It works like magic. Great for drying out blemishes. It's a bit pricey for this amount of product. It is not that harsh, it does not dry my skin (which is drier thab Saharan Desert) out. I would definitely buy it again.

¡Una necesidad! Lo compré después de oír a un grupo de personas hablar sobre él, y no defraudó, seguramente matará cualquier espinilla durante la noche (al menos para mí), al día siguiente estaba bien para ir. No se extiende como los demás y se siente como un químico mientras usa la punta q a través de los líquidos.

Perfect for every type of skin, this has helped me so much with my pimples. You apply it on the spot as soon as you see it and in 2-4 days it completely dissappears

This product is my go to. I use this every time I see a pimple pop out. I apply it with a q-tip each night over my breakout areas and the next day the acne is gone

This product is really good. I apply it every night that I can see pimples starting to rise and by the morning, they've gotten significantly smaller! The smell is really bad but for the result I can look past it.

Great for drying pesky pimples and spots. Helps bring pimples to the surface, dries them up pretty quick in around 2-3 days. Does get caught on dry spots and hard to wash off

Love this drying lotion. I have been using this product over 2 months now. It dry small pimples very quick, however takes longer time to dry larger pimples. It is true lily an amazing product to be honest. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

I've heard many YouTubers rave about the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion so I had to finally pick it up to try for myself. I felt a red bump on my chin so immediately that night I dapped on the lotion. It is not all that cute as it dries white so can only use it at night time. The next morning the bump got smaller and not any redder. Usually it would get bigger and redder. Totally works!
