From the shop floor:
 “This is not to be applied all over, just on painful blemishes. Use it with the Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion to treat cystic whilst this treats surface blemishes.” – Lucy, retail skincare manager
Without shaking the bottle, dip a cotton bud into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Apply solution to the surface of the blemish and allow to dry. For best use, wear overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good riddance This stuff is great for small blemishes- dries them up over night! I had a few larger blind pimples which have taken a few more applications but it still works a treat! It does dry the skin so remember to use a moisturiser or oil in between treatments !
