If you ever have a pimple just put some drying lotion on it before you go to bed and the next day it is like it was never there

Works well to lower the swelling of an inflamed pimple overnight. Doesn't completely get rid of it in one night, but it helps!

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 🙂
