        Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

        This is one of the best spot treatments I've ever used. It works quickly overnight to reduce the size of pimples. It doesn't really get rid of redness though, which is a downside. It also dries out my skin (I have dry skin) so I tend not to use it every single night unless I really need to get rid of a pimple. Overall, it's great and works well.

            I love the anti acne serum! I have repurchased this three times. I use it after the special cucumber lotion. At first I was skeptical because it's so gentle I didn't think it would any thing for my acne, but after about a week i could really see a difference.

            Fast acting and non drying. Skin already looks visibly clearer and it's been 2 days. I like it.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

              I suffer from cystic acne mostly on my cheeks. I've been using this acne serum for a little over a week and haven't had any new cystic acne breakouts. I've used several Mario Badescu products and they seem to help but none have them have worked as well as I expected given the extremely positive reviews. This acne serum is an exception. I wished I would've have given it a shot sooner.

              • Q:

                Nothing has helped my acne as much as this little guy! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I am just wondering if my skin will ever develop an immunity to the product because I know that can happen as your skin changes over time. Just wondering if it could happen with this product?

                  Hello and Thank you for your question. Sooo happy to hear that the Anti Acne Serum has helped you! Although you will not develop an immunity to the product, you can gradually go from using the product every night to every other night and see if the reduced frequency of use is still helping keep you breakout free.

                I recently purchased the anti acne serum and the vitamin c serum. Should I alternate using them every other night? I get hormonal breakouts and I'd also like to fade acne scars and even my complexion.

                  A:

                  You can alternate usage or depending on the size and location of your acne prone areas, you can apply the Vitamin C Serum everywhere - except the acne prone areas - and apply the Anti Acne Serum to those acne prone areas.

                  A:

                  You can use both products overnight but just not layering them together. They are intended to be applied to different types of skin issues. Drying Lotion is a spot treatment for whiteheads. Anti Acne Serum is a preventative treatment for acne prone areas. Both should be applied overnight to clean, dry skin.

              • Q:

                I don't really have problems with acne but I do have issues with the occasional pimple and lots of blackheads. I'm wondering if this will work to unclog the pores with out drying my face out because I tend to have drier skin. If this isn't the product for that use, can I get a recommendation?! Thanks :)

                  A:

                  Anti Acne Serum is a preventative serum that you can apply at night to acne prone areas to help prevent those occasional pimples, but it is not intended to address blackheads. It is designed to balance and hydrate, so it will not dry out your skin. We do offer our Silver Powder to help target and diminish blackheads. http://www.ulta.com/silver-powder?productId=xlsImpprod6200683

                  A:

                  I would suggest that you apply the Anti Acne Serum only to those acne prone areas and apply the Seaweed Night Cream everywhere else. I think layering the two would not be the best option. Rather, you should apply them independently to different zones.

                I also have small, clogged pores on my cheeks and forehead. I assume that is what they are as they are small, raised, bumps with no head. Would this be a suitable solution to treat and prevent these? Thanks!
