      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      I had such high hopes for this after reading all of the reviews! I have been using this product for 2 months hoping my opinion changed, but it hasn't. This really doesn't decrease the size of my pimples at all and I didn't notice any difference after using this product. So sad!

        Dries out skin if you don't moisturize but other than that I loved it! After two applications my pimple was gone. The smell is very strong but that's because it works wonders.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

        This product has actually changed my skin and life. I've had chronic blackheads on my nose for over 10 years. Some so severe they have left a hole large enough for people to ask if I've had my nose pierced. After 3 nights of treatment on my nose, my blackheads have nearly disappeared. I'm blown away. The large hole is the size of a normal pore.

        I've tried everything, pore strips, masks, monthly facials and chemical peels, yet in 3 nights they are nearly gone. I highly recommend this product for any blemish you see appearing. I wake up the next morning with it gone. This also worked for my fiance and some of his blemishes.

        The only tricky thing about the product is it's important to use the product exactly per the instructions. You are not to shake the bottle. Let the pink settle to the bottom and dip a q-tip in straight and pull out.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

        I'd been having major hormonal breakouts along my jawline/chin for about 2wks. I used this spot treatment overnight for 2 days. After the first night my pimples shrunk to half their previous size, & were less visibly irritated. By the morning following my second application, they were gone completely! I've even convinced my boyfriend to use this stuff for his occasional pimple.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

          I've been using this product over bumps I get from ingrown hairs on my jawline. So far it's working to minimize those bumps. This product is by no means an overnight cure but it's really helped in the reduction and frequency of the bumps I get.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

            A lot of people told me this was an instant fix. I usually use Retinol and Glycolic to prevent acne but am going on a cruise, so I had to stop. It works really well, but not as quickly as I was led to believe. It still takes 2-3 nights of using it for large Acne to go away.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

              I heard so much hype on this product from a few websites and then employees in the store. However, everyone's skin is different. I am not a fan of Mario Badescu, this is the second product I tried out- did nothing.
              This might work for someone young in teens or twenties that wakes up with a small pimple. However not for someone with adult acne who is 34. If anything this seemed to irritate my skin. I would not recommend to an adult who has sensitive skin.
