Works pretty good, didn't work as fast as I would like, but I was able to notice a difference if I used it on a certain spot a few times. Probably going to repurchase.

Wow! Love this pimple cream! It works better than anything I’ve ever tried! I bought it from Amazon and I love it! The price was totally worth it. Very impressed!

Breakout? Dab this stuff on before bed and bam! In the morning they are pretty much dried out. I've gone through 2 bottles and onto my third. Love this spot treatment!

I like this! Super cute packaging. Does a decent job. I just hate how messy it is when you sleep..the pink dust gets everywhere and is hard to get off of your face too

This drying lotion is my favorite product for acne of all time. It takes care of almost any blemish over night and all you have to do is dot it on with a cotton swab.

I'm torn between MD and KS drying lotion. They both smell but also addictive. It gives you a sensation and satisfying feeling of popped pimple but at least it's safer than actually popping one!

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 🙂
