Mario Badescu Drying Cream.

Lately I have had some pretty bad spots on my skin. I have never had bad skin so I was pretty upset when they suddenly popped up all over my face. I needed a miracle cure. I decided to head into my local Kit Cosmetics store and after a consultation I picked myself up some Mario Badescu Drying Cream, and I am so happy that I did!

What they say:
Acne cream that conceals! Drying Cream is an effective treatment to dry up small under the surface bumps and pimples. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control. Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples.

How I use my Mario Badescu Drying Cream:
Day: I use it as recommended by Mario Badescu; after moisturiser, before make-up.

Night: I first apply on pimples or area of concern by dabbing with fingertips until cream blends into the skin and becomes transparent. I then apply moisturiser on top.

Always apply sparingly.

  • My skin immediately felt relief.
  • You can wear it under makeup and it is untraceable.
  • Really helps draw out blind pimples.
  • Hugely speeds up the healing process of pimples and breakouts.

  • The packaging. - 1. I would much prefer that this product came in a tube. I feel that the fact that it is exposed to air every time I open it means it is going to expire quicker than in a tube and - 2. It is not as hygienic as it could be.

Having said this, the packaging is in no way ever going to stop me from repurchasing this product, just o yourself a favour and use a clean cotton bud or spatula to remove your desired amount of product as to not contaminate the cream; you are using it to treat your skin after all!

  1. Oh my god I need this in my life! I have such a problem with under the skin lumps/spots which sit there for ages and ages deciding on what they want to do! It's so frustrating! I am definitely going to hunt this down, thank you so much for sharing! xxx

  2. I had a huge undersurface pimple and this cream helped it heal twice as fast as anything I have ever used before.

    Glad I could help! Be sure to let me know hoe you go.
