Great products fir Cystic acne

Pros

  • Reduces size and appearance overnight

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Cystic acne

    Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

    I have mild Cystic acne and occasionally get bad Cystic clusters. I've heard very good things about Marion Badescu and especially the drying lotion. Doing research before buying, I learned that their buffering lotion was great for Cystic acne, which is why I bought the kit instead on individual products. The drying lotion does live up to the hype, but it's the buffering lotion that I am obsessed with!!!! It is mostly clear and wears very well under makeup! The mask that's included isn't my favorite so far. It's far too heavy IMO to wear under makeup and to call it a "concealer" is an extreme stretch.
    All in all, these are great products!!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

            I was skeptical about these products but after using every drug store brand acne treatments, these high end products work wonders! You definitely get what you pay for and it's definitely worth the price. I started using as directed on each bottle and began to see results in days! All that's left are my scars and my cystic acne is almost gone. I've used up most of the products with Murad's acne clearing kit.

              I have several cystic (underground) zits at one time especially around my time of month. The buffering lotion shrinks them and zaps the pain overnight! The drying lotion smoothes out my bumpy skin.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

                I probably didn't give this product enough time, but I think I have the type of acne that it is not effective on (hormonal). It smells strongly of it's primary ingredient, rubbing alcohol, which can be unpleasant directly next to your nose. There are a number of good reviews for this product, but it didn't work for me unfortunately.

                      The Acne Repair Kit contains products to help spot treat blemishes. The Drying Lotion will help to shrink whiteheads overnight, the Drying Cream targets small, under the skin bumps and blemishes, and the Buffering Lotion will help to clear up painful, under-the-skin blemishes.
                      The Acne Starter Kit (http://www.ulta.com/acne-starter-kit?productId=xlsImpprod6200813) is a daily regimen designed to help clear up any existing blemishes, while also preventing new breakouts. The kit features our Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 - this is our go-to moisturizer for acne prone skin.

                      The Drying Lotion and Drying Cream in the Acne Repair Kit will help to target different types of blemishes. If used only on the affected areas, it should not over dry the rest of your skin. The Buffering Lotion in the kit is designed to target deep, cystic, hormonal acne.

                      A:

                      Some of the products in the Brightening Kit are not recommended for acne erupted skin - specifically the Whitening Mask. Depending on the type and severity of your breakouts, you might want to wait to begin using the Brightening Kit until your active breakouts have diminished.
