    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I usually get pimples that are so sensitive. Even accidentally touching it would hurt. It would throb and turn all red. When i noticed one forming i get a cotton swab and just dip it in and apply it to the pimple, i use it during the night. When i wake up it has minimized so much. It isnt 100% gone but it did shrink it to the point it does not hurt anymore. I absolutely love it

      This has been my holy grail product and has really changed my skin. It clears breakouts so fast and leaves my skin feeling good. I have purchased this 3 times now and I will continue to buy this product every time I'm getting low. I think it's affordable and it's so effective.

            I was skeptical to try this, because I have bad acne and I've tried literally everything! But, I bought it and I have been using it for 4 days now and I LOVE IT!!! It really works and has dried up a lot of my acne! It does NOT remove or minimize acne scars, but it dries out acne overnight! I am so much more confident now that I have this drying lotion!

              This is the same thing as Bye Bye Blemish sulfur drying lotion for $8!! Don't waste your money buying the brand name. Kate Sommerville's is priced at $24- it's outrageous.

                  I had this big pimple on my forehead that turn into two pimples just next to each other, it reduced both of them in 3 days, I was amazed by this product. Now I been using it on smaller black heads and and I'm not seeing any change. The 1st time, it stayed on all night and now it doesn't it transfers into my blanket. I do let it dry, but I think I am washing my face the second time at night too early. I have oily skin so maybe if I do it a couple of minutes before I go to sleep it should make a difference.

                      A:

                      Resist the urge to pop! Our Drying Lotion should not be applied on broken skin - aka pimples that have popped. Rather, before bed (after cleansing and toning) dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Apply a dab of this lotion directly on the whitehead. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning.

                      Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion should not be applied to broken skin. Rather, it should be dotted directly onto the whitehead and allowed to sit on the blemish overnight. Do not pop, poke, or squeeze the blemish and there will be no scarring.
