AMAZING product!  It's the only product we use.  Will totally clear up breakouts in a day and is totally worth the price!
Quickly dries up any zits and is gone within the next day. Really great product! I would recommend to anyone with acne.

Alcohol smell is a little strong, but works really well during the night time to help pimples dry out and not progress.
