My roommate happens to be a makeup artist and so I’m always in her room/bathroom stalking the products she has (with her present of course!). I stopped birth control back in March for many reasons after being on it for over 10 years. Growing up, I never had acne, however after stopping birth control… I now break out quite often. I’ve been trying to find different things to help my acne, whether it’s a new cleanser or a mask and I haven’t found anything that has truly helped until now.
My roommate let me use her Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and it helped so much that I went and bought one for myself. It’s not cheap but it’s not super pricey either. It costs around $17 for 1oz but I can see this stuff lasting for a long time as it’s just a spot treatment and not something you apply all over your face.
The Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot treatment. Formulated with salicylic acid, calamine and other quick-drying ingredients, this product will shrink ugly whiteheads virtually overnight while you sleep.
How To Use It & Does It Work?
To use it, you apply a dab of it directly on the whitehead. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. It’s important to also not shake the bottle. Looking at it, you get the urge to but don’t! Literally, I woke up the next morning and the whitehead was gone. I even used it on my fiancé and it worked for him as well. One of my favorite things is that it is cruelty free as well.
If you suffer from whiteheads, I definitely recommend the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion!
