Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

I loved this product. I have normal to oily skin and just recently I started breaking out. A skin specialist recommended this product at ulta, so naturally I had to try it. It's very effective in drying blemishes and neutralizing redness/inflammation. Warning, use as needed and not excessively because I did get some dry patches. Make sure to moisturize after using it!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    Super easy to use product. Just dip a Qtip so the tip reaches the pink sediment, apply to pimples and let sit overnight. My breakouts always look better in the AM after using this product. As the name suggests, it does make skin very dry where applied, so I recommend using a moisturizer in the morning after removing the product.

    Loving it so far

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I'm always skeptical of products I see many youtubers talk about, but after some really bad hormonal breakouts I decided to bite the bullet and dish out the money for this. I'm definitely seeing it help. I went a little crazy hitting every pimple on my face, and some of the ones I could feel starting to form were gone the next morning. As long as I keep getting results, I'll definitely repurchase.

        This product is amazing! If you feel a pimple coming up, you just dab some on and wash it off in the morning. After washing it off, you'll find that the pimple is gone! I never tried anything as fast and effective as this! I'm in love!

        Shrunk my pimples!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

        The drying lotion helped my pimples shrink to half their size and made them go away faster. They usually take like a week to heal but the redness was reduced by the next day. Be careful using it every night because it does cause dryness. I'd suggest using it one night and then leaVing blemishes alone and only adopting your moisturizer the next night. All in all, it's good.

            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:

            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.

        • Q:

          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?
          Asked on 8/8/2015 by Makeme Up from Toledo, OH

          1 answer

          • Staff Expert

            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!
