Did not work for me

My Mizon acence blemish out pink spot drying lotion ran out so I purchased this at Watsons. I thought I was saving money while at the same time getting a product with the same results because this is less than half the price of the Mizon variant. I found out after a week that I wasted 299 pesos with this product because it did nothing for my hormonal acne which the Mizon one was able to address. Perhaps this will work for those with minor pimples but it surely did not work for me.

Effective on drying up my pimples

This product really lives up to its claims of drying up pimples. I thought it doesn't work at first when I first used it because I used to shake its product before dipping in a q-tip and it took too long to dry my pimples. My friend recommended me the mario badescu one which looks kind of similar to this but I wasn't so sure about buying that because of the price so I just stick with this one. Then I tried on putting the product without shaking it and just getting the pink sediments at the bottom, it worked best for me. It just kind of sting a little on my skin when I apply it on a pimple, tiis ganda lang talaga. When applied before going to sleep makikita mo in the morning na medyo nada-dry na yung pimples, I only apply it during the night before going to sleep because I don't want naman na may pink patches sa mukha ko when I go out of the house.

I had break outs lately that's why I searched on the internet skincare products that would get rid off pimples. And this product is almost on every youtube videos. I was curious about this one and bought and tried it. It was so cute since its powder is pink, very ununsual for skincare products-- for me. It made my pimples dry that quick and easy. So shockiiing! Until now I use this whenever there's poppin up.

dries up pimpy!

Before using the product I suggest to try the compatibility test first to avoid irritation, even though it claims to be good for all skin types still it pays to be safe. I have been using this product every night after my skin care routine for almost two weeks now and I’m glad I can share my experience. It felt cool when I applied it on my zits and it stung but very bearable. The next day I noticed that some of the pimples dried out and some cystic acne developed pus. I had a hard time convincing myself not to pop the zits since they are very tempting. I do have to say that this is not an overnight cure for pimples unless they are very small then they would dry out the next day, but it is effective. After 3 days or so I noticed some of my pimples dried out. I did notice very minimal peeling though but it’s not irritating. I am satisfied with the effects of this product. It works well. A lot of people say that this is a dupe for the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t really confirm that. Nonetheless, this product receives my thumbs up when it comes to curing my acne.

it works but

It definitely works. When the first time i tried it, it really helped my pimples to dry up. Although, i dont know if its just me or anything but now that i keep on using this, the effects aren't as noticeable as before. It doesnt dry up cystic acne. Just the small ones and it doesnt dry up overnight either, it takes a bit of time as well. But yeah it's good enough for its price but don't expect too much from it.

I've been using this ever since I started college and it really helped me with my breakouts. For most parts of my life, I had clear skin and only had a one or two pimple here and there but everything changed when I went to college, I'm sure a lot of people can relate! I still haven't fully resurrected my skin. My skin would get a breather for once in a while but then the breakouts will come again :( I found this drying lotion through a beauty guru who swears that this is a dupe for the Mario Badescu one so I tried it out. To my surprise it was effective! This would get rid of pimples and tiny bumps!!! Plus its not so hard on the skin!! After repurchasing this so many times, I noticed that it works but you will not get instant results. You have to be patient with this one!!! After 4-7days, my pimple will dry down to 60%. That is good enough for me since I've been struggling with acne for so long now, patience really is a virtue. Also, this didn't really help me in terms of acne scars. I noticed that it is only effective on drying out active pimple (don't know what term to use but i hope u get it) and tiny bumps. Nevertheless, I would definitely repurchase this again!
