Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have! my go to product for blind pimples, it quickly reduces redness and starts healing from the inside. I also keep one in my travelling toiletry bag so I never leave home without it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't live up to the hype! I never write reviews, but I wanted to say that while this may work for most - it certainly did not work for me. I purchased four Mario Badescu items in the hope that it would solve my skin dilemma, but I honestly believe it made no difference whatsoever. I am actually really confused as to why so many people love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good I do like this product, however if you are tossing up between the drying lotion and this, choose the drying lotion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% worth trying I saw a website raving about this for cystic acne and figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a go. It's obviously not a miracle cure but it really does reduce and clear cysts so much faster and with far less scarring. It has a strong scent and is fairly drying so you need to be diligent with moisturizing but it lasts such a long time and works so well that it's definitely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really works I am a big fan of the Mario Badescu drying lotion so I was keen to try this for under the surface blemishes. After one use, my pimple had visibly reduced and continued to do so as I kept using is consistently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feeling disappointed Of course I got my hopes up after reading positive reviews for this product, but after using it for over two weeks now I'm just left feeling disappointed. It's worked for so many people so I'd still recommend it but it seems to delay my cysts for a day or two and then it just stops working. I've only successfully used it on two spots and I'm currently dealing with major cystic breakouts and all this is doing is drying out my skin. I've tried so many products for cystic acne and now I'm just frustrated and ready to try accutane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and Effective Have used this product for about a week now- VERY IMPRESSED! I have bad cystic acne along my jaw/cheeks and this works extremely well - no other products have worked like this. You can tell it's REALLY strong (which is good) but it is also really drying. I never have dry skin, but my affected acne areas are now very dry (which is not a bad thing- feels as though the skin is renewing itself). Definitely recommend if you're suffering from deep cystic acne- this stuff works.
