Great product! Love that the spot treatment is so easy to use. I can tell it dries out pimples, but doesn't really reduce redness.

AMAZING! This shrinks even the worst, deep rooted cystic pimples overnight. It is incredible when paired with the Buffering Lotion.

This product is the best at drying out major breakouts!! Put it on over night and it’s gone or significantly smaller  by the morning

It worked OKAY for me. Had to use it in conjunction with another product to see effects. Didn't try it again after the first time.

This product works, it’s very strong. Only thing is it stains your skin at least for me it did. But other then that it works great.

I bought this because I read a lot of reviews saying it was the same as the one from Kate Somerville. This did nothing for my acne.

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 🙂
