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

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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

I love this product so much! This is a great quick fix for small/new pimples/acne. It's been working really well for me and I would highly recommend 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 🙂
