Doesn't seem to do much for large, cystic pimples but for smaller pimples or even blackheads and oily areas it does a good job. Reasonably priced too.

I don’t like this drying treatment. It doesn’t work for me, it does nothing to my pimples and leaves my skin dry. It has a strong smell and it flakes.

I honestly feel like this product is over hyped for nothing. It doesn’t do anything to my skin. Tea tree oil definitely works better for my blemishes.

I usually put this on my spots before bed (or anything that looks like it could be a spot in the morning) and it does prevent them from becoming worse.

Love this product, it is the best for clearing spots. I put it on before I go to sleep and when I wake up the spots are gone. It's sooo worth the money

Love this stuff just finished my second bottle. This is great for drying out spots overnight. I swear my spots even look less red. This is a must have.

This is good at reducing spots however, there are definitely better things for cheaper! I got Duac from my Drs, and it's amazing (and half the price!)
