This product is great- it actually does shrink pimples overnight! It does smell awful but the results are worth it. Don't bother using this on painful pimples that are under the skin, it doesn't do them much good. Anything else, though, and it will dry them up and shrink them in no time. This is a must have for me, and I wouldn't want to be without it.
02 September 2014
Totally understand why this is a cult fav. It's great for emergencies, but tend to hurt. No pain no gain though!
02 September 2014
It works great, but the smell is terrible! Fortunately it goes away quickly. Before using this product you need to apply toner to moisturize you skin first.
19 August 2014
This awesome producte helped me to solve all acne problemes. I love it and recomend it to everyone!
14 August 2014
It works great, but the smell is terrible! Fortunately it goes away quickly. Otherwise, it really works :)
30 July 2014
the name tells what it is, really drying lotion. so better use it on white pimples
24 July 2014
This is my must-have which has rescued me so many times. I do not use it for face - although my skin is rather oily, this is a harsh product. I use it for pimples that tend to appear of my back, as well as those appearing after wax depilation (ingrown hairs). It takes a night to make a pimple smaller and get rid of the painful feeling, and 2 nights to forget about the pimple.
Great product for its price.
19 July 2014
Really good! It really helps reducing acne without irritating sensitive skin. But it is essential to moisturize the skin before and after using it.
11 June 2014
I have terrible skin and this is great for getting rid of stubborn areas, i use this with the buffering lotion and it has honestly made such a difference, i had cystic acne and now its gone! I use it every night I LOVE THIS STUFF
04 June 2014
Don't expect miracles - this product is really effective and works about 80% of the time if you catch a spot in time. The best way to use it is to dab the potential spot with tea tree oil first, let the oil dry then repeat 2 more times then put the drying lotion on and leave on overnight. It dries in pink dots - not very attractive but if it kills the spot, its worth it!
02 June 2014
Works better on small pimples than on the big scary ones, but would usually improve the condition of either kind. I've ordered it 3 times already and would highly recommend.
19 May 2014
My skin is not acne prone but I get pimples now and then (that time of the month, you now). OMG this product kills pimples over night. It's not magic but it seems to, great product. Be careful it is really drying.
SPANISH: no soy propensa a los granitos, solo de vez en cuando. Bueno, este producto es realmente fantástico seca los granitos en una noche, de verdad muy aconsejado. Pero debe usarse con cuidado y solo en los granos ya que seca de verdad la piel.
17 May 2014
It doesn't make a miracle, but helps!
15 May 2014
It does working at the beginning but after 5times I used, it doesn't have any acne treatment effect any more.
13 May 2014
I have struggled with acne for a very long time, at 20, I'm still struggling with my skin and I feel like I have tried everything out there that says it will help. I stumbled upon the Mario Badescu products and I am so happy I did! I only decided to purchase the drying lotion and the acne cleanser to start off with in case, like all the other products I've tried, they didn't work and I'd be wasting my money, but with these two products I am so happy to say I am noticing a remarkable difference in my skin! I put the drying lotion on any breakouts or spots I have just before I go to bed. I must admit the smell isn't the most pleasant but after a few minutes it goes away so it doesn't put me off! It dries in super quick so there's no waiting around for it to dry before going to bed, and when I wake up any spot that I had has noticeably reduced in size or has completely gone. For me it definitely reduces those under the skin cystic spots in just one night! So amazing! I think this along with the acne facial cleanser has really helped my skin! I have now purchased a few more Mario Badescu products and I hope they work just as good!
04 May 2014
OMG, THIS LITTLE BOTTLE CARRIES THE ANSWER TO PIMPLES, DRIES THEM OFF OVERNIGHT, BUT SKIN DOESNT GET FLAKY. YES 100 TIMES.
14 April 2014
Bought this because of all the amazing reviews, but was so disappointed. It just doesn't work for me, at all. I have hormonal acne on my chin and only my chin (not cystic, but I'd get like 1 or 2 pretty big spots every single week/two weeks or so. While my old ones heal I'd get new ones again which is so annoying.) and I put it on before I go to bed. At first I can feel a cooling sensation and it FEELS like it works, but after a while it dries up and the sensation is gone. I wake up and my spot's even worse. Doesn't dry it up at all. It's as if the lotion draws it out more quickly instead of calming it down. I'm not giving up on it but I've used it a few times now and I'm so sad about it not working. Gonna keep trying it though.
