Bye bye monthly facials/pricking
This absolutely works for spot pimple treatments, most effective against those with pus (the white gooey thing) as compared to the still developing large bump. For the smaller bumps with pus, the product can dry those overnight and in the morning they're already flat, for the larger ones it takes a couple of days but you see a gradual flattening daily. I see a lot of negative reviews here saying it doesn't really work, but that can be due to 2 things: 1) maybe Witch Hazel isn't for your acne (because for me, I found that Witch Hazel is the most effective for me as by now, Adapalene and Salicylic does not do much anymore while Tea Tree and Glycolic has little to none); and 2) people are expecting clear skin just from the product. It does not. I think it's a bit too drying to put all over my face as a pimple prevention product which is why I only use it on pimples that pop up. And there is no such thing as an overnight treatment, as not even going to the derma to have a facial and get pimples pricked actually treat the pimple immediately, they only remove the pus and set the pimple on its path to healing. Also, no product can overcome stress. I was able to have no need to visit the derma when I settled into a proper routine with this product as the only thing I apply to pimples when they do come out, and for months no large pimple popped up, as at the beginning stage I already apply Witch Hazel Extract to dry them off. However during the last month even if there has been no change in my routine, I had a breakout again with large pimples that the Witch Hazel can't keep up with as my stress levels was through the roofs. I guess all in all, my point here is that it really does work, and I recommend this over pimple patches as those have a tendency to leave marks while this is basically derma facial-pricking without the pain, and if it doesn't, it's probably due to immunity to Witch Hazel or some other factor an extract can't overcome.
