This lasts forever as a little goes a long way! It works pretty good too. The smell is a tad strong at first though. Great value!

Very effective in drying out pimples! Just apply it overnight and the next day the pimple is smaller in size and less irritated.

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

A little day goes a long way. Really helps dry pimples out, but very similar to Kate somervilles eradikate, good for quick fixes.

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 🙂
