    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    It keeps skin clear.
    When I feel a breakout coming, I put the dry lotion right onto the area.
    You need a Q-tip to apply the pink lotion at the bottom of the bottle, I only apply over night.
    When the breakout makes it to the surface I continue to put the dry lotion on the breakout until it completely dries out.

            I used this before due to the occasional breakout. It worked really good but now I don't know if it's a new formula or what. It took over a week for my breakout to even start clearing up. I'll try something else.

                    I apply this product on acne after watching and moisturizing my face for overnight. And I must say, it doesn't really seem to have an effect. I used it for three nights in a row on the same blemish and it did start going away, but it was already on its way out. Plus it has a very strong smell. It's just unfortunate

                        The Drying Lotion is not designed to target milia. We suggest contacting your dermatologist for proper treatment and removal of milia.

                        A:

                        The Drying Lotion performs at its best when both the pink sediment and clear liquid are used together. When either one of these runs out - its time to buy a new bottle.

                      Hi, I always see great reviews about this product. Everytime I put it on before bed, and wake up the next morning nothing is there. The pink stuff isn't on my face but the pimple is there.. does this mean the stuff in penetrating in my skin or just rubbing off ?

                        A:

                        Drying Lotion is most effective when used on whiteheads. DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE. Before bed (after cleansing and toning), dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Dab directly on the whitehead; do not rub in. Let dry and rinse off in the morning. Do NOT use on broken skin.
                        It is okay if the product rubs off during the night, this will not affect its effectiveness.

                        It will not effect the product. If contents get shaken during packing and delivery, place the bottle on a flat surface until the layers separate and the pink sediment rests on the bottom.
