Trust the reviews! If you have struggled with acne, this is the product you have been searching for; try it and you will never look back! This clears acne-use it as directed, it is brilliant. I have always struggled with acne.. niggly spreads of spots at hormonal times. This sorted out my onset of painful and confidence crushing hormonal cystic acne that has started to appear each month. Use this, you'll be able to go out without foundation etc. in just a week or two. Amazing, lasts ages and great value. Thank you, Mario Badescu!
I bought this product less than 3 weeks ago and i am really impressed. I have an acne problems over 15years, i remark that when a new pimple comes out and put on the lotion the next day its much more better. But i think it is too expensive for his quantity.
So far so good! Over the past 6 months I had developed hormonal cystic acne on my chin and a recent pending outbreak of about 4 led me to panic and impulsively purchase this lotion. I'm glad I did, I've used to for 2 days now at night and although they are not completely gone they are smaller, not painful and not visible or red which leads me to think they're disappearing. Fingers crossed it continues this way!
Couldn't agree with the last comment more this lotion is absolutely brilliant! I suffer from the occasional large painful cyst-like spot on my face and within a day of using this lotion it has reduced in size and the pain of the spot has gone away and within two days it has almost gone. It is amazing I have never used such an incredible spot treatment! Highly recommend!
This actually works! I get hormonal breakouts on my chin, they're big and painful and always leave a scar. I would start using this nightly about a week before my period comes and it actually helps to prevent those deep acne from enlarging from all the inflammation underneath the skin. I don't think anything can stop those hormonal breakouts from forming, other than hormone treatments like going on the pill, but this definitely helps to keep them as small and go away as quick as possible. Only downside is the strong alcoholic smell. I suggest dispensing a couple of drops into the palm of your hands first, let the alcohol evaporate a bit, then dab onto the affected area with your finger tips.
I think almost everyone have mentioned it, but it is really difficult to apply because of its liquid consistency. Nevertheless it does fastens the healing process for cystic acne, but I would appreciate if Mario Badescu developed the formula with a different base or disposal method.
One more must have from my favorite Mario. Really helpful for huge painful pimples both on the face and body. Smells awfully, and seems like it is really harsh, but turns out it even has a little moistening effect. Great product for its price, I will definitely repurchase it and recommend it to everyone with problem skin.
I love this product so much, it does exactly what it says.
The BEST THING I have used to relieve the bumps on my chin!!!! Have been suffering with cystic acne for months due to stress/hormonal issues. This product is nice and light and can be worn under make up. I use it once a day though before bed and some disappear after one application and there are others which take a little longer but still works its magic to reduce redness/size. MUST HAVE if you suffer from cystic acne or big pimples.
I dunno, did nothing for my blemishes, but dried the whiteheads. Which is good I guess, but wanted something for blemishes
Great for those painful, red spots. I had been suffering with what could be described as hormonal breakouts. I was getting spots at a rate of one a day which were leaving dark marks. I had previously purchased the Dry lotion which was helping to dry the spots out but I needed something extra. This really packs a punch. I have been applying this under drying lotion overnight. Spots went down in no. I have been using this in small amounts and can see that it will last me for a long while. I can't say that this stopped my breakouts altogether, it did help to manage them until I found a solution. Another winner by MB.
I have used this product for the last 4 years and I would never stray. The trick is to use this as soon as you realise there is a pimple and this lotion stops it, eliminates redness and in three days there is no sign of it! If I don&#39;t use this, dreaded pimple will grow in size and redness, I then have to pop it. That will leave a huge mark that will take 6 months or more to fade! Use this, you won't regret it! It's amazing...
I had really bad hormonal breakouts that weren't disappearing with the normal acne treatments, so I was desperate. With this lotion I have it finally under control, it really is my holly grail! So happy that I purchased!
doesnt work very fast like i thought it would... but does help
The smell is terrible, but the product is my HOLY GRAIL-miracle-product. I can't live without it!
I use this treatment once daily, i have really noticed a difference in my skin, after suffering with acne for over 10 years my cystic acne hasn't gone but it's a lot better. This treatment doesn't dry skin and reduces spot size very quickly. Ive used hundreds of different products and this is one of the best, a must have.
This works on close acne - cystic acne quite well. It will last for a long time.
I really like the texture of this lotion. Doesn't dry out the skin at all. I'm yet to comment on it's effectiveness, although after one week of using it, my breakouts have slowed down. I should hope that it prevents any more cystic acne from forming.
I use this nightly before any other serums/treatments I apply to my skin. It instantly became an absolute 'must have'- I have not had a serious breakout since using this product (a miracle). My fav Mario product so far.
Smells really bad, but it works! No more pimples for me! :)
this is the second time that I bought it, i love it.awesome!
