What Is It?
Before we dive in any further, it’s important to note what exactly all the fuss is about. To put it simply, Badescu’s formula works to dry out the pimple along with it’s associated redness to have it disappear it by morning. Sounds simple, right? Its two key ingredients include salicylic acid and sulphur which penetrate the skin to clear dirt trapped in the pores. The addition of calamine also works to calm the skin and mitigate redness without further irritating the skin.
To Shake Or To Not Shake?
If you’ve done your research, you'll know that one of the most frequently asked questions concerning the Drying Lotion is if you should or should not shake the lotion before applying it to your blemishes. And as tempting as it may be, Badescu advises to avoid shaking the bottle.
