Let me start off by saying, this stuff smells horrendous but definitely works for those stubborn, painful pimples that just won't come to head.

This works miracles! I put this on at night when I have a stubborn breakout and when I wake up, the pimple has dried up and almost diminished.

Didn't work for me one bit. Not saying it won't work at all. Just my skin said nope! Lol. I ended up giving it to my 17 daughter who loves it.

This absolutely gets rid of any breakout that I have- small or big. I do have to take a break from it though, just cause my skin is sensitive.

I apply this at night if I have a break out and it's usually gone the next day. This product is amazing. I definitely keep this on hand always.

I love this product! It works actually pretty well, but it does sometimes takes a couple of days to work! Still, it works, and I’m glad it does

I wish they're more stars to rate this product! I can't explain how much I love this product. It works well on blemishes and clears it right up

The best product to use on open breakouts. Works instantly. Tingly sensation when you put it on. Put it on over breakouts overnight before bed!

I put it on at night as a spot treatment and leave it over night. In the morning when I wash it off it completely dries out my pimple or bump .

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 🙂
