Love this. Helped clear my problem areas skin overnight. Although it is strong would not forget to moisturize when using this product. Definitely a must have in your skin care routine.

Works great, definitely saw improvement after one use. My only problem is that when the pink pigment drys it shed and the liquid at the top is alcohol so it stings

This started out as a great product and it cleared up my monster pimples, but the. It started to not work as well and caused
More pimples. Would not buy again. And you have to be very careful the product doesn't mix.

This stuff does wonders! I don't worry so much about unwanted visitors on my face! I apply this at night or whenever I'm makeup free and it immediately treats my break outs without being too harsh. It's a must have!

By far the best spot treatment I have ever used! I was a fan of the essential oils blend for acne but the spot treatment from Mario badescu diminishes acne spots to nothing overnight!

This is a miracle product! It makes pimples disappear practically overnight! And I'm not being dramatic! It also lasts long time. It's also not extremely expensive

This product is really great you just dab a little bit on your active Flemish is at nighttime with a Q-tip and wake up wash it off and they are significantly smaller. I will continue to use this on active tough break out and little ones that are forming ahead soon

A MUST if you get pimples here and there.. I get a pimple maybe once every two or three months and this dries it out quickly and makes the size decrease amazingly!

I've tried this product a lot over the past few months and I just don't notice it working. I know some people swear by it but it's not worth the $17 in my opinion.

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 🙂
