Miracle worker! Great for acne prone skin. May be too harsh for sensitive skin. This product is effective and lives up to the hype. Great value.

Pimple one day, pimple gone the next! Amazing for overnight treatments! I've never been as happy with an acne treatment as I have been with this.

This dying lotion really works! If I have a small blemish I will use this over night and by the morning it is basically gone! Such a life saver.

Love this brand! It works so much better than most other products. It clears my face up super fast. I noticed in a week it is visibly different.

Think product is everything! Drys out a pimple overnight. Do not shake this product. It takes a long time to separate after it is mixed together

Love this product light and refreshing for the skin. I like to use it as a toner, especially after washing my face helps my skin feel refreshed.

I will forever repurchase this item. At night after doing all my skincare, if I ever have a blemish I put this on it and the next morning - gone!

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 🙂
