Acne spots got you hiding your face? Think pink! To help treat unwelcomed acne, pimples and zits, the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion has been a cult favorite for years. The bubble gum pink liquid spot treatment has been a favorite for beauty lovers as well as celebrities. You heard it, even celebrities suffer from acne!
The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a spot surface blemish treatment meant to be used overnight. It is ideal for all skin types, contains salicylic acid to help exfoliate and reduce the appearance of blemishes; sulfur to help unclog pores; and zinc oxide to help absorb any excess oil to dry out the blemish. A 1fl.oz bottle will set you back around $17 and it is vegan and cruelty free. The actual product comes in liquid form with the pink sulfur liquid at the bottom and a clear liquid sitting on top. I know exactly what you’re thinking. Mix the liquids by shaking up the bottle. STOP! The liquids are supposed to be separated, so do not mix them. Just take a cotton swab, submerge it fully into the pink liquid at the bottom and dab directly onto your desired blemish. Let it dry overnight and wash it off in the morning to reveal a happier face.
So, who else swears by this pink liquid magic? Just some of today’s most trending young celebrities/influencers: Kylie Jenner, Lili Reinhart and Rose Huntington-Whiteley.
As one of the members of the Kardashian clan, Kylie has been using the product for years and even shared a nightly routine with her followers on Snapchat as she applied the drying lotion over her blemishes.
Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart has also been quite vocal on social media about her love for the blemish spot treatment and even posted some selfies of her with the iconic pink dot on her face.
Actress and beauty aficionado Rose Huntington-Whiteley also gives high praise to the product calling it “a legend” saying it is a frequent flyer in her skin care routine.
If these beauties regularly use this product maybe it really is one of the best kept beauty secrets to flawless skin? It’s refreshing to see such transparency with these influencers because celebrities, just like all of us, get acne too.
Like these on-screen darlings, our Glowish influencer Jasmine also suffers from the occasional zit and shares her honest 14-day review on the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Jasmine, like some of the celebrities, is a fan of the product and has been using it for years now. She believes it really helps her acne when it first appears and when it its on its last leg and about to pop. One aspect of the product she very much enjoys is how accessible it is. It can be found in many retailers, drugstores or high end stores It is accessible to everyone where you can pop into the store, pick up the product and then use it the same day. She notes that a bottle will usually last her about a year and for the price point and the amount of uses she gets, it is definitely worth the investment.
“I find myself really gravitating towards the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, especially when I’m super stressed … those are the times when I feel like I will get a lot of spots on my face and I’ll need additional help to help clarify the skin.”
Though the product has continued to work its magic on her skin, she doesn’t believe it works on every type of acne. With types of acne such as under the skin bumps or cystic acne, she doesn’t believe this product would be as effective.
