Be careful when using this product as it has a pugent smell. It is however effect in removing blemishes if you catch them early enough.

I used this drying solution and it didn’t really work for me to be honest. Also it’s not way too expensive for the tiny bottle as well

This drying lotion is amazing! I apply before I go bed and when I wake up it's so much better. It's so easy to use and very efficient.

Running out of it but it lasted SO long (about 5 months). It got rid of my breakouts and it is honestly my favorite acne product yet.
