        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

        I really like this product. I have oily skin and this powder minimizes the sheen on my face. Blotting papers only do so much for me and I have to consistently dab my face throughout the day, but with this product I've only had to apply once in the morning and I look great all day! I don't have to go "check my face" multiple times a day when I wear this powder because lasts all day.

            I love this powder for covering up shine and redness from breakouts. It does seem to help them heal faster and never looks cakey.

                                Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder is not solely a sulfur-based product and its performance is based off of the unique formulation and combination of ingredients. That being said, the product contains less than 1% sulfur and is below the established limit of having to list the exact % on the packaging.

                                Dust the powder sparingly on oily or troubled areas on the face (like the T-zone) as needed. The Special Healing Powder includes a puff to apply the powder.

                                At night time, the Special Healing Powder is intended to be applied directly to your problem areas after cleansing and toning - you can skip the moisturizer. We also recommend mixing it with your loose powder for daytime use to control oil. You would cleanse, tone, and moisturize and use the powder after you have applied your makeup.

                                A:

                                Many makeup artists use this product, and we've never received feedback about flashback. That said, the Special Healing Powder is a skin care powder and not a cosmetic powder. It is intended to be very lightly dusted over problematic or oily areas, applied over blemishes, or mixed in with your favorite loose powder.

                                We suggest that you test shoot with it first to make sure it photographs in a way that you're happy with.

                                Rosacea can affect all skin types and can affect people to varying degrees. If you have dry, sensitive skin and suffer from rosacea, you should not use this product. If you have oily skin and have mild rosacea, you would benefit from using the Special Healing Powder when applied to those acne prone areas.

                                You can use this product differently for day and night use. At night time - simply apply the powder directly to your clean skin on areas that are of concern. For day use - we suggest you mix this in with your loose powder or apply very sparingly to problematic oily areas.
