This was just a little disappointing. Some spots it helped with and others I feel like it did nothing at all. I was super excited to try it and just let down a bit

Literally a life saver, it works overnight, I wouldn't use it on a daily basis because it is really drying, but for those pesky pop ups this is your best friend!!!

Was a fan of this awhile ago, but tried this recently and didn't really do anything for me! Was very sad because I used to love it! But maybe it'll work for others

Works like magic overnight. I can put this one a pimple before bed and wake up to it either being gone or significantly smaller great product and will repurchase!

I love the Mario badescu skincare line! I've been using this product for a year now and I can't live without it! This brand is more higher end but it's not expensive. It is a drying lotion but it's not harsh on sensitive skin. It only dries out the blemish not the surrounding skin which is why I love it. If you get a blemish and apply this product on before bed the next day you wake up and it's either completely gone or it's smaller and healing. This product is great for all skin types! Highly recommended it!

Hands down the best skin product I've ever tried!! This stuff is amazing for spot treatment. I use every night before bed and wake up with amazing results. Also, the price is very affordable! I repurchase every time I run out, can't live without it!

Really enjoy Mario Badescu's products! An effective product that works quite rapidly. Smells a bit strange, but is pretty good. Not overpriced & would recommend.

Love this product!! It works literally overnight like it says it does. It also lasts a really long time so while people think it's pricey this product is worth it

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 🙂
