Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

I love this product! It's different. A little awkward to use but it works! It really works! I use it to mainly control my oily skin and to make my pores look smaller and it does that.
I use it in the morning just before I put on my foundation. I wash my face then I put on several different serums, a moisturizer and before I put on my foundation, I apply the silver powder mainly around my nose and cheeks. My complexion is so smooth afterwards.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      After seeing the fab reviews I was excited to try this. Soooooo disappointed! If you're looking for something to control oil or shine then this is it. It did not get rid of my blackheads at ALL! It did decrease oil on my face though.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        YOU GUYS YOU GUYS YOU GUYS:
        This is seriously the best thing I have ever bought. I have extremely oily skin in my t-zone (regardless of how much product I use) but this has helped tremendously with my blackheads and the size of my pores. For the record, I don't write reviews for things, and I will never recommend something that isn't amazing. That being said, if you're JUST using the powder and taking it off then going to bed, you're doing it wrong. Its a lengthy process and you have to be really disciplined with your skin care but I promise if you take the time to do it the end results are so so worth it. This is my tried and true BEST RESULTS for the powder:
        *note: I use this as my night time routine

        1. Cleanse your face in the shower (obviously). I take really hot showers because a) I just like hot showers and b) I make sure the steam gets my pores open and ready to fight acne crime!!!
        2. first thing I do after my shower is wet a cotton ball with warm water and dap/spread a fairly thin layer all over my t-zone. let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Particles will fall off but its not a big deal. wipe it off with another cotton ball that has been dabbed in toner (alcohol free toner removes product the best)
        3. Rinse with hot water again and leave wet. Proceed to use BIORE strips (other best product I have ever purchased) You really want your pores to be open so the strips will cling to them and pull the dirt out. Leave the strips on for at least 15 minutes and then pull off; You'll see all the junk that the powder soaked up and the strips pulled out. PS its gross but in a super addicting way.
        4. Rinse (again, I know) quickly with COLD water to seal your pores and follow with a water based, oil free moisturizer.

        Try this every day or every other day for a week or two to determine your own results; the powder is not even expensive as my one container I own has lasted me for MONTHS.

            I have very large pores and have always struggled with keeping them unclogged. I was very excited when I read all the great reviews for this product and I immediately purchased it along with some other Mario products. Initially it seemed as though it did loosen up the junk in my pores, but my skin actually looked worse. My face broke out and my pores looked larger! I thought perhaps this was just the initial drawing out of all the junk clogging my pores, but subsequent uses just made things worse. I'm glad that this works for so many other people, just very sad it did not work for me. :(

                This product is LIFE CHANGING! I have never written a review for a product until now. It is that great of a product! First application was amazing. I put the powder on and in 10 minutes all the deep black heads on my nose were gone! And my pores shrunk to barely nothing! This is a MUST buy!

                  I LOVE this! I have heard SO much about Mario's products but have never tried them. Today I made my first Mario purchase, which was this product. I have oily/ combination skin. I put this on as directed - with a damp cotton round, blot on face and smooth around. You do not want a thick, thick layer.. just enough to cover you cheeks, forehead, chin, nose, etc. Then I took my shower and afterwards, washed it off with toner on a cotton round. I followed with just splashing water on my face and then dried it off. I could tell a different IMMEDIATELY and so could my family! I am SOO excited I found something for my enlarged pores and black heads!!!

                    I use this product every other night and I'm obsessed. I would use it every night but I don't want to dry my skin out. I wash my face, exfoliate and then use the silver powder. I take it off using toner and then moisturize!

                      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.

                          Would it be too much for my skin if I used this product along with my Mario Badescu flower and tonic face mask weekly? (Also toner morning and night) I don't want too be too harsh on my skin but I struggle with blackheads and oily T-zone.

                            Mario Badescu Silver Powder is intended to be used as a spot treatment once or twice a week. Apply as instructed, leave on for 10 minutes, and remove with toner. This product is not meant to be left on overnight.

                            Although you can use cool water, for best results, wipe off with toner or astringent for a pore tightening effect.
