Love this product, a little goes a long way and the bottle lasts ages. I shake the bottle and put directly on my breakouts, it instantly dries them up without causing any other damage and also stop new spots appearing or existing ones getting worse. Great product I would be lost without it.

This is my new fave spot treatment. I have moderate, cystic acne, and have previously tried the drying lotion, which didn't do much for my skin, apart from drying it out. I read that the buffering lotion is actually better for cystic acne, and decided to try it out because of the rave reviews on here.

At first, I was a little confused as how to apply it, as the Mario Badescu …

I first tried this product because I heard zinc was good for cystic acne. I've since gone through two bottles (a few years apart), but I don't think I'll repurchase. It just doesn't do enough--I'm having much better luck with liquid exfoliants. If you're interested in trying it, here's what to know. The zinc (I assume) settles at the bottom, so you need to shake …Read more

When I first tried this product, I wasn't impressed, but I actually have hopes for it now. I'm 27 years old and acne has decided to take over my face again. Cysts and white heads. Nothing seemed to work on getting my face back to being clear again. I've seen nothing but amazing reviews on this product so I didn't waste any time getting it. I followed the instructions on the …Read more

I had been suffering from severe adult acne (hormonal, cystic) and researched a couple of products that could help and came across this little bottle. Though the Drying Lotion from Mario Badescu is raved about, I'm surprised this isn't even more so! Dabbing a little of this on with a cotton swab over several cystic acne breakouts and the next morning they're severely lessened and …Read more

I always have this in my cabinet. I don't need it every day, but it is very effective at resolving small bumps and minor breakouts, stopping them in their tracks without irritation. Price is very reasonable, and lasts a long time when tightly capped. Really excellent, unique product that does what it promises.

This stuff is magic. I first bought the infamous drying lotion for my cystic acne that I've had since I was a teen. I used it on a stress breakout and it didn't seem to help the deep pulsating painful bumps, as I figured nothing would-this has always been my fight with acne. I went to ulta to see if I could find anything else to help with a new planet trying to block one of my nostrils …Read more

I've purchased this along with many others from MB countless times, and this is a must. I wear this every night and day. Under my sulfur treatment every morning, and under my makeup every morning. greatly reduces the pain of the cystic acne.

I've only been using this for 3-4 months, but can't imagine being without it in future. Initially, I really disliked the runny texture and thought it was awkward to apply, however, now that I've got the hang of it, it's easy to apply, though it does take some getting used to. I get very isolated hormonal breakouts and this has helped clear them very, very fast. Usually …Read more
