Amazing spot treatment for your acne! Thankfully I don't break out as much anymore, but when I was, this was a LIFE SAVER!!!

I use this when I have a bad breakout. Drys them up within a few days. I wish it worked a bit faster but still does the job.

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

Definitely does the job. A little goes a long way. I've gone through about two of these now and will continue to repurchase.

I used to love this product until I switched over to a different spot treatment that completely blows this out of the water.

Let me start out by saying .. BIG WASTE OF MONEY. it was cheap but I’m still disappointed that it doesn’t work on my pimples.

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 🙂
