I have wanted this for ages but never purchased it because I didn't believe the hype. I got it in a box set this week and have tried it on a few spots. All of them reduced by at least 50% by the morning. I am seriously impressed.
The downside (as it says on the bottle) is it leaves your skin dry like paper. I needed to add a really rich moisturiser this morning. Additionally the smell is really strong and not in a good way! :(
But, if anything helps with my spots, its gets 5 stars!

This is the BEST drying lotion out there. I used this when I’m breaking out during that time of the month. I use this at night before I go to sleep with a cotton bud, I cover the whole spot/blemish & it will dry out the spot & make it smaller. I have gone through so many bottles of this & will never use anything else! Highly recommend!!

Classic cult beauty product. Worth the money though I would say; worth the hype! This is absolutely the best spot treatment I have ever used. Overnight my pimple either completely disappeared or seriously reduced the redness and swelling. I bought it on beauty bay and that is where I buy all my mario badescu products.. I apply it with a cotton bud, dipping it through the liquid into the lotion. DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE! If you do, just leave it upright to settle but I find after it is shaken several times it becomes less available. I have been using it for just under a year and I am on my second bottle. Using it almost every day it has lasted me over 6 months so it really does last. Everyone should try it! . Although, I do find that I have to be careful because if I go too crazy, I can dry out my skin and then I have a whole different issue on my hands...

Amazing product, can feel a sting when applying it but next morning my spot/s are basically gone sometimes needs two nights but in general it’s great. It’s hard not to shake the bottle like it recommends but not sure how that effects it still working good. Can make the skin of the spot a little flakey but worth it! Just exfoliate.

This is my number 1 spot treatment. Its simple to use, you put a Q tip in the solution (make sure you don't mix it) and then put it directly onto the spot and leave it on overnight. Sometimes for angrier spots it does take a couple of uses. It helps to dry the spot and makes sure there are no scares left.

I got this lotion as a present and i do have to say it does work. You put a cotton wool bud in the lotion and then dab it on the spot. It does dry the spot up and can leave a few dry patches however, i would prefer this then a giant red spot! I would just say use it at night and not in the day becaue i have used it in the day when i havent left the house and it does seem to flake away and not work as well.

✨Three words - you need this!! - if you have a really bad breakout the night before the morning after! I honestly cannot get over how one minute you can have the angriest, biggest spot on your face, apply this, the morning after it is practically gone! Don’t mix the solution and apply the sediment with a Q Tip, allow to dry and slip away into the land of nod. It doesn’t dry of the rest of your skin out and the salicylic acid and calamine help to soothe the skin. This is perfect for if you have something going on the following day and you don’t want to have a spot on your mind! Excellent buy!
