This always works so quickly on my problem areas. I use it on blemishes and oily spots on my face. I do not use it daily.

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

This gets such rave reviews, so I purchased it thinking it would be amazing. It did nothing for me when I had breakouts.

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 🙂
