Really great for spot treatment. Dries out white heads really well. Had a very strong menthol smell I am not fond of but still works well.

I couldn't live without this staple in my bathroom. Whenever I do get a pimple which is rare...I put this on and it's gone by the next day.

Amazing to put on an incoming zit over night and dry it right out. Fairly cost efficient option for an acne product as well! Simple to use.

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 🙂
