This stuff is magic.  It's a sulfur-based spot treatment that helps to decrease acne spots.  I would definitely recommend this.

This drying lotion burns! But that's how I know it's working. It's great as a spot treatment and helps pimples heal quicker.

Great product if you have light acne or break out occasionally. I usually apply it before bed and after I've washed my face.

Works good at drying out pimples overnight. If you use to much it can be overly drying at times but if used right works good.

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 🙂
