    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I have been eyeing this product, just never knew if I really wanted to risk the price tag, but let me tell you! I'd recommend this to anyone with a few pimples, or little bumps or whatever!! I have oily skin so my skin is always breaking out in small spots but this product takes care of it all. Perfect for me. Worth every penny.

        I have tried so many spot treatments, including rxs from the dermatologist, and nothing works as well as this did! The pimples were not magically 100% gone, but overnight they were at least 85% down. Highly recommended!!

            The associate in the store said her mother uses it on occasion! I'm in the age group of her mother and darn if I had one of those painful undergrounders pop up on my chin and not have any zit zapper! The instructions say boldly DO NOT SHAKE! I thought about it, and when you buy those tubes, they dry out and you throw away money; the first 2 ingredients act like a moisture guard and sort of preserve it, so great science and it worked without causing excessive drying, like the tube stuff does! Love it!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

              I bought this because of all the great reviews. Usually I go off the negative reviews because my skin seems to be more in line with the minority. I should've listened to those reviews. This stuff didn't do anything for me but break me out! I put on burgeoning pimples &they would be erupted the next day, extremely painful plus I would have new zits! This is going back! So disappointed.

                          It says to "Only apply the pink and not the clear serum".
                          How do you only apply the pink or get to the pink, if the pink is on the bottom?

                            Both the liquid and the sediment are intended to be applied to the skin in combination on the qtip. We are working on updating the directions online.

                            Drying Lotion is for blemishes that have come to the surface - aka whiteheads.
                            Drying Cream is for small under-the-surface bumps.

                            No, the Drying Lotion will not be affected due to shaking the product. Leave the product on a flat surface and wait for it to settle (you will see the pink sediment on the bottom and the clear liquid on top).
