Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

I like it so far. It does a tingle to it. Though my skin is naturally oily, with the second ingredient being alcohol, it is likely to dry out your skin with daily use. I bought this because of the comments and would like to see how well it works to remove acne scars and prevent new breakouts.

Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

I get breakouts and cystic acne on my back this is the only thing that has worked and its inexpensive. I put it in a spray bottle to make it easier to apply and I spray my back every time I get out of the shower now I rarely ever get breakouts on my back.

        if you have a hairy face like me...

        By Charliebearr

        from Tennessee

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

        I suffer from a hairy chin and have to shave it on a day to day basis, unfortunately that comes with razor burn and breakouts.

        THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN A GOD SEND

        I have noticed my skin breaking out less and less, not only that it really leaves my face with that extra clean soothing feeling I need after using heavy foundation after my work day. seriously girls, just try it.

        Cure to the horrid back and chest acne

        By sam

        from Westchester, New York

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

        This product is AMAZING for any acne on back or chest, after applying morning and night on back and chest my skin is as clear as ever! this product truly is a miracle in the bottle, if your battling the horrid bacne look no further your answers right here! Ive tried everything and nothings work as fast or better than this, note this is NOT MEANT FOR YOUR FACE it is too harsh/strong. The skin on your body is a lot thicker than the skin on your face it needs mild exfoliating DAILY!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion O:

        I took the test on Mario Badescu's website to see which skincare regimen is for me and it recommended this to me and I got free samples and I liked it so I bought larger versions of it. I have very oily skin as I'm going through puberty and I use this after I cleanse with the botanical facial gel. There is a strong scent to the product but I had no problem with it.

            How does this compare to Special Cleansing Lotion C? What's the difference between C and O?

              A:

              Our Special Cleansing Lotion O is a toner designed for body acne. This should not be used on facial skin. Our Special Cleansing Lotion O is for facial use to help reduce breakouts on very oily, acne erupted skin.

            If I have acne on my upper arms would the product help that too?

              A:

              Yes - the directions specify chest and back since those are the most frequent spots for body breakouts, but you can use it on other places of your body that are breaking out.

          • Q:

            Can I use this on my neck or should I use my face regime on that area (acne facial cleanser and special cucumber lotion)?
            Asked on 7/5/2016 by Beth from Denver, CO

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The skin on your neck may be too delicate for the Special Cleansing Lotion O, so you should start with the Special Cucumber Lotion first. If you are still experiencing breakouts on your neck, you can then step-up to the Special Cleansing Lotion O.
