CLAIM TO FAME: Mario Badescu’s award-winning spot treatment for whiteheads

FAST FACTS: Helps dry up pesky pimples overnight; draws impurities from the skin with salicylic acid, sulfur, and zinc oxide; relieves any itchiness or discomfort with calamine; original, fast-acting formula makes it an effective spot treatment to remain a best-selling favorite amongst beauty editors, celebrities, and professionals worldwide

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.

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.

Needs to be applied a couple times

This product does what it says it does. Other users may have experienced its effect when used once, but in my case, when there’s really a big one, it needs to be applied a couple of times until the pimple totally dries out. At night, this is what I usually use as spot treatment since during the day this might not be something you would use since it would really be very visible. This product, along with Cosrx pimple patch, are the only spot treatment products that I use for acnes.

Earned a permanent spot...

Earned a permanent spot... in my skin care kit. Don't be afraid to buy this product even it has a 4 digit price for a size of a serum bottle but it will certainly last for months before it gets over. It wont end the acne right away, but it dries the acne fast. Depends on how bad the acne is, might take about 2-5 days.

Does what it says it’ll do

This drying lotion is... drying, indeed. It works like magic on smaller spots but takes some more time to make its effect on bigger bumps. A warning though! It STINGS. Like, *really* stings. As a result, it can be really harsh on the skin. So if you have sensitive skin, I think it’s better if you skip this one. There are plenty of other more affordable alternatives out there that are just as effective or maybe even better and offer more benefits like fading of scars, which this drying lotion does not do at all. In fact, the harshness of the formula might actually be a cause for your skin to get a dark scar. But in general, I would still recommend this drying lotion. In my opinion, it works best as an emergency product. Like if you need to dry a pimple tonight just in time for an event tomorrow kind of emergency. This might come in handy for those situations, but maybe not for everyday use.
