    Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

    This stuff is what you're needing. I'm in my 30s and my skin is freaking out. My face was turning into a game of wack a mole. If you use this in the order the bottles say you'll wake up with results. I've spot treated in the morning and wash with a vitamin C bar and full face treat at night. Within a week I'm almost ready to go into a maintenance routine.

        You guys..... I never write reviews. Like ever. I think this is the first review I ever did. This stuff works soooooooo well! I do not have acne, and I don't even have blackheads but I have been suffering from these undersurface bumps under my skin for years! Nothing helped except this. I followed the directions and put ALL three products on where they needed to be, I woke up to wash my face and I literally cried because everything I wanted gone, was GONE. I didn't care for the smell at all, I actually didn't mind it at all! Do not hesitate to get this! It's a miracle product and I'm so grateful I got myself to purchase it

          I really like the buffering lotion and the drying lotion. I used the drying lotion at night and the buffering lotion in the morning. The drying cream really did dry my out too much so I used it every few days as needed. But I had huge pimples on my neck and jawline that I have been unable to clear up with many other products for over a year and finally decided to try this and within a few weeks they are all gone. The drying lotion does smell horrible from the sulfur but it was worth it to get great results!

            Happy skin = happy life

            By Ashijj

            from Detroit, Mi

            Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

            I'll start off with the fact that I'm a reviewing junky. I do not purchase anything without reading 2,000 reviews for 2+ months! I pondered this kit for weeks and I am SO thankful I bought it.

            My skin is combo (mostly dry), sensitive, acne prone. Mostly cystic but i do have random clusters of small pimples.

            It's been about two months since I've been using this kit. I use the buffering lotion and drying cream the most. I'm 22, I have hormonal cystic acne mixed with all sorts of nonsense. I have horrible pigmentation also. The buffering lotion shows true overnight results on the biggest cystic bumps... I was amazed. Within 2/3 days the largest bumps on my face were completely gone, with no scarring (yay!). I just use it at night as needed. I use the drying cream on my groups/clusters of little white heads & bumps. I use this as needed also. I get them bad on the sides of my face and under my jaw. This stuff works amazing overnight also! It's a tad drying but it does the job. Yes it does smell, but it's worth it 110%! My boyfriend says I smell like shaving cream whenever I use this at night as far as the drying lotion pink stuff; i use this on my tough pimples that show up one or two at a time. This too, works overnight. I'm truly blown away by these products. My face has never looked so smooth. I'm forever thankful I took a chance and used these products!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit:

              I have been suffering from breakouts as long a I can remember. It calmed down once I started using fragrance free products. Recently, I got into doing a lot of facial masks, and it broke me out severely. So I stop by Ulta and bought this and it cleared me up in less than a week after struggling to get the breakouts and inflammation down for over two weeks. This stuff dried up my spots quickly and without leaving me with sensitivity afterwards like most acne products.

                  A:

                  All products in this kit are for overnight use on different types of breakouts. The Drying Lotion should be used to spot treat whiteheads. We recommend the Buffering Lotion to spot treat cystic acne breakouts. The Drying Cream is best suited for red/inflamed bumps just under the surface of the skin. Please do not layer spot treatments in this kit. Refer to the products individual label for instructions.

                I have read the description on how to use the products. But I'm still confuse on how to use them. Because I know that drying lotion is used when needed. But how about the drying cream and buffering lotion. Can I use both at the same time.

                  The products in this kit are for spot treatments only and should not be layered. The Drying Cream should be applied to red/inflamed breakouts just under the surface of the skin. Our Buffering Lotion is a spot treatment for deep cystic acne breakouts. The Drying Lotion can be used on whiteheads. Products in this kit are not meant as a preventative treatment.
