Amazing!!

By Chris Tea

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Clears acne
  • Combates Redness
  • Easy to apply
  • Goes On Smoothly

Cons

  • Messy

Best Uses

  • After Shower/Bath
  • Bedtime
  • Combating Breakouts

Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

Be careful when you open it. Gently that the puff that comes with it and shake as much powder off of it as you can on a piece of paper. Funnel that powder back into the jar and toss the puff. I use a travel size foundation brush to put it on.

That being said
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!!
I have moderate acne and this stuff starts to clear it up within hours. I put it on before bed, after I've washed my face, and can see changes almost immediately. Within two days, my face is blemish free.

The price is higher than what I would pay normally, however, a little goes a long way (swirl, tap, buff!) and it works so well.If you're struggling to find something to help you clear up your obnoxious acne, you should try this. I haven't tried it on cystic acne, but for mild to moderate adult acne, this is a golden ticket.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

    I use this product after washing & toning face. I use a brush to pat it into the pores on my nose & chin. Then apply make up or wear it alone. It is a very silky powder texture that adheres to your skin nicely.

    Too drying

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

        Sulfur works well for me on breakouts, but this was far too drying for me, especially in the winter. There isn't a good way to use really sparingly - it's just an open jar so it can get messy.

            After I cleanse my face, I use this on skin breakouts. In the morning, it's almost all gone. Item doesn't smell, blends nicely and wouldn't want to be without it.

            Curbs grease and neutralizes redness

                Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                I use this product after moisturizing, but before putting on makeup. I'd recommend using a small makeup/concealer brush instead of the poof they include, because the poof will put on a LOT of product.

                I have fair skin, so this actually does a good job of neutralizing redness around breakouts before I put on makeup. I only use on affected areas and use about the same amount as I would concealer.

                I definitely notice an impact in my skin - if I use this powder, it doesn't get greasy during the day underneath my makeup. It really helps in curbing breakouts from spreading.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                I've struggled with keeping my skin clear for a few years now, I've tried just about everything.
                With this product my acne has cleared up very quickly, but I did get a few random spots now and then. I had stopped using it for a month or so and had no breakouts(could even go out with no makeup on). Then I switched my birth control and had horrible painful cystic breakouts... got this bad boy out and it cleared them OVER NIGHT! No pain no hard bumps, just slight redness and some dry skin that will be gone in a day or two.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                I just bought this product yesterday and I'm already hooked. After reading the reviews I decided to buy a separate brush to apply it with (any powder brush will do) and it works great! Just tap a bit it in the lid, swirl it around, and there you go! I applied it for the first time before going to sleep last night and upon waking saw a noticeable improvement. It also, when used sparingly, doesn't leave a tint on the face like some reviewers were saying. I believe this product will also work well under a powder foundation.

                  I bought this thinking it would help my oily acne prone skin but instead it really did nothing. My acne stayed the same and the color of it make it hard to wear under my make-up. All in all give it a try and see for yourself.

                      Special Healing Powder is formulated for all skin types. The key ingredient, sulfur, is gentle and antimicrobial, so it helps to disinfect as well as to calm the skin. It is also designed to absorb excess oil.

                      Yes, you can use the Special Healing Powder on top of your makeup to control oil and help heal breakouts. We suggest using it mixed with your finishing or setting powder, after applying your makeup.

                      A:

                      Because of its potency, we recommend using this product sparingly. Though it can be used all over the face, for best results, apply only to problem areas and areas of excess oil, such as the T-zone.
