      Don't get my wrong, this product works..but.. it isn't the BEST acne product I have used. I think for the price tag it should work better than it does. It works to an extent.. but it's one of those meh products.

          I went to a wedding over the weekend and my teenage daughter has been battling the dreaded teen acne and we have tried a lot of thing also my sister just had a baby and was having hormonal acne both were pretty bad and we needed something that worked quick cause the wedding was the next day. The lady told us this will work overnight. I thought no way! Well I got them each a bottle and by the morning both my daughter and sisters skin looked amazing! I would say 2 night and compleatly clear 100% but even 1 night and they where barely noticeable. Shocked and a fan for life! This is serious stuff people! You will not be upset you spent the money on this product cause it's worth so much more especially to a teen girl!

                          No, the Drying Lotion will not be affected due to shaking the product. Leave the product on a flat surface and wait for it to settle (you will see the pink sediment on the bottom and the clear liquid on top).

                          Our Drying Lotion does not have an expiration date, rather it has a PAO of 24 months. This means that the product is good for a period of 24 months after the point of opening. Otherwise, we suggest you purchase a new bottle whenever either the liquid or pink powder runs out.
