Adult acne is as frustrating as teenage I tell you. Que horror! No matter how much I take care of my skin, having a grease ball face makes me vulnerable to pimples. Have you ever had that bump under the skin? Once in a great while I do. It’s red and a bit painful when you touch it.
Mario Badescu to the rescue. This drying cream is specifically made to prevent that zit under the skin from getting larger. It has aloe that conceals and heals pimples. Dab cream with fingers until it blends with skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before makeup.
Ingredients: Deionized Water, Zinc Oxide, Aloe, Beeswax, Cetyl Alcohol, Lemon Extract, Colloidal Sulfur, Ervol,Octyl Palmitate, Ichthammol,Polysorbate 80, Titanium Dioxide, Polyglycerylmethacrylate (and) Propylene Glycol
So I had that dreadful bump at the tip of my left brow and zit of all places~> right at the center of my collarbone. Goodness gracious! I used this Mario Badescu to conceal and heal. And in three days, they’re completely dry and gone. My only gripe is the strong sulfur scent (combined with other ingredients) so if you’re sensitive to odors, you may not like this. Sulfur has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and keratolytic properties.
Bottom line, ‘hate the smell but love the result. It’s cruelty-free!
