This product did not help me as much as I thought it was going to, after all the good reviews I had read. Overall I was disappointed.

This product was my life saver. It worked very well but I did not repurchase it because it quite expensive and I found a great dupe.

Works on most acne spots but doesn't treat stubborn acne. It does dry out the acne spots somewhat but requires multiple applications

By far the best spot treatment. The only downside is the extremely strong sulfur smell, but that's the ingredient that makes it good!

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 🙂
