I use this as spot treatment when I have any pimples. I'll apply it overnight and by the next day its gone. I use it with a qtip and just put a small amount and dab it on my pimple.

This is perfect for spot treatments. I usually put this on spots before bed and wash it for in the morning. Definitely worth the cost. It sort of tingles when you first apply but you can tell it is working.

I have used this product in the past, and it works like a miracle for those stubborn pimples. It does have a weird smell when you first apply. Overall it's great for acne treatment.

Love this drying lotion! It works perfectly for little bumps festering under the surface of the skin. I don't get a ton of acne so when I do it's pretty embarrassing this stuff works wonders. Great price!

This drying lotion really does wonders. Apply it right before bed and the next day you wake up feeling amazing because your acne has went down. It's that amazing. It comes with a lot of product but I will be re purchasing.

My ride or die spot treament. Whenever I have a spot coming out I just dab this on before bed and it's gone in the morning! A wonderfully priced spot treatment for anyone to use! This saves my life constantly.

Obsessed with this stuff!!! Just a little dab on a zit will clear it up by morning. The smell is oberwhelmingly pungent, but it's worth it for what the product does. 10/10 recommend.

This stuff is as close as it gets to magic. Holy moly. Without a doubt there's a difference from a pimple overnight. My painful deep pimples dry out and there's a vast difference.

It clears your acne overnight! The only bad thing is that once there’s only a quarter left it doesn’t work as well for some reason. If you struggle with acne you should get this!!

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 🙂
