Kylie Jenner adores her make-up, but underneath the contouring and sculpting and lashes and lip fillers, she’s still your average teenager, and something many teenagers grapple with are pimples. In fact, though our teen years are long behind us, we’re still dealing with the odd Vesuvius-like blemish in our 20s and 30s and learning that adult acne is a very real and unfortunate annoyance. Showing the world that she’s far from perfect (an endearing trait indeed), the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has taken to Snapchat to share her all time favourite spot-zapping potion and whenever anyone speaks of acne solutions that work, we don’t ask questions, we listen up.
Thankfully, the product that Kylie is flogging is available online to Irish shoppers, so no need to go booking your flights to LA just yet. The brand in question is Mario Badescu and here’s how Kylie puts their sure-to-sell-out drying lotion to use:
“You guys, if any of you have a little pimple this is some drying lotion that I love.
You take your little swab — you don’t shake [the bottle] — you get down deep in there and get your solution and then you apply — like boop!”
According to the product description, “the Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot treatment. Formulated with salicylic acid, calamine and other quick-drying ingredients, this product will shrink ugly whiteheads virtually overnight while you sleep. While other acne spot treatments can irritate and dry delicate or sensitive skin, this product is safe and effective for all skin types.”
