    This product I got because someone told me about it. I have oily skin and very acne skin so I was hoping that this products will help. But I was using three weeks and my face looks the same, it didn't do nothing. I will never buy this product again.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

        I have been struggling with acne for over 10 years and it has increasingly gotten worse as I've entered my 20's. I wear makeup to cover my blemishes but my makeup would always be very shiny within 10 minutes of putting my make up on because my face was so oily. This kit controls the oil like magic. I saw a difference immediately and I have not had a shiny face since I started using it. My acne is gone yet but it is healing and I see less and less. I also use the pink drying lotion. I will be going back to get the full sized bottles of each of these. The kit has about 1 month's worth of face wash and the cucumber toner.

            I purchased this product in-store on a recommendation from the in-store aesthetician after trying another product line for the same thing. I was told this line was stronger than the first product line I had purchased and was good to use for hormonal acne. The mask has a very bad and strong smell to it due to the sulfur ingredients but it does work for the job it was intended to do. I liked the facial cleanser so much that after my kit was gone, I purchased the full size product. My face cleared up slightly but not as much as I was hoping it would.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit:

              I have tried many many products to treat my recurrent acne on my chin and forehead that can be anything from oil bumps to large cystic acne and Mario products really worked for me. I saw results within a week and am now trying the products to correct hyper-pigmentation and scarring. Went to Mario website and they do free skin consult and will send you samples of recommended products. If you are fed up with acne products, you have found an answer!

                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 :)

                      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.
