Celebrities And Supermodels Love This Miracle Acne-Clearing Lotionby | May 10, 2019
The skincare and beauty industry is thriving, and today, it’s a blessing and a curse at the same time. While it’s absolutely wonderful to have so many great products at your disposal, it is also a colossal challenge to find the one that’s right for you. With new brands cropping up every other day, not to discount their efficacy, the difficulty lies in navigating formulas that will drive away your skin-related woes. But when a brand has legions of fans that include A-list celebrities, beauty editors, supermodels, and bloggers you can be certain to have landed a gold-mine. Mario Badescu brought his European-style facials to New York in 1967, where in a two-bedroom apartment he set shop and his skincare line was born. Decades later, his brand continues to provide us with hero products that are largely reviewed and revered.
The Rosewater and Aloe Facial Spray has earned a cult-following and is considered the best facial mist and setting spray in the market, while the Vitamin C Serum with 7.5 percent Ascorbic Acid has garnered many fans owing to its effective brightening properties. Also worth a mention is the miraculous Anti-Acne Serum (with before-after pictures as proof on their Instagram page), and the time-tested Glycolic Acid Toner for its gentle yet potent exfoliating properties.
And then, there is Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion—the holy grail product that is popular for magically eliminating those pesky zits that have the tendency to creep up on us ever so often. The award-winning solution has championed a loyal army of celebrity fans for good measure. Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Lili Reinhart took to Instagram to declare their love for the humble product, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Culpo, Khloe Kardashian, and Lucy Hale labeled it as their go-to acne treatment in interviews. And here’s why this pint-sized bottle of pink liquid has found its way to the shelves of anyone and everyone who struggles with acne.
The spot solution acts as a potent drying agent for surface breakouts and works overnight to help them heal. It’s loaded with Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, and Zinc Oxide, which penetrate deep into congested pores to draw out grime and impurities, while anti-inflammatory Calamine actively works to soothe skin. Even if your pimples don’t disappear overnight, you can be certain that they will dramatically shrink. Our only piece of advice? No matter what else you do, resist the urge to shake the bottle. The clear liquid on top and the pink sediment at the bottom are intended to remain separated.
Although it is not a permanent fix for acne, and especially not recommended for cystic acne, Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion is definitely worth a try; as are these other highly-acclaimed, best-selling products.
