Not suitable for my skin

Heard glowing reviews about this product saying that it can help reduce bumps under the skin. Furthmore it was advertised as flesh toned. My problem with this product is that it was overly drying causing flaky skin to appear where you applied the product. Addiitonally i had an irritation because of using this and i have breakout where i normallly dont have them. Thankfully it subsided after i stopped using it. Remember to do a patch test before using this. The formula is also a bit werid. When left for several days, a brown oil will start to separate. Again i also have problem with the color. I have fair light skin tone and this is still too light to be called flesh tone for me. Overall disappointed with the product and will probably stop using because my skin is irritated by it

Pimple cream

This drying cream act as my daily  pimple cream as well. Use it alternate  days as I realized this cream work well  and faster but it do dry up the skin. If  compared to the drying lotion, this is  easier to apply. Highly recommend for  the affordable price and effectiveness.

not recommended

It is really quite DRY cream, that it cannot blend into skin well. It works for the pimples, but not that impressive, for me. The color of this product is sort of green-yellow, it helps to gentle the red color of the pimple/bump, which is nice. Generally, i will not recommend this product to my friends, but it seems that other comments give very positive attitude......

For small bumps

It works as described... to be used for smaller bumps and small zits. rub the cream in until it absorbs into skin. Could be used during the say under or above foundation but would rather not as it has a strange smell and doesnt really blends into skin well. works to dry out smaller zits. Not for cystic/big acne.

Acne Skin BFF

When combined with Mario Badescu's buffering lotion, it speeds up the "acne drying" process and allows minimal coverage on red or inflamed small pimples. The product could be worn under foundation/ foundation primers and reduces the need to use concealers which allows your skin to breathe easier.

Doesn't work wonders but effective

the only drying cream I would use, literally. It smells really great, and whenever i have a zit, I would apply a chunk on my zit for one hour and head for breakfast then go back home, wash my face, take a tad bit and apply it twice, blending it in before i apply my makeup.

so-so

I was impressed for the first few weeks I've been using it. Small bumps disappeared and pimples dried out too fast! But as I keep using it (for a few months), seems like the effect is not like the first time. Maybe when your skin has adapted, it may not be effective as before.

Kinda love it and hate it

this drying cream kinda works i guess, but if i were to use it everyday on my pimples or pores, my skin becomes dry and flaky. so i would suggest you only use it every few days so you wont dry your skin out

Good night time spot treatment

I used this on a large and inflammed pimple, and it went a way within 3 days. I also use it on pimples which I have popped so that the remaining gunk inside can be sucked out drom the pore. I feel that this product helps to make the pimple heal faster. I use this product with the buffering lotion for best results. 1/2 star taken off because the cream is opaque and therefore highly visible, thus impossible to be worn during the day to the office etc. Aside from this, the product works well without drying the skin too much like how benzoyl peroxide does.

Does what it says

Nothing special about this product, it does what it says. Probably more applicable to usage on a wide surface area as a little goes a long way. I have used this for several months and not even a quarter used and  product has already dried up.  I prefer the spot treatment drying lotion as it is stronger and mire targeted.
