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.

This stuff is a miracle product. It'll dry up a pimple in a night. It's a lifesaver! I recommend it to everyone with blemish prone skin.

This is good to use when I'm in a pinch. Sometimes it doesn't work like I hope but most of the time it decreases redness and irritation.

I bought the sample size and i love it. I had to go back and get the big one plus the price is not bad at all. My favorite setting spray

This drying lotion is good. As soon as I see a breakout coming I apply this to the area and it's gone by the next day. Just a bit pricey.

I actually love this product. It does sting when you first put it on an acne spot but do it a few nights in a row and it will be 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 🙂
