I can see a difference.

By Cherie

from TN

Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

I like this product, will it completely remove every single balckhead, no. But I can differently tell a difference. Read the review below this. Place a small amount in a small scuffle cup and wet a thin tapered make up brush to apply. I'm going to try a Bore� strip next time then apply the silver powder.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

    I've only used this twice because it is so messy. I don't feel like it's worth the price since half of the powder spills everywhere during application.
    No major difference/improvement in my skin, but maybe it's because I haven't tried it enough.
    I won't buy this again.

    Need help with application? Try this!

    By Crystallovely

    from Alaska

    Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

    Reading reviews I see a lot of people having trouble with application. I put a drop of water in the lid, got my finger wet and dipped it in the powder then mixed it with the water in the lid to make a paste, then put it on with my finger. Didn't waste ANY product this way! I hope this helps someone! My husband had tons of big blackheads and after one application I could see a huge difference.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        This stuff claims to clear clogged pores, but after using it 4 times, I have noticed my texture issues get WORSE, with weird bumps starting to form under my skin. I have used this exactly as directed and it didn't do anything for oil control either. Not worth the money. Not worth the mess. This seems to have worked for others, but I see nothing behind all the hype.

          I don't know but I see no results.. When I use it I use it it leaves my nose so soft the first day and days after it looks how I had it before so.I'm not sure why.

              This stuff works wonders like no other and it works just like it says! I completely saw a difference after one use, and I have a ton of blackheads and they are all gone. I use this product twice a week. Only problem is it is messy.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

                I made a huge mess with at first. It said to wet a cotton ball and dip it in the powder and then apply to skin. Ha! Easier said than done. It clumped and I wasted a bunch of it. I had to figure out a better way to apply this as the product isn't exactly cheap. After some trial and error I found a way to apply it w/o the waste. After washing my face and while my face is still wet I take a big makeup brush, dip it in the continer and tap the extra off, then I apply it. It's a win-win. No mess, and the coverage is even and absorbs into pores.

                    Mario Badescu Silver Powder is named for the color of the powder, which is a silver-like hue. Silver Powder is super effective at combating t-zone shine, decongesting pores, and balancing oil in the skin.

                • Q:

                  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.

                    We recommend using each product on different nights to prevent irritation.

                    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.

                  does this product only produce results with only using a toner/astringent or can I just use water ?

                    A:

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