Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

I like to use the product after I moisturize. SPOT TREAT ONLY. I do not recommend getting over zealous with the product because it is meant to dry/minimize your blemish. Avoid your smile lines and eye area too. This product saves my face when I have hormonal acne as well!

        I've been using this product every night only because I had a few huge pimples. When you use this, it's not an over night thing. It will definitely make the pimple smaller by the next day and redness will minimize as well.

            I was very skeptical about using this product because I see all these post it and reviews of celebrities and I thought you know where it's probably just a gimmick but I've been using this every night and I am 100% impressed. I personally wouldn't say it heals it overnight but it definitely definitely reduces the size of the pimple it definitely gets rid of the Whitehead and it decreases the time that the acne is there. It's so easy it's so convenient you literally just stick in a Q-tip in the bottle dab it on the areas that are effective go to bed and wake up the next morning and rinse off your face and boom you're ready for the day.

            This is a must have if you want to get to of acne. Make sure you don't shake the bottle, get a q-tip and dip it into the solution and make sure you dab it onto the skin and leave it overnight. I've bought this so many times I have sensitive-combination skin so this does dry out the skin if you use it every night.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

              I use the product at night, after thoroughly washing my face. If I see signs of acne such as redness, irritation bumps, or if my acne is already flaring up and some zits are starting to become painful, I use the drying lotion immediately to impede the pimple from fully developing or at all. In cases where I am too late and a cystic pimple, whiteheads, or blackheads are already there, I then will extract after washing my face, sanitize wound, and although contraindicated, I will put in on my open wound and pretty much all over my face, including double chin, to ensure that all acne prone areas of my face are being targeted. The next day, my face is much better and even my husband will compliment my clearer skin. Honestly, hands down, probably the best acne spot treatment I've purchased!! #notsponsored.

                    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.

                    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).
