    awesome product

    By Clarissa

    Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

    Big fan of this line. Acne products can be tricky since they trend to dry out your skin but this one is amazing. You do have to give it a few days to work, it's not an overnight fix but I lather it all around my face since it's a serum after cleansing and woke up today with a completely clear face. If it can get rid of hormonal acne that's saying something!

      Pros

      • Absorbs Quickly
      • Goes On Smoothly
      • Not Greasy

      Cons

      • Expensive and doesn't go far

      Best Uses

      • Acne/blemish prevention/care

      Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

      This stuff works but so does pretty much anything with sal acid in it. I like the other natural ingredients in it and it's not too drying while still being somewhat effective so when I can afford it, I pick some up. When I'm short on cash though, I find a drugstore product like Yes to Tomatoes which is a similar product with natural ingredients for half the price. So I guess I'd suggest it if it's in your budget because it does work and is a nice product.

      • Goes On Smoothly

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Bedtime

        Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

        I have been struggling with hormonal acne, and it is a challenge to get rid of. I have tried everything from infomercial products to prescription medications and nothing has worked. I finally decided to try Mario Badescu's acne products, and I am so glad that I did! Within a week, I saw a noticeable reduction in my acne- both redness and size of pimples. This serum goes on so nicely, and does not over-dry my skin.

        I use it with the acne facial cleanser, and special cucumber lotion.

        • Q:

          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!

            A:

            May be used every night or as needed. Before bed (after cleansing and toning with teh Special Cucumber Lotion), apply a thin layer on acne-prone areas. This is NOT a spot treatment; instead apply to those acne prone areas to help prevent breakouts.

            A:

            The Anti Acne Serum should not be used in place of a nighttime moisturizer. This product is formulated to target acne-prone areas of the skin. It can also be used as a preventative treatment on areas you may frequently experience breakouts. We would recommend the Herbal Hydrating Serum (http://www.ulta.com/herbal-hydrating-serum?productId=xlsImpprod6200723&sku=2209861&_requestid=3579148) as a lightweight and oil-free option to use as a nighttime moisturizer that can be used with the Anti Acne Serum.

            Anti Acne Serum is oil free and is recommended for combination or oily skin. Anti Acne Serum contains salicylic acid. We would not recommend anyone with a sensitivity to salicylic acid use this product.

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            We recommend that you use our Anti Acne Serum as a preventative measure on acne prone areas. Since this product is designed to help balance, hydrate, and clear problematic skin, you could use it on areas that are dry but we would not recommend using it on dry, irritated skin. May be used every night or as needed. Before bed (after cleansing and toning), apply a thin layer on acne-prone areas.
