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

El mejor producto para eliminar esas molestas postulas que aparecen de vez en cuando en nuestro rostro. No es agresivo la aplicación. Buen producto.

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.

Honestly this works! Although it works best on whiteheads, it isn't that bad on red bumps. I feel it gives best results when you wear it overnight
