Adoro questo prodotto lo metti la sera prima di mangiare e lo tengo tutta la notte e il mattino successivo il brufolo è diminuito, ovviamente alcune volte ci mette un po' di più ma è normale, ma in generale è un prodotto che consiglierei anche per chi ha la pelle sensibile perchè non la irrita

Works very well when cleaning up spots, does nip a little bit when used on sensitive skin. Does leave a dry spot on skin also, would still recommend.

Best spot treatment ever! Put a little dab on overnight and the spot is significantly smaller in the morning. I love the price of this stuff, too!

I wouldnt say it dries spots out straight away and gets rid of them; but it helps to keep them at bay and stop them breaking out into a white head

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 🙂
