I have very oily and acne prone skin and this lotion did help a lot. The smell was good but it did make my acne worse before it made it better

I recently bought this product and I find that it really helps as a spot treatment on my pimples and they tend to be gone after just two uses!

Works incredibly! If you have acne prone skin... your skin will love you for it! This is a must for me just to have on hand in case I need it!

I absolutely love this for putting on my breakouts. I put it on at night and by the morning the breakout is significantly better, or dryed out.

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.

Love Mario Badescu and it’s products. This is my holy grail when I have a pimple breakout. It vanishes the pimple in two days. Overall amazing!

Magic in a bottle. It stings a bit at first, but it only lasts a moment and is so worth it. It is the best drying lotion I have tried to date.

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 🙂
