        Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

        I love this mask, it really helps breakouts and keeps new ones at bay. I don't have oily skin, so I can only use this mask 3x a week max, otherwise it will dry out my face too much. Great for oily skin types though!
        I use this mask with MB's Buffering lotion, before applying the mask and after washing it off. My skin is so soft after washing off the mask and I love that it's so effective! My skin hasn't been this clear in years!
        I will say the only con with this mask is the smell. But honestly, the results are worth it.

            This mask smells AWFUL but it really works in drying up big pimples. I use as a spot treatment and apply with a cotton swab so I don't have to actually touch it!

            I use 2-3 times a week and only if I see the beginnings of a breakout. Alternate with the Healing and Soothing mask so that your face doesn't start flaking off.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

              I love this mask. My skin is super oily, Before i started using this I would wash my face or take a shower at night and the next morning my face was super shiny. Now it doesnt get oily as much or as fast. It is a little hard to wash off even with the warm water. I guess the only bad thing I've read about this mask is the smell but to be honest I dont mind it too much. (I think it smells like mudd and cigarettes) I love this brand I also bought the acne cleanser and silver powder and I live them. Will definately buy again.

                Does the job if you have oily skin

                I use this product about 3 times a week. I have very oily skin, and this product is wonderful to keep it under control. Okay, the smell takes some getting used to, but once you realize how well it works, you won't mind. I am thrilled with this entire line so far and I keep trying more products. I have been very pleased with everything. Pricing seems reasonable for the results.

                I love Mario Badescu's skin care line. I have never found a product line that works so well for acne. But this mask....I can't handle the smell. It smells like a giant ash tray and it took everything for me not to gag while this product was on my face. It works very well, don't get me wrong. I just honestly could not do the horrible odor.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

                  I love Mario Badescu products. My cleansing routine consists solely of their products so I was excited when I was given a sample of this drying mask. I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager. I have combination skin but it is very sensitve and dries out or gets excessively oily very easily. I read reviews about the product before using it so was prepared for it to smell very bad. I went for it anyway and smeared a thin layer all over my face. It definitely smells but it is not so bad as to make you gag. If you can tolerate a slight smell for 20 minutes it won't bother you. It was easy to rinse off but my skin felt a little tight after. I used my night-time moisturizer and felt fine. However, when I woke up the next morning I had dry spots on my face. I realized very quickly that this prodcut was drying out my skin. It actually dried me out so much that I started to break out more than I was prior to using it. I tried it a couple more times just to make sure it was this product causing my skins reaction and it was. Sadly, I will not be using this product anymore.

                    Amazing product ! I received a free sample of this and it worked wonders and zapped all my surfaced pimples!! Cant wait to buy the actual product but im still using the free sample and lasts a LONG time !! Although it smells odd it does a great job of getting rid of pimples as a on the spot treatment

                        I tried this drying mask as part of the Acne Kit and I am in love with it. I use it every couple of days and it's one of the products that I brought the full size.

                            This mask contains Kaolin clay, which does stiffen as it dries. To prevent this effect, you can mist or dab your face lightly with toner during the 20 minutes you leave the mask on. Keeping the mask damp on the skin will prevent any stiff or tight feeling, and it won't compromise its efficacy.

                          I used tarte under eye cream and developed bumps under my eyes. Not an allergic reaction just noticeable bumps. Will this help erase them or will I have to try another product?

                            You may be describing milia, which can be treated by a dermatologist or licensed aesthetician. A gentle exfoliating product could also help, but be very careful while applying to avoid getting the product into the eyes and causing irritation.
