Mario Badescu

Whitening Mask

2.0 oz Item 2209901

This is a skin-perfecting mask specially formulated to address discoloration and dehydration. A unique blend of kojic acid and extracts of licorice root, mulberry, and grapeseed help minimize the look of age spots and other areas of uneven skin tone. Olive leaf extract and vitamin E nourish as beeswax locks in essential vitamins and nutrients-leaving dull complexions bright and hydrated.
Apply a thin layer of mask on clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Wait 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with water. Use 2-3 times a week for best results. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water. Not recommended for use on acne-prone or acne-erupted skin.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

        I am in my mid 20s and still suffer from terrible acne outbreaks. I also have a tendency to scar easily, so even when my face is not broken out the scarring makes it look like it is. More so than noticing a difference in my scars, I feel like the day after I use this mask, whatever zits I previously had either decrease tremendously or disappear completely. I haven't been consistent enough to notice if my scars are improving, but when my outbreaks are getting out of hand I use this mask and it always seems to help me. I always want to have this mask on hand for those days that my skin is being stubborn.

          I have used the mask for 10 minutes every two to three days for almost three weeks and am definitely noticing smoother skin.I can not yet notice dark spot lightening but expect that will come with continued use. No dryness or sensitivity to the product.

            Last year I struggled with some breakouts and sadly I am a picker, so I was left with some ugly little pimple scars in certain areas of my face. I started using this a few months ago 2-3 times a week and it's had an amazing effect in reducing their appearance! It's a must-have product if you are trying to fade pimple scars. They're not completely gone yet, but they've faded significantly. I have sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts and this mask hasn't caused any. It's a bit difficult to wash off but I usually use a toner right afterward and that takes care of any residue. Then I finish with a serum and moisturizer and my skin feels amazing in the morning!

                Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

                I purchased this product primarily for lightening stubborn acne marks on my face - and being that I am of a darker complexion (Afro-Caribbean) I was worried about it leaving lighter spots on my skin. Thankfully such wasn't the case! It's a week later and my complexion is a flawless sun-kissed brown. I'm curious as to if it'll work for my bikini line lol... I'll be sure to leave a review for that as well in the coming months.

                  I use this product as an overnight spot treatment! I had a cystic pimple by the corner of my nose and it left a really dark mark ! That happened in Mid July and By Mid August the mark was gone! Use this before you go to bed and continue the use of it every night. If you're home one day and have no where to go and just doing some house cleaning , leave this on and ya skin will love ya!

                    I've used this mask twice now and I've really enjoy it so far but removing it is a bit difficult. No matter how many times I try rinsing it off, there's a filmy white-ish layer that is left behind. Is that normal? Or am I not removing it properly?

                      Apply a thin layer of mask on clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Wait 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water. To ensure the mask is thoroughly removed, after removing the mask with warm water, follow with your favorite toner on a cotton round to help remove any excess mask.

                      Our Whitening Mask will help reduce discoloration from dark spots, sun spots or acne scars, however this product is not recommended for use on acne prone or acne erupted skin. Instead our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used 1-3 times per week depending on your skin type to reduce discoloration from acne scars. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753
