Bought this spot treatment but it literally does nothing. I would say it is comparable to putting tooth paste on your blemishes.

This is a pretty good product. It doesn’t necessarily make the acne disappear in one night but after two or so it’s almost gone!

This stuff is a miracle for pimples. I've recently discovered it and it's the only thing that has cleared up a pimple overnight.
Drys out the problem really well however it lost a star from me because it is super drying and chalky and can sting when applied.

Great to dry up spots for the weekend. However be careful with the packaging as I dropped mines and sadly need to buy a new one.

I absolutely love this product. It clears up my acne spots in such a short amount of time. I just wish I could find it in Canada.

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 🙂
