My Experience;

From the past few months this has been something I can’t live without. Believe me when i say this, I have literally brought three of these(one to take around while travelling, one to use at home and the other in my bathroom 😛 ). Since i have been getting a few here and there bumps nowadays that just show up suddenly, I make it a point to keep these handy. Its quite a travel friendly and easy to use roller ball pen. The smell of this product is very strong and smells like medication or maybe some what close to raw tea tree oil, not a con as the smell easily vanishes. The product when applied stings like crazy and leaves my skin a little red, not sure if thats a bad thing as long as it doesn’t break me out further 😛 . The effect of this is pretty decent , I do notice a reduction in the size of my bump within a few hours. Thats like fast for a cheap product like this. Applying it more than once a day really helps with those ugly zits (Mostly 3 times is good enough). This works very well if you have occasional breakouts and may not work well for extreme cases of acne. Severe cases at least take a day or 2 to actually clear up. But at the end I know this will always save me, so i tend to be cautious when I start seeing signs of a bump.Helps faster !! Theres one thing that bothers me , the roll on needs to be cleaned well before reusing it as it may aggravate already existing zits due to the transfer of bacteria.
