The Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot treatment.

Additional Information

Mario Badescu's best seller, Drying Lotion is an excellent spot treatment made with a blend of calamine and salicylic acid to clear up and soothe unsightly whiteheads overnight. A dab of this lotion will heal and dry pimples quickly. Adored by celebrities from Hollywood to London-town, it's no wonder this overnight treatment has become world famous.

Before bed (after cleansing, toning, and moisturizing) dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Apply a dab of this lotion directly on the whitehead. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. DO NOT shake the bottle; if contents get shaken during packing and delivery, place the bottle on a flat surface until the layers separate and the pink sediment rests on the bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected... I bought this over 6 months ago after reading all the amazing reviews and seeing the results in my friends. However, I found that it didn't have the effect that I was expecting. It takes multiple applications for it to work, and sometimes I don't see results. I think that this is more suitable for people who have larger breakouts as they didn't work for most of mine as they were under the surface of the skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made a huge difference! I bought this product a few weeks ago and it has definitely helped with problem breakouts - especially catching them before they full appear. You can feel it working which I like but does have quite a strong smell which doesn't bother me but may be an issue for others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It actually works I was a little sceptical about this product at first, but I break out a little bit on my chin from resting it on my hands at work. I got ahuge pimple on my chin and I was like "nope, you're not welcome" so I decided to buy this, and after 2 nights of wearing it, my pimples are reduced to nothing! it stings abit when you first put it on, but its an antiseptic so it burns like detol...which is fine. I love this :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Product you can use every night! My friend recommended and raved about it and since i struggle with acne I thought why not give it go. I really love it! It greatly helps reduce redness and the size of the acne. For me, it does not completely get rid of them but it really does help reduce the appearance of it which is amazing! It does say to use it when you sleep and if you sleep on your side you will notice that it does rub off quite easily however it does not leave any type of stains on your pillow case. This does mean that if you have a rather nasty pimple you want to really let the product work on you during the night, make sure that part of your head is not lying on the pillow to reduce the risk of the product rubbing off. It lasts for a while and compared to a lot of other acne products its really inexpensive. Just make sure in the morning you apply a moisturizer just to hydrate your skin again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Burns This works good, even if you only have it on for a few hours before you have to go out. It clears larger pimples especially before they surface, and doesn't leave the skin dry if you moisturise properly before hand. However when applied to my face it usually burns really bad for about a minute before it goes away. After that it feels like nothing, and isn't a turn off for me, but it might be too much for someone with more sensitive skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I have been suffering from mild acne for at least 4 years, I read review after review and they all seemed to be telling me how great this product was. I was so excited to use it! However, I saw no improvement in my skin. My pimples still looked the same as they did the night before when I washed the product off the next day. I am so disappointed and am yet to find a product that will help my acne go away.

I'm almost finished my bottle but have a little left and am struggling to get the last bit out of the bottle. Any ideas on how I can use every last drop of this?! 

Asked by: jskasav
maybe you could transfer it into another bottle. Just shake up the product first, put it in a container then wait for it to settle. Should work fine.

Is this better than the EradiKate Acne Treatment? :)

Asked by: Superstar
Eradi-Kate is 100% better in my opinion. Bottle lasts much longer as well.

How much salicylic acid is in this? 2%?

Asked by: NinaM

Will this help clear up those little pimple bumps as I get them across my forehead and chin. Also will it work on blind pimples?
