I always use this on my pimple spots and they visiblely better in the morning. Or they come to a head earlier and they always go away faster.

I really like this product , it does not make the pimple disappear next day but it truly does dry out the pimple faster and cuts healing time

Great Product! Really works. I use overnight and wake up to smaller breakouts and pimples. I simply wash off in the morning to start my day!

A friend of mine gave me some of this to try and it helped my acne to clear up. I did almost get too dry in that spot but it was still great.

Love this!! This is the best spot treatment.. I dot this on my break outs at night and by the morning it's significantly smaller if not gone!

This makes my breakouts disappear so fast! It's a must have if you suffer from frequent breakouts. It doesn't do much for blackheads though.

Love all their products especially this one. I would put this on a zit before going to bed and in the morning it was almost completely 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 🙂
