First time trying this product and I didn't have a lot of faith. Nothing really clears out my breakouts overnight but this product is great! It clears my huge breaks outs in 3 days! Reducing the redness and size!

I absolutely love this! Dries my acne so quickly and the best part of all is that it's gentle on my skin and doesn't leave scars. Put it on before bed and leave it on overnight to wake up to your acne vanished!

This product is a miracle in a bottle! If you discover you have an awful zit just put this on before bed and in the morning it's almost as if never existed. It shrinks the zit and takes away the redness. I will forewarn you it stings a bit when first applied but once it dries you hardly notice it's on minus the pink color!

This drying remedy has worked really well in the past for my skin! It definitely helps with drying out zits quickly to get them to go away. I hate going through the scab phase of a zit though, so this doesn't always help zap it immediately.

Did not like this product. I feel like it made the pimples on my face even fiercer they would hurt more and grow new ones right next to the ones I already had. It honestly made my face worse would not recommend

This stuff is phenomenal! I try not to use it often but when I do it disappears within the night. I got it at Ulta. This stuff turned out better than expected and I highly recommend to others. However, try not to use daily.

This dries out whiteheads overnight. I'm kind of disappointed I didn't know about this product way before when I was in highschool. Some might think it's expensive but I think it's worth the price the price because it does its job and lasts a while.

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!!

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 🙂
