      Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

      I heard so many good things about this product, so I wanted to try it for myself. I was soooo disappointed when it didn't work! I have very sensitive skin, and it didn't have an effect on that, but it didn't really clear my pimples. When I get pimples, it really isn't easy for me to get rid of them, so if your skin is like that, I don't recommend it.

          After seeing this product on Kylie Jenner's snapchat, I thought I'd give it a go. It has completely changed my skin. Although I still have some scarring and the occasional hormonal acne spot, my skin is extremely clear now. I recommend this to everyone I meet.

                    Yes it does minimize pores however it does so by drying them out. This formula is made for people who have oily skin. I have normal to oily which is why it somewhat worked for me. Downside is it does stain your bed sheets/clothing so make sure it dries completely before going to bed. Only other complaint is once it dries it turns into a 'powder'...it gets everywhere. I don't think there really is as big of a 'hype' over it as there should be. In all honesty it does work...to a point. Its for moderate acne its not for someone who really suffers from acne like myself.

                      Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

                      This is an absolute necessity in my skincare products now. I do not even remember how went without this product. It is amazing. When I get a whitehead, I just put it on before I go to sleep and in the morning it is significantly better. It heals so much faster and works so well. Don't expect to go from a full out whitehead to absolutely nothing over night but if you want them to heal WAY faster, this is the perfect product for that.

                      I can't even travel without this product now. I will be repurchasing as soon as I am even a little low on product. Holy grail.

                          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 surface blemishes; do not rub in. Let dry and rinse off in the morning. Do NOT use on broken skin.
                          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).
