When Erin first asked me to participate in her fun, new “Product Junkies” series, my mind was spinning. How would I ever narrow my selection down to just one product? There are so many products that I love and use regularly: skin care products, hair products, and of course, make-up. The more I thought about it, I knew that I wanted to share a product with the readers of Elements of Style that would truly knock your socks off; something with nearly immediate, impressive results. With most products, you might notice a difference over the course of a few weeks, but that definitely is not the case with Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion.

I am very fortunate in that I have what the skin care people refer to as “normal” skin. It’s neither dry nor oily and my main complaint are the dark circles that I inherited from my mom’s side of the family. Aside from that, my skin situation is pretty copacetic. However, every now and again I’ll get a dreaded pimple, but I no longer stress about them or nurse them for a week until they go away. Anytime I feel a blemish coming on, I turn to my Badescu Drying Lotion. I always apply it at night, after washing and moisturizing my face. It is a solution made up of a dense, pink liquid on the bottom and a clear liquid on the top. The instructions say not to shake it, so you just dip a cotton swab into the bottle, dab it on your blemish, and by morning it’s either gone or much improved!
