I like this for cystic pimples. It doesn't really work on my white head pimples. This is also great after you popped a pimple

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 🙂
