Worked quite well on any pesky pimples that I had that needed drying out. I'd recommend, especially since it's so simple to use.

Love this spot treatment. Clears up breakouts completely in just a couple days, and prevents pimples before they completely form.

This did work for a little, but it doesn't really help my huge pimples. I thought it would work better since it was highly rated.

Totally worth the hype, whenever I feel a pimple coming to the surface I just pop this bad boy on it and the next day it's gone!

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 🙂
