Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion

Recommended Posts

Does this work for cystic acne?   Anyone used it?   I seen reviews on amazon that says it works but on makeupalley many mention it doesn't. They say its a small bottle and its very weird to put on the pimples. Does it work for inflamed pimple cysts?



I seen someone mentioned it works for cysts that hasn't been raised yet but what about cystic acne pimples? Someone mentioned the drying lotion is for small or regular pimples but the buffering lotion works for those nasty inflamed cysts.



But one review from amazon with a lot of likes mentioned it doesn't work for real cystic pimples as he/she said others who said it works for their cystic acne don't truly have cystic acne.

I know my reply is a little on the late side for this thread but...


I have been using Mario Badescu products since I was 16! It got me through my awkward teen acne years and way beyond!  The buffering lotion is great for cystic acne and regular acne.  You can use it on a spot anywhere on your body as well as your face.  I noticed that it works a little faster on "bacne" then on my face but it will heal a cystic pimple in 2-3 days without leaving a scar! Its also great for clearing up blackheads on my nose. I always have this product at home.

I don't get cystic pimples often, but when I do I swear by the Buffering Lotion. It also works well on my normal break outs (I really only get cystic or bad breakouts 4-8 times a year, usually coincides with being on Prednisone). The only thing is when I first apply it, if my husband is home he complains of the smell. The last bottle I bought says to apply it every other day at night, but I ignore that - go at your risk. If it's bad, I apply once or twice a day and my skin is moderately sensitive. It doesn't dry out my skin as much as benzoyl peroxide.

    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
