Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

I have sun damage, some minor acne scars and some discoloration. I use this mask once a week as part of a regime with the Mario Badescu glycolic cleanser 3x a week and the other days the enzyme gel and I use the glycolic toner 2x a day. I can't say if the mask is helping since I'm using multiple items but I can say it doesn't irritate my skin or dry it out. My skin does appear to be brighter after I wash it off though. It's very inexpensive so it's worth a shot.

wonderful mask!

By Emm004

Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

I use this mask two to three times per week for acne scars. It is the number one best thing I've ever tried. I used to use Proactiv's dark spot removal lotion and that never worked for me and it smelled horrendous. This mask smells nice and feels good on my skin. Other reviewers remarked about it being difficult to remove. I use a very soft washcloth (baby washcloths, to be precise) and warm water. Then I use a toner to get anything else that might have been left behind. This mask is really a dream come true for me. For those who have battled with acne and scarring, at least try this out. I had acne scars from 15 years ago that are completely gone now and it is also starting to fade the more recent and darker spots.

Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

I absolutely adore this mask even after one use I saw instant results on old acne scars and dark skin on the sides of my mouth. The smell is dreamy too, like grapes.

However, I'm starting to realize (after trying a few products from this line) that removal is impossible without cleansing the skin AFTER application. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and still looked like a ghost. So I cleansed my skin again after use and the white residue was removed.

Immediately I saw that my skin was brighter. My complexion looked so much better. I was amazed. I will recommend this for night use as the film from the wax will make foundation appear a bit cakey. But what's better than waking up to beautiful skin right?

Love it!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    My 1st time using, I noticed minimal stinging, but each time after has been great! A little product glides effortlessly and smoothly over my face without pulling or tugging. It dries over minutes silmilar to a clay mask, but without the exaggerated cracking and pain. I wash off easily with warm water and a cotton face pad. I noticed an immediate brightening effect and lightening of the hyperpigmentation on my brown skin. This product (came in the Hyperpigmentation Kit)sold be on the brand. Absolutely worth boosting your brightening routine with this!!

    Great product

    By Katherine

    from Sacramento

    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    When I got this product I was scared , because my face is super sensitive and breaks out easily. I had acne scars and redness around my cheek, the first time I tried it, my face was smooth and I could still see some redness but I didn't worry because it doesn't work like magic it takes time. It dried my face a bit but I slap on some tarte Marajuca oil over night and I was set to go. The second time I put on the mask my redness was gone and some acne scar lifted I was amaze, so don't be afraid to try this out. It comes in a somewhat small packing with 2.0 oz a little goes a long way.

    It's alright

    By katherinaaa

    from Memphis

    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    This mask smells really good, and when I remove it, my spots are less red. The residue many people say they are feeling is the beeswax in the product. The jar says it has beeswax to seal in the vitamins. I don't feel like the mask is difficult to remove, and I like the product, I can tell it lightens some spots.

          This was the first product I used with this line and I was extremely excited. It smells amazing and feels great on your face while wearing the mask. However, when you go to wash off your face, I felt I was taking multiple trips to wash my face off because it leaves a residue feeling. I wasn't pleased.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

          I have used this product for 3 months 2x a week to treat the acne scars i have on my cheekbones. I have seen some improvement, but its no miracle. I mostly love this product because on days when my acne-prone skin gets really inflamed/itchy/pimply i put the mask on and it soothes everything. After washing off, it kind of feels like a filmy layer is still on your skin, but I've chosen not to care about that, it feels moisturizing to me.

              A:

              We do not recommend using the Whitening Mask on your back. A better option would be the A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap to help fade acne scars over time and to thoroughly clean the area to prevent new breakouts from happening on your back, shoulders, or chest . If you do not have any sensitivity to glycolic acid, the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is another great option to break down build-up from skin’s surface, reduce minor discoloration and leave skin radiant and smooth. It may be used to wash your back 2-3 times a week.

            Can I use this as an overnight spot cream for specific scars or will that be too harsh on my face?

              A:

              We don’t suggest using the Whitening Mask overnight. The Whitening Mask will gently fade discolorations over time and will inhibit further discoloration. Apply to clean face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

              A:

              If you experience some discoloration, the most important recommendation would be to use a daily SPF 30 for protection against sun exposure. Using mild AHAs such as fruit extracts and glycolic acid will help to gently even out your skin tone. Hyperpigmentation and discoloration may take a long time to even out, so patience is definitely required.

              We suggest using Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 (if you are combination/oily) to hydrate and protect your skin for further discoloration, then using the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 2-3 times a week at night only to help promote gentle exfoliation as it evens out skin tone. Do not over use this product as it may over dry the skin; otherwise, this deep cleansing treatment will be very effective for lessening the appearance of old acne scars. Lastly, you could use Mario Badescu Whitening Mask 2-3 times a week for 10-15 minutes to help brighten the skin and help even out overall skin tone.

              Results vary since everyone's skin is different, so there is no specific time table, but if you stick with the product consistently, you should start to see a difference within a few weeks.

              It will reduce discoloration of acne marks or sun damage. It may slightly reduce the color of the freckles, if you are using it on that area.
