Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

I purchased this for specific breakouts, deep pimples, and cluster acne - I put drying cream on deep pimple and cluster breakout and in the morning they were 75% better- next night I used drying lotion and they completely cleared up- even the deep pimple is barely a bump!

        • Reduces size and appearance overnight

          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.

                  • Q:

                    Can I use the acne repair kit with the anti-aging kit? I am 36 years old and still suffer with acne on a regular basis. And also have fine lines and wrinkles. Lots of the acne skin care systems are too harsh and accelerate my wrinkles and skin aging. Hoping to find a system that can help with both.
