THE BEST IVE EVER USED FOR PIMPLES. Great for spot treatment. Do not shake the bottle! Simply dip a q-tip and put on your blemishes overnight. Doesn't smell to great and it burns but it really does the job.

Dries up any acne overnight. It works so well with my acne prone skin. I used it for the first time about a month ago and I really love it so far. I got it from urban outfitters and it was very inexpensive.

The only acne spot treatment worth spending your money on. I've used it for over 10 years and swear by it. Just make sure you moisturize the area well if you're skin is dry.

This really works to dry up any spots you have. Just put it on before bed and it gets rid of any problems overnight. The only problem is that rubs off while you're sleeping and can get all over your pillow.
