Amazing. Just as effective as Kate Sommerville for a fraction of the cost. I will definitely repurchase and it helps get rid of my pimples quickly! It was effective and good to use, no harshness on my skin

This product is super easy to use and works extremely well. It quickly gets rid of stubborn zits overnight or with a few applications. I love it for spot treating, thought I must warn, it is drying. The only think is wish is that it wasn't bright pink! I wish it didn't look like dots all over your face

Literalmente seca la espinilla enseguida. Te la colocas en la noche y al otro dia ya la espinilla desaparece, casi por completo. Es super suave. Lo recomiendo muchisimo. Tiene un buen empaque.

Very quick and light weight! Put the smallest amount on before bed and the spots and blemishes and significantly reduced the next day! Small bottle but a little bit really goes a long way!

This is the only product I have used from this line. It works great. As soon as I spot an oncoming pimple, use this lotion and boom, it dries it up. Good spot treatment. Be careful not to apply on normal skin as it ties out the area it comes in contact with

This is a great product to use when your skin breaks out, you just apply a tiny bit before bed, you let it dry overnight and the next morning remove it and the pimple is almost 100% gone

Love this product! Apply before bed to your blemishes and when you wake, all the swelling has gone down. Good for sensitive skin! Exceeded my expectations. Would recommend to anyone who deals with acne or blemishes.

Everyone knows the feeling when that annoying pimple shows up at the least appropriate time! This product really helps to dry it up and makes that pimple dissapear quickly! Apply it at night and I will repurchase it!

A little goes a long way with this. Gets rid of spots over night and is so easy to use, gentle on the skin doesn't cause irritation, nice packaging and worth the price, would recommend

Such an effective little bottle from Mario badescu! I think it's definitely worth the money at around £15! I apply this every night to my spots that appear out of no where and by the next morning they have either got smaller in size or pratically dryed up! I would 100% recommend & will continue to repurchase this! I'm not sure that this will treat cystic spots overnight however as they are more under the skin and will take time to go on their own!😊

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 🙂
