I'm forty five and DESPERATE! I'm finally giving in and seeing a dermatologist this week. I hate my acne. I thought it would go away when I was 18. Lies, all lies. Stupid zits. I want one year of nice clear skin, before I get any older. So, I bought this and prayed. I had a moon-sized zit coming in on my chin last night and it's gone! Okay, I can feel a teeny bump, but the redness and swelling is gone. I love this so much I cover all acne areas once a week, and let it sit overnight. My husband hates the smell, but I told him to buy nose plugs. It works. Is my skin magically perfect. Sigh, no, but it does not claim magical properties. Just to dry out the nasty ones that I would normally pick at (yes, at forty five). ]

Warnings: FOLLOW DIRECTIONS! I get long one sided Q-tips like Doctors use. I drop it straight in and put it on a clean (CLEAN, but not exfoliated) face before bedtime. I use a thick layer and it takes a bit to dry on me, but not on the Q-tip, so I move fast. DO NOT shake this bottle. It won't work. Leave it on your counter and let it settle. You go to sleep smelling like rotten eggs and wake up smelling like a burned out match. Not pretty, but not horrible either. A light socket smell thing in your room will cover up any unpleasant odor and you have to pay to get rid of the zits.

I wake up in the morning and wash it off and my skin looks better. Believe me, I've tried it all. I am very happy and will continue to buy this product. I am a "high end brand" girl, but in these times, I will take something that does the same job as something more expensive and glom onto it. This works as well as Mario Badescu's drying product and you may not borrow it, look at it, or think about using it if you are my sons. They can get their own.

I bought this thing thinking it would do miracles like so many of these other people had said...NOT REALLY.

IT will help against small little minuscule white heads, but I tried to put it on a red mark that was sore (it wasn't a Bump, but it was sore) and it turned into a pimple. There was no miracle. Is it less severe than it should have been? Maybe...but it didn't make the pimple disappear. This happened to me with other places, including the nose and it might work on small little raised white heads , but i believe that's as good as it gets. I tried it on other pimples (bigger ones and i saw the pimple keep growing and swell up. AS much as people say it will reduce swelling when a pimple is peaking at its biggest point , the product does nothing, it just helps dry up lowered and non swollen pimples. But it wont work on swollen big pimples.

It Really Work!

    Comments about Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion, 1 fl oz:

    It really does work overnight! I have used every product out there, including prescriptions, oral medication like minocin and tetracycline, both of which have proven side effects. Although it is drying like all acne medication it works the quickest of anything I have used for a spot treatment. I highly recommend it.

      Comments about Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion, 1 fl oz:

      This product is great for cystic acne. I apply with a q-tip and hold for a few seconds, making sure that the entire area is covered. I even use under make-up, applying the same way except that (after drying) I gently rub most of the pink away with my fingertips. It reduces redness associated with inflammation. I purchased an expensive name brand previously of similar product and this works similar to that. This is not a miracle and may not clear up overnight (although some smaller acne do) but this is a must have!

        Comments about Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion, 1 fl oz:

        I have extremely sensitive skin and I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide. This does an amazing job at reducing my white heads. When I use this it dries it up immediately which can be a con too. Since it dries it up so much it gets really flakey and makeup does not look good over it. But if you can handle the dryness it reduces the zit so I only have it for 2 days opposed to my normal week. This will not get rid of acne marks but it will reduce the active pimple significantly. I only use this on whiteheads and it's awesome for that. I would not use this on blackheads because it dries out my skin so much.

        It's perfect to dry out that nasty little zit. Gone in one night. I like the sulfur better than the salicylic acid. If I have a very oily area, I will dampen a cotton round and place a very thin layer on it and it's gone.
        Be careful if you have sensitive, dry or heavily damaged acne skin

          Comments about Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion, 1 fl oz:

          Someone told me about this product years ago so I bought a bottle to have on hand for occasional pimple pop ups. I can't say how it works for severe acne, but for those pesky zits that always appear at the worst times, this stuff works! Just dip a q-tip into the bottle, all the way to the bottom and rub it directly onto the pimple, then LET IT DRY and don't touch it and the pimple will dry up and virtually be gone overnight. You can only use this at night though, because it's definitely pink! Also, DON'T shake it up before using! The sediment on the bottom of the bottle is what dries the pimple up. Oh and a bottle lasts a LONG time! I've only had to buy 2 bottles in the last few years! Wouldn't want to be without this product in my medicine cabinet!

            This was recommended by a friend and it works great for her. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. For a week time, my blemishes and pimples haven't shown signs of clearing up. I end up not using it at all. I don't know if it's my skin being a dry (somewhat dehydrated) type that this product didn't work. I did an experiment where I put a heavy night cream and then bye-bye blemish on, and somehow this method actually reduce the pimple within the night. Sometime it works and sometime it doesn't.
