Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

needed a product that works quick. i use this at the first feeling that a pimple is coming and it will draw it out and eliminate it in 24-48 hrs. yes it will dry your skin (hello thats what your buying it for!!)so only apply it to the pimple with a fingertip or q tip.i use it directly after showering and before my other skin products.

Hormonal Acne

    Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

    I was desperate at this point. I learned that the hard, painful & insightful bumps on my chin were caused by my hormones. I am very thankful that I heard about this stuff. The first night I used it I could not believe my eyes the next morning! I was ashamed that I waited so long to do something about my problem. Thank goodness!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        This is my very first time writing a review. I really wanted to comment on this product because ive recently been breaking out due to stress. Cystic acne was crazy! i would break out with 4 on my chin! it would get worse around my period. The day i bought this i had 4 cystic painful acne already and 2 coming in( all on my chin). I used this the same night. Bought a couple of other things. I washed my face and exfoilated than i put the buffering lotion on and after it dried the ulta rep told me to try to put a mask that i bought (Pur mud mask)and let it sit for 10 mins. The whollleeeeeee 10 mins i felt the spots throbbing which was crazy! I than removed it and applied the buffering lotion again, than moisterized!! It worked!! the painful acne trying to come up were gone within 2 days tops! the ones ive already had took longer maybe a week and a half. Key is to treat the acne before its coming to surface. It would be harder to remove them once they are on your face :(. I am currently dealing with the scars. I must say is doesnt work for mild acne, but this is my experience. might be different for other people.I am going to try the viatmin C serum for the scars. Hopefully it works! Wish me luck and good luck to everybody else.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        This was reccomended to me by an Ulta sales associate who thought my closed comedones were cysti acne. You know what? I don't even care! This stuff is great for zits, even though it's specifically for cystic acne. I use it on all my breakouts and this stuff gets rid of them in 24 to 48 hours. I will always always rebuy!!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        I bought this after I started getting cystic acne again related to hormones. Over night it helped bring down the size of my break out and seemed to pull a lot of the infection/gunk toward the surface. Over use does produce drying so use as directed but I found when used properly it was not too harsh for my sensitive skin. While I am still struggling to get my acne under control, having this in the rotation really helps.

          I've never written a review before, but had to for this product. I am 23 years old and had a deep-rooted zit that kept reoccurring in the same spot for 5 months. I used Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil, and various over-the-counter pimple-clearing creams/gels. This was recommended to me and it worked SO well. I noticed a huge difference just after one use. I am so happy and I highly recommend this product.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

              I purchased this treatment when I was struck with a nasty cystic blemish recently. While nothing can make a cystic blemish a pleasant experience, I did find that this product kept the spot soothed and dry and reduced the healing time somewhat. Which is about the best you can hope for with a deep, painful blemish!

              As an added benefit, the liquid is milky white and translucent, which helps to reduce the visible redness of the spot when applied.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

                  Product is somewhat affordable, however, it is just not effective at all for moderate acne. It is being used every other night and I will not use it every night due to drying out of the skin. I will not purchase again.

                      A:

                      The Buffering Lotion should be applied as a spot treatment directly to affected areas after applying serum and moisturizer.