09 April 2014
AMAZING! it is perfect, I am over the moon with it
01 April 2014
30 March 2014
It works miracles! I use it every night and it makes a difference!
11 March 2014
absolute life saver! just put it on, go to sleep and wake up beautiful! love love love
04 March 2014
GOT THAT BIG NASTY BUMP? This works AMAZING. Helps to dry out your pimples real quick!
01 March 2014
nice n it's work!
25 February 2014
Hands down!!! I have never encountered a product which works as fast as this. I have cystic acne, and when i dab i on over night, it help calm the swelling down and it also quickens the healing time of the spot to 2-3 days. Amazing for me!
24 February 2014
Excellent. Works well on whiteheads, will reduce size and inflamation in about 1-2. It does make that part of the skin pretty drying - hence the name! Smell isn't too offensive and texture is akin to Camomile lotion. I just dip a clean cotton bud all the way to the bottom of the bottle and apply. I have found this has no effect on under the skin spots unless they have come to the surface. Would recommend this, has been great for hormonal breakouts.
09 February 2014
This product is amazing and efficient! Totally worth the investment :D
07 February 2014
No surprise anyone if I say that this product is great, if I get a pimple I put on the pink paste and the next day no longer exists, is almost magical. Yes it great because you don't want to have pimples. Buy yaaaaaaa.
No descubro nada nuevo si digo que este producto es buenísimo , si me sale un granito le pongo la pasta rosa y al día siguiente ya no existe, es casi mágico . Sí tienes espinillas es porque quieres . Cómpralo yaaaaaaa.
04 January 2014
I love this product. It does depend on the type of pimple, but even when they pimple have gone down, you should keep using it, it will help make the pimple disappear even quicker. I got a pimple a friday and saturday it was almost gone. Don't expect a miracle, but expect a product that works :)
10 December 2013
I really enjoy this product, it's in the name 'drying' because it does, i tend to use this product when i have a spot coming up and the buffering lotion for more noticeable acne. I clean face then apply this lotion, to me not only does this lotion cover up and build a shield over the effected spot it keeps the spot clean not letting no bacteria/dirt into the skin. I would 100% reccommend Mario Badescu products, I will be repurchasing more products from the range and the products i already have when they run out. Most importantly i have noticed a difference in my acne, making me feel more confident so thanks Mario Badescu.
07 December 2013
I only use this on larger spots or whiteheads as it is very drying, but it works well on them! It stops them from getting any worse. The pink patches seem to stay on my face all night, but I just wipe them off with a muslin cloth in the morning. It does smell a little but I don't notice the smell when I put it on my face.
29 October 2013
great product. if you use it when you feel the pimple coming out it may disapear in one night. Other times it takes more, but even so it is the strongest product I have ever used. The only problem, you sleep with pink "spots" on your face.
17 September 2013
Brilliant!!!! I got all face with acne which is so annoying, and I've tried a lot of different products, but they weren't work!!! Once by a chance to see a youtuber review, and she recommended this Drying Lotion, so I think I'll give it a try, so.....I found....all my acne gone after few days I had used it!!! They were gone just like magic!!!^^ But the only thing I don't like is the smell...it's quite strong though.
16 September 2013
This is a good product. It's effectiveness depends on the type of pimple, but it does do the job eventually in any case. In some cases it will work overnight, in other cases it will need 2-3 nights.
12 September 2013
This is Mario's star product and it really works on white heads. It is like a miracle overnight! Very drying. I'll definitely purchase it again and will recommend this to anyone.
02 September 2013
I love this product! It doesn't smell good, but it works!
01 September 2013
It really works wonders. (All skeptics can stop doubting and start believing) I have had problem skin since my early 20s, so around 5 years, and my skin have never looked as good as since I started using Mario Badescu products. The drying lotion 'kills' it before it even erupts. I also use the Acne wash daily, and it really do work.
20 August 2013
I have only recently bought this product but absolutely love it already. It is unlike any other spot treatment I have used. After 2 days my spots have not completely gone but I can tell they have definitely reduced in size and are less red. There is a slight tingling sensation when I use it and expect to sleep with pink dots on your face. The only minor downside I have is that its quite drying which makes putting on make up a bit of a pain but its all worth it. Im finally on the road to spot free skin.
