I use this when I have a bad breakout. Drys them up within a few days. I wish it worked a bit faster but still does the job.

Dab it on at night and you'll wake up seeing a difference. Continue this for a few nights until you see it slowly going away.

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 🙂
