I use this almost every night when I do my skincare routine! I bought it from ulta and for only $20 it gets the job done! It's my first time using the product and I'm really enjoying the results! I would definitely buy again!

I like this lotion and I use it from time to time before I apply my makeup or after I cleanse my face. I don’t think it is a must have but it is useful in hydrating your face.

This works wonders! I have acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I dab this on any blemishes I may have at night and in the morning they'll be dry. This works wonders

This drying lotion works wonders! Just dab a little on a bump and it's gone within a day or two! It is very strong and kind of burns but not bad at all! Results are fast!

It makes the redness of and size of the pimple diminish quite a bit. It’s a very good deal you get a lot of product that will last a very long time as a spot treatment

This dried out my pimples so well! I used to use a clean and clear acne spot treatment but after a while it stopped working so I decided to try this and I just love it

I used to really love this product, but have stopped using it in the last few years. It works really well for oily and acne prone skin, but less so for dry skin.

I love MB products! This has been my go-to spot treatment for almost 10 years! Exfoliate/wash your face & apply with a Qtip to problem areas before bed. Great results!

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 🙂
