Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

I think this product might be the best acne treatment I've ever used. I've been struggling with stubborn acne since my preteens & this product has worked wonders for painful whiteheads and inflamed pores. Love how it works overnight. My boyfriend even likes it. Don't spill it on fabric or any porous surfaces though, it's impossible to get off.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

      My 19 year old son has been struggling with acne. We have tried many, many products & services. This product overnight made a huge positive change. It dried out his flare ups & took a lot of the inflammation out of them. By the 4th night of using it there was a huge difference on both his face & back & shoulders. It hurts if you put it on any pimples that you might have popped or picked at so don't do that.

                    Yes, that is what it is for! :-) Before bed, after cleansing, toning and moisturizing apply a dab of lotion directly on the blemish using a cotton swab. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. We do not recommend using it on open acne sores.

                  Should this only be used on one blemish? Or can you spread it around on an entire problem area?

                    A:

                    Drying Lotion is a spot treatment to be applied directly to the blemish. Before bed, after cleansing, toning and moisturizing apply a dab of lotion directly on the whitehead using a cotton swab. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. DO NOT shake the bottle and apply only the pink sediment on the skin.

                    A:

                    No - once you reach your destination, set the Drying Lotion upright on an even surface such as your bathroom counter and allow the pink sediment to separate and settle.

                  What is the clear liquid in the bottle for if I can't put it on my face? Does this mean the drying lotion only has a few uses instead of a whole bottle of uses?

                    A:

                    Mario Badescu recommends that you dip a cotton swab directly into the pink sediment on the bottle of the bottle and pull up slowly. This method will give you the ideal balance of pink sediment and liquid to apply directly to the blemish. Depending on your usage and number of problem areas, this bottle should last at least a month.

                    There is no difference in formula. The plastic bottle works better for travel!
