Ask a Question
Restore balance to oily, problematic skin. Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask is a creamy, non-hardening mask infused with oatmeal to calm skin as natural minerals like kaolin and zinc oxide help absorb excess oil-making it a must-have for every regimen geared towards acne or troubled skin types.

Additionally, ingredients like biotin and olive leaf extract (both of which are nutrient-rich, antioxidant-rich, and hydrating) nourish and soften skin. This mask is perfect for use in between applications of Mario Badescu's Drying Mask to help soothe and lightly moisturize.

(2.0 oz.)
Apply a thin layer on clean skin avoiding eye area. Wait 20 minutes and rinse with tepid water. May be used 2-3 times a week or more often if necessary.

      I was hoping it would soothe my cystic-acne afflicted chin. It did not. I noticed no difference in redness or texture.

          I've only used it twice but it does make my skin feel softer and I'm not sure if it's just a placebo or my acne actually does look less red. Either way I'm liking it and hope to use it twice a week.

            My daughter and I have very oily acne probe skin and we love this mask. It doesn't make our skin break out and helps heal all those dry spots caused by acne products. I also bring this to the beach with me because it's great for moisterizing the skin when I've had too much sun. It's also great in the winter for dry skin caused by the cold. For routine use, I usually alternate this mask with the Mario Badescu drying mask. I also use it as a moisterizer on small spots that might need a little help healing.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask:

              OHEMGEE this mask is amazing! My skin is combination and although i hardly breakout with acne anymore (thankfully), I have been struggling with extremely stubborn blackheads for as long as I can remember. I've been searching high and low for the best masks/pore minimizing treatments and I have finally found it in this mask.

              First, I want to say that I have only used this mask once and literally just washed it off and HAD to write a review because that is how amazing my skin looks. There is a glow I have not seen since I was prepubescent.

              The way I used this mask was, first I did a facial steam with dried basil and lavender (this was my first time doing it in years, but all you do is boil water with a few drops of pure lavender oil, add a handful of dried basil from the spice rack and hover your face over the steam for 15 minutes). After the steam, I used an extraction tool to push out the blackheads around nostrils and cheek area just below the eye. A LOT of crud came pouring out.

              Next, I put this mask on for 20 minutes and after washing it off my skin is so soft and bright with a very distinct lack of blackheads.

              The directions do say to use a thin layer and that is very true. I like my masks thick so I used a lot of product and it took about 5 full minutes to wash it all off.

              I will leave you all with this - if you want bright, healthy looking skin I beg you to make this purchase. You will not regret it!

              • Sensitive skin

              Comments about Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask:

              This mask has been a life saver for me! I have Acne-Prone skin, and like any Acne sufferer, I use ingredients & products that can sometimes be too drying or irritating for the skin. My skin is generally oily, but can become very dehydrated and sensitive from the Acne products. This mask is seriously the best product that I've ever found to calm the skin, hydrate it, soothe irritation and breakouts all in one. It does live up to its name, it does heal and soothe.

              Something I am not proud to admit and know I shouldn't do - I have occasionally found myself having picked at my face, after trying to get rid of blackheads, and after relaizing that my skin would literally erupt in systic acne from being too harsh - I would put this mask on for like an hour and THANKFULLY - it would save my skin and there will be no crazy eruptions the next day. (Don't pick at your face ever, mask or no mask)
              Point is - acne sufferers know how easy it is for your face to errupt sometimes, but this mask does help in preventing that, if you haven't been gentle enough with your skin. It would be great after a facial or a peel.

              A TIP for REMOVING IT PROPERLY - yes it's true as others have stated that it's not easy to remove because it leaves a sort of a film on the skin, waxy texture, BUT - there is an easy way - just put a cotton ball under warm water, and go ahead and just swipe off what's left on your skin very gently. Kind of like you would use a cotton ball on your face to take makeup off for example. Just obviously, only use water and swipe. Or like some other people have mentionned- use a wash cloth. It removes easily. Just be gentle. And yes, sometimes I've even used 2 or 3 cotton balls because the residue is thick.

              Other than that, wonderful mask, and by the way - really good ingredients also. It's a staple in my skincare routine and I have been repurchasing over and over.

              Great for dry skin with acne. I find that most products dry my already dry skin out. This gets rid of texture and small whiteheads for me while giving me moisture.

              I've been using this for a year after receiving a free sample. It hydrates my skin. I love using it in between my other face masks. It is so gentle, not harsh at all. That's one of my favorite things about Mario Badescu products. This mask is perfect for sensitive skin.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask:

                This was an impulse purchase when my acne was getting worse along with irritation from treating it. I have skin that's not exactly combination, but varies from being dry to becoming oily. This mask is amazing, leaves skin plump, calm and nourished. Every time I see some redness or have burn-like sensations, I put some on that area without any fuss, leave for 10-20 min, and carefully wipe off with the damp washcloth. I also use it regularly every 2-3 days while treating my pimples. I think this will be the staple for me from now on.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask:

                  Recommended by Ulta consultant. Was seeking a hydrating mask for winter, this simply doesn't cut it for me. In addition, as many reviewers have commented, it's extremely difficult to 'rinse with water,' due to a waxy residue. However, I've found that it wipes off more easily with a very warm damp washcloth.
