This product doesn't seem to help at all. It actually seems to bring more cysts out around the area being treated.

    Strong smell but works great. Only need a tiny amount and goes a long way. It got rid of those deep red bumps better than anything else I tried.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

    I have tried all the creams, lotions, acne kits, pills, dermatologist, plastic surgeon, this is the best product by far I have used to clear up my acne. I am 47 and have had it since 9th grade, things start to work, then stop, gets worse, then heals, then breakout again, they have always been deep, and I was always told it was cystic acne, so I know this problem well, spent a fortune, this is cheaper than most of them and well worth it, trust me!!!!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        I am 34 years old and, up until 8 months ago, always had good skin. Then out of nowhere I started breaking out - a lot. And the acne would not go away no matter what I tried. Long story short, it developed into very painful and ugly cystic acne. I was at my wits end and with my brothers wedding 3 weeks away, went into Ulta near tears looking for something to help, at least to take the pain away. I am so grateful the lady who helped me recommended this- within a week my acne had cleared up dramatically. I have been using it for 4 weeks now and while my skin is not completely clear, my acne is now diminished into mere pimples that you can barely see without makeup on. I should note that I bought the Mario b acne kit and used it in conjunction with the buffering lotion. Love it!! I would highly recommend this line!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        This is the most expensive face product that I've ever bought, but the woman I spoke with in the store swore by it. She was right! I have never been able to find anything that got rid of my cystic acne, but this does the job.

        Perfect for cystic pimples

          Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

          I bought this because I heard it helped dry up cystic pimples well. If anyone else has to deal with hormonal breakouts, there is basically nothing that makes it go away. I am shocked at how well this product works! Using it for one night made the cyst go away by 50%. I tried it last night with a band-aid covering it so it wouldnt rub off and it was completely flat with just a little pink spot!! I dont know how it works, im just sorry I didnt use it years ago.

          Awesome Producct for Cystic Acne

          By Sarah

          from Detroit, Mi

          About Me Brand Buyer

          Pros

          • Cures Acne

          Cons

          • Drying

          Best Uses

            Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

            I have tried literally everything to treat recurring cystic acne on my chin. No, this product does not prevent cystic acne from forming on my chin. However, it does promote faster healing of cystic acne. Normally, my cystic acne takes around 2 weeks to heal. With this buffering lotion, it days around 2-3 days. The only downside is that it is very drying. The instructions say to only use this every other day; I suggest to follow these instructions.

                This product is all sizzle, no steak. It is just rubbing alcohol with a little zinc oxide added. It does nothing. Save TONS of money and just buy rubbing alcohol.

                  I have spent a lot of money on different spot treatments. I used this last night and woke up and my breakout areas were basicly cleared up after one use. I am going back to ulta today to buy some more stuff from this line!
