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.
29 July 2011 Jas
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!
06 May 2011 Amy
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.
08 February 2011 Lisa
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
14 December 2009 Tara Allen
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.
