This lotion does wonders for skin, it works as a moisturizer, makeup primer, sunscreen and oil control lotion. It dries and heals pimples. However, I have hormonal acne so it doesn't prevent break outs. Just an advice: dont apply too much if you're going out, unless you want to look like you're wearing a "Goth white" powder cream.

Not a cure but helps a lot

Heals my blemishes fast and dries out pimples. Helps relieve itchiness.

Doesn't cause irritation unlike other acne topical treatments.

I'd rather use this than BP or SA.

Best lotion for all skin types

I've been using this product for the past few months & must say it is God sent! Started using it when I was breaking out to the extent that my skin was irritated all the time, despite using the most expensive products in the market. Regular use helped get rid of all sorts of skin problems.

Pros- perfect as a makeup primer,

reduced dark spots/acne scars considerably,

skin glows naturally & also reduces fine lines to a certain extent

irritation relieved instantly

inexpensive & available readily at all pharmacies.

helps treat acne in oily skin with great results

Cons- dries out the skin a little so use in combination with a moisturizer for better results,

results improve with regular use over a period of time, not overnight but totally worth for the price & availability. Not to forget, great skin is back!!!

Used it for a week all it does is dry out your skin..not even the pimples smells bad too. Could be the fact my skin has become immune to zinc but i genuinely believe that has nothing to do with it.

Honestly, I don't know whether it works or not concerning acne because I haven't used it in that sense but it is an AMAZING makeup primer if you suffer from oily skin! Apparently, it can have a plateau effect so I interchange between this and milk of magnesia, which is also a phenomenal primer! Although I said I'm not sure about it working for acne, I do think that less oil can mean less clogged pores. I also get pimples much less now-a-days. This may have contributed. Who knows?? It's worth a try!

Perfect, Dear! Very nice analogy, i'm using it for exactly same purposes!
Calms down my skin

I purchased Calamine for a rash I got from an allergic reaction and I wanted to try it on my acne. I have cystic acne along my cheek bone and under my jaw that gets very irritated and itchy. I applied a bit of Calamine on my spots and it calmed down my face instantly. The pimples didn't go away but they were noticeably less puffy and less red. The only downside is that its extremely drying so don't use too much at once.

not for acne

This is a necessity in everyone's house because it's great for calming rashes and irritations. It's a must-use for chicken pox.

I've also seen it advertised as a face care product but I would never use if for that. I'm pretty sure it blocked my pores and caused me to break out.

soooo good

It fades acne scars and cold sore scars and it dries out spots and pimples this is better than BP or all the other expensive trash they try to market to us.

BP and other harsh treatments always left my skin red and damaged. Thank the heavens for giving us calamine, truly, I am so grateful to have such a gentle but effective treatment. Spots wont disappear over night but with patience and regular application at night they will gently dry up leaving no scars or marks -which is amazing as I usually pick or use BP and end up with horrible scars.

Great for treating rashes and irritation all over the body but not for acne

I found out about this treatment on acne.org; and seeing as it is inexpensive I decided to give it a try- and I have to say after about 3 months of using this, I am extremely impressed. It is not a miracle product by any means, but it SIGNIFICANTLY improves acne and inflammation. It reduces the size and redness of active pimples, and I love to use it daily to prevent any future breakouts. It is drying so I use it in conjunction with Argan oil and sunscreen. I apply it all over my face before bed mixed with Argan oil, and repeat in the morning under makeup. It doesn't change the color of makeup and doesn't change the way it appears on my face. It can also be used as a spot treatment. I love this product and will continue to use it
