      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

      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.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder:

      I bought this product on a whim, needing something to reduce redness and oiliness. I'm not sure if it heals any of my problem areas, but i do think it does a decent job keeping oil at bay and calming my skin. I haven't used this with makeup, preferring to use it on days I don't wear any makeup or even before bed. I think it'd be most helpful to apply under foundation, but I use liquid so I don't like the idea of applying a liquid over a powder (even though it does absorb well).

      I knocked of some points because the packaging is awful. The puff it comes with is pretty much useless. Instead I use a random fluffy face brush to apply the powder where I need it. The container also dispenses too much product, and unless you kept the puff or used quiet a few cotton rounds, there is no way you could travel with this product because it would spill all over. As it is, even with the puff, you end up spilling a bit just when opening the container. I wish I could give this a 3.5...to me it IS better than your average powder but 4 seems a little generous. Like I said in my title, I do like it, but I'm not crazy about the idea of repurchasing it.

        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.

                    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!

                          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.
