      I have very sensitive, acne prone skin. I was breaking out like crazy and bought this praying it would help. It is literally a miracle mask. I also use it as an overnight spot treatment on really bad areas. and omg. It clears up acne overnight. My only complaint is the smell, but thats a small price to pay for acne free skin!

          This is not a bad product (it really does dry out your problem areas) but the scent is a different story! Before purchasing the mask, I did my research and saw that many people disliked the scent. I was hesitant in believing them because I don't really mind bad smelling skincare products. However, this mask is not an exception! It smells so much like cigarettes/tires and pretty much is unbearable. I would return this product if I could :(

          My boyfriend and I used this and we love it. He had a huge pimple on his chin and we used it 2 days in a row and it completely shrunk and wasn't as red anymore. The smell is very strong and can be really nasty to some people but I look past is because of how amazing it is. After I use this, I moisturize and go to sleep and when I wake up, my face looks a lot smoother and pimples aren't as big or red.

            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.

                  A:

                  We would not recommend using the Drying Mask as a spot treatment. Our Acne Repair Kit features a collection of spot treatments: Drying Cream (small under the surface bumps), Drying Lotion (whiteheads), and Buffering Lotion (deep, cystic acne). You can purchase them together in the kit or separately to spot treat the different types of blemishes you may have.

                  A:

                  The Drying Mask should be applied to freshly cleaned, slightly damp skin, focusing on areas of concern. After 15-20 minutes, the mask should be rinsed thoroughly with warm water. For best results, follow with Special Cucumber Lotion to ensure the mask is thoroughly removed.

                  Our Drying Mask is best applied at night. Apply a thin layer of mask on clean skin, avoiding eye area. Wait 15-20 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water. After removing the mask, you can follow with your usual toner and moisturizer.

                  The Drying Mask should be used 2-3 times a week to help clear problematic skin. Should you only be experiencing skin issues on your forehead, you can apply the mask only to that area.

                1 answer

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  It depends on the type and severity of your breakouts. The Drying Mask is extremely effective as an all over treatment to help shrink and dry out blemishes - and is great for wide-spread problems. Drying Cream is a spot treatment that is not rinsed off. We recommend that Drying Cream be applied sparingly to small patches of under-the-surface bumps.
