Doesn't work for me

      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      I was recommended this product by an Ulta sales associate, said it's the best spot treatment. I have given this product about 4 weeks use, only applying to acne that suddenly pops-up. I have seen no changes. I apply at night time and when I wake the size of the pimple is still the same. I have very stubborn adult hormonal acne, unfortunately I've been living with this for years now! I'm 30 and would never thought I would still be battling acne. I was hoping this was going to be my "cure" but unfortunately this isn't my lucky item. The smell is extremely strong, I almost feel like I'm applying pure rubbing alcohol to my face. It also has a slight burning feeling when applied. I wouldn't say this is necessarily an easy product to use, for example, if you don't have a Q-tip to dip all the way to the bottom of the bottle to get the pink product, then you are basically screwed.

            all you need is one dip for multiple pimples, and it works great overnight.

                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!

                  I don't write reviews, ever, but I simply had to with this stuff. It dries pimples up fast, and the price isn't too bad either!

                  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.

                  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.
