This works well on smaller, surface pimples. It decreases the size and redness. For cystic acne it is not much help though.

When I put this on breakouts it doesn’t fully dry it out. I know others have great results with this product but I do not.

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 🙂
