Pretty impressed with this product. Don't really like the fall out, but other than that, lives up to expectations of drying out blemishes! Not harsh at all.

Absolutely amazing for spots, can use at night and the spot will have either completely cleared up or have gone down drastically, would definitely recommend.

This product really does work to zap those pesky pimples but I found that my skin got used to it after awhile and so it didn't work as well as it once did

Great if you have one of those annoying pimples that you just need to get rid of quickly. Amazing overnight remedy if you have somewhere to be the next day

This is like magic, you just put one dot if the powder where you have or think you are going to have a really bad pimple and the next day it's dry.

Its good but the first 3 weeks i didn't see any difference on my pimples likes everyone says. People say it clears the pimple in one night and not for me.

MY PIMPLE/ ZIT LIFE SAVER IN A BOTTLE !! This stuff was so effective on my toughest spot. Put it on over night and in the morning it's diminished or gone!

Great for getting rid of blemishes over night.
Dramatically reduces redness.

Make sure you if your product has been shaken you let it settle before using.

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 🙂
