The Power of Pink

There is nothing like being a teen. You are young and have a little taste of freedom, yet none of the burdening responsibilities of being an adult.

The only downside: pimples.

These nasty boogers especially seem to come up whenever you don't want them, like on the night before a dance. There is something so awful about the sight of a red little eruption beneath the skin that lingers for days, ready and waiting to explode the moment you least want it to. Hello Mt. Vesuvius.

Well I have found an extinguisher to tame this fire. And its pink! Quite unexpected don't you think? Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a spot treatment that minimizes your pimple overnight. Like that.

All you have do do is the three d's: dip, dab, and dot. First you dip a q-tip into the bottle all the way down to the pinky residue that settles to the bottom of the bottle. Next, you dab around in the bottle gently to collect the residue without mixing the sediments with the oil. Finally, you dot the pleasantly pink residue on all offending pimples. Left on overnight, the lotion makes a significant difference and sometimes dries the entire pimple, all without robbing your skin of moisture.

I have finally found a reliable treatment that works before a dance. Now if only I could find an equally reliable date...

Yes, this stuff rocks...even for us who get the pimple once in a blue moon. I gave away the last of my bottle to a friend (a guy almost 60) who gets an occasion blip on his otherwise very handsome mug, and glad to have the handy link to order more. I also forwarded the info on to another guy buddy of mine...who at 19 has pretty gorgeous skin, except for a tiny now and then zit which intrudes on what I call him "Jr. Prince Charming" mien.

As practically life-altering good products go, this stuff ranks right up there with NewSkin and Magic Erasers!
