Alcohol smell is a little strong, but works really well during the night time to help pimples dry out and not progress.

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 🙂
