I've been really impressed with this drying lotion. My husband and I have similar dry-ish, generally well-behaved skin that hasn't been too much trouble in adulthood. We both use it for occasional spots and have found it to more-or-less work over night on all but the biggest, angriest zit. And it works on those too, it just takes longer. Last night, I had some left over on the q-tip and smeared it around on my nose, thought better of it and wiped it off. My pores aren't huge, and I only had a few noticeable blackheads, but now I have none. I wouldn't do this regularly, it *is* drying, but what a nice surprise this morning!It's stinky, and as the name suggests, drying. But it's been a reliable companion in the bath cabinet and I won't be without it.

This works on the occasional huge cystic, headless zit I sometimes get when it's that time of the month. I find that his helps "draw" the head out, if it makes any sense. It doesn't sting, then again I never apply this on broken skin, and doesn't irritate the surrounding area. Some zit treatment creams have a tendency to really dry out the surrounding area, leaving me with flaky, patchy skin but miraculously the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion doesn't do that to me.I've been using this for years and it works very well for the husband and I, we always keep a bottle of this in our skincare cabinet as its a good treatment for big, headless zits. Don't expect a miracle to happen though, it usually takes around three days for the zit to surface and another one-two for it to dry completely but it is all worth it as you won't be left with a scar if you do not pick the zit and let it dry "naturally" with the Drying Lotion. :)

This works for me, with the occasional little white head or tidy red bump zit that I get - it reduces size and redness and the tingle upon application feels very clean. It works overnight for me. I use this in conjunction with CeraVe lotion for my monthly big breakout and that keeps it under control.However, I doubt this would have been as effective on my teenage skin with its cystic acne. If I had tried it then I probably would have been very upset (my skin was so bad I used to cry). The only thing that worked for that (for me!) was hormone regulation and consuming less animal products, it was never an issue with topical application of products, although I'm sure my swathes of foundation and concealer didn't make my skin any better.

I don't know how I feel about this product. If a pimple arises, I reach for this by default and it tingles depending on the type of spot that I have.If there's a small pimple i.e. an under the skin bump, the drying lotion does nothing. If it's a larger spot, maybe red with a head or a white head, this is good. The spot doesn't disappear but the redness decreases and sometimes I'll be left without a white head.I wouldn't buy it again in a hurry, but I haven't found any other spot treatment...

A product that completely failed. I used a few times and had high hopes due to the sulfur in it, but no improvement. What finalky worked to. Clear up my acne is fragrance free products, clay masks, honey and cinnamon masks, no dairy or peanuts.

I love this product. It shrinks most of my whiteheads overnight. I barely have some hormonal acne but when I do, I took a few days to disappear, but it gets the job done. I was impressed at first because it was really strong acne treatment for someone who needs its acne to go away asap. I gave it a 3 lippie because I noticed when I applied it overnight, the pink residue that was left on my face were falling apart and it starts to get into my eyes. I got an eye irritation afterwards. My eyes starts producing a lot of mucus every morning (where at times it felt like both of my eyelids were glued together) and it was horrible :( I stopped using it ever since but I really do like this product and I still wears it at times but I'll wipe it off before I go to bed.

I like this product because it actually does get rid of whiteheads overnight, but just the small ones. For big whiteheads, it made it extra ripe to pop the next day, which is good if your staying home, but if your going out then you will just have an open zit oozing juice out (sorry). For red pimples, it helps a bit. I can tell it helps it die down after about 2-3 days of using it. I don't have cystic acne, but I don't think this product would help it go away fast. I'm not really a fan of the texture, since when it dries it turns flaky and just falls everywhere if you're moving around. The pink stuff might rub off your pillow if your a messy sleeper. Also, I wish the bottle was at least 1 cm taller because I'm at the very bottom of it and a standard q-tip just barely reaches! Not too sure if I'll be repurchasing though... still on the hunt for a good pimple cream.
