I love this stuff. This was given to me by a friend and ever since I’ve been hooked. I put it on before bed and when I wake up my pimples are normally gone. Just make sure not to shake the bottle you want the pink clay to remain on the bottom.

I’ve seen small results ( like maybe a week or so). It feels really good on pimples or irritated spots. It smells really good too! Therefore i do recommend :)Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

This is so amazing!! Anytime i get a pimple i apply this at night and it will either shrink the pimple or it goes away entirely. I love this stuff. I recently bought it because i heard so many good things and i don’t regret it

I love this product!! When I get breakouts, I put this cream on and let it sit overnight. The next morning you can see and feel a difference as it reduces swelling and redness by a lot. It also dries out the areas very well.

Zaps blemishes very quickly and is reliable every time there is a break out! I highly recommend for anyone who has acne prone skin or a breakout that you want to heal quickly and efficiently!!

I truly don't understand what all of the hype with this product is. I purchased it after I was suggested it at Ulta. I felt like it did nothing for my problem areas and was a waste of money.

I like this product! It seems to work for smaller pimples/breakouts. But it doesn’t necessarily clear breakouts over night like some people say. I still think it’s great for only 17 dollars!

This is a must have. I’ve been using this drying lotion for some time now and it is a holy grail. There has not been another spot treatment that can diminish any acne inflammation like this.

I've heard a lot about this drying lotion or like other girls call it "pimple cream". How many of you have tried it and honestly have had a good out come? Would be nice to hear from the girls next door 🙂
