I get bad whiteheads that can be very painful. This product helps to dry up the pimple and is easy to use and stays on overnight unlike other spot treatments I've used which were messy

I prefer the Kate Somerville version . Both work well but this one tends to flake off as soon as it's dry. The Kate Somerville is usually still on once I wake in the morning.

This completely dried up my pimples overnight. It doesn't over dry the rest of my skin and it doesn't sting! It completely changed my skin for the better and I have really bad acne!

Best pimple zapper! Yes it smells funny and yes you look like a fool with those pink spots but it really works! In the morning my pimples are smaller and less visible. Amazing product

Ugh, I was so excited for this because everyone raves over it. But, I found that when I put it on a spot coming in, that it didn't really do anything and when I slept in it, it just came off of my skin onto my pillow, so how effective can it really be? Won't purchase again.

A good spot treatment for big pimples, it dries them out and help them heal. You can only use it while you're home because it leaves a pink mask over the pimple

I don't understand the hype about this product. It didn't work any wonders on my skin and after using it regularly it appeared to stop having any affect at all.

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 🙂
