It really isn't worth it with that price point

By Vy

from Houston

Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

I've bought this once several months ago but ended up returning. Then I thought to myself that maybe I should give it another chance bc there might of been a chance that I had a defect. I tried it out but nothing happened (same result with the previous purchase). I have acne prone skin and this just didn't work for me. It even made one of my pimples larger! Although it dries to a hard paste, it would rub off on my pillow. I really wanted to like this product but I guess I'll be returning it soon.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

    I only get occasional pimples, and it works like a charm on mild acne. My boyfriend has it worse than I do, and when he's worried about an especially prominent one I just make him use this overnight! It actually works, and also keeps either of us from *popping* the pimples.

          great for when you have a blackhead come up and need it to go away quick. i don't recommend it for daily use as it can dry out your skin but it's good for weekly treatments!

              Seriously this stuff works on zits overnight! It dries them out so don't use too much or too frequently, or on really sensitive areas that don't need it. Just a spot treatment!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

              i love this product, it can be drying but that is the point, it is a spot treatment. This product is highly effective and is amazing for acne, in my opinion it gets rid of any kind of acne that i apply it on. I have moderate acne, but when i break out and i apply this before bed, when i wake up you can tell that my pimple either got smaller, or went away completely. I highly recommend this, i will be repurchasing this!!

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Glass Bottle Drying Lotion:

                  This stuff is easy to apply and use but was not effective at shrinking my pimples. The calamine would help take away some redness but I found the product to be SUPER messy and most of the time just ineffective. It dries down quickly but is super flakey and doesn't stay on the skin well because of how flakey it is.

                        What happens if you run out of the clear liquid in the bottle and only have the pink sediment

                          A:

                          The Drying Lotion performs at its best when both the pink sediment and clear liquid are used together. When either one of these runs out - it is time to buy a new bottle.

                          We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.
