Love this spot treatment. Clears up breakouts completely in just a couple days, and prevents pimples before they completely form.

This did work for a little, but it doesn't really help my huge pimples. I thought it would work better since it was highly rated.

It works to dry out moderate acne but is useless on cysts or deeper blemishes. The lotion can also be difficult to remove fully.

This stuff is really great for small problematic breakouts or acne prone skin! I do however think there are cheaper alternatives.

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 🙂
