Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

Where do I begin! Okay so I am currently 18 years old and have suffered with acne all throughout high school. I have really sensitive and oily skin so it was so hard to find a balance; I tried so many products you couldn't even imagine, I bought months and months worth of proactive, did so much research on tips and why I could be breaking out... I treated my skin and body so bad, I would fall asleep in makeup, never drank water, fast food all the time, but I still wondered why some of my friends could do all this yet have the perfect skin. I always heard of this product from my constant research and even celebrities. I used to be cheap I won't lie and go for the cheapest products, but I realized that wasn't doing me any favor, so I found this brand and became a brand buyer. Best decision I ever made. I finally came around to buying this product and let me tell you, my acne was horrible... little every spot on my face was full of acne, cysts, acne scars, I cried almost every day and even got a piercing so I had an excuse not to swim and take my makeup off. THIS PRODUCT HELPED OVERNIGHT. I am so grateful for this, my bigger pimples shrinking overnight, the smaller ones went away, my cyst acne felt less painful, it even helped the redness go away. I know you need a product that will truly help, and this is a lifesaver for me. I will definitely be swimming soon now !!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I found out about this brand while researching Rodan and Fields products. I honestly did not believe this would work. At almost age 50, I was still getting cystic acne (hormones, I guess) and I was so frustrated. I have already been the dermatologist route with the Accutane, but those daggone crater zits still appeared.
    This is not an immediate fix, it will take a day or two to work, but this works better than anything I've ever tried before to dry up acne. Better than Benzoyl peroxide or salycylic acid.

      I bought this bc Kylie Jenner uses it and it works really well. The only problem I had with it was I knocked over the bottle like three times and now since almost all the liquid is out of the bottle it's not very effective anymore

                    Our Drying Lotion should be used as your very last step in your routine. This product should be used after cleansing, toning and moisturizing as a spot treatment for whiteheads.

                    No - we do not recommend layering these 2 products. They are both spot treatments but are designed to target different types of blemishes.
                    The Drying Lotion should be used on whiteheads only and the Buffering Lotion is specially formulated to help shrink large, under-the-surface bumps.
