Spot Be Gone!

Hey guys!

Sorry I’ve been MIA recently I’m settling into a new job so been super busy!

Over the next few weeks I promise to be more active, I have a few things to review and talk about so keep your eyes peeled…

With the temperature dropping fast and winter fast approaching I find my skin suffers to adjust the seasonal change, so Today I want to talk about spots. I’ve been rather lucky and through my teenage years I didn’t suffer with acne other than a few pre menstrual breakouts here and there but nothing to complain too much about.

My skin type is normal/oily and relatively clear but when I get a spot it’s a SPOT! (Usually somewhere great like the tip of my nose or in the middle of my forehead or chin…URGH) up to very recently have been quite painful spots, I’ve pretty much tried everything to get the spot to go down and disappear as quickly as possible but have recently come across a product which has worked wonders and really impressed me so I’d thought I’d share the love!

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Some of you may or may not be familiar with this brand but for a couple years I kept seeing it here and there and I finally thought I’d do some research on the drying lotion in particular as it’s got a great reputation for drying out a spot/spots quickly within a 2-3 days which is amazing!


This drying lotion is a firm favourite of beauty professionals and celebrities like Kate Moss, Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Aniston so I thought I’d give it a try…

How it works

This spot treatment is made with a blend of Calamine and Salicylic Acid, the drying Lotion clears up and soothes unsightly whiteheads overnight without irritating the surrounding skin.

Suitable for all skin types, even those with the most sensitive skin (although please test patch first) the drying Lotion provides immediate relief from break-outs and blemishes, making it a certified skincare must-have product.

How to use

When you look at the bottle it seems tiny but trust me guys a little goes a long way!

The pink solution sits at the bottom of the bottle and the clear on top, you would instantly think you need to shake the bottle but please do not! It needs to remain like this to be effective.


As you can see the pink powder sits at the bottom of the bottle, this is what you need to dip the cotton bud into.


This treatment is best used in the evening after your night time cleanse, simply dip a clean cotton bud into the bottle until it reaches the pink solution at the bottom carefully remove the cotton bud and dab on to the spot, although it’s a gentle product make sure that you consentrate only on the effected area as it is a drying lotion and can cause dryness if using it on larger areas of the skin, then leave to dry.

I usually notice a improvement either the next day or a couple days max depending on how angry the blemish is to begin with, if I feel a spot coming on and can see it I will put some on as soon as possible to try to stop it in its tracks.

I definitely recommend this treatment it’s one of the best spot treatments I’ve tried and I really like how fast it gets to work, if you suffer with mild acne or breakouts this is for you!

I purchased this at urban outfitters but I know it can also be purchased at Beauty bay too, for more info or to purchase click here
