Spots Be Gone!

Ingredient: Saw palmetto Product: Origins Spot Remover   I rarely get pimples and I’m thankful enough that I didn’t suffer from acne when I was a teenaged girl. Although sometimes, especially if it’s that time of the month, I get the occasional hormonal pimple. They aren’t bad though, they come in small and usually go away after a week or so.   There are some instances, however, when these small pimples leave a nasty mark on my face. I learned from a friend that I should use a spot corrector when I have these pimples so they won’t leave any mark after. I used to have The Body Shop’s tea tree spot corrector a few years back to treat the exact same issue.   I came across this product when I was shopping for the iconic Origins masks. I thought to myself, maybe I’ll throw in this small spot corrector in my cart. And I’m glad I did. I’ve used this twice since I bought it due to the aforementioned occasional pimples. I noticed that my pimple had left my face earlier than the usual duration. It went away after about 2 days; normally, they stay on my face for about a week or sometimes longer depending on the size of the zit.   This product is my go-to now when I have the once-a-month zit. Definitely recommend it to anyone experiencing zits too.

🐸Hey there ! It’s me again ! Today I want to talk about the Mario Badescu Drying lotion . I love this product . I have acne prone skin so I often find my self having unwanted zits . This product does a great job in drying them . Usually I would put this two nights in a row on the spot and by day 2 the zit would most likely be gone 🐸 🌈I’ve been using this for years . I was first introduced to it by going through Sephora’s website and looking for acne products. 🌈 I have combination skin but this product works for all skin types . The 3 main ingredients are 1️⃣ Salicylic Acid which exfoliates to help shed pore-clogging dead skin cells. 2️⃣Sulfur which purify pores and absorbs excess oil. And 3️⃣Calamine which delivers a cooling, soothing effect. I love this product and would totally recomend. Priced at $17 this is totally a steal . Most of Mario Badescu products are ! So funny story . My first bottle ever of this product I would shake so the pink in the bottom and the clear liquid would all mix up . Later I found out you aren’t supposed to do that . I apply this with a q-tip . So the correct way of applying this is sticking the q tip into the bottle letting it coat with the pink and then taking it out so it can soak with the clear liquid . Never shake the bottle ! 😂😂😂MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Pretty good for bigger zits

MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Although it takes a few nights to really calm a pimple down, I feel it helps the process move along faster. I didn’t notice any real difference in smaller pimples but when I had some that I could actually feel before they made an appearance, I would put some of this on and it helped. To use, you want to grab a q-tip and dip it all the way down into the pink substance on the bottom. Do not shake the bottle.

Does this product even need an introduction?! Aside from @mariobadescu’s popular rose water spray, this is probably the next best thing! The key ingredients of this spot treatment is salicylic acid, sulfur and calamine. SA helps exfoliate dead skin cells that causes clogged pores, while sulfur absorbs excess oil and calamine helps soothe irritated spots. Overall, what it essentially does is dry up your pimples and help reduce the size and inflammation. The pink sediment that consist of the key ingredients settles at the bottom of the bottle and is not meant to be shaken, so you need to dip a cotton swab into it. I use this every night and lightly dab it on any red spots/bumps that I have, which usually disappears by the next day. I also prefer this way more than pimple patches because the results are quicker. My only complain is that it can be quite messy and dipping the cotton swab can be a real struggle sometimes LOL. Other than that, I really like it and I highly recommend it! It’s also cheaper than other similar products and lasts an extremely long time, making it super worth it!

MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Key Ingredient list: . Isopropyl alcohol: This is a simple alcohol (vs fatty alcohol) which can dry out the skin in large concentration. . Calamine: Helps dry out pimples caused by excess oil faster and can also help soothe the skin from mild irritation. . Salicylic Acid: This is a BHA, which is a chemical exfoliator. It helps unclog your pores by penetrating into your pores to get rid of dead skin cells, bacteria, and grime. . Sulfur: Helps dry out the surface of your skin to help absorb excess oil. It also dries out dead skin cells to help unclog pores. . Zinc Oxide: It has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, helping to heal wounds. . Glycerin: This is a humectant which helps draw water from the air into your skin, keeping your skin hydrated. . Camphor: Has antibacterial and antifungal properties which helps heal pimples. . ✨Removing excess oil can help heal acne quicker. However, overdrying acne can also make it worse. I think @mariobadescu got their formula right with this spot treatment. They’ve used the right concentration of each “drying” ingredient so your acne does not get worse. I’ve never experienced worsened acne after applying this spot treatment. It truly dries up my acne overnight! My acne generally looks less inflamed or smaller the next day. They hardly ever become pus-filled the next day because the spot treatment dries them up. . There are two nit-pick cons to this spot treatment: . 1. You have to store the bottle vertically so that the layer of pink sediment remains on the bottom of the bottle (ie the good stuff). If you look closely at my picture, the solution is a cloudy pink because the bottle would not remain in a slanted position and kept dropping! When stored properly, you’ll see a distinct separation between the pink sediment layer and the clear solution. The pink sediment resettles once you store the bottle vertically again. . 2. You need to dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment, which settles on the bottom of the bottle. I am trying to imagine how I am going to fully use up all the pink sediment since the tip of my cotton swab does not even hit the bottom of the bottle.

These pads would be a great option for those with acne to use. But if you have sensitive skin like me, these probably wouldn’t work. These pads burned my skin and made my skin red. But if you don’t have sensitive skin, I would still only recommend you use these 1-3 times a week because they are VERY strong.

The BEST Acne Treatment!
The BEST Acne Treatment!
Why I Bought It: I usually don’t get breakout but all of a sudden I was getting acne so I wanted something to get rid of them fast. I saw that everyone was say thing this was a really good to get rid of your breakouts overnight so I decided to try it. My Experience: When I first open the bottle it smells pretty bad and honestly the smell lingers on my face. It did sting when I first applied it but once it dried the stinging went away. The second photo is before I tried it out and the third is two days later so it did take two nights for my pimple to go away but I’m not mad about that. I’d rather wait two night than wait a week (which is usually how long it would take my pimples to go away on their own). There is a little mark where my pimple used to be but that’s normal for my skin. Is It Worth It?: MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion I would say it is definitely worth it. A little goes a long way in my opinion. I didn’t give it the full five stars just because of the smell but other than that it worked amazing. If you’re looking for a acne treatment you should give this a try. @Ulta for $17