This product really works! It will take a few days for cystic acne to go away but the buffering lotion definitely speeds up the process. I'm thinking of trying the drying mask as well now...
This one's a good one! It helps to prevent cystic acne. It doesn't dry out my skin. Not all of my spots are gone, but it really helps to keep spots at bay!
I have this product and i like it very very much. It is super light and dissapiers in the skin very fast. It doesnt dry the skin. I use it even in the morning.Very nice product. No breakouts or dry skin.
I am really impressed with this product. It comes in a handy size plastic screw top container and you shake before applying with fingertips. I find it easier to put some in the palm of my hand then use other hand to apply. I put this on after cleansing and before moisturising. I had a lot of congestion and white heads under my skin and also suffer from those horrible blind spots under the skin that you can't do anything with, this product definiely reduces and elimiates! Very impressed with all the Mario Badescu products I bought!
To be honest I don't personally find this to be as quick and amazing as other people do (but I'm yet to find one that works like that), but it is good and quite effective, it just needs more time to work. What I like the most though is that it doesn't dry my skin out at all (and that's often the issue with this type of products) and it doesn't interfere with my foundations, it almost feels like a primer, which is great because it means you can use it during the day under your makeup as well as at night.
I put this on before bed after washing my face and toning - after the first use it was like my spots had been "buffed" down and had dramatically decreased.
Perfect for ginormous horror cystic acne, or just a random big honking zit.
I get very sore cystic acne on my chin and after using this they have reduced in size and time that they are there - will keep buying!
Really works for me. My skin is going back to normal! Very satisfied with this product! I will keep using it.
I couldn't be without this now. After the first application, all redness was reduced and I felt much more confident that my skin would calm down again. It does take time for spots to completely disappear but purchasing this and the Drying Lotion has been a saviour.
I am currently 5 months pregnant and my left cheek had erupted with pregnancy acne and I had tried other harsher products and they did nothing for me. But this, coupled with the healing cream has gotten rid of the spots, the red, the underneath spots AND the scarring in just a week. I am so so impressed with this product. Worth every penny!
I love this product. I have been using it for a few years, and it is the first product I have found that controls my hormonal acne (and I have tried many, many products over the years). And it's also gentle on my skin and doesn't cause any irritation. It's a staple for me.
not as great as the other reviews have said i didnt find anything that AMAZING about it. it does control a lot of the pimples and ive noticed less pimples, i put it on before bed and dry up existing spots or erupted pimples tho i wouldnt say it cleared and dried up my pimple/s in one day.
Another fantastic product from mario. I have only been using this for two days and any cystic spots I did have are practically gone. can't stress how much I love mario's products, its the only thing that actually works.
This is very effective. I get cystic spots around my mouth and this reduces redness and dries them out. I actually prefer this to the drying lotion as it's more gentle and doesn't make your skin flake. I'm definitely buying this product again.
I adore this product!The price here is the best you will find, plus I always manage to find a guilty smattering of other products I want! In addition to being invaluable for cystic(deep) spots,thrice-daily application on terrible skin days can take me from grotesque to dried up and healing in a day!As a sufferer of dread hormonal cystic spots I adore this!
I have been using this product for a week and I have the most dramatic improvement in my skin. Even small, under the skin, stubborn spots on my forehead have gone. I have never used a skin product that I would rave about but the buffering lotion has changed that! Defiantly going to repurchased and have already recommended it to a friend!
Four words; It really does work! Anyone who suffers from acne should have one of these in hand.
Just felt compelled to update as since december I have been using and I haven't yet had a big nasty cystic pimple. I usually break out once a month and before I started using it was becoming uncontrollable. I use every day as it seems to be working well as a preventative this way. It may not work for all but if you suffer with cystic acne pls give a it a go.
This is the only treatment I've found that works on cystic acne - standard spot treatments have no effect at all. I've found it's most effective if I put it on as soon as a spot starts. Highly recommended.
After reading some good reviews of this product I decided to buy off Beauty Bay. The pricing was good and delivery excellent. The actual product has so far done a lot to reduce the chances of cystic breakouts. I have one on my face now but am almost positive that it would be a hell of a lot bigger and joined by others without this lotion. Will repurchase!
Great product! Worked well on my under-the-skin acne, the little bumps you get that don't actually turn into spots! Feels really clean on my face, and a good product to use in between my more rigorous facial routines when i want to give my skin a break.
great product - worked great in reducing the redness of big lumps under my skin and perfect for clearing spots that don't come to anything!would recommend x
Bought this because had heard good reviews on the net and also celebs seem to be raving about it. Sorry but can't say i was that impressed. It's meant to reduce painful blind spots that are like lumps under the skin but i didn't find it helped at all. However it earned 2 stars only because it is very soothing if your skin is stiniging. wont be repurchasing.
Excellent product , very effective in treating cystic acne. It work wonders with my skin!
