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.

Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

I would recommend this product, but be careful! I would only use it on full on red pimples where you can actually see a white tip. It works well on those. I would stay away from a pimple that isn't bad or doesn't hurt and have a white tip. I found that it sometimes made them worse and more red and visible.

              • Q:

                Can I use this product on the same night that I'm planning to use a mask? Or would it be better to use them on different nights?

                  A:

                  Once you reach your destination, set the Drying Lotion upright on an even surface, such as your bathroom counter, and allow the pink sediment to separate and settle.

                  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.

                  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.
