    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    This is the first product I have purchased from this brand. I typically don't spend a lot on acne products because even though I do have pretty bad, stubborn acne on my face, chest, and back, I have tried everything with no great luck. Prescription products, OTC brands, Proactiv, etc. I've suffered with it since 8th grade and I'm now 23. My skin also goes through phases where it's not too bad, but recently with the colder weather it's been horrible. I also have sensitive skin that scabs easily. The one side of my face near my hairline was broken out with probably a dozen painful cysts that I felt I needed to do something about or else I was going to go crazy. So I got on the Ulta website and started looking at some of the acne spot treatments and I am SO HAPPY I came across this product. At first look I thought it didn't look like anything special, plus I had never heard of the brand. After reading the reviews, though, I was convinced to purchase it. I have used it a few times now and the cystic acne has shrunk in size dramatically. I still have some old marks/scabs from previous acne I had before I started using the product, and although it stings more when I put it on these I think it is helping to heal them as well. Normally I would wait a little longer before I reviewed a product but this stuff is just so good I know it works and I will definitely continue to use it. If you're on the fence still just buy it trust me!

        Me and my daughter use this at bed time and/or when ever we see any acne popping up. By the morning we see the acne almost disappear, we would recomment this to all teenagers.

        Best acne medication for whiteheads

        By Andrea the beauty lover

        from orange,ca

        About Me Budget Buyer

        Pros

        • Clears acne
        • Effective
        • Works overnight

        Cons

        • Bad Smell

        Best Uses

        • Bedtime

        Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

        I recently purchased this because my acne has been out of control. I've tried body shop tea tree oil, cleanser, etc. & nothing had worked. I got this because I saw a review on youtube and let me tell you I am so impressed! I rarely write reviews on products. It got rid of my bad white head break outs along my mouth and next to my nose. I've been trying for weeks and it got rid of them overnight. I will definitely repurchase and probably gift some to people in need. Also, the only con on this product is the smell. So if you are super sensitive it probably won't be the product for you.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

          This came so highly recommended. It works just okay. It says to put on before bed and wash off in to morning. It rubs off or maybe a move around too much on my sleep. I was told it shrunk the blemishes on your face in half. I don't find that to be true

                    A:

                    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.

                    We do not suggest mixing the product. You would dip a cotton swab into the bottom of the container and pull the sediment up.

                  I accidentally let this bottle jiggle around in the backseat of my car. I have let it sit for about 4 hours and it doesn't look identical to the picture, will it still work?

                    From Mario Badescu: "Our Drying Lotion needs to be separated with the pink sediment on the bottom and the liquid on top. You can go ahead and re-shake it up (in case any sediment stuck to the sides of the bottle) and let it re-settle, and then you will be good to go!"
