Not bad. Strong scent.

Not bad for drying pimples but also not a must-have for me. Strong medicinal scent that may be a little off-putting to some. Likely will not re-purchase once finished. Remember not to shake the bottle before use.

Just okay

Did not really like this product as it has alcohol in it and irritates my skin sometimes when it is sensitive. The powder also did not speed up the drying of my acne and blemishes very much. I think tea tree oil does the same thing for me. The alcohol in the bottle dried up even before I could finish using all the powder so it was quite a waste. Furthermore, when you Ong have abut of product left, it is difficult for q-tips to reach into the bottle. Makes it really troublesome to use.

Does what it claims

This product has been constantly raved online and thus i decided to get one for myself. It does what it claims to do and dries and flatten pimples overnight. However i personally do not like this product. It is way tooooo drying and causing flaky skin around the pimple area. It becomes very rough. The smell of sulfur is also very very strong with this product. When you apply this and go to bed some of the product will flake away as it dries and i do not know whether this affect the effectiveness. This product is good and delivers what it promised but i do not like it at all.

HOLY GRAIL!

Breakouts dry fast! It works best overnight. It has a strong scent (which I understand for drying products). Highly recommended for people who breakout a lot! I must say that most Mario Badescu products have saved my skin. Love this one.

My fave repurchase

started using this product in 2014.  highly recommend for oily and acne prone skin.  This is my 3rd purchase.  pricing is more competitive in the US and has the option of a plastic bottle.  I love buying this online for convenience

Mario Badescu

Love this product as it helps to dry up my pimples within 2-3 days. This is a must try product. Though there is a strong alcohol smell and sometimes it stings my pimples but it's manageable and last for a few seconds. After all this is a product that I will keep going back once it's running out.

Bye2 pimples

This is the best for zits adn acne prone skin. It dries the pimples while treats it. Its an effective products from Mario. I use this at night for treating my skin from acne. It's not that great for small bumps but superb for red pimples. Its reducing the redness too.

Awesome

have fairly run of the mill pimples - they appear close to that time of the month, some red, some with pus - all disgusting and annoying. I usually treat them with drug store treatments until I read the rave reviews for this stuff. I've been using it for 2 months with amazing results. Stubborn pimples clear in 2-3 days and I'm noticing a lot less redness too as they wither and die ( yay!). This stuff is so effective it's on my HG (holy grail) list and I will definitely repurchase when it runs out.
