Mario Badescu- Buffering Lotion


Hey all! Sorry for my lack of posts lately. With the move and my two jobs, I’ve been a busy bee!!! And you can just imagine what it has to my skin! Ugh, my face definitely shows the stress. I’ve been breaking out with cystic acne all over my face and I don;t mean one or two but 5-7 at a time. Especially on my chin. So I went to Ulta and decided I would give this a try. According to the website it states:


Specifically designed to treat large, deep, cystic acne, the buffering lotion covers large erupted areas for overall treatment. Formulated with nourishing B vitamins and amino acids for healthy skin as well as soothing anti-inflammatory herbal extracts to promote healing. Reduce cystic acne fast with this deep penetrating, fast absorbing formula.

HOW TO USE: Shake bottle until white sediment is completely dissolved, apply solution to areas of cystic breakout with clean fingertips. Use nightly on affected areas.

As for what it really does? Not much, at least for me. For some of the smaller nodules of cystic acne it seemed to heal them a little faster but as for the large ones it didn;t do a thing. Also as I continued to use it, it began to dry out the skin around each of my breakouts.  Overall this product just didn’t work for me not matter how much I wanted it to.


Have any of you ever tried this product? Did it work for you? Do you have any products recommendations for cystic acne breakouts?
