Mario Badescu Drying Cream

Although I use Retin-A, I still get the occasional zit.  As such, I still need a product to spot treat these nasty little things.  After suffering from acne as a pre-teen, and getting breakouts every month as an adult, some of the best products I have found are from Mario Badescu.  I first got this as a sample when shopping at Ulta, and ended up buying the full size.  Mario Badescu has several acne products, including a drying lotion and this drying cream, both for spot treating.  My acne isn’t as bad as it used to be, so I no longer use the drying lotion.  But, I do keep a jar of this on hand.

This cream contains aloe to soothe, and has the added benefit of a slight tint, so it can conceal as it dries out your zit.  It’s too light for my skin tone, but I still love this stuff.  It has an almost earthy scent, which I have grown quite accustomed to.  The scent may bother some, but it is not fake or “perfumey” at all, just very natural.  Whenever I need to use this, I actually enjoy holding it up to my nose and smelling it.  Sad, huh?  To top it all off, this is very reasonably priced, so I will probably always keep a jar on hand.

Mario Badescu Drying Cream retails for $14.00 for 0.50 oz.
