      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.

            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 is the best stuff ever! It will dry up acne like you wouldn't believe if you have cystic acne you know the ones that are big underneath the skin that aren't whitehead or black heads be sure to also get the buffering lotion as well put that on underneath this mask and it will get rid of them even on your back but leave it on longer for your back because its thicker skin. The only downside to this is that it is what it says it is it will dry out your face so moisturize but don't let that turn you off its a wonderful product

              After I wash my face I apply a thin coat to my entire face. The best use is also to apply to back and chest if you get break outs there. You MUST moisturize after using this product. Great price for how much you get and the amount you must use. Great product!

                The cream itself is easily spread over the face. It does not dry out the skin, and my face feels very soft after I get done using it. I haven't noticed a great decrease in the acne that sometimes pops up on my face though. Also, the smell is awful. As my ex said, it smells like dirty car oil. It truly is awful.

                    This is the first product that has successfully cleared my adult hormonal acne. For the first time in 3 years my face is clear and I'm not afraid to go outside of the house without makeup.

                    First off I love this product because it is extremely effective. With that said it does have a horrible smell and it's bad. Its like a melting tire smell. I had read reviews that said something about the smell but usually I find the smell fine with products they usually don't bother me but this definitely has a smell. However I still use and will buy again. I use it once a week sometimes twice. My skin is oily and acne prone. I get regular pimples and cystic acne this helps both but regular pimples helps the most. Sometimes cystic ones simply have to run there course but it does seem to shorten and even prevent. I find sulfur products work the best for my skin it's effective without overly drying and irritating. Love this stuff. I've been using with other Mario Basescu products and my skin has never been better. So happy!

                        I don't understand.. I read so many good reviews on this product and saw there were only limited ingredients in it so I thought I would be one of the ones writing a positive review. Unfortunately such is not the case. I used this mask once. First off the smell is extremely potent and smells like a mix of mud and old cigarette butts intensified times 10. While it was on my face the smell was so overpowering I felt like I was going to throw up. Secondly, after leaving it on the suggested amount of time and rinsing it off, it left my face red and irritated. And lastly, the following couple days I ended up with a rash of little pimples all over my face. Guess I'm one of those rare cases. I thought it was aweful!

                        Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

                        This would have saved me as a teen. I still struggle with acne, although not as much as I used to. I typically use this twice a week as a mask and then periodically through the week as a spot treatment as needed.

                        My skin usually dries out super easy, but as long as I use lotion after using this, I have not had an issue with reacting negatively to it. Since starting this, I have not had one major breakout. I will still get small problem areas, but no where near as large as it used to be! This has really saved my life and my skin.

                        It does have somewhat of a strong odor to it. I honestly don't mind it that much, but my husband makes me stay away from him when I use it because he hates the smell so much lol. But something as silly as a smell is not going to deter me from continuously using this amazing product in the future!
