It is awesome because it dried out your pimple over night. It is a bit pricy and it has to be handled with care, but it does its work.

I do notice how it diminishes the size of a pimple. I exfoliate my face at night and I apply this after all my serums and moisturizer.

Perfect for removing big pimples, but can be drying so only use it on the aggravated ones and use your normal routine with the smaller

This stuff works wonders on my breakouts. I put in on after I wash my face at night on my breakouts and the next morning they're gone!

Love! Dries up pimples and reduces the redness over night leaving you with no pimple or a reduced pimple that heals and fades quicker.

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 🙂
