    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    I bought this back in December and I was a bit disappointed. Their enzyme mask is just amazing and blurred red spots on my face so I expected better results from this mask! It definitely did nothing for redness and I didn't notice my dark spots looking any different plus it would dry out my skin too much (I have combination skin). Maybe just too much for me.... It did smell really good tho!!

      I have uneven skin from sun damage over the years, I was looking for a product that would brighten my skin and leave it feeling great! I love this product, I like to use it after being on the boat all day and i also use it a couple times week. It evens my skin tone and lightens my dark spots.

      I LOVE this product! This is my first purchase of Mario Badescu products and I will certainly purchase again! My acne scars have always been an insecurity of mine and I searched high and low to find something to help get rid of them. I was hesitant to purchase this product because I didn't know much about the brand but I came across it online and figured I'd give it a shot. My acne scars have since faded immensely, to the point where I feel confident going out with no face make up on! Definitely recommend :)

      FADES NEW DARK SPOTS FOR SURE

      By Nai

      from Los Angeles

      About Me Brand Buyer

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      It has been one week (7days) since I have purchased this mask. I work from home and decided instead of using it as directed I would use it as a spot treatment. With a Q-tip I massage the cream in a circular motion on the spots I want to lighten and let it dry. I have literally done this all week wearing it all and and reapplying it after cleansing my face before bed. Beware: If you wear it to bed it will flake off a bit but for the most part stays on. You will see remnants of this on your pillow. My dark spots have faded. They're still visible but lighter. My dark spots were new (two weeks old) I am a black American woman with a hazelnut complexion. Two more weeks of the mask and I should be in the CLEAR :))

        I've been struggling with acne for almost two years. I have tried many different products and a few home remedies, but sadly it didn't really show any improvement. I just bought the Mario badescu whitening mask and overall it's good, I can see my acne scars fading and my redness are also being reduced.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

        I have dark spots from acne. I use this about once a week, and it's taken a couple months, but my dark spots have started fading, while still leaving my freckles, which is great! It's a very thick texture, so I apply it with a brush, let it sit for about 15 minutes (which is longer than the recommendation, but it's what works best for me), and then to remove it, I get it wet and use a silicone brush head on my face washing brush thing. Don't get it in your hair. It's a pretty strong smell, so use it sparingly under your nose, if at all.

          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.

              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.

                  The Whitening Mask does help gently minimize the look of old acne scars and discolorations from the sun. The mask is gentle and hydrating. Since the mask is hydrating, we do not recommend using the mask on active acne. If your current mask is keeping your breakouts at bay, then you should alternate usage between the 2 masks every other night.

                  A:

                  Whitening Mask is generally recommended for application on your entire face, as it will help provide a brighter overall complexion. However, if you do have acne prone spots that may be aggravated by a hydrating mask, it would be perfectly acceptable to apply the mask to select zones only.
