Drying cream from Mario Badescu

An other review on a Mario Badescu's product... This one is to mean to help with underskin breakouts. It is part of the Acne Repair kit you can find where Mario Badescu is sold and on the brand website here.

What do I think about it? It is a consistent cream with an intense herbal smell. It is slightly tinted in beige or light brown which helps to conceal a little the pimple redness due to the inflammation. I apply it to all my breakout-prone areas in a very small amount because it dries out the skin so much. You have to be very careful to dab it only on imperfections. It gives a greyish cast to the skin right after application but it disappears after a couple of minutes. The active ingredients inside are mainly sulfur, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
I personally use it mornings on my pimples under my make-up. It does not interfer with makeup which is great!

Does it work? Yes on more time... It works great but perhaps a bit too much for some of you. Spots dry really fast and does not evolve in hideous cysts. The downside is that foundation will stick a little more to the dry patches and you will have to be more careful with application.Anyhow, I prefer dry patches to nasty volcanos on my chin :p.
It is safe for every skin type. It is the perfect targeted treatment but for a single daily application (do not use it twice)

Do I recommend it? Yes ... Apart from the herbal smell and the greyish cast, perfect problem solver for me!

11€ by HQHair or 10,50€ by Beautybay (online retailers). You can order on the brand website but be aware of the shipping charges :s

Thumbs up for this one too... I have two more stuffes from Mario Badescu to go through! One fights painful undere-surface pimples and the other blackheads and open pores!
Stay tune...

See ya :)

Interesting. But definitely something NOT to apply on the whole face I think.
