Mario Badescu Drying Cream
This MB product targets those tiny little bumps under your skin (if you don't know what I'm talking about you can stop reading :) ) It helps to dry them up, prevents them from getting bigger and claiming further face real estate space. It contains aloe vera to help soothe and heal those spots that refuse to disappear...
This cream acts a bit as a concealer, and is best applied after moisturizer before makeup.
You need such a tiny, tiny amount of this stuff that seriously MB should consider downsizing this jar to a 1/4 of the original along with the price. I have a little sample jar that I got from MB in January, and with practically daily use I haven't hit bottom yet. The full sized version will dry out on me before I use it up.
This cream is clay in color, and I prefer to use it at night after my moisturizer. I know this can be used as a concealer but I just don't have the patience to blend it in. Somehow no matter how little I pick up it always ends up to be too much, and I'm left with pale blotches on my face. This does not bother me as I'm going to bed, but in the morning it would be a hassle to even out.
I'm on the fence on this one... It doesn't dry out my skin, but it doesn't have much of an impact either. I think I want it to work, but it just doesn't...
