Product Rave: Mario Badescu drying cream

19 Oct

This doggone Mario Badescu Drying Cream has been the answer to my puberty aged like break outs! I’m a woman of a certain age and have no clue why I must be subjected to  pimples! At any rate, I purchased this back when it was on sale on Hautelook. I thought if I hated it, its not like it was a huge investment. Welp, I love it! I remove all make up, wash my face and pat dry with a towel. I follow with my moisturizer and then take a q-tip and apply where ever I have a blemish. Seriously within a period of 24 hours it is significantly reduced. By day two, almost completely gone. And the price? $14 at regular price, you can’t beat it. Besides, it will take you MONTHS to actually even get half way through this container. Definitely recession proof. The only draw back is perhaps the smell. It does have a lingering sulfur smell, which doesn’t bother me at all, but may annoy some.

Many people know Mario for his Mario Badescu Drying Lotion , which is also very effective. I have used it several times in the past, but the last bottle my cat played soccer with it and I ended up cleaning the broken glass off he floor.

What Mario says:

Conceal and heal pimples day or night with our blend-able, invisible, soothing acne treatment designed for bumpy under-skin acne or for on-the-spot, quick drying of open, erupted zits. Super-concentrated formula. A little goes a long, long way. Great to use as a barrier between your blemish and your makeup.How to use: Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before makeup.


I personally only wear it at night. I can’t comment on how it would work in the day. It does claim to conceal, but I’d say not on this brown girl.Unless I am going for the whole beetle juice look. 🙂
