This product does what it says, I cleanse my face, apply moisturizer, the product on any blemishes and go to sleep. By morning the blemishes are almost completely gone. Honestly I bought this because Kylie Jenner uses this

la verdad a mi no me salen muchos granos en la cara, pero esto si funciona de maravilla para los pocos granos, lo malo es que se suele infectar muy rapido y tienes que tener extremo cuidado con el producto para que no se mezcle o se infecte y no sirva

This is the best fast acting treatment I have found for getting rid of acne blemishes. It reduces the appearance of spots overnight and it smells amazing. The packaging is very sleek and it looks very nice on my vanity.

The best spot acne treatment. I use it on inflamed pimples and the redness and size goes down the next morning. If I know I won’t be using a lot of makeup the next few days I’ll use it every night. It will cause dry patches if used every night. So either exfoliate the areas well or use every other night.

I like to put this on any problem areas of my face, it tingles but doesn't hurt, which in my opinion means it's working, I've used this for a total of 3 months now and consider it part of my weekly intense skin routine

This is amazing for pimples!! Just take a q-tip and dip right in till you hit the pink, then apply straight to the affected area!! Sleep with it on and most blemishes are gone by the next day!! Highly recommend to anyone!

I often suffer from bad skin, I put this magic lotion on before bed and often the next morning it is dry. I find the cost is fair for the quality of the product. I would recommended to people who struggle with spots.

This is my favourite spot treatment that I've used. I love the packaging because you can see how much product you have left. This stuff is extremely effective and you can feel it working. I would definitely buy again.

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 🙂
