    I used this product in hopes it would improve the appearance of my skin. I have post hyperpigmentation because of acne but this product didn't do anything for me.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

        I rarely write reviews, but this stiff was awful. My face was super greasy afterward and the next day I woke up to a painful breakout. It seemed like it could have the potential to lighten discoloration... But so do a lot of other products without wreaking havoc on your skin. Big thumbs down from me.

            Before using this product, I had a few acne marks from previously touched pimples. It was something that was really bothering me and I've got to say that after using this whitening mask, the acne marks on my face are completely gone. It did take a few months to see significant results but it's definitely worth it. My mom even started using it and found that her dark spots have lightened so much on her face and she couldn't be happier.

                  I have acne scars and very acne prone skin so I bought this product to help and I used it 3 times a week for about a month or so and it did absolutley nothing. When taking the mask off my skin felt gross and sticky after it and it didn't feel fresh. I reccomened lush products, wayyyy better and surprisingly cheaper.

                    I was so excited to use this product after seeing so many rave reviews and youtube videos about it.
                    After one use (leaving it on for only a few minutes), I woke up the next morning with pimples in all of the places that i put the mask.. I shook it off and figured it was hormones making me break out.
                    I gave the product multiple hopeful tries and all ended up with my face being covered with borderline painful pimples.
                    I did some research and found this happened to a lot of other people too. I've never had a skin care product do this to me!
                    If you're one of the people who's skin doesn't react to this product in a negative way, you're lucky! :(

                      I struggle with acne and acne scars. I spent over $40 on a product from Murad only to have it irritate my skin more and leave a rash. I read about this product and decided to give it a go. Absolutely love it! My skin feels so bright and clean after usage, and my face feels so clear. One detail I would recommend is to use this product with Cetaphil daily wash. I use the wash everyday, and the Mario bases I whitening mark 3 times a week. Worth the price!!
