I use this product to quickly dry acne outbreaks. It really speeds up the process, but can be drying.

Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

After I had my son and started birth control, my acne got worse, it turned into cystic acne and I had tried so many products but nothing worked so I decided to try this before I made an appointment to dermatologist. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and it had taken all my acne bumps away. my skin in finally smooth. I highly recommend this product and definitely will buy again. Thank you Mario Badescu I can finally wear my show my. skin and not feel self concious!!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      I have searched high and low for something that would rid of my break outs without having to result to going back to another brand that worked but really dried out my skin. I use this anytime I get a break out and I don't know if I'm being unrealistic in seeing the reviews that say their pimples were gone "overnight" and believing them or if it just doesn't apply to me. It works, eventually. I have to continually use this for a week or more before I see the pimple disappear. This goes for whiteheads and blackheads. This little bottle was not cheap and I expected this to be a miracle worker and I'm finding that this just isn't worth the price. I'll use it until it's empty but, I will not be repurchasing.

            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.

                    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!
