I was really excited about this but it just doesn’t do anything but dry the pimple out and then make it worse a day after.

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 🙂
