PERFECT FOR: Minimizing red, inflamed pimples

Best spot treatment I’ve ever found
January 2018
”I’ve had severe acne for 5 years and every spot treatment I’ve tried just leaves my skin dry and irritated. This one ACTUALLY gets rid of the pimple. Practically overnight. I will repurchase this.”
–Zoey the skincare enthusiast (from mariobadescu.com)

I use this product every night!
January 2017
”At night after I cleanse and moisturize, I apply Mario Badescu Drying Lotion on affected areas. This stuff works so well and I always expect real results. Over the course of five days, this product has minimized acne to the point where it is almost untraceable! I am actually excited to wake up in the morning and see the results. As long as acne is at bay, I will always keep using this product!”
–Hannah M (from mariobadescu.com)

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Drying Lotion
INGREDIENTS: Isopropyl Alcohol, Aqua (Water, Eau), Calamine, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Sulfur, Camphor, Talc, Glycerin, Salicylic Acid

DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE. Before bed (after cleansing and toning), dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Dab directly on the whitehead; do not rub in. Let dry and rinse off in the morning. Do NOT use on broken skin. Do not apply to eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

No matter how tempted you are, don’t shake the bottle. Don’t worry if you do—simply set the bottle on an even, flat surface. Leave it undisturbed overnight and voilà: your Drying Lotion is settled and looking brand new.

Mario Badescu

Mario Badescu had a vision to bring to New York City his European-style facials—and it was in 1967, out of his two-room Manhattan apartment, when the world-renowned salon and product line were born. News of his unique philosophy and loyal following (which included a star-studded roster of in-the-know New Yorkers) quickly spread and Badescu’s home-turned-studio flourished.

Over 50 years later, Mario Badescu is the name that continues to transcend generations and span the entire life-cycle of skin: from powerful acne solutions to potent anti-aging treatments, Mario Badescu customize regimens for every skin type and concern imaginable. Simple, gentle, and effective skin care—that’s the Mario Badescu philosophy for skincare.

A miracle in a bottle!

Bye zits!!!! At first I'm a bit hesitant because of its price. So I really crossed my fingers while checking it out hoping that this would help me clear my pimples. If you want something that would work for pimples overnight or 2, then this is a must have! I also recommended this to my mom and she liked it. She even bought one for herself.

Best Recommendation

For the past couple of months, I thought I had the worst experience of getting pimple breakouts. This by far helped me with my steroid acne and it did lessen the pimple breakouts and its marks. This was only recommended by a friend and I am glad that it really does work. Worth the price!

Good results so far!

Just tried this last night, it stings a bit especially on pimples that are just new. When it arrived it was all mixed up probably because of the courier, so I was really worried because it clearly says on the bottle that you shouldn’t shake it. I let it sit for a while and it separated, so all is good. When I woke up in the morning my pimples were peeling and looks smaller!

Really effective!

Despite the price, a bottle this product lasted me about 8 months to finish, and it really does get the job done. It does help dry-up the pimples fast. From my experience, small pimples usually take at least 1 night to dry up and the bigger ones, I just apply for 2-3 nights til it's all flat. It does sting but it is bearable in my opinion.

Where have you been all my life??!!

I applied it on my pimples then voila, those stubborn and pesky pimples that I've veen dealing with for a few days are already gone the next morning. Although it didn't work magic for my huge zit but I saw the difference after first use. A bit expensive for a small product but it is worth it. 🙌🏻👌🏻

Excellent but only at first

I didn’t buy my bottle of this in BeautyMNL but in Rustan’s. I must say that this really does its job. What I did back then was just follow my routine which was makeup remover-cleanser-toner-serum-moisturizer then this if I have a zit and it finishes off the zit in just one night. However, when you have used this for a while already it won’t work anymore.
