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.

Sensitive skin, beware!

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

      I regret spending money on this item. This was another lesson for me to not go crazy with facial products that have worked for everyone else, even if that includes a lot of sensitive skin people. Sensitive skins are not created equal, it's not a homogenous group, and we will react to different products differently. While this may have worked wonders for many people other there, this broke me out really badly. Once I stopped using it, and washed all my sheets & pillow covers that got contaminated with this smelly stuff, my face cleared up in 2 days. It was amazing. So, sensitive skin people, beware!!!

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

        I just finished my first bottle of this -this is the exact same product that I was given by a $$$$ dermatologist while I was in Singapore, except at a fraction of the price and with different packaging! Bottom line is, this stuff works. I put it on thick on any bigger spots or if I feel one coming on under the skin, and layer it on thin on any areas that may have those very small bumps under the skin. I plan to stockpile extra bottles of this!

        The weather in Singapore can be like a steam room during the summer, and I think having to wear makeup in that environment was making my skin even worse. I found that if there was something that I needed to get quite made-up for, I could wear a very thin layer of this stuff underneath a green tinted primer before putting my foundation on, and it helped to keep my makeup from melting off and prevent further breakouts moreso than just a primer by itself. On the flip side though, in most climates this stuff can be quite drying to your skin.

          I bought this product for my granddaughter. Her acne is fairly bad, Proactive just made it worse. My daughter used this in high school, and she recommended it. Im glad she did, because it works great!

              After checking out so many good reviews, I thought the product can solve my acne problems or at least improve my skin status especially when recently I had break outs. But it turned out that nothing has been improved and I didn't even find it dries my acnes at all.
              I won't buy it again.

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

                Even in my mid-adulthood years, I get a little "bump" from time to time. This quickly and effectively gets the job done. I make sure I still keep the area moisturized because this product is very drying, I find that if I use it along with a little dab of cortisone first, it is extra effective for me, and reduces swelling and redness, I have been using the Kate Somerville product that is very similar to this, but at a cost of $22.00. Once I tried this product, I have no reason to use the "Kate" product again, especially with the incredible price difference.

                    This works the same as Mario Badescu for about half the price. It's a great drying lotion for small and larger breakouts. I get adult acne occasionally in my chin area, and this clears it up fast. My son uses it too.
