Step away from the toothpaste. Drying out spots demands an expert product and Mario Badescu Drying Lotion has been doing just that for 45 years. A potent pink formula in the tiniest of vials containing salicylic acid, sulphur and zinc oxide dries up blemishes overnight for clearer skin by morning.
This did a really good job of drying out and reducing blemishes. It was effective at reducing spots but it dried my skin out quite a lot, so a good moisturiser was a must afterwards.
