    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I apply before bed and generally the blemish is reduced or gone the next morning. The lotion turns powdery and any left on your face in the morning just brushes off. I am a senior and my skin is normal - this has not caused any irritation and eliminates the blemishes I get periodically.

      This is the best thing in makeup. Any tiny bit of redness that tries to escape from my skin is immediately hit with this pink martini and overnight it's gone or at least nearly. ...of course it dries out skin, it sucks the life out of blemishes! I will NEVER be without it!

        I loved this for my cystic acne . Once a month; during my lovely lady time, my chin freaks out and leaves me with a large painful bump. This product minanized the redness in 2 days and the bump was gone with in the week. Extra bonus I have no scarring !

              I put this lotion on when I noticed two blemishes on my face. Unfortunately now instead of minimizing them, the lotion made my acne worse. Causing it to be cystic and now my face is swollen and I just feel 10 times more insecure than I did to begin with. I do not recommend at all!!!

                  A:

                  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.

                  The Drying Lotion is an effective spot treatment for whiteheads. This product should not be used on acne scars. To help reduce the appearance of discoloration from acne scars our Whitening Mask can be used. http://www.ulta.com/whitening-mask?productId=xlsImpprod6200747
