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

You just put it on the zit with a q tip and bam you wake up the next day and your zit is gone. It's literally that easy.

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'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 🙂
