    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    I really wasn't sure about a product with "whitening" in the name because I already have very pale skin, but I got a free sample with my last Mario Badescu purchase and decided to try it. The first time I used it, I was a bit startled by how quickly it dried - after 5 minutes, it was dry and cracking, and I was worried that I had dried out my skin. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone, and most masks that dry and have to be washed off end up drying out most of my face. However, after washing off this one with a washcloth and warm water, I was surprised by how soft and bright my skin was. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I didn't experience any dry skin after using this. And, my skin looks really brightened - almost glowing. I really feel like it gave me a more even skin tone and actually lightened a couple of old acne scars, especially after using it a few times. I got 4 full masks out of the very small sample packet, so I think the price is very reasonable for the amount of product that you get. Highly recommend.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    I put this product on after cleansing and before moisturizing. I have only been using for a couple weeks but i can already see a huge difference in my old acne scars! The only down side is it dried out my skin and i have combination, oily in the t zone, dry everywhere else. So be careful and only use it once a week if you have veru dry skin. But thats the only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5. It really does work amd for the price you might as well give it a go! :) i will definitely be buying this again and again and again!

      I've never written a review in my entire life. After buying this product because of the amazing reviews I felt the need to write one. I've had acne scars since high school that are my biggest insecurity. I'm not lying when I say that after only two uses of this mask they are already disappearing!!!! It's a miracle. I thought I would have to get laser treatment later in my life but am so happy I found this product and don't have to! Plus it's not expensive! So worth it!!!

        I received a sample of this and I loved it so I got the big jar. So far so good! I really like how my skin feels after the treatment and it does appear less uneven in tone. It does leave a film on the face so I follow up with a cleaner then moisturize. Definitely now a part of my skin routine.

        I never thought I could benefit from a whitening product. Received a free sample with an order from Mario Bedescu and tried it !! Great results on my red blotches on my face, that lasted a few days , then you can repeat every few days as needed. The areas seemed to get lighter in color after continue use. I have very.....sensitive skin, but it responds well to most of the Mario products I use regularly and I do have my faves !! Great line !!

            I have had troubled skin for about 5 years now. I recently got my acne under control, but my face was completely covered in red and brown acne spots and scars, which somehow are even harder to cover up than the acne itself. I have heard great things about MB, so i did some research and picked up this bad boy. This stuff is magic. In just one use, I saw dramatic changes in my skin. I woke up this morning and literally screamed in delight when I looked in the mirror. I plan on purchasing more MB products for my new and improved skin!

                Mario Badescu Whitening Mask will work on diminishing the appearance of hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage or old acne breakouts. It will also brighten your overall complexion but it will not eliminate freckles.

                A:

                We recommend holding off on using the Whitening Mask until your active breakouts have cleared up. The Whitening Mask does have a hydrating factor to it which may make any active acne worse.

                A:

                These areas of hyper-pigmentation will always be more vulnerable to further damage so proper sun protection should always be a priority to minimize the chances of them reoccurring.

                A:

                Acne Facial Cleanser should continue to be your main cleanser. 2-3 times a week, you can replace Acne Facial Cleanser with Botanical Exfoliating Scrub to polish your skin smooth. You can follow with your toner and moisturizer. You should use the Drying Mask at bedtime, on a clean face, 2-3 times per week to help control breakouts. Once you have no active breakouts, you can begin to incorporate the Whitening Mask 1 time a week to address the discolorations. Depending on how your skin allows, you can begin alternating using the 2 masks.

                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.
