The only acne spot treatment that truly shrinks if not completely kills any and all pimples! It's amazing! It dries them right up! It is absolutely worth the money I will never use another spot treatment again

I love this and will swear by it! Only gripe is that it contains alcohol but it is a true zit zapper and even comes in a glass bottle which feels nice it exceeded my expectations and would definitely use again

I love this stuff. It's super affordable and works so good. I just put a little bit on a pimple that just came or that's starting to come and after a night of this being on the pimple it looks so much better.

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.

This stuff really tries out your pimples. The pimple won't be completely gone the next day but it will be less big. It will also try out the pimple. I would totally recommend this as a spot treatment for acne.

Whenever I have a breakout underneath the skin and it starts to swell I always put this on at night. The following morning it seems to have shrunken down and is nowhere near as red. This is a true life saver.

This is the best product out there for any pimples or soon to be pimples you may have! I apply it at night before going to sleep & it keeps my breakouts at bay. I bought mine from ulta & would definitely recommend it to anyone who breaks out.

This acne spot treatment greatly reduces the appearance of acne spots over night! It is amazing how much your spots go down over just one night! Comes at a great price for how amazing this spot treatment is!
