Insane stuff, smells strong but by god does it work!? It’s amazing! Never tried anything like it and it’s so easy to use, not cheap but well worth the price tag

I love how easy and simple this is to use, I see results overnight. Only drawback is the formula is hard to travel with but not a huge deal if you let it settle

Drying lotion does work, it dries out the blemish but you have to be careful as too much can dry your skin out, very easy to use although a very strange concept

BEST drying lotion for the cost. Equivalent to EridiKate, but cheaper! Bottle will last you 1 year +++ if you remember to use a new q-tip with each application.

This product works but I found that it sometimes makes my spots bigger and I have to use it a couple of times to get rid of them. Overall, I find it works okay.

Really good at drying up under the skin spots or any spots really, but keep applying when it has scanned to really dry them up, takes a few days but worth it!

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 🙂
