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.

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

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.

          I bought this product because I've had great experiences with drying lotions, my favorite one from Mario Badescu which costs roughly $20, so it is a tad more expensive than this one. But the Bye Bye Blemish Drying lotion does nothing. As soon as you apply the treatment onto your face, you can check within 10 minutes, the product disappear and leaves a faint pink color on that area you applied it, leaving your acne fully exposed once again. The point of the acne treatment is to cover the acne while killing all the bacteria. This product did no such thing and was such a waste of money. Do yourself a favor and try out the HappyMe version or the Mario Badescu.

            I have seen this type of product for at least three times the money with the same ingredients and this works the same way. Easy to use, I would recommend using it at bedtime that way you arent walking around with pink dots on your face. Dab a Qtip in the product, remember NOT to shake the product, dab on your blemish and it dries quickly!!!

            This is the best acne clearing medication I have EVER used. I have been using it for over 10 years. All those expensive, fancy packaged items are just a gimmick to make money. Stay with this stuff. Skip some days now and then so as to not dry your skin too much. Otherwise enjoy your clear complexion.

            I dab this on the occasional zit and it dries it out quickly. I apply this at night and do find it can smudge a little on sheets, however, they are white so we do not have bleaching problems. I suspect if you use this with colored fabrics there could be an issue. I continue with my usual skin care routine while using this product so I have not experienced any over-drying or sensitivity issues. I previously used the Kate Sommerville version that sells for over $20.00. I have found no difference between this less expensive one and the designer brand product. Apply with a cotton swab and wrap the swab in tissue before discarding if you do not use liners in your waste basket/can.

              If you have purchased the high end versions of this, stop! This is a dupe for them, at a fraction of the cost. Exactly the same ingredients. I have used many acne products and dry lotions are the only thing that have been seriously effective. For normal spots, they dry up within a day or two. Cystic acne spots take longer. If your skin is dry, it will make it a bit more dry so I suggest using a moisturizer.

                I was a massage therapist and worked in a day spa. They sold this product under another name. It works great for one pimple, very strong. I wouldn't use it for acne, however.
