Great for acne

By Brizzle

from Central Florida

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Balances Skin
  • Doesn't over dry skin
  • Gentle
  • Not Greasy

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone Skin

    Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

    I've sensitive, combo' skin and struggle with cystic acne. Adding this to my weekly regime has helped keep my cystic flair ups under control. I use it 2-3 times a week alternating between different masks depending on what state my skin is in. Doesn't over dry my skin. You can definitely smell the sulfur. However, once you learn to appreciate Mario badescu's efforts in creating a line of products that are genuine with their ingredients and purpose, it won't bother you much.

    This is magic! I use this twice a week and the Clinique clarifying lotion twice a day, and together they keep my sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin clear. That's a lot for someone battling cystic acne for the last three years.

        This mask has really helped my acne. I actually kind of like the smell. It has an earthy scent, like clay. I recommend alternating this with the healing and soothing mask. My face would be too dry if I didn't.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

        This product has been my new go-to for those stubborn breakouts. It's a great mask, although I do admit that the smell is strong af. Kind of gives you a headache and it's unlike anything I've ever smelled before BUT, I did find that after 3-4 uses, I got used to it. Would not recommend if you're sensitive to fragrance, but props to you if you decide to tough it out because this is great for getting rid of acne quicker than usual. Would purchase again!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

        The tiniest bit does go a long way. It works great with drying out spots that are stubborn but it does make the skin flake around that spot. Also helps with minor texture. The only thing you have to get by is the smell. It definitely lingers on the skin far after it is washed out.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

          This mask does a good job of treating the blemishes on your skin and absorbing oil without making your face feel dry. I personally don't mind the smell of this product, but I can understand other people not liking it. It smells of a mixture of oil and tires, and the smell (while not overpowering) does stay with you for a while. But besides that, this is an excellent product, and I will be buying it again!
