Ms

I use this whenever I have any pimples. Dab it on the affected area at night and the next day the pimple would have shrank. It's really effective and just a small amount is needed. I find that it really helps to reduce the pimples and somehow makes it disappear in a few days. Definitely recommend it

Does what is says

This buffering lotion really does what is says to calm down the red painful pimples. Many times I can see visible results overnight. Even though the bottle looks small, there is no way to use it up if you only suffer from occasional breakouts. I have used it for half a year and the bottle is still almost full!

Your BFF for Acne Skin

My hyperthyroid condition causes me to have outbreaks on and off and sometimes it gets so bad that some of the zits grows out of control (i.e. bigger, red and painful). The buffering lotion has worked perfectly for me and it is my new BFF whenever there are areas on my face that has deep comedones surfaces (whiteheads that comes out like a string when it is squeezed) or when big and unsightly acne appears after burning several days of midnight oil. It can only be used for that period of time and re-used when the condition reappears again as it is a product that dries your acne. Other areas on your face without such condition should not be applied on.

My must have acne spot treatment!

I apply this on my acne spots, particularly those without a head. It really speeds up the healing process and it dries up the acne spot. I recommend this product for people with big, painful acne. I use it twice a day on clean face whenever I have any spots I want to get rid of.

Great for cysts!

I had bad breakouts on my cheeks because I experimented with taking evening primrose oil supplements. I've been using this lotion for a week and it got rid of 3 cysts, leaving just 1 which is slowly also reducing in size. I heard it works best on newly-formed cysts, but I used it on cysts that were 3 days old and it still worked better than anything I have ever tried. I dabbed some on 2 bumps on my chin that could potentially develop into cysts and they were gone in 3 nights. Love this.

i THINK it works?

This product seems to work on me in the sense that my blemishes and cystic acne reduce in size and redness the next morning upon waking up. However, it has a very strong alcohol scent which may be off-putting to some. Then again, my skin is rather problematic so I trust that this product is one that would be effective on most users!

Buffering Lotion

I really love this buffering lotion. I use it daily, at least twice. It is really good for frequent breakouts like my face. It really reduces redness within minutes and the size of the pimples/acne. New pimples will disappear after a day using this, It is costly but worth it. Currently, I'm at my third bottle :)

MIND-BLOWING TRUST ME!!!

Let me start by saying that I NEVER write reviews. But I feel compelled to write one for this item because it actually works! And I hope someone suffering from acne (like me) will benefit from this! So, I started experiencing hormonal acne since 2 months ago. Added with mounting stress, I had awful bumps along my jawline, neck and chest. Each bump would last for weeks! Inflammed and nothing would work on it. Of course it left hyperpigmented scars to remind me of the ordeal! I browsed through the internet in desperation and somehow came across reviews on MB products. I went to their website and did the online skin test and was recommended a few products. I decided to buy the Drying Lotion (for surfaced zits with heads) and Buffering Lotion (for cystic, under-the-skin bumps). I applied the Buffering Lotion nightly (although the instruction said every other night, I was desperate!). And after 2-3 applications, VOILA! The bumps shrunk tremendously in size! I was amazed! And so grateful that I took the chance to purchase it after reading the reviews! The Drying Lotion works well on surfaced zits, not on those cystic acne bumps. Surfaced zits come to a head after 1-2 applications and they disappear without leaving a scar (provided you don't pick on them!). The items come in small sizes but oh so worth every cent. If you're an acne sufferer, you know what I mean. I hope this review helps someone out there just like how so many reviews helped in convincing me to make this purchase. I'm a MB fan, now and forever ! Can't wait to purchase the other recommended items ! AND I'm glad Sephora has this life-saving skincare line! xx

On the fence about this product!

The smell of this is so strong of alcohol! I felt like it wouldnt be good for my skin because the smell of it is so strong i felt like it would dry it out! But it doesnt hurt or anything, and i've been using this for the past week.. I havent noticed any new breakouts but the ones i had have only slowly started disappearing, its not a fast acting product but maybe paired with the drying lotion it would be more effective.

Good stuff

This is a must have. I have oily skin and have suffered from occasional breakouts. This lotion really helps to treat and dries up the small pimples and bigger ones too. Apply a little will be sufficient.
