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

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

BEST ACNE SPOT TREATMENT EVER. This stuff is literally magic. If you suffer from random spots this is the stuff you need. It's a great price and I think it smells great!

One of my ABSOLUTE favorite products! Friends are asking to borrow it constantly and it clears up my acne over night, I use for spot treatment when I see acne appearing. Def would recommend!

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!

At times, I will get large stress acne spots that never really amount to anything. They're just annoying and very painful. This product dries up the acne spots within a night or two of use. Love it and will purchase again
