I use this on all my spots that pop up. It really dries them up over night and the spot is noticeably smaller and less red.

Love love love! This is a great spot treatment however you have to be careful not to over use it because it is very drying.

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 🙂
