        I had high hopes for this product. The first time I tried it it flattened out a few pimples. But it did not work on any of the cystic breakouts I had. It may have actually made them worse. It does absorb quickly into the skin

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        The Ulta saleswoman recommended this product because I often break out on my chin with deep, painful, cystic acne. This lotion smells a lot like alcohol but also has a slight creamy texture. After using it a few weeks, I do think it has reduced the cysts that I get. If I do begin getting one, it tends to not develop into the large cysts I used to get. I bought my daughter a bottle, as well, and she likes it, too.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

        Although this product can dry out your skin a little, especially if used with another acne product, it works great at quickly reducing the size of cystic acne. Works great in conjunction with the overnight drying cream.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion:

          A few days ago when I felt a cyst come on and it just kept growing and growing. No amount of makeup in the morning could cover this thing since it was so enlarged and shading it perfectly to appear flat would've taken a professional artist, basically.

          After I realized I wouldn't be able to get an injection to get rid of this I got desperate and was willing to buy whatever could MAYBE even treat cysts. Since this was available locally I immediately rushed to Ulta and took it home to test.

          I'm happy to write that IT WORKS! Perhaps it was a bit of a placebo effect, but I put this on my cyst after work and swore within an hour that my cyst wasn't as inflamed as it previously had been. In the morning it had a visible reduction in size and now ~24 hours later it's almost flat after 2 applications (1 normal application at night, 1 quick application this morning which I washed off right before I covered it with makeup and went to work). Definitely worth a shot if you suffer from cystic breakouts! I hope I continue to have good luck with this product.

              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.