31 July 2013
Brilliant product! As all other great reviews I would definitely recommend this product to everyone with any minor or major skin problems. I have been personally struggling with acne since age of 13 until now 21. I have tried many different treatments, spend way too much money on very unnecessary treatments.. I would just like to say thank you to beauty bay emails and suggestions what they would recommend me and than I came across this drying lotion! Its not a magic but does its job, and definitely see big results within 3 days. Had no problems applying it, easy to remove it(if you have normal/comb. skin like me) and best to use it overnight. My acne, pimples and blackheads nearly disappeared, small scarring is gone, only few bigger scars left! Thanks to this I don't have to wear any make up, but if I go out I use bb cream just to freshen up my look and cover any scarring left.Don't hesitate, buy it nowww :) I'm placing my next order on other products from Mario Badescu :)
19 July 2013
This is an amazing product I've ever used! I love the results and I love the smell. It really works for me. This is my second bottle so no wonder how good it is.
01 July 2013
Brilliant...Never fails me! Not the nicest of smells but if its getting rid of zits by the morning who cares!
30 June 2013
After just a couple of days of using this product. I am so impressed. It doesn't seem overly harsh on the skin yet it does the job. I have oily, acne prone skin and this product is wonderful. Dries up whiteheads overnight and dramatically reduces redness and size. It has also helped in my cystic acne, aiding it to heal faster and reduce the redness and the overall feel of a nasty bump emerging. I will definitely be repurchasing. I have just bought the buffering lotion. Looking forward to seeing how that works with deeper cystic acne. I was also very impressed with my next day free delivery!
29 June 2013
Great product! It does dry out pimples overnight but you have to be careful of not picking on them once they start itching as they dry up.
28 May 2013
It works but make my skin extremely itchy.
04 May 2013
This definitely is a miracle for upcoming pimples! What I love is that, if you feel a bump coming up and dab this on, it won't grow out to be one huge big pimple! It reduces it and makes it disappear before it completely errupts. I have to admit though that it does make the spots where I put this one slightly flaky if I put it on more than three times a week. Overall a definite favorite of mine!
23 April 2013
Sorry guys - this was a no from me! After all the amazing reviews I expected more but have tried on several different kinds of spots but still no positive results.
05 April 2013
Smells really bad, and it might sting a bit, but it works! No more pimples for me!! :)
28 February 2013
Very good product! A bit ugly with the pink though but it's overcomeable!
28 February 2013
Amazing product! Comes in a little glass bottle, pink liquid/powder that settles at the bottom and clear at the top. I apply this by putting a cotton bud straight down into the pink part then straight out and onto any spots (after cleansing, applying buffering lotion and after moisturiser). If the skin is broken it does sting a little but if not broken skin then I dont feel anything. You do have to be prepared for the pink blobs all over your face but my husband has never commented on it, the cat gives be a funny look! Also it doesnt rub off when in bed so treats spots all night only prob is I get up early to go see to my horse and litterally wake up get dressed - I have been caught walking around yard with pink spots still on! I have been using Mario Badescu products for just over a week now and my congested skin is now virtually clear apart from one blind spot! I cant remember when I last had clear skin!! Totally recommend these products and am happy with all I bought!
07 February 2013
This product is effective not only on pimples but on mosquito bites as well. I used it on my arms and legs to reduce the itching and swelling from the bites and the effect is immediate. The redness and scars are also visibly reduced in about four to five days. The only downside is that the pink hue of the product is difficult to wash off.
05 February 2013
I have only used it for one night and it does wonders! :) Love it!!!
29 January 2013
Sheer magic. Don't know why I ever bothered with anything else!
28 January 2013
this is amazing, really reduces signs of acne after a single use. Great for controlling outbreaks!
27 January 2013
I wish I'd found this product earlier! Does a great job in shortening the life of spots (some bumps even disappear completely) and doesn't dry out my skin too much. Been using this for three weeks now, have used next to none of it and my skin looks better than it has for months!
