    Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

    I have been using this product for only a few weeks and I already noticed a difference in my skin. I was having really bad break outs which were uncharacteristic, but they have since gone away. Every now and again new pimples will pop up but not as frequently and they aren't as stubborn! One thing I love about these products is that they have very few ingredients in them! I am all about going green and using skin-healthy, non-toxic products.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

          I have been using this kit for several days now, and can see a slight difference in my stubborn acne. I have acne on my cheeks, chin and forehead, but the major areas of concern are the sides of my face/cheeks. I noticed after just the first use of the mud mask that my acne didn't look nearly as inflamed. And some of my angrier cystic acne looked less red/inflamed. Since using this kit I also noticed that my face has a glow to it and even though I still have my acne, my overall skintone looks more even. I know things take time, and I have only used this kit for a week. So I am holding out hope that it helps to finally clear up my acne. It has already helped to diminish the appearance of it. The kit is very easy to use and tells you when and how to use each product. I use the cleanser morning and night, and follow up with the toner. In the daytime I use the moisturizer right after, and at night I will first cleanse, then put on the mud mask (but only every OTHER night), and then tone. I don't use the moisturizer that came with the kit at night because it has SPF in it and that just seems sort of silly to use at night. So instead I have ordered some rose hip seed oil that I plan to use alongside this kit as my nightly moisturizer. The only con I have about this kit so far, is that the mud mask smells horrible - almost like wet asphalt. So maybe it would be best to put it on before you plan to shower. But that's not really a con as long it does its job, and that it does :)

          Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

          I got this kit a few days ago because my mom told me how she had heard good things about this brand. I have tried almost everything for my acne, including prescription medicine from my derm, but NOTHING works. I am 22 years old and can't remember a time since I was in my very early teens when I didn't have acne, so I was willing to try this kit. So far, I can't give any real results because it has only been several days, but I am noticing that it is very irritating/drying to my skin. I purchased the soothing mask separately but the texture was weird and didnt feel right going on and there was nothing soothing about it. As of right now, I can't really say I would recommend this kit or brand period for that matter.

            This acne line is very easy and affective. The face wash, the anti bacteria toner are amazing, keeps skin clear all day. The drying mask fights new acne same day!!! The drying cream is a very small portion though. Bought my bf one kit, and it kept his face clean all day.

            This stuff is amazing! Not only is it effective it lasts a while. I wasn't sure if I should purchase this because I hadn't seen a review on how long the products lasts and I knew the full size products would be expensive. I've had the products 3 weeks, and still have not run out. I noticed a difference immediately. I broke out this summer very badly and my old products did nothing for my skin, in fact, I broke out more. I began using this product and my skin cleared up within the first week. I noticed when a new pimple began to emerge by the next day it was almost gone and the day after it was like nothing was there (no scarring!). After a while new pimples stopped emerging all together. After loving these products for two weeks I bought more of the line. I bought the whitening mask and after only two uses my scars were fading already. I know people are often skeptical of 5 star reviews, I know I am. However, I am a person to give very honest reviews simple because I hate the 5 star reviews that sound fake. I found that I cannot give this any less than 5 stars. The only honest issue I experienced was that the drying cream really dried out my skin, but after purchasing a night cream the dry patches went away. These products really work. This kit is a great value and the other products are worth it. While the products are expensive, they are definitely worth the investment.

                I have tried so many products and there is nothing like this. I have been using this acne treatment for nearly 3 months now, twice a day, everyday. I apply the drying cream before bed. The old acne has diminished, the new is less frequent, and overall I am very, very satisfied.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

                Ive been wary about buying this product because it is so expensive. So for a while I've been researching, and idling. But I finally bought it, getting so sick of nothing working to stop my chin break outs, and giant cyst ance on my chin. I dont have it that bad, but ill have 2 cystic pimples on my chin and they are painful, huge, and dont seem to go away for about a month until they start to come back again. I bought this product 4 days ago, and I am seeing results! I am very excited. My cystic pimples that were in the process of healing have dried up and when the flaky scab comes off I DO NOT see a pimple or a new pimple starting I am very excited about that! And it is drying up a cystic pimple that is new. The redness around my chin is diminishing gradually. Its been only 4 days so I'm sure it will clear up even more at this rate. The drying mask smells strong, and has a bad odor. But I think its because of the sulfur. But despite the stinky odor, it is totally worth it if it can do that to my stubborn chin! I would say I have combination skin. I dont really have an oily face. I get pimples at my chin, and on the tiny fuzz hair folicles on the sides of my face. If you have small patches of tiny acne I'd say use a small amount. On big cyst or huge pimples use a little more. I dont have sensitive skin.
