Mario Badescu Skin Care Drying Lotion
product thumbnail

Drying Lotion from Mario Badescu is formulated with sulfur, calamine, and zinc oxide, plus salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid that boasts the ability to exfoliate skin's surface and clean pores, making it an effective ingredient in helping to maintain a healthy-looking complexion.

How do I use it: 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 surface blemish. Do not rub product into the skin, and do not apply it near or to the eye area. Let dry and rinse off in the morning.

Mario Badescu Skin Care Drying Lotion is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the occasional breakout Mario Badescu's drying lotion has a bit of a cult following. I got it mostly for my daughter but even I get the occasional breakout and this just nips it right in the bad. Use it sparingly though as it can dry your skin out if you over do it! 4 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SPOT TREATMENT FOR ACNE I am 54 and still get occasional breakouts and pimples. This is the best spot treatment I have ever used. It works pretty much overnight. Even works on cystic acne. I'm so happy to see QVC is carrying this little miracle in a bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iconic This is absolutely the best product for instant "zit" removal. There is a reason it is not only iconic but has a fanatical cult following. Just a small dab with a cotton swab and whatever unsightly blemishes you may have are gone. Best if you leave on overnight but will also do if you need at that moment. If you use nothing else in the Mario Badescu line, use this one item. It is a game changer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STILL BEST AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I first learned of this product from my adult daughter, who still has occasional breakouts. If you follow the instructions: DO NOT SHAKE - the pink sediment works overnight miracles. It's the absolute best product for drying out blemishes I've ever tried, I'm now 65 & always keep a bottle on hand. The Badescu line offers simple, straightforward products at reasonable prices. Can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ZIT Remover Have used this for many years and will always purchase. If you feel a pimple starting under your skin, put some of this on it at bedtime and it is nearly gone by the next morning. Wish I had this as a teen. Dries out white heads, under skin pimples and any other type of pimples. Dries your skin out a lot of you if you apply for several nights, but I would rather have a dry patch then a pimple. You won’t be disappointed. I’m in my 50’s and still use it occasionally.
