            I highly recommend this product to anyone who has a sudden breakout. Just dab it on to your zit at night after you cleanse and moisturize and leave it overnight. Pimple won't go away the next day but it slowlu dries up and gone after 2-3 days.

            Whenever you just have a pimple that you just need to dry out really quick and have the inflammation go down, this does the job. I keep it in while I sleep and there isn't too much drying of skin but my skin isn't dry to begin with. Love love love this product!!!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

              I have suffered from acne for a long time and after spending hundreds of dollars at a kiehl's counter after they guaranteed results, my skin only got worse. I decided to go for a more simple approach. This treatment kills acne on the spot. It is a miracle worker. It will take a little time before you see all of the magic this can do for your skin. This product will not prevent acne from reoccurring, you will have to find a routine that works for you, but if you are looking for a new transformative skincare routine this is a good start because it will heavily reduce the blemishes you already have and then you can go from there.

                  We have not received any feedback that indicates it leaves stains. We do suggest to wait for the product to dry on your skin before getting into bed. It's quick drying so it won't take long!

                  Yes you can still use it! Simply set the bottle on a flat surface and allow the product to naturally settle before using.

              • Q:

                Are you supposed to let the clear liquid and pink sediment separate or should it be shaken to mix well before applying?

                  A:

                  DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE. Before bed (after cleansing and toning), dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Dab directly on the whitehead; do not rub in. Let dry and rinse off in the morning. Do NOT use on broken skin.

                  Do not apply to eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

                  A:

                  This should be used nightly on blemishes that have come to the surface. You should only use this as a spot treatment while the problem exists.

              • Q:

                Once the pink sediment is "used up", does the remaining liquid have any use? I mean, I'm sure it isn't as effective as the pink part, but can it be used rather than wasted or is it literally useless?

                  A:

                  The Drying Lotion performs at its best when both the pink sediment and clear liquid are used together. When either one of these runs out - its time to buy a new bottle.
