I'm blessed with great skin, except for this heinous mutant, reoccurring cystic zit that likes to form in the same spot on my chin. The kind you feel a'brewing and a'throbbing well before it rears its ugly headless head --- that sends you to the derm for an emergency shot of cortisone. Well, last time I felt that sucker a'brewing (it was going to be a whopper) it was a Saturday -- and I missed my window of opportunity at the derm. Well, IT WORKED! IT WORKED! I can't say how it works for multiple cystic zits/acne, but for one monster of a zit, this baby performed miraculously.

Now, the instructions say apply every other day. I did not heed them. Starting that Saturday, I applied this with a cotton pad about three times a day, then topped it off (when I was not in public) with Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (another must-have, erases regular zits overnight). By Sunday, the monster began to shrink. That Sunday, I continued with the same routine. By Monday, the mutant cyst was gone. Just a dry patch.

Could I have avoided the dry patch by following the instructions? Who cares! It only lasted another day and was easily covered up.

If you can relate to my story, I urge you to get this and the Drying Lotion (if you don't have it) NOW! A word about the bottle... this stuff pours out fast, I highly suggest a cotton pad or ball instead of using your finger. And it stings a little. Both really small prices to pay for complete cystic zit eradication. Go now!

I am 57 and have had bouts with acne since I was 20. For the past few years my skin was glowing to the point that I got egotistical about it, constantly looking in mirrors, admiring my glow, asking my husband, "have you ever seen such gorgeous skin? Check me out? Flawless, yes?" and then it happened...adult acne found me again. Probably God's way of giving me a dose of humility; in truth, I probably needed it. Anyway, cystic acne attacked and I didn't know what to do. I had lumps all over my chin, my cheeks and my forehead. I could not cover it up with makeup. Naturally I tried to squeeze them, thinking that somehow this time it would make them go away, but just like the other 900 times, nothing happened, they just got more red and swollen and just...would...not...go...away. It really made me feel terrible. Anyway, I proceeded to try everything under the sun to get rid of my acne, and finally stumbled upon Mario Bedescu. Perhaps God decided to cut me some slack and show me The Way to Clear Skin. And this product line really, really works. And it works fast. I use the Seaweed soap cleanser, the Drying Lotion and this stuff, the Buffering Lotion, which was most important to the whole process for me. The Buffering Lotion sinks deep into your skin and kills whatever bacteria it is that makes the cystic bumps form in the first place. It smooths the skin and they don't come back. If a little zit even thinks about growing, this product stops it in its tracks. I recently started using the Seaweed Night Cream, which is amazing--it does not clog your pores, it helps clear the acne (which is not always the case for a moisturizer) and keeps my skin nice and smooth and soft. So I have my beautiful skin back, but this time I am keeping my ego in check. And I stock up on Mario Badescu. Oh yes I do.

I normally don't write reviews, but I felt is was necessary for Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion.

A little about me: I'm 25 and didn't start getting cystic acne until I turned 21. I tried literally everything from home remedies to cortizone shots from dermatologist (which actually did the opposite for me, it blew up rather than go down for some reason). With that being said, in the past 4 years the ONLY thing that has worked is Gianvi (Yaz generic bc -tried another Yaz generic that didn't work) AND this stuff from heaven!

According to the bottle,it says put a few drops on every other night. Honestly, if I followed those directions, I doubt my results would be as good. I work from home, so thankfully this is easy for me to do. As soon as I feel a cyst coming, I cover it completely with MBBL. Every few hours, I reapply just to make sure it's still powerful enough to do it's magic. At night, I put some on the cyst and soak a tiny piece of cotton ball with the product & cover with a bandaid overnight. The only downside to this is it does leave your skin a little flaky. HOWEVER... I would much rather have a little flaky skin in one little area, then wind up with a huge cyst that will be vacationing on my cheek for the next few months! I usually put it on even small pimples too and follow the same procedure to make sure it goes away asap!

Oh, and word of advice I feel is ABSOLUTELY necessary for anyone with cystic acne... Do NOT.. I repeat, do NOT pick at your cyst whatsoever. I have been left with hideous deep, red scars on both of my cheeks and feeling extremely regretful. It's just not worth it & if this is an ongoing situation, it's just going to keep coming back.

This product is honestly a lifesaver for me & would recommend it to anyone! I'm normally not the one to spend this amount of money for a tiny amount of product, but it works + goes a long way!

Good luck everyone, hope this review helped! xox

I am over 50. I have had trouble with cystic acne and breakouts all my life. This is the first product I have ever used that dealt with the cystic kind. I put it on when I can feel it developing the night before, and by morning, it is gone. It has changed my life.
