This product is great! It definitely helps to bring pimples to the surface faster, and by the next day pimples are greatly reduced in size and redness. It doesn't completely get rid of my acne, but it does help with the appearance.

The MB drying lotion is my FAVORITE product ever. Put this on a zit and the next day it's basically gone. It's also gentle on the skin. You can get it in a glass bottle or plastic for traveling. Very good product!

I put this on whatever pimple I may have and leave it on overnight, and I almost always wake up with the pimple greatly reduced in size. I would recommend to anyone that gets random pimples.

This actually works very well! Just put it on your acne the night before the next day it will get much smaller the next day. If you get occasional acne this is a great product to have on hand.

one of my favorite products. i try not to rely on it as it can dry your skin out but any time i find some active breakouts, i use this and it's either gone in a pinch or it is less inflamed.

This is my favorite spot treatment. You simply apply it at night and by the time you wake up in the morning, the spot is significantly smaller. As someone with very dry skin, I haven't had a problem with it drying out my skin. I would definitely recommend!

This smells like a hospital, first of all. And I don't like hospital smells. And it felt nice and cooling on my acne, but it made me break out more. I think it's way too overhyped, honestly. It only made my skin worse, and it's overpriced.

Absolutely incredible. Works just as good to clear up my skin as super pricey products from the dermatologist. You just dab it on your blemishes, go to sleep and wake up with better skin. I'm obsessed

Kylie Jenner wasn't just shamelessly promoting this product. It works really well, I put it on at night when I have a zit and it is less inflamed the next morning. It's definitely something I would recommend to my friend.

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 🙂
