I find this to be a very effective spot treatment. It clears up blemishes in 2-3 days for me usually. The only time I don't see it effective is times that I'm under a lot of stress, those blemishes seem to be the most stubborn.
This product does what the name says and truly dries out the area so make sure to only apply it to the blemish and not any of the skin around it.
For the price, I really like this product. My only complaint is that the packaging/formula makes it really hard to travel with because you don't want the product to mix together. The sediment is supposed to stay at the bottom, separate from the fluid.

This works wonders on a cold sore!! It was gone within 2 days!! Definitely a hg skin product. This + mb acne cleanser + coconut oil as a moisturizer has made my once acne spotted and scared skin FLAWLESS. I will purchase forever.

I've been using this for over 6 months now and I must say it does a decent job at taking care of any unwelcomed visitors. It definitely speeds up the drying process without affecting the skin as a whole. My only complaint is trying to remove it in the morning. It takes my enzyme peel to get it off and even then it still faintly remains. Will I repurchase? Most definitely and will be doing so shortly as I already ran out.

Last year when I started noticing an increase of zits on my left cheek I decided to go to Ulta to grab something to zap them since they weren't too many. The SA took me through their most popular treatments and highly recommended this product to me - she said she used it herself and really liked the effectiveness of it. I've been using this product for about a year now and really have not seen much difference. It doesn't get rid of my zit but when I apply it and I feel the sting I feel like it's working but really it's doing nothing. I continue to use this product since I spent to much on it and have quite a bit left; it doesn't irritate my skin or cause any more breakouts than I already have it just does absolutely nothing.

When I first started using this, it worked really well. My zits would dry up the next day after using it. After about 4 months, it stopped working. I think my skin became used to it. I also find this product inconvenient because you MUST use it with a cotton swab and you can only use it at night due to the pink patches.

I picked this up recently to handle a few stubborn blemishes. My skin is relatively clear, but I do get one or two small to medium sized inflamed blemishes along my jawline or cheekbones every few weeks that are a little stubborn to heal and painful. I've never had much luck with benzoyl peroxide based products, so I picked this up to give it a try. Alas, it does nothing for me at all. Maybe it's because my zits aren't pus-y enough and don't really need to be dried out, while this product seems to rely heavily on alcohol to work its magic, but I notice no change to my zits after using this on them for several nights in a row. It doesn't make my blemishes any worse, mind you, but any improvement seen in the blemish seems have more to do with time than treatment. All this does for me is leave me with annoying pink marks from the calamine lotion come morning.
I will say though, that I recently received a sample of the drying cream from Mario Badescu's line and liked that product much better. It's not a miracle product by any means, but it actual does appear to speed along the healing of my blemishes. I plan on purchasing a full size of that as soon as I finish up my sample.

I love the packaging, but that´s all.
It doesn´t really help with my pimples,it just makes it even more red and irritated.
I stopped using it .....

This product didn't work for me. I have combo skin and usually break out around that time of the month and was looking for a good spot treatment. After reading the positive reviews on this product, I figured I'd give it a try on a couple of pimples I had on my chin. It caused the entire area on my chin to become inflamed - my skin was all red, puffy and felt raw. I immediately stopped using it and returned it. It took a couple of weeks for my skin to return to normal. I was surprised because I don't have sensitive skin, but what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another.

This product didn't do much for me, I have very acne prone skin with several deep pimples. It would sting for a little while, but nothing unbearable. My smaller pimples would disappear within 2-3 days, but it didn't really affect the bigger ones.
After using this for 2 months, the biggest change I have noticed is the dry patches on my skin. This product isn't really worth the money in my book, and you can get better Products that aren't as expensive.
Another thing is that I used about 2 Q-tips and after a short period of time I noticed that a lot of the liquid in the bottle was already gone.
