I have used products in the MB line for months now and have tried various products including the buffering lotion, silver powder, healing powder, drying mask, special healing cream, and of course the drying lotion. Out of all of them, I like the drying lotion best and reach for it most often over the rest of the MB line that I own. As others have stated, it is best used in the evening, since it is not formulated to work with makeup. Apply with cotton swab and dab on each pimple until coated in "pink," and let dry. Typically the pimple(s) are greatly reduced by morning, if not gone, which is why I love this product. For an acne treatment intended for evening use, this is the best I have found. Kate Sommerville makes a similar product, but it did not work nearly as well, so I would skip that one if you were thinking of going with that one instead.

Please note that this product does not intend to clear up stubborn cystic acne. MB does not use a one-size-fits-all approach to treating acne, since there are several types of acne that can form on the face. Rather, they have developed acne specific products, targeting the actual acne you are afflicted with. If you have cystic acne troubles, use the buffering lotion, which is formulated to help reduce cystic acne. Their website actually has an acne guide explaining each type of acne and how to treat it with their products, which is worth checking into. Since MB has many product offerings, I suggest completing their skin analysis online and let them send you free samples of what they believe will work for you from their product line.

I have been a fan of Mario Badescu for a few years now. I do find that his lotions are great for sensitive, acne prone skin like mine. I had always been to dermatologists, wore little face make-up and regularly applied expensive topical creams impatiently awaiting results. When someone recommended his drying lotion, I was skeptical. NEVER has anything, not requiring a prescription, worked for me in the past. I bought it at a trade show and was instantly hooked! There's no need to apply it all over the face, just the inflamed area. If you apply to fresh acne (I do not recommend applying when it's already in the drying process, you'll risk flaking) your blemish will be gone in just a couple days. Improving atleast 50% in just the first day alone! I'm just ordering my 3rd bottle now. Oh and DO NOT SHAKE!

I am 30 and I get the occasional breakout from stress and hormones. This stuff smells funny, like old-school Clearasil, but it really does work overnight. It took away the redness and shrunk the pimples I had. I will never go back to using anything else.

Really does work, quit amazing. Doesn't work as well on a cystic pimple, but for sure on the little ones.

I have acne that stays beneath the skin and doesn't come to a head. If I put some of this stuff on the area a few nights in a row..it goes away! I LOVE this stuff. <3

I did not purchase this on Amazon, but I was looking through the other Badescu products and thought I should review this one, since I LOVE IT SO MUCH! I read about it in an article on The Huffington Post and since I've tried and am willing to try anything for my hormonal chin breakouts- I went to Ulta and bought it. It does exactly what it is supposed it. If I get any acne, at all, it's gone (COMPLETELY GONE) in two days. The redness subsides over night and it does not make my overly sensitive and insanely dry skin, flakey.

I'm a 24 year old girl with dry and sensitive skin, who gets hormonal breakouts. I can literally put my pimples on a calendar. This stuff works, period.
