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.

If you ever have a zit/pimple, and want it to go away, use this. However, the changes don't happen overnight but is very effective.

It worked great at first; clearing blemishes overnight. I don't know if my skin adjusted, but it doesn't have the same effect now.

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