Users Feedback

Despite the makers claims , the fact are that there is a wide spectrum of results, ranging from the highly positive to the very negative, it does appear to be effective for some yet not others.. the majority of poor reviews do seem to come from the younger age bracket (18-24yrs) so it could be more beneficial to those slightly older..

It certainly seems that you pay your money and take your chance with this one….

Reported Side Effects

Some users do mention a stinging sensation after the product was applied.

Where To Buy Mario Badescu Drying Lotion In Australia

Available from a number of popular retail outlets, we found it on Mecca[dot]

Any Cash Back Guarantee

There appears to be nothing offered by the manufacturer, individual outlets may have their own guarantees, as an example, Mecca accepts returns and will refund on goods sent back to them in an unopened, saleable condition within 30 days

Final Thoughts

However well established a product is and despite the marketing hype etc, its real life results that really count and the facts are that this product works for some and not others…. it should have a mild effect on whiteheads and clearing up small pimples, but the majority of users in their teens and twenties do (according to our research) fail to see much by way of improvement.

Its hard to recommend this product, especially when there are other natural OTC treatments out there that offer far more encouraging user feedback..

One such product range is the ones offered by Exposed Skincare.. US made and now readily available throughout Australia, its products are well formulated and can take care of even the most aggressive acne breakouts…Available as separate products and also in special acne care kits, prices start at $15

Whats more the manufacturers back up their products with a simple, yet bold guarantee – Use Exposed skincare products for just 30 days and if you have not got clearer skin, send the empty boxes back to us for a full refund…

We have yet to come across another manufacturer who offers this sort of guarantee…
