    Comments about Mario Badescu Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion:

    This product worked better than anything else we have tried for my teenage daughter's occasional acne. She puts the spot treatment on at night and the next day the pimples are visibly smaller. Make sure not to shake the bottle. The treatment is supposed to settle in the bottom of the bottle and you stick a Q-tip in until it reaches the bottom and then pull it straight up. Luckily when we purchased this the first time a sales person told us how to use it.

          Used on a pimple overnight. Woke up with a burned red spot that turned into a scab and took over 3 weeks to heal, still have a red spot that I must conceal heavily. I have normal skin and no sensitivity to products usually.

            Bought it casue all Ive heard was good things about it but it isn't all that great. But doesn't work all that great. Especially for how much t costed. I will say it works pretty good on pimples by not for acne scars.

                  I saw this product a few weeks ago, and didn't believe what all the talk was about. I went into Ulta, and decided to give it a shot, and WOW i'm glad I did/ Super easy to use. I use a Q tip and dab it on the blemish before I go to bed, and when I wake up, it put a huge smile on my face because the blemish is gone!! Highly recommend!

                    Can you put this on a popped pimple? I just popped a small zit and put some of the stuff over it and it burned for maybe less than 30 seconds and stopped, so it won't cause any redness or any sort or irritation right?

                      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.
