  • Soothing
  • Works Effectively

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Adult Acne
    • Moderate Acne

    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    This product is like a mini miracle worker. It helps with my mini adult breakouts, and my 14yr/o dtrs moderate breakouts. It does dry the area-and there may be a little flaking. But it certainly dries the reddened cysts like is supposed to.

    My 14 year old son uses this daily and it works great. He will have major break outs if he forgets to use it for a couple of days.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I really like this product. It works best if you can get it on acne that hasn't yet surfaced. If I wait too long to put it on a spot, it may not work in just 1 use, but it still reduces the amount of time a zit lives on my face. I'd definitely recommend it.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      Great for getting rid of a pimple fast because it dries it out. Probably wouldn't use it every night because it might dry out your skin. Use over night and read the directions before use. Do NOT shake bottle... put q-tip in then apply to problem area.

              This is the BEST for spot treatment. I have been struggling lately with random hormonal spots and this is the only thing that gets rid of them.
              Use a Q tip- make sure you get down to the pink area and then put on spots before bed the next day they will be GONE or almost gone!!

              THIS REALLY WORKS

                  If we use up the pink lotion, what do we do with the oil/liquid sitting on top?

                    A:

                    Depending on how one dips the swab into the sediment for each application, one may run out of liquid before they run out of pink sediment and vice versa. We advise that you dip the swab straight down all the way to the bottom and slowly pull it straight up. Once either the liquid or pink sediment is all used up, it is time to purchase a new one!

                    The Drying Lotion is not formulated for blackheads. You can use Mario Badescu Silver Powder (Item #: 2209809) twice per week as a spot treatment to reduce blackheads and pore congestion.
