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

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

Love love love this product. It takes quite a while before the pimple disappears but it leaves the skin good and not scarred.

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 🙂
