True has really cleared up my skin by getting rid of pimples overnight and also minimizing my scars. I'm finishing my second bottle already!

Best spot treatment I've ever used! It seriously drys up pimples in no time but doesn't make your skin flaky. Definitely recommend to others.

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.

This is the best spot treatment I have used. It zaps upcoming pimples and current pimples over night. The scent is strong but it is worth it.

Honestly a miracle worker. If I have a whitehead pop up, I put this on overnight and by the morning it's somehow dried it out and shrunk it!

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 🙂
