      I bought this just three days ago and I'm already seeing results with my acne! So glad I bought this and would highly reccommend to anyone with problem pimples. Also the people who complain about it drying out your face.... of course it dries out your face!!! That's the only way an acne medication can get rid of pimples, they all do! Just moisturize and you will be fine

      I've tried multiple acne treatments, face washes, etc... and then just gave up for awhile and settled for what I had. My acne recently got really bad, and I just decided to finally give in again and I bought this kit and it's AMAZING! Seriously, it even helps my hormonal acne.

        I have had problem combination skin since puberty. I got this product because I read the buffing lotion helps with cystic acne. I had had 2 drops facial cysts about 1.5 inch in diameter that didnt yo away np matter what home remedy I tried. I finally had to go to the dermatologist to get steroid injections, 3 separate times for each. Since I have started these products my breakouts clear up almost instantly and the pesky underskin pimples never live to see the light of day. I wish would have known to try this before spending hundreds of $ at the dermatologist!!

          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!

                    Our Acne Repair Kit contains our best selling spot treatments. Products in this kit do not target dark spots. We suggest our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week to reduce discoloration from sun spots or acne scars. https://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753

                    While neither kit targets discoloration from acne scars, our Acne Repair Kit is a great product to spot treat breakouts and can be used with your current regimen. Our Acne Starter Regimen Kit contains a full regimen of trial sized products to help control and reduce breakouts. This kit is a great option for those with daily or weekly breakouts and combination, oily skin.

                    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.

                    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.
