This product is my biggest go to. The directions say to put it on problem pimples and blemishes and leave it on overnight, but if I know I will be going out or anything, I will put this on straight when I see a pimple appearing, throw some on, and even in a couple hours I will see results. This is definitely a must have.

I absolutely love this drying lotion, I can put this on a pamper him overnight and by the next morning it goes from a mountain to a tiny little spot, two days in a row and the pimple will be completely gone. This is worth every penny it cost

I give this Mario badescu drying lotion five-star because I love it and every time I get a pimple I put it on my face or before I get a break out I put it on my face and it drives it up the next morning

I don’t know what they put in this little bottle but it’s MAGIC. It dries up any pimples I have so fast and I have never found anything like it before! It lasts forever too! Would definitely recommend this

I would not say that it dries out the pimple completely but if you put this on before bed by the time you wake up it will be significantly reduced. Works the best on pimples that have not come to a head yet.

AMAZING.  This is a miracle. Works almost overnight. It does what it is supposed to do and dries blemishes. I would recommend and I love this product. This was purchased from Nordstrom.
