Mario Badescu's Award Winning Drying Lotion that targets pesky problems with the original, on-the-spot surface blemish solution. This is a fast-acting formula that helps dry up surface blemishes overnight - earning Drying Lotion renown as an iconic, award-winning must-have.



  • No. 1 best-seller
  • Formulated in the 1960s by Mario Badescu himself
  • Clarifying, bi-phase solution
  • Helps dry up surface blemishes overnight by drawing out impurities from targeted spots
  • Works to visibly reduce the look of surface blemishes the next day

How To Use

Do NOT shake the bottle. Before bed (after cleansing and toning), dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Dab directly on the surface blemish; do not rub in. Let dry and rinse off in the morning. Do NOT use on broken skin. Do not apply to eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

Here's why you don't shake it: Drying Lotion is designed to work most effectively as a bi-phase solution. Every time you apply a pink dot to your face, each application acts like a tiny, overnight mask that gives targeted attention to the blemish. You want the product to be clay-like so that it goes on opaque and pink, completely covering the bump.
