What do Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, and Riverdale's Lili Reinhart all have in common? (Well, we mean besides their fame and influence…) If you're stumped, we don't blame you. That's a rather unlikely grouping of celebs since they work in such a diverse set of industries—modeling, beauty and social media, and television, respectively.
As it turns out, according to Girlfriend, an Australian publication, they have a favorite skincare product in common. That's right, they all share swear by the exact same acne treatment for a clear and even complexion. The best part is that it's not a super exclusive or insanely expensive product; it's only $17. You might recognize it as something of a spot treatment classic.
The product in question is Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion ($17), the cult favorite pink liquid is a mixture of calamine and salicylic acid (along with a few other blemish diminishing ingredients). Simply take a cotton swab, submerge into the pink liquid that sits at the bottom of the bottle, and dab directly onto a blemish. Leave it on to dry overnight and wash off in the morning. We can assure you that it shrinks the size of blemishes and calms redness kind of dramatically. Some people even swear it can make blemishes completely vanish overnight.
Kylie Jenner certainly agrees, as she's been really vocal about her love for the product on her app, her Snapchat, and in certain magazines. She's even shown her fans how she applies the mixture, like in the image above.
Lili Reinhart shares a similar love for the product, sharing snapshots of her pink-speckled face on her social media channels, like this one above (friendship spot treatments anyone? We're in). Though Bella Hadid has never been photographed applying the product, she also showed some love for it on her Instagram story a couple of weeks back by sharing a picture of all of the Mario Badescu products she loves most. Alongside this very drying lotion was Mario Badescu's famous Aloe, Herb and Rosewater Spray ($7), which is soon set to launch in a lavender scented version next month.
We love learning about celeb's favorite products and recommendations, but we love their transparency even more. It's nice to see celebrities being so open about their own acne, and not hiding it away. After all, it's something we all struggle with, some more than others, so why not talk about it and share advice, right?
