Product summary

"Mario Badescu - Drying Lotion Plastic" is effective for: Anti-blemish and Anti-inflammatory

This product could be helpful for: Moisturizing, but its actives are not the most effective or are not well-studied.

Ingredient callouts

  • Salicylic acid (0.40% - 0.90%). This is an oil-soluble exfoliating acid. Because of this property, it can work inside pores and help reduce the congestion. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and is used to treat acne. Because it is a quite strong exfoliator, be careful with using this product too often: it could result in over-exfoliation.
  • Humectants (glycerin 0.85% - 1.25%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
