I love this product! I used to have it a few years ago and just recently purchased it again. I forgot how much I loved it. This really helps killing pimple before they get horrible. It's a bit drying but I have oily skin so I need it.

This product works pretty well. Although my pimple was gone the next day, it was noticeably smaller and less noticeable on my face. I didn't like that the drying lotion rubbed off while I was sleeping.

As it has been said before this is an excellent product for raised whiteheads as it completely erases any spots from the day before. I use this overnight to quickly clear up any spots that may appear.

If you find yourself with a pimple apply this a little goes a long way but it will be the best thing you did! Literally the next day it's gone! Love this company and all the products they have to offer!

My holy grail spot treatment! When I apply this to a pimple it reduces in size DRAMATICALLY overnight and reduces redness. It doesn't leave me with any dark marks after like other brands I have tried.

I love mario badescu skincare but this just fell short for me. I didn't really notice any difference in my acne using this. I noticed more by just using tea tree oil so I can't really say I like this.

Must have for every girl that ever experience a pimple. No need to sacrifice all your face with irritating products when you can spot treat. Use it at night and the next day pimple is so much smaller !

I have never had a disappointed experience while using Mario Badescu drying lotion. It gets the job done in no time! This is not my first rodeo using the drying location and I will never change brands!

This works so well! A great spot treatment that helps reduce pimples in their tracks! You look a little wacky with pink spots on your face, but worth it! Very gentle on skin, as opposed to prescription treatments. Great for sensitive skin, and sold at lots of different places.

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 🙂
