It works to dry out moderate acne but is useless on cysts or deeper blemishes. The lotion can also be difficult to remove fully.

Liquid looks weird lol but when applied to pimples or anything of that sort, it helps minimize appearance and the swelling asap

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 🙂
