Honestly, I only post reviews when credit is deserved and want to share a great discovery. ~ This is moisturizer is awesome! In order to give a true review, I will explain my skin type and how this product works for me. FYI (I don't work for Loreal nor am I getting paid to give this review.)

It definitely quenches my 48 year old sensitive, dry and thirsty skin. My hair is caucasian naturally curly and I have the dry skin that goes along it. Because of that, I started moisturizing at the age of 13. My first skin care regimen was Oil of Olay every night because my grandmother had beautiful skin and that is what she used. Perhaps it did some good, no one believes me when I tell them my age. However, since it wasn't enough for my skin after the age 40, I began the long grueling task of product testing to find the right super-duper moisturizer.

Since my skin is very sensitive and learned the hard way to always research what I put on my face. During this quest, I learned from a distributor that worked for Loreal and Lancome that they were sister companies and both use very similar ingredients. In addition, they both do extensive research into creating their products. Of course, the first thing I did when I returned home was Google it to verify if this was factual information. Sure enough, it was true. I also looked up both company's products and compared them to each other. Very similar! Even though I would love to only purchase Lancome's expensive products, it just isn't practical. So, I began testing Loreal products. (Every now and then, I will buy Lancome's Absolute Night cream.) Good News! Loreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal is the closest thing to it. Believe it or not, I even put it on my lips because it actually taste good! (I saw on the ingredients there is honey in it.) I kid you not, it smells as good as it taste! (Promise, I'm not looney!) No strong perfume smells. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and with a slight glow. The best part is that it absorbs right in and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. It meets all of my requirements for a moisturizer.

Let's face the ugly reality, there's no miracle cream or snake oil that will erase the age of time. Instead, all we can do is moisturize and take care of what we have! So far I am happy with this product and almost finished with my second jar. I will buy more! Love it!

This review is specifically for the pink drying lotion that comes in the kit, that can be purchased separately. I looooveeeeeeeeeee the pink drying lotion. I’m prone to getting zits and little white bumps here and there and this lotion helps with diminishing the size and redness.

However I have to mention that when using this product on my blemishes, it tends to leave a darker acne scar vs letting the zit pop on it’s own/heal on it’s own time. But I’m not a patient person and my zits need to go the minute they pop in to say hello. So this pink guy is a life saver.

It’s pricey for the amount of product, back when I had a lot of acne I used this every night and would go through a bottle within a month. But now not so much, it lasts a good 9-10 months. It’s $17 bucks at Ulta. Worth the price! And will keep repurchasing!

I love this product 👌🏻 and has helped me with my breakouts! The price is $17 dollars and it’s pricey. I bought this product at urban outfitters and it was my first time buying it. I got recommended on Mario  Badescu skincare. If your a new customer you could creat an account on there website and get free samples only for the first time and only for U.S customers for only $2.95 for sample shipping!☺️

I’ve only used the drying lotion, but I couldn’t find an option with just the dying lotion. I do like this product, and feel like it definitely helps but only when the acne spot I am targeting is showing a white bump. If it’s just one of those painful red bumps that let you know acne is on its way then this didn’t really work for those areas (but the anti acne serum does). I do like using this on those white spots, especially on my nose since it doesn’t rub off as easily in my sleep. It had a slight alcohol scent to it but not too strong.

I have actually only ever used the Mario Badescu drying lotion and the rose water spray. The drying lotion works very well for me. I put it on at night on acne and if I break out with pimples and you can see how they shrink in the morning. It’s really good for pimple prevention, sometimes I can tell when I’m about to get a pimple because it gets itchy and red so I put the lotion on it. You just dab it on and sleep with it on and wash it off in the morning, I just use warm water and after a couple drops it kind of melts away.

I used the buffering lotion and drying lotion. I would put the buffering lotion on cystic acne spots and drying lotion on both the cystic acne and regular white heads. The buffering lotion helped to reduce the size of my pimples. However, I like the drying lotion better. It dries out my breakouts and reduces the inflammation. However, sometimes it's hard to wash off in the morning. Maybe I'm not using a tough enough face wash, but sometimes I would have to scratch it off slightly which would irritate my pimples.

I’ve only used the drying lotion & buffing lotion. The drying lotion is amazing!! I’ve used up an entire bottle which lasted about 6 months. I would use this at night doing spot treatments & the next morning I’d have no pimple or it wouldn’t be as big or hard. The price is somewhat expensive hence why I haven’t repurchase but the effect does wonders. The buffing lotion id use when my pimples were under surface & painful. This helped sometimes, not every time I used it. I bought both from ulta

I am a student who studies all day and I get super stressed out and get acne. I have super dry skin and it is hard for me to get rid of all the tiny acne bumps all over my face. This product works so well. At night I just dab a little bit on my acne blemishes and when I wake up they have either completely faded or all the redness is gone away and it has started to fade. this is a great product that will last you a long time and you will definetly get what you pay for. i recommend this.

I’m so bad at staying on top of multi-step acne treatments! Really bough, that’s my only complaint. My mom handed me a bottle of drying lotion when I was in high school, and it’s still my favorite MB product. My brother had really bad cystic acne and was actually on accutane for a long time, and this set helped calm him down to more average breakouts and the drying lotion tamed cysts from the size of a silver dollar down to a nickel. This is something I’ll always keep in my kit.

This kit was the first time I got Mario Bardescu. I needed something for acne control I was trying out products and found this kit which was perfect for what I was looking for. It didn’t disappoint. Be careful some of the products might be too strong so depending on the acne level talk to professional first. However getting the kit is a good idea to start. Costs about $30 something but it will pay off. Since I got it I always go to their aisle to see what might work for my skin.

I just got this Mario Badescu acne repair kit from friend that didn't like the line. It didn't come with the paperwork or the box. I know the drying lotion you do NOT shake or mix up, so is it a spot treatment? Something you would wear at night?? Thank you XD

So as of right now I am 14 and I've had acne since about 4th grade, maybe 3rd. I've always had oily skin and I've always had trouble when trying to get rid of my acne. I've been able to reduce it by a lot but I'm still trying to get crystal clear skin. Is this a product that I should try?
