Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

Where has this been? I wish I knew about this product (or something like it) growing up. I'm 27 and get the occasional, BIG pimple that likes to hang out for 5 months (exaggerating). I use this, then the drying lotion, then this on top like the directions state. My only complaint is how to use it. Dab into cotton ball? Drench it on the area? Seems wasteful either way. Anyways, I notice the swelling go down over night. It definitely cuts the life of the cystic pimple.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

    Great product for cystic acne. I use it when I start to break out (twice a week max as described on label. It really helps decrease the inflammation of my acne immediately, however it seems to only work on those big, fat pimples instead of the tiny white heads. The biggest improvement is it decreases the size. It could prevent new from forming, but I can't tell. The best part is that it isn't super drying. I have combo skin type, and this is a huge problem for me since I have such an acne problem. It doesn't even feel like I need a moistuizer after. When I purchased it, I noticed it included Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) which really worried me, but after trying it (and only using twice a week) it doesn't bother me except for the smell. Another huge plus is how my cystic acne doesn't hurt now that I use this, at all! I obviously still get break outs (I have only used it for just under a month), but this helps to decrease the size and I have no pain with them.

                        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

                        I use this twice a day on existing areas. If I feel one coming up under the skin I start using immediately. Started clearing up my cystic "tumors" (just my description of them) very quickly. These areas are generally quite painful, but little to no pain since I started using it.
