Rated 4.15 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
I've had some bumps on my chin for ages, not exactly acne, but definitely something. Maybe whiteheads? Either way, I've tried a lot of products and couldn't get rid of them. I tried this drying cream and it's AMAZING. I've been using it for a week and there is a huge difference. I took off one star because it doesn't seem to make any difference with actual acne. I still love it though because of how much it has helped with the bumps on my chin! I've had no issues with it being too drying, though I don't have sensitive skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review New Formula
I've been using this product for over a year. I used to love it. It worked really well and didn't contain a long list of ingredients or parabens. I bought a new one recently and it started to make me break out. I compared the ingredients with my old one (old ingredients are what ulta lists) and I was disappointed to find tbey changed the formula by adding a lot of new ingredients and parabens. Sadly I will be returning as it doesn't work like it used to.

so I used this for about a month and it helped shrink the size of my pimples dramatically. However, I've been using regularly and I noticed out of nowhere that I have large brown spots where I put it. I've been super busy and I didn't notice before . Now I'm super self conscious about it. Not sure if spots are going to permanent or temporary. I have rocea and face my face is pretty fair and the spots look like brown moles.
Strong smell, little results
Ems from Richmond va
I'm not typically thrown off by smells, but this is STRONGLY scented. I haven't noticed much results with it either. The drying calamine cream they have is a better option for those with acne.
smells bad but works well
Khamm from MD
I've had acne prone skin since stopping the pill. Facials and peels help but I have a hard time controlling acne-causing bacteria on my face between peels. Benzoyl peroxide and sulfur are antibacterial. BP works but dries out my skin (and bleaches everything) so I looked for sulfur treatments. I liked that I could leave this on overnight instead of as a mask. I dab this on acne as a last step to my skincare routine. It's the first spot treatment that actually works for me. It does smell bad but it's worth it.
I would buy this product again

I've been using it 4 times a week for a month now and it works great to dry up my pimples.

During my pregnancy my skin has been on a Rollercoaster! This product is pregnancy safe and works overnight to zap those stubborn pimples!!
Rachael from New Jersey
I was using Kate Somerville eradikate for a while and it did not work at all. I tired this and wow it dries your acne out fast! I definitely recommend. The smell isn't bad in my opinion it doesn't have fragrance in it so it takes on the smell of the ingredients. FRAGRANCE IS BAD FOR YOUR SKIN!! To me it was an earthy smell. The texture is almost like a moose which I like. I dap mine on to my skin until it's absorbed. A little goes a long way with this product. Overall I like this product and I do recommend it
Dries up nasty zits quickly
Shelby from North Carolina
Used this to dry up some zits right before my wedding from a recommendation from an esthetician.. worked well.
SMM from California
It smells HORRIBLE!!! If you're sensitive to smell, hard pass. Run.
Susy from texas
This cream works perfectly to dry out pimples.
This works well
Tigger from Pitt County NC
Having a need to dry up areas that became prevalent from wearing a mask all day-this product works well. It is a great cover and also drys as needed.
Annoying to Use
Glendeetz from Irvine, CA
Helped with small bumps. I've read somewhere that you can use this under makeup, but I would not. The cream is very thick, and is not something that disappears under makeup. Got to try this from the Acne Repair Kit, and this was my least favorite out of the 3 in the pack.
Pass on this one
Lily from Oregon
I was hoping this would work for my acne. I used it for a few weeks and never really noticed a difference.

i love it so much idk what else to say

Doesn't work on oily skin ! Save your money !
It Really Worked!!!

Recommended by an Ulta employee with sensitive skin....Glad I took her advice!
Logs from Maryland
I love this product! When I feel a pimple coming on I make sure I apply this cream over the area before bed for at least two nights and then I never see the pimple form! I also put it on my nose sometimes before bed because my nose is pretty oily. It doesn't dry out my skin or irritate it. I haven't had a pimple since I found out how to actually use this.
I like it....
Ble from Biloxi, MS
I don't rub it in, I use as a spot treatment when I'm gonna be home for a while. Does great in reducing redness and size.
Heather from Colorado
Love this product and I make sure I never run out!
SAVED MY SKIN
Taylor from Massachusetts
I have had small bumpy under the skin acne on my chin and forehead for years now and nothing ive ever use has gotten rid of them, until i tried this and my skin is completely smooth!!! Worked like magic!! This is my new go to acne treatment! It is a little drying but still works great in combo with moisturizer
Great For Spot Treatments
Melanie from Texas
Does this product have a smell? Yes. Is it bearable considering it works like a charm? Yes. The smell honestly isn't that bad and the product works so I wouldn't stop using it because of the smell. A little goes a long way and the jar will probably end up drying up before you get through it (packaging says 6m but it will dry up at about 12m) You will definitely get your moneys worth out the the jar. Works great on stopping the blemishes that are still under the skin.
Works decently, Smells horrible
AJ from South Carolina
After using for the first time last night, I can definitely see a decrease in the redness and swelling in my acne. The big downside is this stuff smells HORRIBLE! Like, I can't get away from my own face horrible. I was definitely getting no love from my better half after I applied it.
Not sure how I feel about it
Cheyy from Tulsa, Ok
Okay so I love Mario's products butttt..... this one isn't on my top 5 favorites. I have very oily skin and acne prone skin. It did what it was supposed to but the horrible smell makes me not wanna use it. And I put it on before I sleep and it's tolerable. :) I'd buy again.tho.
Stinks But Works Well
BeThankfulToday from Chicago, IL
I notice a visible improvement from blackheads and oiliness after using this product every time. It won't last more than a day or two if you don't use it every day, though. I notice such strong results, that I've started using on my chest and back when I have issues there. Only downside is the horribly strong odor of it - very chemical-smelling.
Julianne from Detroit, mi
I've had acne for over 10 years and nothing has worked to reduce my pimples. I tried going to the dermatologist and getting curology but nothing has worked better than this cream.
The Good Stuff!
Jo from Ann Arbor
This product will dry out your skin if you don't complete your regimen after using it. I have a very oily T-zone with large pores and this mask corrected the large pores overnight. It dissolves dead skin cells, bacteria, and excess sebum that sits in your pores. I use it twice per week and apply it with a foundation brush to keep it fun :)
