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.

ok first of all the product has very strong alcohol content so if you have sensitive skin this might not be for you. i on the other had loves it!! the best time to apply it is qhen ur pimple has fully grown out onto ur skin, when its so visible and it hurts. Apply a swab of this product to that pimple overnight and TADA when u wake up that pimp is dry!!! so great it takes my pimple 2 days to dry completely tops with only one night of application A M A Z I N G.

Expensive yet effective. I used a lot of pimple minimizer and pimple eraser products. This minimized my pores for two nights. I’m using this without toner since when I used it with toner it wasn’t effective (I was using Eskinol pimple fighting). Now I’m using this every night and my facial wash is Neutrogena and it is working. Say good-bye to breakouts na.

Life saver!

This product is a life saver! I was a bit hesitant to buy this because of its price but decided to give it a try. Thankfully, it works wonders! I spot treat my zits with this and they just dry up overnight. It stings a bit for a few seconds but this is definitely worth it.

Works wonders

Amazing!!!! This drying lotion really works, although dapat yung pimple is almost “ripe”. Sometimes, if your pimple is just starting, you will notice the next morning that in the part where you put the drying lotion, the skin already peeled off. This product, together with the cosrx pimple patches, really helps me get rid of my pimples fast. First, I use this for around 1-2 night to make the gunk be ready to come out. Then, when it’s ready, I use the pimple patches overnight to pull out the dirt and the next morning the pimple is gone.

It works!

I was always looking for a product that can remove my pimple immediately. This product was that product. It removes my pimples over night and if not maybe after three days. For a while it was a good product for me but after a few months, it kinda gave me a breakout because i figured that this product was a little harsh on my face. Don’t get me wrong, this product is a great product for big pimples but just not for me.

It was okay

I’ve read good reviews about this product before actually purchasing it. I’ve read some that says it wasn’t that effective overnight. I gave the product a try and convinced myself it would make my face acne free. I started using it the first night but the acne didn’t fade away so I thought maybe my skin is different and it will effect on my skin after a few days. After three days, my acne became bigger and multiplied!!!! This product is sooo hyped but we all have different skin types. This one’s a no for me.
