I LOVE THIS! Pimples disappear or decrease in size overnight with out actually drying my skin all the way out like some other spot treatments.

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.

This dries out pimples after using it a couple times. It also helps bring the heads to the surface. Just don’t expect results after one use!

If you’re looking for a fast fix that really works this is it! Put some on any black or white heads and watch them fade to nothing overnight!

This is a good product if you put it on over night it does shrink your zit but most of the time it's not gone by the time you need it to be.

I have acne prone skin and I have tried this lotion many times, it worked some times and other times it did not. I ordered it from Nordstrom.

This product works, but I don’t think overnight it takes a few days to see skin improvement. Slight alcohol smell but it is tolerable.

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 🙂
