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.

This is a spot treatment for pimples and whiteheads, it helps to dry up whiteheads overnight and clarify the area where they were thus preventing scarring.

I occasionally suffer from severe hormonal acne, and this product is a life saver! It is a little fiddly to use, but so worth it! Really affordable too.

SO GOOD! The only thing is is that it doesn't work overnight for myself, it takes a few nights but it definitely minimises overnight, works like a dream

Okay I don’t know if I’m just using this wrong but it’s doing nothing for me. Am I supposed to stop doing my normal skincare routine when applying this?

Just bought this from Ulta a little more than a week ago. I've been constantly using it on my breakouts and it doesn't seem to be doing all that much.
