One hell of a pimple fighter!

I have tried our a bunch of other acne-drying gels and balms because I've been cursed with oily skin that inevitably leads to breakouts. Sigh. So, I'm no stranger to these little guys. This one, however, is the best out of everything I've tried. True to its description, it's non-drying but effectively kills acne. You know how some acne spot correctors almost dry up /burn off some skin? This baby ain't one of them. Just a good product that does what it says it does.

small but terrible!

my officemate introduced me to this product because of my breakout and to my surprise it really works like magic. it is so handy you can bring it anywhere whenever some nasty pimple suddenly pops out of nowhere. totally recommend this product. two thumbs up! aside from the fact that it is so gentle to your skin, you will not believe how it works overnight!

3mm per pimple and it works!

VMV's Red Better Spot Corrector really works! My mom bought this on sale and oh gosh I can't stop using it! It improves any kinds of acne on your face in just a day or two. The smaller ones will dry out in one day. It lessens redness as well. Also, you will be needing just a little of this one to work. To get you an idea, I use like 3mm per pimple. I highly recommend you to use it at night as a spot treatment.

Heals + Corrects: Most effective spot corrector for me!! <3

I've read good reviews about this product, but have to admit I was a little hesitant to purchase at first because it didn't get an overall 5-star review on BeautyMNL (lol petty, I know) and it was quite pricey for a tiny tube. However, I was desperate to find an effective spot corrector for the annoying scars that were left behind by those pesky pimples on my face. I've tried a couple of spot correctors - Kiehl's, Celeteque, products from my derma, etc. - unfortunately, none of those worked well for me. VMV's Red Better Spot Corrector has been the only effective treatment for me so far. I had a couple of blemishes on my forehead, nose, cheeks, chin (basically all over my face) and most of them have significantly lightened!! It feels as if it restores the moisture of the discolored blemishes/areas, contrary to the drying factor of most whitening products, and I feel that it not only corrects the spots, but heals them as well. For optimum results, I've observed that it works best right after the zit/spot has been completely treated/dried out. I use VMV's Id Monolaurin Gel to treat my acne, and they go super well together. So happy I discovered this through BeautyMNL, thank you! <3

I'm impressed!

I usually go for dermatologist-prescribed ointments for my spot-corrector fix, but decided to try this item out because of the good reviews. It's a bit pricey for the price but a little of the product goes a long way! What I do is put it on my pimple directly and it leaves a tingly sensation for a bit. My pimple dried out in two days!

Oh my! Why haven't I bought this magical tube before?! This stuff really works wonder. I'm suffering from hormonal acne and I've already done everything to lessen it but it was to no avail, then I saw this here and gave it a try and wow! It's the only thing that made my zits calm down. It's so gentle but very effective. For me, I saw the result overnight and bought more from this line. I've already bought another tube as a stock and would definitely always have this at hand. BLESS YOU VMV HYPOALLERGENICS, you saved me skin!

Gentle & effective, but not HG

I have the ID monolaurin gel too but it was better suited for tiny bumps & sweat acne so I decided to try this instead for those pesky, under-the-skin bumps and hormonal zits. It's okay enough, it seemed to dry them out in a couple of days and did not irritate my skin. This does not prevent marks though and this is by no means a miracle product, at least for me. I still like it. Will be handy to bring along for travel.

Non-drying Acne Balm

Unlike other acne treatments that make your skin very dry, this VMV Balm is mild enough to keep skin soft. It takes a bit of consistent application though (around 2-3 nights) to significantly reduce the redness. Overall good product for very sensitive skin and if you are patient to wait for the redness to subside.

Red better start using this ;)

The one thing I love about the Red Better Spot Corrector is that it always easily soothes the red bumps on my face. I have this horrible acne breakout especially when I'm about to get my period and this little tube saved my face from being all red with zits. If only it could prevent pimples from coming out then it would be really, really perfect :)

Non-irritating acne remover

I liked how this product dries up my pimples and reduces the redness of acne marks after a few days of usage but it doesn't totally remove small pimples overnight. I've been using this product for a week now and I have experienced great results so far even though it does not prevent small pimples to pop out of my face. It's been the mildest acne spot remover I've ever tried; it doesn't irritate my skin and it doesn't sting. Overall, I think I'll continue using this product and even buy again in the near future when I ran out of it already.

Skin saver

I bought vmv red better spot corrector after reading many good reviews about it. I put this onto troubled spots on my face after moisturizer and i woke up to a smaller, less irritated skin or pimples. Works everytime. Tip: to prevent it from being runny, store it inside your fridge. I do that with moisturizers and lip balms, too.
