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. May be applied to oily areas of the face. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This is a great product. Works really well. I've always had acne prone skin. About to turn 50 and still get an occasional breakout. I have used a lot of different products in the past 30 years. This makes me happy. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First product I ever bought from MB I saw a blurb in a fashion magazine about this Drying Cream 30 years ago. Tried it and loved it and have been a faithful MB customer ever since. A little dab of this on a pimple and it's gone the next morning. Looks like calamine. Dries fairly quickly. Works wonders. All my kids used/use this product with fantastic results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL THEIR PRODUCTS ARE AWESOME ESPECIALLY THIS ONE Yes a cult following for certain; feel a pimple coming on, dab this per instructions; overnight it's gone; I also use for enlarged pores as sort of a light coating (as it's pink so use very little) and it will absorb the oils and shine! I am a Badescu gal for 40 years and if you can make it to their midtown salon, book one of their facials - you will never regret it. Place is immaculate and they oversell, very generous with samples too. Love that QVC has valued this product line by incorporating into their vast client base..

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!