27 January 2013
Does wonders on drying out my pimples but its not a miracle product. It definitely speeds up the acne process though
26 January 2013
I have a love/hate relationship with this product.It does the job most of the times, but be careful and moisturize your skin because it can be a bit too drying
26 January 2013
Amazing product :) It dries up existing pimples and also help with exfoliation the next day. Sometimes I put a thin layer over a problem area with flaky skin and the next day a clarasonic will do the job. I just have a problem with the application, I feel like we're wasting so much product on the cottom bud!!!
25 January 2013
This actually works,I am so glad that I have found this,dont have acne anymore:))))
24 January 2013
I absolutely love it. I read a lot of reviews about it, and I decided to purchase it. Definitely a great product and you can see results after a few days. the product did not work like a magic and overnight the zit is gone! It took a several days... but definitely worth the money!
22 January 2013
This product is amazing, helps get rid of whiteheads overnight and also aids in getting rid of other spots on the skin. Been using this product since I was 15 and have always come back to it. It may seem expensive but it lasts for a very long time so well worth the money!!
12 January 2013
i think this is a very nice product! though if it's just teen acne you deal with, wich is what i do, i wouldn't recommend this.. but my boyfriend who is a bit older than me used it and it really helped!
11 January 2013
It's really great to use when you just feel the pimple is starting to grow. It works if the pimple is still red, but if it has already turned to white the product doesn't work. For me it's the best product that I've tried, I can't live without it.
11 December 2012
As many others said, it's not magic, but it certanly get its job done and drys pimples faster and more efficient than anything else I've ever tried. If you don't expect miracle and you know that there is no such thing as "everything will be fixed overnight", you may be pretty impressed by Drying lotion.
14 November 2012
Amazing! Cannot believe how quickly and how well this worked. 5 stars!!!
29 September 2012
This is a brilliant blemish treatment it dries horrible whiteheads overnight and delivers quick relief from small bumps aswell. Have never used anything better.
25 September 2012
This product was amazing! I have a normal skintype but I can't help my self to touch small breakouts, so I need something that saves me after I've done that. I've never used something that works this good, dryes out the pimples over night!
06 August 2012
I read so many good things about this product, but after trying it I feel really let down. It has actually made my skin break out even more than usual, as well as making my chin and jawline (where I get most of my spots) extremely itchy.
18 July 2012
Ussaly I feel that spot treatments block more than treat. This is not magic but it do help to dry my spots out and their "life" becomes much shorter.
12 July 2012
This product is amazing, usually my spot matures in 7 days, with this lotion, it just matures over one night and no redness. And back to normal skin after three nights
10 July 2012
Where would i be without it! This is fantastic for putting on a spot before it comes to the surface, as it sometimes can stop them in their tracks.
But it really works wonders at drying up a spot, makes sure you only dab it on the spot as it can be drying on normal skin.
01 July 2012
Excellent product. I have oily skin and get pimples as a result. This a great product for minimising them. a bit of a faff to put on having to use a cotton bud to dab it on.
Doesn't work on very dry skin though.
09 June 2012
it works! but only if the zit is 'mature' enough, if it hasn't 'surface' to a head its doesn't do anything, but once it does this thing does do a fab job.
for me its probably the best combat zit product, but then again, it doesn't always work.
01 June 2012
Unfortunately, this joins the long line of products that seem to work for everyone but me and my sensitive problem skin. If anything, I felt that it aggravated my skin and caused more pimples. :(
03 May 2012
Love this product!!!Every time when I feel that there is a pimple coming up I will put this on overnight for 2 nights as the pimple does not disappear in 1 night but I can really notice the difference.Normally my pimples will stay for more than 5 days but now they are almost gone within 3 days which is really great and I do not get an dried out skin from it!
19 April 2012
This didn't work for me. Made no difference, and ended up with really dry sections on my face :(.
29 March 2012
This definitely didn't get rid of my spots on it's own but it did bring them to the surface so that they could be, er, manually removed without leaving any scarring. I'm not sure if that's what it's meant to do but my skin does look clearer. Not exactly wonder stuff but better than anything else I've tried
23 March 2012
This didnt work for me :(
13 March 2012
Haven't ever found a better product that this for clearing up spots!
24 October 2011
I love this stuff! At first I was hesitant because I saw how it was supposed to be used and thought it was too much effort just to apply it.
