    Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

    I am in my 50's and still get breakouts due to my oily skin. This is the only product that will dry up the breakouts (often overnight) without damaging my skin. I've been using this product for almost 10 years and there is nothing better.

    Does not work

    Does nothing for cystic acne like it claims. I got better results with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. Waste of money

      Shake it up well and use it with a cotton ball because it comes out of the tip fast and you will waste a lot of the product if you're not careful.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        This is one of my favorite products. It works effectively but at the same time doesn't dry out my skin around a pimple or a cyst. Usually I use it at the bedtime, and I already can see a difference the next morning. It reduces redness as well. I would recommend this product to people with sensitive, combination or dry skin.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

          Although I don't get many white/blackheads, I do get a lot of small cystic zits on the sides of my cheeks that seem to never go away. I use this product 5-7 times a week on my problem areas and the bumps are less noticeable overnight! On smaller "bumps," this stuff makes them disappear overnight. When I do get huge cysts, I don't find this to be as effective on me, but that might just be me being impatient. I don't get huge cysts often, so this isn't really a problem for me though. Also, THIS PRODUCT LAST FOREVER. I have had the same tiny bottle for probably almost a year now, at least eight months. I can't believe how long this stuff lasts!! Overall great product and is definitely worth the price.

          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.
