      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

      This is wonderful! I have oily skin, and the summer time is brutal. Generally within a couple of hours of washing, my face is very oily. I started using the Mario Badescu products that were recommended to me a few weeks ago, and just the regimen they recommended was a huge improvement. I've added this powder, and WOW. It's reducing shine, but not drying my skin out, and it is reducing redness on blemishes very quickly. Nothing is an instant miracle cure, but this is as close as it's ever gotten for me. I use this, and I use the Drying Lotion overnight. Today, this reduced redness on a large blemish within just a couple of hours I noticed a difference. Again, it's not a vanishing miracle powder, but pretty darn close! The ingredients in this powder are known to have calming effects on irritated skin, and it lives up to its promises! It looks coarse and like it would be hard to spread evenly, but a little goes a LONG way and it does spread quite nicely.

              As suggested by the store clerk, I used it right along with my setting powder. It worked great! I only wish it came in true skin colors.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                  After cleaning and moisturizing skin at night I sparingly put this on my acne prone skin's problem areas and rub it in a little just so it isn't loosely clinging to my skin because that makes a mess. This is especially helpful shrinking pimples overnight and works great on my cystic acne which can otherwise grow larger and become painful. The price is a great value once you see the results!

                      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                      I'm just going to say to start with, I'm not sure how to use this. There aren't any instructions with it and it's not really doing what I thought it was going to.

                      I was going to use this as a finishing powder for my combo skin. It's not for that. It leaves a really noticeable greenish/yellow color on the face.

                      I guess if you blend it in really, really well it could work. It does get rid of a bit of redness but it leaves the skin looking flat & dull.

                      It does KIND of help heal acne but I also use a nothing product with it. I put it on a spot if I'm not going anywhere and let it sit there.

                      It's very messy.

                      Better Than Retin-A for Stubborn Acne

                          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

                          This product, although it is annoyingly messy because it flies everywhere, even as you are applying it, works very well. I have a spot on my chin with very stubborn acne, which is what I used as my test area. I used Retin-A all over my face, as usual, but I skipped that one area and used the Healing Powder instead. Within two weeks, I could see the acne drying up and the area with far less bumps than usual. The price sure beats my Retin-A, and if it works on that tough chin area, surely it will do wonders for the rest of my face.

                          It's tricky, however, to figure out when to apply it since it's a powder that would be easily compromised if applied before other products. I have found that it worked best when applied over lotion but under and on top of foundation. I did not start seeing results until I applied it over my foundation. I had to play with it a bit to see what point in my regimen was the best time to apply it.

                              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.
