    This is tricky to use, don't shake the bottle, dab a q tip in the bottle and put on your spots. They will disappear with no drying, itching or discomfort.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      I am one of those people that try all sorts of products for my adult acne, including more natural treatments like essential oil. As much as tea tree oil is a mild combatant of my acne, it isn't neither as effective as this drying lotion. Just dab on the pink sediment, try to get your 8 hr sleep, and plenty of water to drink, and your skin might majorly clear up like mine. Good overall healthy habits are equally as important as this awesome product. I also recommend plenty of vitamin E and rosehip oil after using this product as it is a drying lotion. But I have only been using this drying lotion for 2 weeks and have seen my whole face improve from 50 small pimples to 5 left!

            I love this product. This is the 2nd time that I have bought it. I am in my mid-twenties and I still struggle with breakouts. I place this drying lotion on blemishes before I go to bed at night and in the morning I can already tell a difference!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

              This stuff really works! It is the best treatment to quickly dry up a pimple. Put a dot on the pimple before bed, and it will be gone by morning. The bottle seems small, but I assure you, this small bottle has lasted my two teens a year. Great stuff! Highly recommended.

                        Our Drying Lotion should only be used to spot treat whiteheads (or breakouts with a white pus-filled center). Our Whitening Mask can be used 1-2 times per week to help reduce discoloration from old acne over time.
