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.

Amazing product. I use as a spot treatment, instantly zaps acne over night. There are a lot of alternatives, this is my fave!

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 frequently use this at night when I feel a blemish coming up. It clears up any pimples within one night or two at the most.

This helps absorb oil out of my blemishes. I put it on at night when I am sleeping. It seems to help pimples go away faster.

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 🙂
