As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.

  85. Even though I am now in my 30’s I continue to have issues with acne, so unfair!!! And typically my skin is really oily, but off and on I’ll have these times of dryness that really throws me off, and then it goes back to being really oily again. My skin is just very unpredictable and hard to manage. I’ve never seen a product like this drying lotion before, but it looks really neat and I’d love to try it! 🙂

  86. This was recommended in my skin analysis and would really like to try it. 🙂

  87. I have chin acne at 44 and have tried to many things to try and clear it up. I can’t take BC pills even though they did help clear up my chin acne. I would love to try your products. Especially the ones that target cystic acne. I do get regular acne occasionally but the deep ones on my chin are the ones that affect me emotionally. I am an esthetician and have recommended many of your products to clients but haven’t tried the buffering lotion or drying lotion. Would be very interested in giving them a try and possibly recommending them to clients with the same issues that I have. Thank you!

  88. This drying lotion is amazing!
