    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    Love this product! I apply it at night after washing my face with a benzyl peroxide face wash and the next morning the pimple is drastically smaller (due to the alcohol in the top layer) and my skin is softer (due to the calamine in the bottom, pink layer.) I used it consecutively for four nights and it did not dry my skin out at all. It's slightly pricey so I don't know if I would exactly buy this brand again, because you go through it pretty quickly.

          You use this product by dipping a q tip to the bottom and putting the pink pasty substance on your surface acne. Make sure not to shake the bottle as the substances should be seperated. Mine mixed on the car ride home but no worries because it Settled again after I left it sitting upright over night (: make sure to use lotion the mornings after using this product !

                  My husband and I both use this product. Him more than me because i typically sleep on my face and it would just rub off. But he uses this every time he gets a zit and it works really great. I use this whenever I get those awful oil zits and this usually gets the job done. P.S the smell sucks but what do you expect from a product that deals with zits. lol

                    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?

                      A:

                      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.

                      A:

                      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).

                      Our Drying Lotion does not have an expiration date, rather it has a PAO of 24 months. This means that the product is good for a period of 24 months after the point of opening. Otherwise, we suggest you purchase a new bottle whenever either the liquid or pink powder runs out.
