It worked well over night!!!!! My leaky popped pimples dried right up and size reduced to about half.. they are now healing. It however did nothing for the ones that have not reached the surface/popped.
SO, I had an allergic reaction to a grapefruit-C gel moisturizer sample that i recieved from my local spa. It gave me little clear bumps ALL OVER my face. Every single one of them turned into a pimple.

Enter, this popped pimple paste. Yes, I am a picker.. i was SO good.. I didnt pick and i let the scabbies form after they popped.. but everytime i wash my face the scabs half come off again... so i just end up pulling them off. The ones that were left are annoying.. yes i picked :( SAD FACE. Anyways, So i am trying this for the first time tonight. I will update tomorrow morning with the results of what I see

I cleansed my face with my regular purity by philosophy cleaser, applied bed time for breakouts by dermalogica and then a light moisturizer. I then put this C&C popped pimple paste on all of my pimples that have that pitted look (popped/oozing/crater).

First impressions:
The bottle is easy to work with. I dont like putting the paste on with my finger so i dispense the product til a blob comes out the top of the little bottle, and then dab it on, santize top after finished (I have never had a problem doing this with any other pimple product). It comes out as a blue paste/lotion.. and goes on easy.. very easy to cover the pimple as it is no clear so you can SEE where its going.

It doesnt have any smell, it did not sting. It dried to a white paste and then gets really hard. Reminds me of an aspirin application actually.

I got this from Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada for close to 8 dollars. It is such a tiny bottle... so it is expensive. But, i figure it was worth a shot.. if i hate it, i can return it.

Very easy to dispense.. the product is not runny so a ton doesnt come out the top. I prefer the clean and clear advantage (silver bottle) packaging with the pointy tip better.. i think it is more precise. But Whatever, if it works it works.

-Its bright white (like tooth paste)... yes, my family laughed at me

I will update tomorrow AM to let you know how well it worked :)
