    This product is very runny which makes it kind of difficult to apply. I used this for those under the skin pimples that are painful. Not sure that it actually worked to get rid of them

    Buffering lotion

    It’s very runny and it’s more of a liquid then a lotion, it smells strongly of alcohol. If I wanted to buy rubbing alcohol I would just have. I used it once and probably won’t again the smell is overwhelming, would of liked a sample before purchasing.

    Great acne RX

    I have been buying this buffering lotion for years. I find that whenever I’m suffering from the occasional break out, just a few applications of this buffering lotion calms my skin down within a few days. It’s got a unique formula that absorbs quickly and feels as if it is bringing potent anti-acne medicine to your skin. I will continue to buy this.

    Bought this for spot

    Bought this for spot treating hormonal, cystic acne. It has been working very well for my skin and I even find it works on typical, non-cystic breakouts as well. I don’t find it to be over-drying either.

    This product is a must for me!! I use it in my skincare routine daily and find myself repurchasing the item. This is great for under the skin spots. I highly recommend!
