    Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair 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.

        I bought this for my teens. My daughter who has moderate acne uses the drying cream, son who has deeper acne uses the buffering lotion and I use the drying lotion for spot treatment. All are working great for my family.

              The buffering lotion doesn't smells the best however it works great. The drying lotion takes care of acne so quickly!! The drying cream is also a great effective treatment for overnight! Full size, great value.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

              I use this every night as my daily regimen. I use it like it says on the box the drying lotion works awesomely great on white heads, the buffering lotion is great on cystic acne, and the drying cream works best for the problem areas. Before I started using these products I had really bad acne. I had a combination of white heads and really painful cystic bumps along my jawline. After using the acne kit for about a week now I have started to notice that all my cystic acne is gone.i have no pain. Of course I have scars but that'll go away within time. White heads are gone in the morning and shrink in size. This stuff is amazing and I highly recommend it. Only thing is that the drying cream smells a little awful. I saw a video review of the products and she said she put the cream under hr makeup. So I tried it. and I won't do it again I was able to smell it all day and my face was getting a little itchy. I don't think it's recommended to put under makeup!You won't get disappointed with this kit, everything about it is so worth it. Enjoy!

                I picked up this trifecta because I couldn't find a single bottle of the drying lotion but oh my gosh, I'm glad I couldn't find the single bottle. You can use this product sparingly and after about three uses you can tell it's fading dark spots and acne scars. Plus it gives instructions on how to limit usage if you have sensitive skin, like me. Lil pricey but it'll last a long time and comes with a free gift so I say go for it. Good investment.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

                  I am always frustrated by the fact that it's still possible to have bad acne while you're starting to worry about signs of aging! Seriously, can we get a break?! Who wants to look like a wrinkly teenager? I'm exaggerating, but I'm sure most of us can relate.
                  If you're on the fence and you're reading reviews to help you make a decision, don't hesitate another moment. Get it. What have you got to lose other than unsightly blemishes? Plus, ULTA has a fabulous return policy, anyway. So, if for some crazy reason it doesn't work for you, they make it very easy to returnour up This stuff is amazing.
                  Incredible.
                  For some reason I stopped using this highly effective trio late last year and my skin revolted. And it was revolting.
                  Cutting to the chase:
                  - It does what it says it does
                  - It isn't overly irritating
                  - the ingredients are simple and effective
                  - you can use it everyday
                  **it cleared up a 6 month breakout cycle in less than a week**
                  Just like anything else: results may vary. I would feel terrible if someone took my advice and it exacerbated their acne...but that seems unlikely.

                  If you have hormonal/cystic acne, you're over the age of 23-25 and you've tried everything on the market to reduce the embarrassing cycle of acne, I highly recommend this Triumverate of acne-busting products. Also, just like your mother said: " If you keep picking at it it won't' get better!" It's true.

                      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.
