When I first bought this I really wasn't expecting it to work great. It was only a dollar so I figured why not try it?! Surprisingly, this works really well. I use it every time I start to get a pimple and it goes away a lot quicker then it would otherwise. The only downside of this product is that it will not apply on your face easy because it's a ball applicator. What I do is I rub it on my finger then apply it to my face. It's really not that bad, but I'm sure that gets more bacteria on it, which isn't good.
