A great spot treatment for acne! I suffer from minor stress and diet pimples here and there and this definitely helps "dry" the pimple out faster. This product is gentle on your skin and harsh on pimples.

I would totally recommend you go buy this i repurchase this at least every month depending on how much I use it. Which is usually only when I get a pimple and want it to go away this usually always helps!

Such an amazing product! The price is great and it completely rids your face of any random blemishes you happen to get. The only place I've ever found this brand is at ulta. I would recommend this to everyone!

This product really works! It didn’t completely make my blemishes disappear but it caused them to shrink quite a bit! I applied it before bed and woke up with significantly smaller and less red blemishes!

I use this product whenever I feel like I have a pimple coming out or already have one. It makes the blemish noticeably smaller overnight! It's not a complete miracle worker, but it does make a difference.

I love this stuff! This is great for getting rid of zits quick. It last so long too which is something else i love because it makes it worth the price. I purchased this from Ulta and I would buy it again.

This is a really great product but the only thing I can't stand is the sulfuric smell it has. The results are amazing though my skin feels softer and less oily! I will definitely keep buying this product!

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 🙂
