It definitely helps but I wouldn't say it's an overnight thing. It'll take at least 3 nights which isn't bad. It's super affordable.

Life saver in a bottle. Helps keep my blemishes at bay and bring down noticeable swelling. Has a slight scent but nothing unbearable.

My favorite thing to use on a pimple. Brings almost all of them to a head overnight. And a cystic pimple to a head within like 3 days

Awesome! Use on problem spots overnight, you wake up and they are practically gone! Pretty inexpensive and a little goes a long way!

I use this for my worse breakouts and its really good. Takes about 2-3 nights use on a breakout to see a real difference in the spot.

I use this on every breakout.   I like using it.  I can't say that my breakouts dry up overnight but it does help speed up the process.

I used to use this a lot. It's really good for SPOT acne, not severe cluster acne. It's affordable and minimized my pimple overnight.

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 🙂
