            I use this product whenever I get a break out (usually during my period) and it minimizes my breakouts over night! The only thing that bugs me with this product is that it stings a little when I first put it on my acne.

              I use it daily normally, the smell is very strong because it contains a lot of alcohol but it also has calamine in it helping to get the blemishes dried up and gone

              Service and delivery comments:

              Very helpful and I asked and there was a whole section dedicated to the Mario Madescu products. The sales rep told me all about it and I had already heard good reviews from friends! I love it!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

              I have fairly good skin but every week or two I will get one painful pimple. I decided to try this and put some on and the pain and redness immediately stopped. The next day however, it was back. So I've discovered that this is a product that you have to keep using every night until the pimple is gone but it does work. It wasn't a one night spot treatment (at least in my case). It is drying but I think that's what it's supposed to do so that's not necessarily a con. I would definitely recommend. Not sure if this is good for multiple breakouts but definitely works for a few pimples if you have them.

                Wow!! I has read the reviews and scoffed at the claims that this made a difference overnight. I tried it last night on a stubborn set of small blemishes on my forehead and they are practically gone this morning. I was very impressed!! Don't shake the bottle before use, because it separates it is tempting to do so.

                    Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a spot treatment to help dry out a blemish. It should be used alone as a spot treatment directly applied to the affected area.
