    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    As soon as I see an inflammation coming on, I immediately put this product on in the night and the next day, the pain is gone. The inflammation may go away the next day or it may take another night dosage for it to completely disappear. Great product!

      This was recommended to me by a friend, whose teen-age son uses it. I purchased it for my two teen-age sons to use for spot treatment of acne. They both continue to use it, so they must consider it to be effective. I believe it really helps their acne!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

      Was skeptical about it but my estetician friend recommended it and I do agree with her after use. They're more effective on the cystic acne i think, as it dries out skin and may cause dry acnes. Also good on inflammatory acne, as it soothes aching after a night's application. Good to hv if you're breaking out time to time.

            I have been having pimples on my face since I was a teenager. I have been trying different products and this is my favorite. Comparing with other brand name products, this one is not pricy but it does its work. Normally I apply the product at night on the pimples and they start to disappear next morning.

                  • Q:

                    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.

                      The Drying Lotion is a treatment for whiteheads. 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.
