This is overly drying, cannot use or I'm left with dry patches for weeks. I would not repurchase. But everyone skin is different

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

Go to products when you have a big zit. Put it on before bed and wake up to magic in the morning. Follow with hydrating products.

This drying lotion is very helpful when it comes to clearing up my face. It dries out pimples and just reduces the size of them.

I dab this on my face before going to bed when I have a breakout and it really does help shrink and bring down any inflammation.
