Must-Have!!

Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

Best overnight acne spot treatment! As a teen I struggle with acne but this has truly cleared me out! I just dab with a cotton swab on my problem areas and sleep that's it! This product has made me more confident in my appearance, who doesn't love it when someone complaints your skin! The only reason I give the product 4 stars is because it may dry your skin out if you over use it.

Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

I have tried nearly every product you can purchase or be prescribed and nothing has helped to get rid of my cystic acne. I used this for two nights in a row, woke up this morning to no acne on my face. I will keep this in stock and recommend it to all of my family and friends!

        I use the product at night time before bed. I take a q tip and follow what the instructions on the bottle prefers. The smell is really strong almost like acetone. I dot the product all over my problem spots and by the next morning they have shrunk tremendously!!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

          After 2yrs of battling sudden onset adult acne, I finally found something that works to spot treat breakouts. Because it is a spot treatment you don't get some of the side effects of some other breakout treatments. The smell is not the most pleasant but seriously who cares if it works. I've used all different kinds of treatment from proactive like products like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide (which I'm turned out allergic to) to prescription antibiotics to the drastic accutane. I definitely like the glass bottle better as far as packaging goes otherwise, I thoroughly recommend this product!

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion should not be applied to broken skin. Rather, it should be dotted directly onto the whitehead and allowed to sit on the blemish overnight. Do not pop, poke, or squeeze the blemish and there will be no scarring.
