Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Contents: 1oz or 30ml

According to Mario Badescu webpage:

The Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot treatment. Formulated with salicylic acid, calamine and other quick-drying ingredients, this product will shrink ugly whiteheads virtually overnight while you sleep. While other acne spot treatments can irritate and dry delicate or sensitive skin, this product is safe and effective for all skin types.

How to Use: Before bed, after cleansing, toning and moisturizing apply a dab of lotion directly on the whitehead using a cotton swab. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. DO NOT shake the bottle and apply only the pink sediment on the skin.

Beauty Tip: Great for back acne and breakouts on the chest. The Drying Lotion will also take the itch out of mosquito bites fast!

Ingredients: Isopropyl Alcohol,Deionized Water (Aqua), Calamine, Camphor, Colloidal Sulfur, Salicylic Acid,Glycerine, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Talc

My opinion:

I've been using this for several years (this is actually my 4th bottle), especially on cystic acne. It won't clear your face overnight, but it does speed up the clearing process.

It has always worked for me, until recently it has stopped working, and I'm now searching for a substitute....


  1. ive heard the mario badescu products works well for acne . i want to try it too but its too expensive for me.

  2. I've tried most of their product for acnes, and I've only repurchased the acne lotion, I think there are cheaper alternatives out there....
