THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING!! i’ve been using it for about a week and my skin is completely cleared up. heard great things about it so i thought i give it a try. i will say that it is very drying on your skin so make sure to use a heavy duty moisturizer in the morning after you wash the drying lotion off! i use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré and it works great!

Dries out that pimple before 24hrs. I use it the first sign of acne. Especially those one that hurt but can't figure out what's going on.

It definitely works on certain types of acne. It smells God awful though. Like sulfur. It won't work on all zits so make sure to read it.

one of my favorite drying products, apply before bed and wake up the next day with blemishes less red and closer to being gone completely

This product is great at drying out my white head type pimples. It takes a little extra muscle to remove the next day but not very much.

This product dried out my zits almost immediately! Any time I feel one coming up, I put a small drop of the drying lotion on before bed.

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 🙂
