Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

I took the test on Mario Badescu's website to see which skincare regimen is for me and it recommended this to me and I got free samples and I liked it so I bought larger versions of it. I have very oily skin as I'm going through puberty and I use this after I cleanse with the botanical facial gel. There is a strong scent to the product but I had no problem with it.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

        This stuff is INCREDIBLE!!! My blemishes on my chest and back were less noticible OVERNIGHT! It smells awful, super strong, but it's an a astringent so that was to be expected. The smell fades quickly after applying it. A previous reviewer said she couldn't stand the smell but she put it in her face, you do NOT want to use this on your face. Not only because of the smell but you can just tell its way too harsh for that area. Super impressed by this product.

              A:

              Yes - the directions specify chest and back since those are the most frequent spots for body breakouts, but you can use it on other places of your body that are breaking out.

          • Q:

            Can I use this on my neck or should I use my face regime on that area (acne facial cleanser and special cucumber lotion)?
            Asked on 7/5/2016 by Beth from Denver, CO

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The skin on your neck may be too delicate for the Special Cleansing Lotion O, so you should start with the Special Cucumber Lotion first. If you are still experiencing breakouts on your neck, you can then step-up to the Special Cleansing Lotion O.
