Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Review

After years of hearing great things about the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, I finally bit the bullet and bought it for myself on ebay.   It was a little cheaper than in the stores and I was slightly unsure if it would work or not but I decided $17 was worth it to try to do the impossible- clear up a blemish overnight and be perfect the next day.   

The product arrived direct from the company (I didn't realize when I bought it that it was from them) and they included samples and trial size face stuff that I have yet to try but oh so fun to get!   This is the only product I have ever received that says NOT to mix the two substances- see the picture has yellow and pink stuff in the bottle?

The top is a liquid that reminds me of nail polish remover and the bottom is a calamine lotion type sediment.   The way it works is you dip a cotton swab (or tiny brush which is how I do it) straight into the bottle WITHOUT shaking it, touch the bottom and pull it straight back out and apply it to your blemish.   People have warned online in reviews not to shake it or you will ruin it, but common sense seems to indicate that it could withstand some movement since it was shipped to me and once the products settle and separated it was just fine.

The stuff works.   I have sensitive skin that reacts very intensely to anything harsh, but I dab the pink magic on any spots that are on my face and the next day they are close to gone if not completely vanished!   The only negative for me is that on a few spots it has left my skin a little red but concealer works to cover it.   It smells like paint thinner, but wow am I glad I tried it finally.

I know it says on their directions not to rub it onto your skin after you've applied it, but a few times now I've dabbed it on in the morning before I put on my makeup and let it dry a bit, then rubbed it gently and put my makeup on over it, and it has helped prevent issues during the day on areas that could have gotten pretty bad otherwise.  

Anyway, the reason I am posting this is because they emailed me a promo for whats included when you buy a product, and it shows the skin care set and samples I received, so I wanted to do this post and share the product and let you know about it and that I think it works.   I am doing ok in the skin department right now so I haven't tried the rest of the items they sent me with my order yet, but eventually I will get around to it and I will do a follow up post!   I got free shipping buying through Ebay, and I didn't use the promo code but I got the free gift as well as the three samples although I didn't get to choose them... not too bad though!   http://www.mariobadescu.com/drying-lotion
