This drying lotion does exactly that. Use a q-tip to place over an irritating pimple and overnight the bump is largely reduced. Miracle product.

This stuff really works! It is the best treatment to quickly dry up a pimple. Put a dot on the pimple before bed, and it will be gone by morning.

I've heard a lot about this drying lotion or like other girls call it "pimple cream". How many of you have tried it and honestly have had a good out come? Would be nice to hear from the girls next door 🙂
