Hello Lover: Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion
Welcome to a new segment, Hello Lover, where everything is made up and the points don’t matter. Wait…that’s not right. This new segment is where I’ll be bringing you a weekly update of a seriously loved thing. It could be anything like a skincare product, makeup, shampoo, jewelry, clothes, shoes, whatever. I’ll tell you that I love it and why I love it and why you should love it. Lots of love happening on this blog.
So our first Hello Lover product is: Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion
I love this stuff to no end. It’s the tits. $17 is nothing for a bottle of pure magic. They are essentially ripping themselves off. You’re probably all “No that’s too much for a 1 oz. bottle!” But you’re wrong. Because this one bottle will last for months. The bottle I’m on now I’ve had since February, and I’m just about to finish it. If you’ve got a blemish or even feel one coming, grab a Q-tip, stick some MBDL on it and that sucker will be gone by morning. Really, this is not a drill. It’s made with salicylic acid and calamine so it dries up whatever has moved into your pores and it reduces redness at the same time. “Yer a wizard, Mario” is what I would like to say.
I will tell you that it indeed makes you look like you’ve got the chicken pox when you put this pink goop on your face, but that’s why you use it at night or if you’re not going out in public. Or do go out in public and make everyone think you have the plague. That’s cool too.
