Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

This item is easy to use! Use a wet cotton ball and dip it in the powder to apply it on the areas you want it on your skin. You wait 10 minutes then you can remove it. You will want a toner to remove it instead of just water.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

    I read the reviews to put water in the cap to make a paste, and applying it with a cotton ball works fine. After just one use it shrank the pores on my cheek and really cleaned out some of the black heads on my nose and chin. I can see with continued use how this would really help in the long run! I do agree with the mattifying affect but I plan on using this at night so that does't really apply to me. I don't mind the price because it works and you get a ton of product. I like this better than a typical mask that feels like its stretching/drying out my skin. This isn't too drying compare to other masks I have used and it doesn't have a scent unlike some other Mario products

      good product

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      Used this twice since I received it yesterday and it has made my skin feel amazing and I definitely notice a huge difference in my pores. I have really stubborn blackheads and acne and I've noticed a small improvement but nothing drastic yet. but in my skins overall appearance it's definitely 1000x better. Saw someone post on here it works as a makeup setter so I'm going to try that too! So far love this stuff and definitely recommend for the price!

      I love how smooth my skin feels after using this product, but I have not had the same success other reviewers have had. I hoped to reduce my blackheads by using this, but I haven't noticed an amazing difference yet.

      Incredible!

      By Morgan

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      I couldn't believe that my pores were completely clear after one use! The following day I noticed a big difference in my acne as well. My skin is normally very oily and I was surprised at how much it dried out, so I will not overdo it next time. This was my first Mario Badescu purchase and I can't wait to try more. Unbelievable that an inexpensive product gives such amazing results.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

          All the reviews about it reducing blackheads and pores are accurate. After one use, I had noticeable results, and it made my skin very soft to the touch. I try to use it 2-3 times a week on my t zone, with one of those times doing my whole face. I haven't been very regular but the results are still great. Many people complained of how messy the application is- here's a better way. I put a tiny bit of water in the lid. Then I put water on my finger, dip it in the powder, and mix that in the lid to make a thin paste. Then just apply the paste to your face. It doesn't take much. When applied, you can barely see anything on your face, but when it dries, it turns white. I leave it on at least 15 minutes,. Once it dries, you can see the spots where it has sucked the oil or blackheads out. Then I remove it with Thayer's alcohol free witch hazel. I've had the silver powder for a couple months and it barely looks like I've used any, so it should last a long time. I plan to buy this product again once it runs out. I assume that will be a couple years from now. Great product, fantastic value.

          • Q:

            I have blackheads that are super stubborn on my forehead. Some seem to be just small bumps that won't pop ever. I try not to pop any of them but I couldn't help but try and see if these stubborn tiny bumps would even pop. Is this something that would help me get rid of these bumps on my forehead?

              A:

              Of course! We tend to recommend it for the t-zone, since that area is usually more oily and blackhead prone. But you can certainly apply it to your cheeks, chin, or other areas of concern.

          • Q:

            Since the powder can be mixed with water to achieve a clay texture, will it peel off like a mask or does it have to be washed off?

              A:

              Dip a water-dampened cotton pad into powder—creating a paste-like texture—and press on the T-zone (focusing on the nose and chin area). Wait 10 minutes and remove by wiping off with a toner. To be used 1-2 times a week.

          • Q:

            Most of the questions seem to focus on the t zone area, but I get my worst acne on my cheeks, jawline, and cheekbones. Can this be used there?

          • Q:

            I used this product after I cleansed my face during the nighttime. Is it recommended to serum, moisturize, etc thereafter? It seems difficult since just the astringent removes the powder and there is left over product on the face.

              A:

              After removing the Silver Powder with toner (you can also use water and a washcloth), you can apply your nightly products. If you feel there is leftover product on your nose, you can avoid that area when applying your moisturizers, serums, etc. Any leftover product will be removed when you wash your face in the morning.

            Would this cause my face to become too dry, and therefore over produce oil, if not used sparingly?

              Mario Badescu Silver Powder can work effectively, without over drying your skin, when used properly. Only use the Silver Powder 1-2 times a week and only apply it to oily, congested pores in your T-Zone.
