Happy hump day everyone, we are half way to the weekend! Today I’ll be sharing with you a product I couldn’t wait to talk about. I’ve waited a few weeks because I wanted to test it out and give it time. If you are someone who suffers from acne, whether it be from your period, or just random breakouts then this is a product you should own!
A couple weeks ago Nordstrom was having their anniversary sale. On top of that I received a $10 note for joining the rewards program. I decided I would spend it on something useful. So for $7 I ended up getting the Mario Badescu Drying lotion. It’s originally $17 which isn’t expensive at all for such a must have!
What it is: Just one drop of this world-famous Drying Lotion on a surface pimple or whitehead will heal and dry a zit virtually overnight.
Who it’s for: Suitable for all skin types.
What it does: This best-selling, concentrated formulation of calamine, salicylic acid and quick-acting acne-zapping ingredients should be part of everyone’s clear-skin arsenal.
How to use: At night after washing your face, apply a dab of lotion directly on the whitehead using a q-tip. 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.
Other instructions: When applying this dip the q-tip all the way to the bottom into the pink sediment. Pull the q-tip out and apply to the face like you would for a spot treatment. Once that is done you will have little pink dots all over your face but they dry pretty quickly. Come morning the pink spots will be gone (sometimes it leaves a little residue but it washes right off) and so will your pimples!

Obviously I read the reviews on the drying lotion because I was curious as to what people thought. For some it didn’t work, but for others they swear by it. I decided to try it out for myself and it does work (as you can see from the photo). I will say it doesn’t get rid of EVERY pimple but for the most part it eliminates the ones coming up, and any other whiteheads you may have. In that photo my skin was really bumpy and textured which only happens every now and then. Luckily with the drying lotion I woke up to a clear face again with the exception of three little bumps.
On the bottle it states that its formulated for troubled skin. It works to effectively dry out whiteheads and draw out pore-clogging impurities. Which for me it does just that! I use the drying lotion a few times a week when I notice pimples starting to come up and to draw out clogged pores. This product isn’t guaranteed to work for everybody because every skin type is different but this is definitely a product worth trying out!
I hope you enjoyed this post and until next time xoxo
