      Does the job if you have oily skin

      By Finster

      Comments about Mario Badescu Drying Mask:

      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.

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 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.

                        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.

                          Mario Badescu Glycolic Eye Cream (Item #: 2209796) is formulated with glycolic acid to provide gentle exfoliation of the eye area to improve skin texture and tone of the delicate under eye area. This product could help:
