Can’t live without it
January 2018
”I never write reviews but this product is worth taking the time to do so…. I am 29 years old and started getting mild cystic acne last year. Not sure why… maybe it was because I started to wear foundation, or maybe because of my hormones. I changed my foundation and went on the birth control pill and I am now barely getting cystic pimples anymore… but those are challenging! I was desperate to find something to make them go away and after searching the Internet, I found this website. Ordered this product… and haven’t stopped using it since. I only use it when I get a pimple. As soon as I feel one coming, I apply it right away. I apply it in the morning under my makeup so that it could work on it during the day and then before going to bed. It is very hard to apply sometimes because it is very liquid-y and just runs down your face, and if I use a Q-tip it absorbs everything… so I simply use my clean fingertips. It really helps in bringing out the puss… I use it on regular pimples too. But I honestly can’t live without it … buy it!”

Very watery

I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin after use for a week. I like the drying lotion a bit more for taking care of blemishes and blackheads. The price is ok but I wish I had seen more of a difference in my skin for what I paid. Perhaps I need to use it longer but the application was tricky. It comes out very watery, it has to be fully shaken.

No improvement

I was told that this product is specifically for cystic acne. I have been using it for 3-4 weeks and don’t find that it improves the actual timeline of the bump subsiding. It takes more than 5 days for any changes unless I pop the pimple. It’s basically isopropyl alcohol.

strong alcohol scent

I will not go a day without using this! It is more like a toner than a lotion. And has a strong alcohol scent. It cleas up the pesky under the skin blemishes and bumps within days. I have had issues with hormonal acne for almost a year and I have tried countless products... this being the first one that has truly worked and made a visible difference within days.

did not work for me

I had really bad cystic acne for years and years. I wanted to try this regime before trying Accutane. I washed with acne face wash and put this on before moisturizing. I tried this for over three months with absolutely no sign of change. My cystic acne never got better and continued to be painful throughout treatment. I ended up having to go on Accutane, which cleared it up. I'm not sure if it was the product or how severe my acne was, but this buffering lotion did not work for me.

It works!

Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion really works! It dries pimple overnight by simply putting small amount of the lotion on the affected area. It has a smell, but totally tolerable. I’ve been using this product for few months now every time a pimple would pop on my face. And tadah! Like a magic the pimple is gone the following morning.

super love ♥️

I’ve been using this product for a year now and I must say, I cannot live without this. I have sensitive skin so I am always very careful on what to put or use on my face. I first use the drying lotion which is also effective. Just too much work and it has color, unlike this buffering lotion very easy to use. Just shake and tap to the affective area. The color is a plus for me. Recommended to all the girls who are always busy and always in a hurry.
