I have a quick question. Is there any harm on applying BP to a pimple without washing it first? Say you wake up and wash with a cleanser, and in the middle of the day you notice a big pimple but don't have time to wash. Is it harmful to apply some BP to it? Obviously, it would be more effective to wash first, but has anyone ever tried this without washing? Just wondering. Thanks!

Yep, I've done it before but only when I've been at home all day and my face has relatively little dirt compared to when I've been out. I can't say whether it made any difference to the effectiveness but it didn't cause me any harm.
