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 !

Like I said about the spray I wish it was strong for my skin I just need this product but stronger it takes a lot of time for my white heads to get dry with this and it’s supposed to be fast, other than that I use it a lot everytime I see a white head!

I haven't noticed it so much, everyone says they wake up and their blemishes have shrunk dramatically, but I don't see a difference between when I put it on and when I wake up in the morning. Oh we'll lol

This product works well at minimizing specific pimples and is very nice quality. It stings when first applied but seems necessary. It is a good value although a little on the expensive side. I would recommend this product to a friend.

A really good product. Cheap and great for teens for Christmas presents. Just makes sure to moisturize with a mist/spray afterwards obviously because it’s a drying lotion. It’s also good to use daily.

This stuff works miracles on my breakouts. I put it on overnight and wake up to much better skin without having to pop anything or cause scarring. The only negative is that it has to be used over night.

Everyone raves about this product but the second I opened this bottle and put the tiniest bit on my face, I took it right off because it smelled so horrible. I read a ton of reviews and no one ever talks about the smelll. Maybe they were able to look past it, but I wasn't.

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 🙂
