Great product if you have light acne or break out occasionally. I usually apply it before bed and after I've washed my face.

Dab it on at night and you'll wake up seeing a difference. Continue this for a few nights until you see it slowly going away.

This stuff is magic.  It's a sulfur-based spot treatment that helps to decrease acne spots.  I would definitely recommend this.

Works to reduce the redness and swelling. Always works and is never disappointing. A little expensive but definitely worth it

Works better than most other products I've tried. The color is cute not that that matters and it lasts awhile which is great!

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 🙂
