I love this product to combat my blemishes, it doesn't dry out your entire face like most drying lotions. I love this product.

If you ever have a pimple just put some drying lotion on it before you go to bed and the next day it is like it was never there

Liquid looks weird lol but when applied to pimples or anything of that sort, it helps minimize appearance and the swelling asap

This drying lotion burns! But that's how I know it's working. It's great as a spot treatment and helps pimples heal quicker.

Really does help decrease the size of the pimple. Burns at first but only for a few seconds. It doesn’t decrease redness tho.

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 🙂
