I just started using the Mario Badescu Drying lotion and I am very impressed. I've tried a couple other similar products but this stuff works the best. I am usually not acne prone, but during a certain time of the month, I break out a little around my chin. This stuff really zaps it--almost literally overnight. It's amazing. I've heard some others complain that it dries out your skin, so for people who already have dry skin-beware. I have combination skin and have not had any problems with it being too drying. Next up I will be purchasing the Mario Badescu Drying Cream. Have any of you tried it?
