    Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

    I've been using this for a couple months now, and I've noticed that it does work wonderfully... until the next day. I notice an immediate reduction in the visibility of large pores and blackheads, but by the next day, my pores look like I never even used it. I will continue to use it, but really just for the temporary pore refining abilities. It is much less expensive than daily-use pore refining under-makeup treatments or primers, and for the days when I don't wear makeup, I want to feel confident that my large pores and occasional blackheads aren't screaming "LOOK AT ME!"

      This was fun to use. My teenagers love it also and saw immediate results. I already fell in love with this brand and was willing to try and pay more than I sometimes spend.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      If you have deep/dark blackheads, you seriously need to try this product. I bought this to try on my nose, cheeks and chin because I saw all the favorable reviews here and I also already had some trust in this brand because I love their Healing & Soothing Mask. I decided for the first week to use this product every night to really clean out my pores (now I use it twice a week) and I can say that I saw a vast improvement after the first week. My pores definitely look cleaner and smaller and I love how this doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of 5 is because the fallout can be rather annoying sometimes but in the end its completely worth it for the results.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      I've had blackheads for the past 11 years. They got worse and worse because I did not take good care of my face when I was younger so I thought there was no more hope for my blackheads since they were soooo deep into my pores. I read reviews and was a bit hesitant to try this product... but this product is AMAZING! If you have concern with blackheads, TRY THIS OUT!

      I have really sensitive skin and I'm trying to find a toner.. so I was only using this product once a week for the past 3-4 months.

      Here is what I did:
      1. Wet a cotton pad and then gently dab the cotton pad onto the product (do this over the sink because it can get messy)
      2. Rub it over pores that need to cleansed (I put it on top of my nose, my chin, and then above my lips last when there isn't as much product on the cotton pad anymore)
      3. Leave it there for 10 minutes
      4. Put toner on a cotton pad and rub it off
      5. Rinse my face and used Biore blackhead strips (nose and sometimes face ones) for 10-15 minutes
      6. Remove the strips when it hardens and WOW, so much comes off compared to not using this powder

      AMAZING PRODUCT. But be careful because it can get pretty messy with the powder.. careful when you first open the product as well, it's pretty filled to the rim. They didn't cheap out

      This product works great if you have oily skin and just want it to look better. It really did make my skin less oily, however it didn't get rid of blackheads as it says it can...it also can make a mess.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        This product is amazing. I had a lot of small, but deep black heads on my nose and upper cheek area. As soon as i started using the silver powder, it has lifted the blackheads to the surface more and more with every application. Its kinda weird when you first start out using it, but i just take a wet cotton ball and put the power on it. Instantly, it becomes a paste that you put on your difficult areas for black heads. Not all mine are gone yet but i have only been using the product for 3 weeks. They have certainly been brought to the surface though in such a short amount of time. I take off the mask with astringent which helps get into the opened pores from the mask. I love it! I'm sure i'll be back buying more soon.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        After reading all the other reviews, I decided to give the silver powder a chance. I have a lot of blackheads (mainly on/around my nose) and I've tried pretty much everything there is to get rid of them and to help my enlarged pores. For the first week, I used this product once every night. After that, I used it once-twice a week. It did seem to kind of blur my pores (if that makes any sense), but I didn't notice the blackheads on my nose getting any clearer. I've used this product for about a month now. Maybe I haven't used it long enough? Or maybe it just won't work with my skin? Regardless of the reason, I won't be purchasing this again. It's also a hassle to use. The application isn't as bad as removing it. When I apply it, I don't use a thick layer...but it still takes two or more cotton pads soaked with toner to remove it all. And while it's drying on your skin, it flakes EVERYWHERE and you end up breathing a lot of it in. It gets all over your clothes and everything. The silver powder just isn't my favorite. But maybe it'll work for you...

        While it can get a bit messy as it dries, this stuff is amazing. I've always had issues with clogged pores on my nose, and I noticed an immediate difference. Some people use it daily to start; this dried my skin a little, so I just use it once or twice a week. This stuff would be a bargain at twice the price!

          Wow. What can I say? I used it on my sister since her blackheads are growing... After we washed it away, we can bare see any blackheads!

          I used it next and they appeared smaller. I'm very impressed and happy about this product. I'll be buying more Mario Badescu products very soon!
