Works sometimes, but other times it doesn't seem to do much. It's gentle on the skin, but still manages to do something.

This stuff kind of reminds me of calamine lotion.  It seems to work well though it does not come with a lot of directions

I like it but It doesn't remove the acne spots immediately but it helps to reduce the redness and a little bit the size.

Does a great job on some pimples! Definitely not a cure all but helps with smaller pimples and helps them come to a head

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 🙂
