I love this product to combat my blemishes, it doesn't dry out your entire face like most drying lotions. I love this product.

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 🙂
