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

I use this stuff all the time. Sometimes it works great but then other times I don’t think it does anything. It does dry out the pimple and the skin so you will have flaky skin. I will continue to repurchase.

This product is amazing. I put it on before bed and in morning I can notice a difference on my break out. It has a strong smell but is totally worth it. Plus the price isn't bad either for something that works.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! Just had to repurchase it because I ran out. It is so simple to use (as long as you do not shake the bottle), and it takes care or redness so easily. One of my must have products!

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.

This stuff is amazing, and not as expensive as i thought it might be. put it on a pimple before it comes to a head and it dries it out and helps diminish redness.
