This is the overnight pimple trick that I swear by

I know, I know... you've probably read a million stories about products or techniques that promise to get rid of your pimples overnight. Like many of you, I was skeptical too. Then, I was introduced to a $17, 50-year-old product I'd never heard of.

There are few things worse than waking up in the morning only to discover that a zit has decided to take over your face. Somehow, it always has a way of knowing that you either have an interview or a first date planned for later that night. As a woman, I have become well aware that my skin can play tricks on me (especially at the worst times), and finding that one product that ACTUALLY solves my skin issues is life-changing.

Two years ago, I walked into my roommate's room in panic over a pimple the size of a penny that was right in the middle of my cheek. She instantly handed me a small glass bottle that she called "pink cream", and warned me never to shake the bottle. I applied one small dot on the zit with a Q-Tip and went to bed. Not only did the size decrease immensely, but the redness was completely gone. I grabbed my computer and wasted no time adding Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion to my shopping cart, along with a few other products by the same brand. I couldn't believe that most Mario Badescu products were under $25!
