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.

Cystic Pimples? Effective! 👌

Acne runs in our blood that's why I have already tried a lot of anti acne products. THIS is really effective for inflamed cystic Pimples! I apply this to spots inflamed before bedtime and leave it overnight then VIOLA! However, for pimples that are big effects work after using it for 2 to 3 consecutive days. But overall, I would recommend this product. ❤️

I've been having non stop breakouts for the past week and my sister recommended this to me. I used it with no expectations but to my pleasant surprise, it works! It works as a spot treatment. You need just a small amount and dot in on the affected area and you're done. I love how it deflated "ripe" pimples rather quickly. I found that it also helps stop pimples that are just starting to sprout. This bottle will definitely you around 10-12 months.

works so well

Have always been a fan of Mario Badescu. Drying lotion works so well. Use it before bed and pimple dries up the next day. Only downside for me would be the pink gunk that's a bit hard to come off and the price tag :( Overall, good product! Definitely something I want to keep on my shelf

I just got this yesterday and I absolutely love this product so much!!! I have tried so many different face washes, moisturizer, spot treatments, etc. and absolutely nothing had worked for me. A friend told me I should try this and I'm so happy to say that it actually worked!! It didn't work over night like everyone said, however the second night of using the face wash, cucumber lotion, and the drying lotion. My family and friends even noticed a huge difference in my face. Thank you Mario Badescu!

Noticed how fast my pimples would dry up. I have been using this for almost 2 weeks already almost every night before bed. I use it after I wash my face and put some toner. My pimple would really shrink in two consecutive nights of application. For transparency, it would actually sting for a few seconds (not really painful) 👍

Pimple, where?

This really does what it's supposed to do. I bought mine last May, it's already the last week of July and I'm not even halfway this little bottle. It depend on how many spots you have but I used to have plenty before this product. Depending on what kind of pimple you have, this lotion can REALLY dry up that insecurity in 1-3 days. I said goodbye to unwanted zits 2 months ago. Make sure to use a moisturizer the next morning, the skin around your pimple might create dry patches.
