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

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 notice my troubled acne spots are much smaller and less red after putting this product on top and leaving it over night

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

 Any time I break out seems to be the day before something important (of course) and this stuff always comes to my rescue!
