magic watery stuff

A little background on my skin problem just in case its useful. I have been dealing with severe cystic acne for over a year now since I am highly allergic to silicone and I had no idea why I was breaking out so badly at first. I kept on using silicone based products (primers and sunscreen mostly) for a year and so the rampage cystic acne never stops popping up. This really does work best at healing the early stages of cystic acne must say. It doesn't work as best when it has fully formed so keep that in mind. So when you first spot a potential cystic acne, the one that's a little bumpy (feels a bit painful when you move that area of your face), just dab this on the spot and let it dry overnight. I swear it will decrease in size the next day (if you are really early it will completely disappear!). If you are a bit too late and your cystic acne has developed fully, I would recommend using the drying lotion instead. They work really great together! All the best for your skin journey:)

This is my second bottle of Buffering Lotion. It dries up small zits but huge red pimples. I have to use Drying Cream for huge red pimples. The Buffering Lotion can be used under make up as it's in liquid form and watery.

My 1st MB product and now im a convert!

I have hormonal acne and this buffering lotion has greatly helped with my breakouts. The large painful ones that show up on my chin has greatly diminished and is now under control. After this I went and purchased other MB products and slowly becoming a major part of my skincare

I use this whenever I have any pimples. Dab it on the affected area at night and the next day the pimple would have shrank. It's really effective and just a small amount is needed. I find that it really helps to reduce the pimples and somehow makes it disappear in a few days. Definitely recommend it

Does what is says

This buffering lotion really does what is says to calm down the red painful pimples. Many times I can see visible results overnight. Even though the bottle looks small, there is no way to use it up if you only suffer from occasional breakouts. I have used it for half a year and the bottle is still almost full!

Your BFF for Acne Skin

My hyperthyroid condition causes me to have outbreaks on and off and sometimes it gets so bad that some of the zits grows out of control (i.e. bigger, red and painful). The buffering lotion has worked perfectly for me and it is my new BFF whenever there are areas on my face that has deep comedones surfaces (whiteheads that comes out like a string when it is squeezed) or when big and unsightly acne appears after burning several days of midnight oil. It can only be used for that period of time and re-used when the condition reappears again as it is a product that dries your acne. Other areas on your face without such condition should not be applied on.

My must have acne spot treatment!

I apply this on my acne spots, particularly those without a head. It really speeds up the healing process and it dries up the acne spot. I recommend this product for people with big, painful acne. I use it twice a day on clean face whenever I have any spots I want to get rid of.

Great for cysts!

I had bad breakouts on my cheeks because I experimented with taking evening primrose oil supplements. I've been using this lotion for a week and it got rid of 3 cysts, leaving just 1 which is slowly also reducing in size. I heard it works best on newly-formed cysts, but I used it on cysts that were 3 days old and it still worked better than anything I have ever tried. I dabbed some on 2 bumps on my chin that could potentially develop into cysts and they were gone in 3 nights. Love this.

i THINK it works?

This product seems to work on me in the sense that my blemishes and cystic acne reduce in size and redness the next morning upon waking up. However, it has a very strong alcohol scent which may be off-putting to some. Then again, my skin is rather problematic so I trust that this product is one that would be effective on most users!

Buffering Lotion

I really love this buffering lotion. I use it daily, at least twice. It is really good for frequent breakouts like my face. It really reduces redness within minutes and the size of the pimples/acne. New pimples will disappear after a day using this, It is costly but worth it. Currently, I'm at my third bottle :)
