Before I found spironolactone for my hormonal acne, I used this product all the time to spot treat. They apparently do not sell this any more. I found that Dr Eckstein's azulen paste is similar so I keep it on hand for my rare breakouts. For night use, I clean, tone with witch hazel, and then place a dab on the spot with qtip, covering with a small bandaid. This product helped to shrink …Read more

I love this stuff. I get occasional spots, and also ingrown hairs, and it's amazing at drawing out the infection and clearing it. It doesn't control oil, but then that's not what it's for - it seems to somehow bring the infection to the surface so it speeds up spot healing. It's not cheap, but one pot lasts for ages and I don't mind paying for the results I get …Read more

Best blackhead remover I've ever had. You have to make sure you leave this on for a few hours, and it is really messy... but so worth it! It will completely draw all the blackheads out of your face and leave your pores empty and plump! Great find!!

The packaging would be much better if it came in a tube. It's kind of a weird blue putty and it can be hard to wash off. However, I love this stuff! I have had white heads on both sides of my chin for YEARS and nothing ever hepled remove them until this stuff. I've only used it for 2 nights so far and I can barely see the white heads now =) I have also used it as a spot treatment on …Read more

Okay this is just flat out gross.Not only does it smell so funky,it's like putting gunk all over your face.It FEELS nasty as well and doesnt really do anything. No drawing in out of anything,not oil,not pimples.After washing it off,it felt my face looking the same.I reccomend that if youre looking something to control that oil,use a clay mask from St Ives(the firming clay mask) or the Tea …Read more

Got it on sale. It is absolute CRAP.
First I got it open and the lid just popped and I got half of the jar on my fingers.....
Second, I have two or three very small pimples, so I put a tiny bit of product on them for the night. In the morning, they were red and swollen, and others had appeared. So I get the concept of "getting them out" except I am MUCH BETTER OFF not knowing …

L'oreal ruined this product by removing icthamol. Icthamol is the drawing part of all drawing salves. Now it's just a blue goop. Boo L'oreal!!!!

I obtained several samples of this paste ( enough for almost a month) and I found that this product was very messy and ineffective. I have oily skin and I hated going to bed with something heavy and sticky on my face. I used up all my packets but didn't notice a difference in the healing time of my pimples. I'm glad I didn't purchase this product. Kiehls has many products I'm …Read more

I got a sample of this at the Kiehl's counter. I've been using it at night as a spot treatment after breakouts and it works really well! My pimples go away over night or in a couple of days. It helps to dry them out and make the redness go down. The only bad thing about it, is it gets a bit messy. It ends up on my pillow from sleeping on the side of my face at night but that's …Read more

This product works quite well and it does what it's suppose to do - draw out your pimples and what not. However, it's a little messy and hard to apply. I find that if you have a really bad pimple, it gets even messier. For me, it works best with just less complicated breakouts. It's also a pain to remove. You have to really get down and dirty to get it off and with it already …Read more
