This is a pretty good product except for the fact that it is very harsh on your skin. The scent is harsh but other than that it it burns your skin( and I don't have sensitive skin so this is not common for me at all). But it usually helps me when I use it.

I love this product!! It's so little but so effective. Definitely recommend to try it if you haven't. Just put a little on acne and it will prevent the acne or lighten any marks

It is a great product. It helped with my pimples. It basically dries them up thus causing them to shrink. The only downside for me was how when i fell asleep at night the product would sometimes come off and smear on the rest of my cheeks. The price is good. It not too expensive.

This product is pure magic. When I have stressful weeks and start to break out pretty bad I use this at night after I clean my face and I'm the morning my pimples are almost gone. Love the glass bottle.

This stuff works really well on blemishes. It smells intense and looks funny having pink spots on your face, but my husband just laughs at me and it is so worth it. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
