    I got a sample of this product and fell head over heels for it. So I just purchased the full size a few days ago. I use it 3 times a week and I can already tell a difference. Its really helping my acne scars. It also helps moisturize my face.

      Loved it! I use it 2 to 3 times a week, and have noticed it brightens my skin overall, reduces the look of my dark spots from acne, and my skin is super soft after.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

        I purchased this product for acne scars and dark marks, but it has not helped heal either. It hasn't done any harm either, but there's no point in it if it doesn't help the problem. I will not be purchasing it again. Maybe it's just my olive skin tone that it does not work well with, I'm not sure. Another complaint is that it is not the easiest to wash off. You really have to scrub your face.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

          I have been self conscious about the acne marks on my face for around 10 years now. I have tried every product I could possibly get my hands on, including painful peels and needle rollers. The combination of MB's glycolic cleanser and this tub of gold they call the Whitening Mask has completely changed my skin. It arrived at my house on January 2 2017, and my acne scars have already faded by A LOT. It has also evened out a great deal of the texture that I also had on my face. I literally cannot believe that this was all I needed. I highly, highly recommend this for anyone suffering with any type of left over acne marks anywhere on their face or body. This is my holy grail for life.

            I read all the good reviews on this mask and decided to give it a try. I finished the bottle this week and noticed that this mask did absolutely nothing for me. I was hoping it would brighten my skin and dark spots from acne but it didn't. My face never felt clean after it because this mask is so hard to take off! Even after my face is clean, some oily residue still remains on the skin. Also, instead of it brightening my face, i felt some of the white residue was left on my face. Maybe that what they meant by "whitening". Literally.

              I absolutely love this product! I had acne from years ago that left dark marks on my face, and I could never get them to go away no matter what I tried. I decided to try this product, and I am SO thankful I did! I used it probably about every other night (more than is recommended I believe), but the product lasted me a long time and my goodness did it work!! I saw my dark marks lighten after only a few uses, and now they are completely gone! I recommend this product to all of my friends who have similar problems, and I would do the same for all of you!

                  I don't have any acne/ dark spots. I am on the other hand fair and very red in my cheek area. The redness isn't caused by any type of irritation, its just there. Will this help at all with evening that out? If not could you please recommend a mask that would reduce redness? Thank you.

                • Q:

                  I use tretinoin cream nightly for acne. However, I do NOT currently have acne eruptions on my face since I've used the cream for over a year. Can this mask be used while I'm using tretinoin? I've read similar questions about the use of this mask in conjunction with retin-a topical gels and creams, but the brand expert who has answered them mentions that the mask is not recommended for active acne breakouts; I want to highlight that I do not have current eruptions. I'm curious if the tretinoin cream alone would make this product incompatible with my current skincare routine.

                    A:

                    The Whitening Mask uses gentle, natural ingredients to help brighten the skin. These ingredients should not interact with your tretinoin cream. Usually we don't recommend it for use with active acne as the mask does have a hydrating quality to it and we would not want it to make any breakouts worse.
