Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
Great product. Seems to do a good job at clearing pimples in a shorter time than other spot treatments. I believe it is a good value. It doesn't rub off to much after it dries so it won't get all over your bedding. Will definitely keep using.
Literally love these products so much. I was breaking our for some odd reason and I used the product and left it over night. I woke up washed it off and it literally dried out everything. I used it once more and it cleared everything I had. I love this product and use for emergency cases.
When I purchased this product, the woman at Ulta swore up and down that it was a miracle product. I bought it and sure, it dries out pimples, but I didn’t see any significant change over night. If you are trying to get rid of a pimple fast I don’t think this is your miracle product.
This product works fairly well, but only for Whitehead’s it won’t work on cystic acne. I also noticed that it leaves scarring after the pimple goes away. I would only recommend using this if you have a pimple you need to go away fast and you don’t care if it scars.
This drying lotion is great for deep in zits. I think it helps a lot to prevent a zit from growing when you feel it starting to come. It’s not as effective with getting rid of an already large zit but does help to put on a zit after it has already been popped.
This stuff is so strong. I bought it for tough to get rid of blemishes (cystic acne). I think it definitely helps. I use a Q-tip to apply. The bottle looks pretty small for the price but it lasts for a good amount of time. Once it dries, the smell disappears.
Love this for new breakouts! It’s So easy to apply, just use a q-tip. The only thing I hate is the smell. This products has a medicated smell to it that I hate because when I wake up the next morning I smell it on my hair, pillows and blankets that I can’t stand. Other than the sme, the product works!
I was very weary about this product because it's so expensive for such a tiny bottle. However, I am very glad I ended up buying it because it is seriously a miracle worker! I put it on a big pimple and overnight it was pretty much gone. Definitely worth the money!
I loved this product! It works amazingly, I have oily skin and when I have a pimple I just apply it on, and it dries it really fast. I was really impressed by this product because most products I've tried from other brands don't work as well as this drying lotion.
I have never spent this much money for a OTC acne treatment. This does WONDERS. Its kind of unappealing when you put it on because you'll have pink/white spots all over your face. But it WILL reduce any new acne or whiteheads. The holy grail of acne products.
