    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I bought this bc Kylie Jenner posted in on her snapchat saying she loves this product. However, this product does not work. I rarely have acne and when I do I have tried to apply this and I honestly see no result. If I have a bump starting to form I try this at night I wake up and it is still there. I have used this three nights in a row trying to get this pimple to dry out and I am seeing no results. I do not believe that people actually have results from this because I see no changes what so ever.

      Bought the sample. I have dry skin with minimal pimples but it worked great when I had a hormone breakout. Husband tried it for his blackheads and it worked for that as well!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

        I bought this product on the suggestion of one of the store associates and I could not be more amazed. I have been struggling with acne for the past 10 years and NOTHING has ever worked like this. I was skeptical of the price and small bottle but it is worth every single penny. Not only does this get rid of active acne in two days or less, but it also helps stop new blemishes from forming! I just dab it on when I feel one coming and then go to bed! I'm in love.

          I have a medical aestitician friend and i could get some stuff from her which is professional grade acid for acne but i have to say for something you can buy over the counter it is almost as effective. I love it and wont be without it.

            This stuff is overnight magic. And a little goes a long way. I have been searching for something like this for years!

            The moment I feel a pimple brewing, I use this and it is gone before it even had a chance.

              I use this product every so often whenever a blemish appears and it disappears overnight! To apply, all you do is stick a Qtip into the pink solution (don't shake up) and dab it on the pimple. Let it stay overnight and wash it off in the morning. It's so easy and so effective !! I love this stuff !!!!

                  Literally the best thing since sliced bread. I've had HORRIBLE cystic acne since I got off birth control and nothing helped. Found this on a whim and BAM pimples gone within 2 days that used to take 2 weeks to kind of go away. LOVE

                    if your already using an acne cleanser, is it ok to use this as well? I know some products say to use one acne treatment at a time.

                      Yes - Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion is a spot treatment only. You can incorporate it into your skin care routine by only applying to whiteheads that may pop up.

                      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.

                      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.
