So lately I have been hearing about this product all over the Internet from Instagram to YouTube I definitely recommend this product to anybody that wants a fresh feeling to the face along with hydrating the face!

I'm obsessed with this stuff. If you have breakouts this works amazing to dry them up and shrink them. I have prescriptions for acne and this works better than what I have. I love it and it's not pricey at all.

I heard a lot about this product and figured I would give it a try since I have tried just about everything. I was shocked with the results I got. I put it on my spots at night after cleansing and the small ones are gone in a night or two and the bigger ones are gone in about three to four nights. It is the best product I have used by far.

Love this pimple miracle eraser!! It's my go to for all my stubborn blemishes and ugly bumps. It worked well with my sensitive skin and took care of my blemishes in about two uses. Great impulse buy from ULTA

This little life saver is great for drying out a spot overnight without drying out all the surrounding skin. I love that a quick q tip application is all you need to wake up with your spot gone or severely diminished!

I have hormonal acne and I’m usually never clear of acne but this really helps keep them in check. I have pretty tough skin so it doesn’t feel harsh but could be for sensitive skin types or even in the winter.

Great on spot treating acne. But be warned, will dry out area very quickly so use sparingly. I know they are now lower priced dupes but something about this works better for my acne prone skin.

One of my all time favorite products for breakouts. It works so well and very fast. I buy this product all the time at ulta beauty. It's a little harsh if the breakout is open. Otherwise you don't feel a thing

This is one of my favorite, go to products. When I switched birth control nothing would help with my acne but this product. I can't live without this now. I recommend this to anyone with even the smallest breakout.

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 🙂
