Good stuff in a bottle this does what it says on the tin can be quite harsh as it drys the skin out and smells funny packaging is alright could come in a like a spray bottle so you didn’t have to dip a cotton bud in!

I love this product so damn much! The hype is because it's gold. It literally makes your zit vanish over night (or within two to three uses if it's a harsh one) honestly recommend to everyone with all skin types.

Dries up my blemishes extremely quick. Love using this overnight to have clear skin in the morning. Wouldn't recommend using this all over the face just on large spots. Wish this product was more readily available.

I have been using this product a lot time ago, and I really don't feel like it's doing something, I first heard of it from Kylie Jenner, but it just doesn't work on me, so I don't think I would use it again :|

I lovvvee this product!
As soon as I feel a spot coming I apply this to the area before bed and the next morning it's almost gone.
It was very effective and I wasn't disappointed.
Not bad on your money either.

I love that my pimples disappear overtime, the price is great for the quantity and applications of the product. It defanetely met my expectation, it's a really good value, and I already used two bottles of it

Was sceptical of this product as I am with most skincare specific brands, however this exceeded expectations. I purchased it from BeautyBay, it has plain packaging which I like and I'm a first time user.

this works perfect for me whenever i stupidly give into my urge and squeeze my pimple! i like to spot treat my pimple and leave this on overnight, in the morning my pimple is completely drained and i wash it off before applying moisturiser :)

A lot of people claim this can clear a pimple overnight, for me however it takes a few days to completely disappear, this product is also very strong and can kind of sting your eyes. I have mixed feelings about the product but I don't know if I'd buy it 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 🙂
