        Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

        I put the product on after I use the Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser and I leave it on overnight. I helps reduce the size and inflammation of my breakouts and it keeps more from coming. In a matter of 3 days I saw a noticeable difference.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

        I do notice that it helps with my break outs but it isn't a miracle worker. I probably wouldn't purchase this again. Unless of course I hear it works better with the whole acne routine. I have purchased other items from Mario Badescu that were amazing but I'm just not impressed with this item. It does go a long way though so I'll continue to use it until it's gone.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

            I received a free sample of this with an in-store purchase. You only need a small amount to cover your face fully so the small packet actually lasted me a whole week.

            I used this as a preventative measure as I felt like my skin was in a pre-breakout stage. I applied before bedtime and immediately my skin felt soft and smooth. In the morning I noticed my skin had a healthy a glow.

            This product is really great and I will definitely pay for the full-sized bottle.

            Since I've started using this product twice a day, I have noticed that my breakouts are clearing up faster than ever, redness is at a minimum, and I have not noticed any new breakouts. I've never had clear skin so this stuff has been a miracle for me.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

            I'm in my early 20s and my skin began going ape on me breaking out in pimples and leaving some scars on my face, particularly on my cheeks. I came across this product here on the Ulta website, read the overall mixed reviews, and decided to try it. I'm glad I did.

            For starters, this product isn't gonna heal your scars and pimples overnight. I've used this for almost two months now and I do notice that within 2 weeks, the outbreak of pimples on my face has noticeably reduced, and my acne scars and scabs have lightened up. I use this product in the morning and before I sleep after cleansing, toning and putting on Clinique's pimple gel. For reference, I have combination skin leaning towards the oily side with dry spots between my eyebrows and mouth area.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum:

              I am so happy I tried this serum! I was a prescription retin a user, but my insurance stopped paying for it- it clocks in at 125.00/tube without it. I needed a reasonably priced alternative ASAP! I've been off retin-a for several months, so my chin, nose, and cheeks were in need of serious improvement. I am ecstatic over the results- I've used the product for three nights now with SIGNIFICANT improvement. At this rate, my skin will be porcelain in a week. I use the combo skin products for the Mario Badescu line, including the seaweed night cream, which I apply after this serum to cleansed and toned skin.

                Hi! I am an avid Mario Badescu user, but am still not sold on this one ( I need to eliminate a few things in my routine to see if this is causing oily skin or if it's something else). What other MB products does this work best with? Should I put it over or under the buffering lotion? Thanks!

                Does it heal existing acne or it just prevent acne?

                  A:

                  Both! :-) It will speed up the healing process of existing breakouts, and you can apply it onto known problem areas as a preventative measure.
