just so so
if you feel you are about to have a cystic acne, applying this overnight reduces the inflammation but doesnt totally get rid of it. if its full blown cystic acne, does very little to improve it. directions say you need to apply it just like you would moisturizer but i really cant stand the smell so i just use this as spot treatment. not really crazy about it. its just so so..

It's not meant to treat cystic acne, it's for under surface bumps.

Drying mask is much better. I never had any luck with this stuff.

Smelly and sticky, but helps
I love Mario Badescu products, but this one wasn't my favorite. I think it does help your acne, but it's a little difficult to find a time where you can actually wear it. So here are the good things about it: 1. It helps dry up acne (not in a day or a few hours, because that doesn't exist y'all), but it actually does shrink the size of that bad boy 2. it has some color to it, so it can help cut down on some redness if you have any. So that's all the good things, on to the bad: 1. This product smells and it smells pretty bad. I can smell it even after I've put foundation and powder over it, which brings us to 2. this stuff doesn't dry, or it doesn't dry fast enough (like even after 2-4 mins) so just know that when you put your makeup on you're gonna spread this stinky mess all over your face 3. this is not an acne concealer, it's not smooth, it's kind of grainy, this is not going to blend into your skin, you can still see it girl! 4. is the same as 2, but it messes with your foundation and can make it blotchy. Overall I would say this product is a flop, but it actually does help surface pimples, it's not going to prevent them, but it can shrink them. The Mario Badescu drying lotion is 100X (ok maybe 75X better) than this and you put it on at night, when no one will see or smell you, so don't waste your money girl, leave this at the store.

It's not meant to be worn under your makeup, I don't put it on before my makeup anyways. I put it on as a treatment at night.
