I would buy again

By Melissa

Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

Worked great in just a few days for a cystic acne breakout I haven't been able to control for a little over a month... Doesn't work overnight, but what does? The consistancy isn't really convenient... That's my only real complaint.

Doesn't work as expected

Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

I love this line of products but I was disappointed with this product. It didn't help my cystic acne resolve any quicker and it dries out the skin around the blemish. Not worth the hype.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        I spread a thin layer all over my face at night, and put extra on my tunnel zits I've recently started frequently developing. This stuff smells strongly of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. It is not overly drying, however. There are lots of B-vitamins in this, and nothing that will clog your pores (like many other acne treatments contain in order to prevent over drying of the skin, which is pointless because if the treatment itself causes breakouts it's useless). If this is too drying for you, try doing it every other night, or just doing it as a spot treatment. Idk what's in this stuff that's making it work so well, but I like it. Not a miracle product, but cheaper and more easily accessible than the prescription meds I just ran out of. Will buy again and definitely try other products from this brand.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

            I have only been using this for a week, but I cannot believe how well it works. I used this in the evening (after washing) and morning (before makeup) on spots, mainly my chin, and it helps tremendously. One application made a significant difference. I have oily skin, so maybe that is why I can handle this twice a day, but it really does help.

              reduces cystic acne SIGNIFICANTLY!!! I still break out, but they immediately come to a head and are so much smaller! I LOVE this product and have tried everything under the sun for cystic acne, and this works the best! the drying face mask works really well to and can shrink a new pimple quickly. Definitely moisturize after using, but wait 5-10 min or the the lotion breaks down the moisturizer and it becomes watery.

                This is the best product I have found to treat pimples. Can be applied anytime as it dries clear. Sometimes one application is all I need; sometimes several.

                    Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

                    If you have problems with cystic acne, this may be the answer. I'm in my 40's and have been having issues with adult onset cystic acne. This really seems to help. It doesn't make it go away in one night, but be a little bit patient. I'll sometimes use it every night if one seems most intolerable (even though the instructions call for every other night). It is a bit runny, but it does absorb and dry quickly so you can apply the rest of your night time skin care products. Along with this, a little trick I learned, is using Neosporin Pain Relief Cream. Whenever you feel like poking, squeezing, touching...put this cream on! It definitely takes down the swelling and inflammation. Together I think it's great :) Good Luck!

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