THIS WORKS WONDERS! I really don't understand how but I'll put it on at night before I fall asleep and when I wake up, my skin is clear. Yes, it's very pricey for the size and product, but it's worth it. Buy this! You won't regret it.

I've never seen a blemish treatment work so effectively so fast before. this 100% does the job if you put it on your blemishes to dry over night, the next day your face is almost if not completely clear. Great product, highly recommend

I love this stuff! I use it every night whenever necessary. I find that when I apply it to my acne it does a great job in shrinking or making it disappear. A little goes a long way. Would recommend!!!

Love all of my Mario Badescu products. This drying lotion is amazing when you need to dry out a problem spot on your face. My only complaint is that it really dries you out after the acne spot is gone.

This is miraculous! I have bad cystic acne and I use it as a spot treatment before I go to bed and I wake up with everything basically gone! It's amazing and for its price point I couldn't recommend it more!

This product is magic in a bottle! Use this over night to reduce size and redness of problem zits. Over the course of a few days zits disappear! Love and highly recommend! It looks like a tiny bottle, but you really don't need that much product!

Love this stuff. Yes I feel a break up coming on or a pimple popping up I always use this on it. It works really well at drying it out and making it go away faster. Worth trying out and easy to find.

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 🙂