Well, it works. It doesn't get rid of the pimple over night, but it does come pretty close. It depends on how big it is, but the next morning, it definitely swells down and gets less red. After a couple of days, it goe
22 September 2011
I love this <3
14 September 2011
This really does work! Don't have any problems with the pink residue as it has all pretty much worn off by the morning anyway.
06 September 2011
After trying loads of products this actually works. This is truly a life saver! My skin is blemish free and I have been confidently continuing it's use for a very long period of time. My skin is glowing and being a model I really couldn't work with bad skin so I can thoroughly recommend this to anyone.
04 August 2011
I would recommend Mario Badescu the drying lotion for anyone who is very self conscious about spots, because it really has made my skin 110% clearer than any prescribed creams, or natural spot relievers.
I applied the cream every night normally 2hours before i go to sleep; and always notice a difference in the morning its like magic. I'm so satisfied.
01 August 2011
Excellent put it on the spot over night and it dries it out the sulphur in the product is the key.
29 July 2011
It does work, but it really does dry out your skin, so you can't use it every day. It's great for the odd spot though.
29 July 2011
Been using this product long time now.Although I still get some blemishes I like using product, it keeps them at bay. I don't mind the pink colour, and find it washes off okay in morning, although most of it has gone by then anyway.
19 July 2011
This is one of the best spot treatments i've ever used. It significantly helped my spots overnight & reduced redness. The only negative is the pink is sometimes difficult to remove the next morning, even using a facial wash.
05 July 2011
I love love love this product. I tried it a while ago and it is the only thing that gets rid of my spots so ive started using it again and within literally a few days my skin looks clearer and i feel more confident :) would recommend to anyone
17 June 2011
This product did miracle on my boyfriend's back and chest, but the pink is hard to remove, even with a good soap.
15 June 2011
Thiss is a miracle worker!
01 June 2011
I've been using this drying lotion on my spots for about 2 months now and it really is the best spot treatment i've ever come across, however.
It is bright pink so you can only use it when you go to bed or if your on your own and it takes quite a few hours to really kick in, so using it an hour before a party doesn't really do much.
I still highly recommend!
01 June 2011
It is my must have spot treatment that really works and does what it suppose to do. It got rid of my small pimples over a night and reduced the redness significantly. I have tried so many acne treatments and this is the best one so far, which i can always rely on when I have breakouts.
06 March 2011
I absolutely love this product and would buy nothing else to get rid of annoying spots. As long as you dont mind pink dots on your face when you go to bed, I dont think ive bought anything better and although the bottle is small it does last a long time as you dont need to use a lot.
26 February 2011
It's not a one-night-miracle, but after 2-3 nights, the pimple is as good as gone. Also, the pimples where you apply it, don't get larger, which is good. The only thing I don't like is the pink residue is a bit hard to get away at the end and it really dries out that area. So I recommend using it only where really necessary!
01 February 2011
both me and my husband swaer by this lotion. It really works, either by drawing the spot to a head or by getting rid of it altogether and sometimes it can get rid of a spot overnight! I haven't found it particularly drying, but I use a healing skin oil overnight so that probably helps! It does smell really strong though!
01 February 2011
I found this product very useful. My only regret was that the liquid dried out near the end of my use, so I couldn´t use the product to it´s fullest. But it helped with my spots. But as it says it is a drying lotion, so be prepared of scabbing of the skin. But a very good product at removing blemishes fast and in a good way.
01 February 2011
I LOVE this product althought it dries out the pimples v.good the only disadvantage of this is that it leaves behind pink residue on the skin which takes alot of effort to take off and skin become v. dry
01 August 2010
I use this product when I have big breakouts on my skin. It really helps with reducing the size of a large break out. But I wouldn't suggest using it everyday as it is quite harsh on the skin. But well worth the money!
23 May 2010
I use this product every night, it helps clear my pimples super fast and I wouldn't know what to do without it :) If you have an unclear skin, it's worth trying! I use a good moisturizer before using this product and don't have any problems with the skin getting dry but this of course may be personal, you don't have to use this every day.
14 December 2009
I was very impressed with this product. it shrinks and drys pimples in half the time, drawing them up to a head. However too much use causes alot of scabbing and then it's hard to get moisture back into the affected area. My advice would be don't use it every night if your skin has dryer tendencies but alternate with something hydrating. Good product.
