This does not work at all. Very disappointing product. You are supposed to leave it over night for it to work its magic but it does not dry any of my blemishes. Pointless product completely. Not worth the money.

Y'all this product is one of my all top favs. This helps me so much not to scar my face while trying to pop a pimple. I leave it on overnight and by the morning the pimple is gone!!!!!! Also it does burn a bit and then it goes away after 5 seconds

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!!

This product is amazing! It dries out my pimples overnight and helps my skin to stay matte by drying out my face so that it is not super oily! Would highly recommend for those who suffer from occasional pimples!

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.

This is all you need for spot treating acne. You can purchase at stores like Ulta. One little bottle lasts for a long long time. Make sure not to shake it, just dip the q tip into the bottle and you're golden.
