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!

Dried out my pimples so well. Loved the smell and texture of the product, it burned a little on my pimple and felt like a healthy astringent.

Excellent spot treatment. Good ingredients. A bit difficult to apply and need qtips always. Glass bottle could break easily. Very effective

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'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 🙂
