I have mixed reviews on this dry lotion. About a year ago I had this product and it worked wonders for my acne. I ran out and then 6 months later I decided to repurchase it and now it's not doing anything for my skin. I don't know if it's because my skin has changed or what, but this product I think is worth a try.

Another drying lotion for pimples. I have used this product and I like it as well. The fact that it's way cheaper than those luxury products and that will also do the job is the best feeling. You have to try it out.

The name describes it perfectly. It targets the area is is applied to and dies it out. I am a repeat user. I always keep it on me. It's not for sensitize skin. It may also cause skin to peel. The price isn't bad.

The price is high but it lasts forever. Way longer than I expected, maybe years. And it works. I'm still on my first bottle. It's gentle enough but gets deep. Effective and I think it helps not to create a scar.

We love this in our household! I have several teenagers that swear by this and I even use it for an occasional surprise from nature! Great packaging. Wide enough to fit a atop when using. Definitely recommend!!

Absolute best pimple spot treatment EVER. I use it before bed on a spot and the next morning it's either gone or shrunk by 50% at least. It's so good I've repurchased it at least 4 times! I definitely recommend

This is one of my Holy Grail products. If I see a pimple forming, I use this overnight and the next day it's no longer there. I especially love it because I don't even feel the hat it's there once it dries down.

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 🙂
