This product is amazing !!!! I got this small and reddish spot and severe acne if my period is about to start but since i started to used this product my face is clearer, I never had this kind of product work this perfect perfect for people who is low maintenance like me (i mean who doesnt put like day/night cream or even mouturizer ) :-) 5/5 star

+ + + + +


This is not a miracle product,but it does minimize the pimples! Can't live without it anymore!

+ + + + +


Thank you for the fast delivery of the products.

This stuff is truly magic! It dries and makes my zit disappear just like that, i can truly rely on this little bottle to do the work for me when "that time of the month" is on, and i get hormonal acne. Just yesterday i had a real problem zit and this product took care of it, now it's just a red spot that is healing fast and i can cover with concealer for now, and before was impossible. AMAZING!

I really adore this product. Especially whiteheads really shrink (or even disappear) overnight when using this. It smells 'medicinal' but that doesn't matter as you only put it on before bed. I've finished my first bottle and just started my 2nd one which I purchased via Cosmania - super fast delivery, a kind personal note and two testers which I am loving as well! :)

Great product!! i used it 2 days and my blemish was gone,i have to add delievery was very fast. i will definately purchase again....

+ + + + +


This is a good product. It dries spots out. For me, however, the drying cream works better.

+ + + + +


It is an best anti-acne product that I have used. I have been struggling for the acne problem for almost 1 year, I have tried lots of products and finally now I find the right one! I have used it for two nights, and the pimples become smaller and smaller. Now I'm planning to buy the buffering lotion for alternative use.

+ + + + +


great product! works like magic!

+ + + + +


Love the product! Works well and easy to use, would def order it again.

+ + + + +


definitely effective! it's good to use on an obvious spot, which after one night would be shranked. but, hard to clean.
