- Gwyneth Paltrow’s must-have for clear skin is on sale right now for Black Friday.
- The star loves using Mario Badescu Drying Lotion—and it’s under $15 right now.
- Celebs like Drew Barrymore and Heidi Klum are fans of the brand.
Gwyneth Paltrow knows how to keep her skin glowing. And while some of it might have to do with the Goop founder’s unique treatments, a bit of it (beyond genes) comes from her skincare routine. We already know that the 50-year-old keeps her skin protected from the sun and uses the occasional drugstore facial cleanser in addition to her Goop must-haves. Currently, we have our sights set on one product she’s touted for maintaining a clear complexion Mario Badescu Drying Lotion—and it’s on sale for Black Friday!
Paltrow told Byrdie that she loves the product, per an ELLE Australia story. “I always just use the same pimple thing from the facialist in New York I’ve had forever—that chalky Mario Badescu,” she told the outlet.
Now is the perfect time to try out Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (or stock up if you’re a regular user) because thanks to Black Friday, you can get a bottle for 25% off on Amazon. Regularly $17, this deal makes Paltrow’s go-to acne treatment just $13. We love when celebrities use products that fit into a non-celebrity budget.

Just like the rest of us, Paltrow is not immune to breakouts, hence her affinity for Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. A staple in Paltrow’s skincare routine, this spot treatment helps blemishes on the surface dry up overnight. With such a healthy glow, it’s no wonder she posed nude for her 50th birthday.
What makes the lotion so powerful? Well, its ingredient list for starters. Formulated with acne-fighters like salicylic acid, zinc oxide, and sulfur, treating breakouts is as simple as dipping a Q-tip into the lotion and dabbing it in on your blemish.
Shoppers love the product too, giving it nearly five stars and over 30,000 reviews. “When I feel like I have a pimple coming on, this is my go-to. It significantly reduces the size and inflammation of the blemish overnight. I always make sure to have this with me when I travel for events or meetings,” writes one satisfied Amazon shopper. “I am constantly having to buy this on repeat because it truly does work. I have told so many people about this product and they all rave about this just as much as I do. Once I feel a bump come up I automatically apply this to it, and within the next day or two it has dried up. Highly recommend,” writes another.
The skin-clearing lotion comes in a one-fluid-ounce bottle so it fits in your purse and is an approved size for airline carry-on. You’ll be ready to tackle pimples whenever a skincare emergency arises.
Available on Amazon Prime, you can get Mario Badescu Drying Lotion on sale and delivered in two days. Just in time to treat that pimple you currently feel brewing under your skin.
If you need more convincing, Drew Barrymore is a fan of the brand’s Drying Mask. And Heidi Klum loves the brand’s Buttermilk Moisturizer. So there’s more to explore beyond acne-fighting products.
