      Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

      I have been looking for acne products that work and this is one of the ones I have found in Mario Badescu. It doesn't make the cysts disappear overnight but it does stop the growth and eases the pain. This allows it to heal quicker. I was only using it every other night but now I put it on in the morning and night. I have been using this product more frequently over the past couple of weeks and it has really help a lot. Love it.

      Best product for cystic acne

      By Amy

      from Salt Lake, UT

      Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

      I love this product! There are not many things specifically designed for cystic acne, but there should be! I don't get any acne accept for cystic hormonal breakouts on my neck. I don't use acne products on the rest of my face so this is the only spot I feel like I need something. Buffering lotion is so great for this because I can use it as a spot treatment and it doesn't dry me out! I love this!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

      I was so excited to use this product after reading all the positive reviews but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I bought it to put on a zit I've had for months now that will not go away. I've been trying to avoid going to see a dermatologist b/c the rest of my face is clear, it's just this one spot. I'm pretty sure its cystic acne. Anyway, I used it as soon as I got it in the mail but instead of drying it out, it made it swell up to twice the size. So instead of making it look better it made it look 10 times worse. The following day the swelling went down and it did dry it out a little bit but I'm scared to use it again b/c it's just not worth all the swelling it caused. I was surprised b/c I use the drying lotion and love it. It gets rid of most zits over night. I ended up buying the drying mask and using it as a spot treatment for my "monster" zit and that worked much better than this. It's still there but it looks like it's healing. I'll be returning this stuff though b/c sadly it didn't work for me.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

      I bought this product because I had a big event coming up and I felt a pimple coming in underneath my skin. The lady recommended it to me and I thought I'd take a chance. I put it on before I went to work and by the end of the day, I felt a noticeable decrease in size. I couldn't believe how well it worked. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle.

        • A Bit Of An Alcohol Smell

        Best Uses

        • After Shower/Bath
        • Bedtime

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        I love this product because it gets right into my cystic acne that I've had so much trouble with. It's as if it breaks it up under my skin. When I feel a bump coming on, I put on the buffering lotion and it cleans it right up, or brings it to the surface in a small whitehead vs a large cyst. I also put it on my chin nightly as it is acne prone. The smell can be a bit much, but i get used to it quickly, or once the alcohol evaporates it goes away..and it doesn't dry my skin like other acne products do!

        It is runny and can be difficult to apply, smells like rubbing alcohol, but definitely helps clear acne

            Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

            I have been suffering from some of the worst cystic acne I have ever had. I will spare you the details - but it is horrible, painful and takes forever to (sort of) disappear. I've been using this for a few days on the same area and it has already came to a head and doesn't seem to be getting bigger. That usually takes weeks (if ever). It's expensive but if you feel like nothing is working, just give it a shot.

            Good for under makeup after a night of harsh prescription meds. Wish this great company would come out with a strong benzoyl peroxide creme.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

                I have suffered with cystic acne and lesser forms as well for 35 years. Even in my 50's I still get it. I have been wanting to try this for some time so, when I finally made the long drive to my nearest Ulta and I saw this, I grabbed it. I started using it on a new blemish as well as an old one that just wouldn't go away. Within 2 days I saw a huge improvement. I did use it 2x a day for a couple of days and did not have any drying. I have very dry skin so the fact I didn't have any drying was a huge bonus. I highly recommend this product, and all of Mario Badescu products.
