I love using this as a spot treatment when I can feel a pimple coming on if I get it early enough that usually keeps it from popping up

I usually don't breakout but when I do I know this will dry out the pimple within a night! You can see the difference when you wake up

This stuff smells HORRIBLE. But it works pretty good at reducing the size of zits. The smell goes away after a little bit on your face

Love this, it helps with little acne that pops up. I tried it because Kylie Jenner said she loved it and she has great skin lol.

It does help with pimples but only if it's already popped. Otherwise, I feel like it just kinda sits on top of my skin.

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 🙂
