I know, I know... you've probably read a million stories about products or techniques that promise to get rid of your pimples overnight. Like many of you, I was skeptical too. Then, I was introduced to a $17, 50-year-old product I'd never heard of.

There are few things worse than waking up in the morning only to discover that a zit has decided to take over your face. Somehow, your body always has a way of knowing that you either have an interview or a first date planned for later that night. As a female, I have become well aware that my skin can play tricks on me (especially at the worst times), and finding that one product that actually has helped to solve my skin issues has been life-changing.

Two years ago, I walked into my roommate's room in a panic over a pimple the size of a penny that was right in the middle of my cheek. She instantly handed me a small glass bottle that she called "pink cream," and warned me never to shake the bottle. I applied one small dot on the zit with a Q-Tip and went to bed. Not only did the size decrease immensely, but the redness was completely gone. I grabbed my computer and wasted no time adding Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion to my shopping cart, along with a few other products by the same brand. I couldn't believe that most Mario Badescu products were under $25!


Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, $14.45 (Orig. $17.00)

In the years since, this has become my go-to product whenever a zit pops up. With just one drop of the drying lotion, I find that either the pimple has dramatically reduced in size or is totally gone!

After trying out tons of Mario Badescu skin care products over the past couple of years, I am now a part of their massive cult following. Switch up your normal beauty regime and try out my favorite Mario Badescu skincare products below!
