This best selling product has been raved about by celebs and beauty bloggers alike, but does it really live up to its promise? Here's a review :)
The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a topical acne spot treatment for clearing stubborn and unsightly not to mention, painful whiteheads overnight. I have been experiencing scattered breakouts in my forehead and right cheek lately (4 red & juicy zits to be exact) so I was curious if this product is better than what I have been using (Benzac, Differin and The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blemish stick - which doesn't work fast enough for me anymore).
Ingredients include Isopropyl Alcohol, Deionized water (Aqua), Calamine, Camphor, Colloidal Sulfur, Salicylic Acid, Glycerine, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Oxide & Talc
PRICE: Php 1095 (approx. $24) at Rustan's Essenses
REPURCHASE PROBABILITY: slim to never (it is a generous bottle)
VERDICT: The name says it all, it is a DRYING LOTION, its super effective in drying that even the skin surrounding the whitehead also dries up. It is a little harsh for me but if you looking for a fast acting, result oriented, zit zapping product, this might be worth a try if you're willing to splurge. If you'd rather save money, I suggest you go with Benzac or Differin. :)
upon checkout, SA gave me two free samples of the Seaweed Cleansing Lotion which made me happy because I wanted to try it. :)
It's alcohol free and suitable for combination, dry and sensitive skin types. I've only used it once so I can't really tell if its worth buying the full sized bottle.
This was a part of a haul I did last weekend, please bear with my slow updating, summertime is a busy season for me. I promise to review everything soon!
