        Use it right before bed after I clean my face. Then leave it on over night. Once I wake up I wash it off with warm water and you notice how much smaller a pimple was. A really good product.

            I saw this product on Kylie Jenner's snapchat and when I saw the price, I figured I should try it! Helps dry out small pimples if you don't have that many, and even though there is usually still a bump in the morning, it is much smaller and not red anymore.

              I was so intrigued by this product when I saw Kylie Jenner using it on her snapchat story, so I just HAD to pick some up when I saw it at Ulta. I had several stubborn pimples around my chin and after using this product, they went away and I haven't had anymore trouble with them! Every time I hear a friend complaining about acne, I recommend this product

                Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

                I bought this product about two week ago and been applying it ever since. Did not work at all. I'm disappointed because there was no effect. Put on my pimple and woke up with a bigger pimple on my face. Not worth the hype at all. I'm not returning it because I've used it already and I think it's gross to return it. I will keep it for next time and try again. It may not work for me but may work for you.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

                  So after reading a lot about this I finally gave in and bought this. I will say that it does work very well. Used it one night and it all blemishes were gone. So a good product on that stand point.
                  The only Con I have is it is impossible to transport. Let me explain. So there is some pink seidment in the bottom of the bottle. It does say do not sake the bottle. Yes I read this after the fact. Now if the bottle does get shaken it doesn't work as well I noitced. If the soultion does get mixed it does go back to normal but it can take a few days for that. So for someone like me who travels a lot this product is not the best in that standpoint. I put it in my overnight bag and by the time I took it out it was all mixed up. So now I have to wait a few days now for it to separate and work properly. So I DO reccomed this porduct but not if you are traveling a lot. You literally have to carefully take it home and leave it on your counter and not move it so it doesn't get mixed up for it to work properly.

                        It says not to shake. The pink stuff is at the bottom and it gets clearer at the top so do I take the cotton swap all the way to the bottom so I can get just the pink and then apply it?

                        I've just ordered this product, as I've had a break out for a few weeks now and I've tried everything and nothing is clearing them, so thought I'd try this! (My skin is normally very clear) even tho the spots have popped can you put this on the spot? And even if they haven't popped can you still put this on? Some of my spots are under my skin, so was wanting to see if this would help? Thanks

                          A:

                          Resist the urge to pop! Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is intended to be used on blemishes that have already come to the surface (whiteheads) and can help eliminate them by morning.

                          Before bed (after cleansing & toning) dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Apply a dab of this lotion directly on the whitehead. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. DO NOT shake the bottle; if contents get shaken during packing and delivery, place the bottle on a flat surface until the layers separate and the pink sediment rests on the bottom. We do not recommend using this product on spots that have already been popped.
