This is the best product for spot acne treatment!! I put this on and the next day the acne spot shrunk in half! This is now my holy grail acne treatment. The only downfall is that the product needs over night to work its magic!

It works really well on pimples that have come to a head or are close but for me it doesn't work on newly forming pimples super well and hardly makes a difference.

Been fighting acne for year and this stuff really works! For me it does not dry them up completely overnight but it does shrink zits and they WILL be gone in 2-3 nights!

This stuff works wonders for my acne. If I use it consistently, my acne gets clear in a very short amount of time (1-2 days) . I love this stuff and will be buying more in the future.

This product is amazing when I have pimple pop out of nowhere. I like to use this when I really don’t need to put harsh mask on my face to treat pimples. I spot treat with this and it’s amazing it really does work.

Helps shrink those pimples over night. It's for sure drying on your skin but I feel like that's the point to dry out your blemishes. It works better than expected.

5 stars for a great product. I have been using this brand for over 3 years and still love it. Their products are awesome & great prices. The drying lotion works well I put a dab in at night and wake up awesome.

This drying lotion is so amazing. It really dried all of my pimples and prevented new ones from popping up. It’s a little expensive but I think it’s definitely worth the money. It lasts for a long time

I got this as part of their sample package and was skeptical at first. After using it I was totally impressed. This was the only item I ended up buying in the full size bottle.

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 🙂
