Acne cream that conceals! This Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples.

Additional Information

An effective treatment to dry up small under-surface blemishes that appear as raised bumps in oily areas of skin. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control.
Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before make-up.

Drying Cream is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked! Used this cream overnight and it smoothed out the bumpy little zits in my skin. I've loved all the Mario Basdescu products I've tried so far, however I wish the foil seals were less messy when opening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I brought this after reading the reviews online. After applying for the first time I didn’t notice great results on a massive pimple, but after using for a couple of days went down so quickly it almost disappeared! Would purchase again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product but what’s that misleading packaging? People rave about this product, as it is also affordable, of course i had to try it. Honestly I will most likely purchase again however today I made a discovery that actually made me really angry and i feel the need to share. One of the benefits of this product is good size for good price. So I’m half way through and notice suddenly that i have reached the bottom. But how is that possible, I’m only half way through? Well guess what, they make a nice big package and then insert a fake base so the jar looks fuller and bigger. And honestly I did not expect that. Just make a smaller jar if you don’t want to fill it with product! The product itself is just ok. I think it is one of these products that you are not really sure if it does something or perhaps it is just the fact that once you put it on you feel like at leat you are doing something and you are less likely to pick at it. 3 star for the stupid wasteful and misguiding packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I have hormonal acne around my chin and nothing seemed to be working, until I used this!! All you need to do is put a thin layer over a problem area and it dries out any angry pimples. A little goes a long way too!! Best to use when you skin is freshly cleansed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like wonder! I bought this a week ago after a terrible breakout season and it has worked soooo well. My skin is so much clearer. How ever, it can be a little bit drying if you have a sensitive skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Somewhat effective... Changed from the drying lotion to this, thinking I could wear it during the day (definitely can't wear the pink drying lotion during the day!) It does help conceal, but I can still see it. It would be fine if I was wearing makeup over the top but I rarely wear foundation. Does help reduce pimples though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. I saw the reviews and had high hopes about this product, but unfortunately it didn't do much for me. It didn't blend into my skin or reduce my pimples, it just masked them, but not well. So disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works overnight! I bought this last week and have left it on my skin overnight. it left my skin clear in the morning free of pimples. the only thing was that my skin was more oily by the end of the day than usual. still a great product!

What's the difference between this and the Drying Lotion?

Asked by: AlanaR
The Drying Cream is best used sparingly after moisturiser to target acne affected areas to conceal and sooth before makeup application. The Drying Lotion is best used at nighttime directly on pimples to help clear up skin over night.
