    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    You'll use the product after washing and drying your face. Apply and leave on for 5-10 min, then rinse. Follow with your moisturizer. Use as directed for at least one week an you'll see the difference. The only issue is being consistent. S/N try to keep the seal on to help keep the product from drying out too fast.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      I have a lot of dark spots and acne scars on my face, and I wear makeup everyday to cover them because I basically gave up on having nice skin. I saw the raving reviews for this so I decided to give it a try, and I am so glad that I did. I saw results after using it one time! I use it basically everyday and it has made such a difference for me, and has made me much more comfortable with not wearing makeup 24/7. I never leave reviews, but this product has been so beneficial for me.

      miracle in a jar!

      By Liz

      from Oregon

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      I can't fully express how much I love this mask. I've had acne for years and a bad habit of messing with my bumps which of course causes the scarring. I've spent so much money trying to find a foundation to cover my dark acne scars that cover my face and when I saw this product I thought it was too good to be true however the great reviews and the fact that at the time this was on sale was enough to make me try it. I'm so happy I did. It's more than just having clear skin. I've had the worst confidence in the past because of my terrible scars but since I started using this two months ago I can't express the gratitude I have for whoever made this. If your wondering if it works or if it will help with really bad scarring the answer is yes! My scars are so faded it still shocks me every time I look in the mirror. I will repurchase this over and over again.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

          Contrary to other reviews this is NOT hard to wash off - although I do get why people would say that. I was looking for a product that would reduce my red marks and scars from old acne issues. I was going to buy one from Neutrogena but the overall reviews for this one seemed good enough to try it out. The only thing people kept saying that was making me worry was that it was hard to remove. Well, It does dry pretty quickly when you apply it (so don't mess around) and it tightens up your face quickly (so if you're a happy smiling person - forget about it for 15 minutes or your mask will crack). So you let it sit for the recommended time of 15 minutes and head to the bathroom to remove it. IF you have ever had a drying face mask on before or gotten a facial before you know that it's best to wet a wash cloth or hand towel (either hot or cold water) and then lay it over your face and press it in to release some water on your mask. This will help you easily remove the product. If you tried to do it with just water and your hands it would probably take FOREVER which I'm sure is why the bad reviews from so many about it being difficult to remove. But if you do it with a towel or wash cloth - it's easy. And after the first use (in the evening), my skin felt soft and the next morning my red spots were slightly less prominent. I use the product as a spot treatment just on my red spots & problem areas almost every night and I do my entire face the recommended amount of 2-3 times per week. So far, I'm VERY happy I spent the extra money and purchased this. I love it.

            I was looking for a product that wasn't too expensive to help with my acne scars and discoloration. After reading reviews I decided to go ahead and try this product... OMG this product gave me immediate overnight results. My skin was brighter and I can even see the darkest acne scars I had lighten up after one use! So far I've been using this product every other night ... It does not break me out and is gentle on my sensitive acne prone skin. HOLY GRAIL skincare product

                A:

                Glad the Acne Starter Kit is helping! Once you are free of active acne breakouts, you can begin to alternate using the Whitening Mask with the Drying Mask. The Drying Mask will address the pores and the Whitening Mask will address the old scars.

                A:

                Mario Badescu Whitening Mask is recommended for ALL skin types, but it does have a hydrating effect. If you have oily skin, you might want to skip any moisturizer or night cream on the night you apply the mask. When the mask is used all over the face, it provides a brighter (not whiter) complexion.

                A toner is a cleansing liquid that is applied to the skin with a cotton pad. It helps remove any residual traces of the mask left on your face after rinsing with water. You may want to try Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion (Item #: 2210016).

                Depending on the amount and type of minor skin discolorations you have, one should expect to see results within a few weeks of regular use. This would typically be during the first jar.
