the next morning. You also don't need a lot either, and the packaging is great. I would and am buying it again!

This is a miracle worker on my acne spots. I leave it on overnight and maybe even the next day and the acne just refuses to appear! I always panic when I feel a pimple and can't find my drying lotion!

I've heard a lot about this drying lotion or like other girls call it "pimple cream". How many of you have tried it and honestly have had a good out come? Would be nice to hear from the girls next door 🙂
