If you ever have a zit/pimple, and want it to go away, use this. However, the changes don't happen overnight but is very effective.

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 🙂
