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

This product does a good job of drying spots but it doesn't get rid of them any faster for me than if I just left them alone. I feel like it may just be calamine lotion in a fancy bottle. A bit disappointing

Great product, dries up pimples within ten minutes. Put it on before I go to bed or straight after cleaning my skin. Strong smell but you adjust to it pretty quickly. The packaging is really simple and cute

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

Awesome product. Within 2-4 days any spots are completely gone. Only thing I don't like is that it runs out within about one or two months so I would like to see a bigger bottle. Definitely would 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 🙂
