    Worst Mask

    By Meghan

    Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

    I decided to splurge and buy the Mario Badescu acne kit because I felt like treating myself. Unfortunately, I found out a few hours later this mask smells AWFUL. I was really hoping that after I put it on, I would get used to the spell, but I didn't. I have never used a product that smells this horrible. If it wasn't purchased with the kit, I would return it as fast as I could!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

    I love all my Mario Badescu products and use nearly exclusively the entire combination line on my face. My skin has never looks better! I gave this a try since the old mask I used is no longer available. I got one whiff of this stuff and questioned whether or not I should even slather it on my face. I did. It was nearly impossible to keep it on the full amount of time. I wiped it off on my upper lip but that didn't help. Even after washing my face twice and using a toner I could still smell this stuff. It smells like gasoline! Even though this product wasn't cheap, I will be throwing it out! The smell is NOT worth it!

          Way too drying. I always have an oil issue on my forehead and t zone so much that i have to blot my face at least 2 times a day. This was so drying. My skin felt so tight during the treatment. My skin afterwards was clean. I put lotion and it was fine. The product is fine... just not for me. I dont like how it feels on my skin.

          I actually received this as a sample when I bought something else, I quickly used it up and bought another one. I use it about twice a week and it really helps clear up my acne. It does smell horrible but after a minute i forget about the smell. Try this, you wont regret it.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

            I received this in the acne starter kit and as much as I would like to continue using it, it smells absolutely terrible. The smell is just unbearable. I wish I could continue using it, but I will stick to my Queen Helen Mint Julep mask.

              Typically I love this line of products. This has a very strong smokey smell. It is unbearable to leave it on your face. After rinsing the smell won't go away. I returned the product. Try the Whitening Mask instead.

                effective but honestly its hard to stand the smell. I suggest use on affected areas in small amount

                  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.

                        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.
