Very good product. High quality and works fast. However the smell is very strong and it's very obvious when you're using it due to the color

The drying lotions works great - it helps clear up breakouts over night; the fact that the results happen so quickly makes this a must have

Great for acne spot treatments. I put this on before bed and sleep in it to get the best results. It really does reduce pimples overnight!

I haven't noticed a big difference with this product. It does dry out the pore a little but it's not very effective. It's very affordable.

I love this stuff. It kinda has a strange smell to it, but that’s kinda expected with most acne products. It’s kinda pricey, but it works.

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 🙂
