Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

This mask was part of the brightening kit that I purchased a month ago. I'm out of the mask and will be going back to the store for more.

I did not in my opinion find any issues with removing the mask from my face. I used a facecloth that I either used warm or cold water then I just placed the facecloth over my face gently patting it around my face. Removed the cloth and most of the mask was gone, I did have to do a little clean up around the jawline and the nose area but that was it. I have quite a bit of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks from using tanning beds in the past that I could never get rid of on my own, until using this mask. It has made the pigmentation really lighten up quite a bit in 30 days which I'm so over joyed because I have used countless different products of all prices to get rid of it and nothing EVER worked. It was getting to the point I was ready to go see a dermatologist for the problem to get rid of it. This product has saved me from doing just that and I'm ever grateful and thankful I tried this.

Helps

By Emma

from Washington

Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

I definitely notice a difference in my skin after using this. It reduces redness and the marks leftover from acne. This does contain beeswax, so it leaves a kind of waxy film on your face when you wash it off. That feeling goes away once you put moisturizer or anything else on. It's only four stars because it hasn't made my acne scars go away completely. But I will definitely repurchase.

Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

I love this product leaves my face really smooth and soft. I would've given this more stars but it's so hard to remove and leaves behind a white film after scrubbing. I literally had to wash my face several times to be sure I removed everything. Overall a great product

    I have several stubborn "sun spots" on my face and I had hoped this would help with. So far I have noticed a very slight lightening of some of those spots. I do; however, love how it leaves my skin feeling clean, firm & smooth.

    AWESOME MASK BUUUUUTTTT...

    By Val

    from California

    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    This was the only downside to mask, my face felt so sticky and weird like someone had just put a layer of petroleum jelly on my face. I didn't like it, but I assumed it was leftover product that I was supposed to let sit overnight so I did. When I woke up, I kid you not, I already saw a difference in my sun spots and uneven skin tone. I WAS AMAZED!! Overall great product just not a fan of the sticky feel

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      Really great facial mask, the only thing is that I can not moisturize after using this mask, but this is not a bad thing.
      the beeswax in this mask leaves a "shield" on your face after you rinse it off. Imagine water running down a window pain, that is how this mask rinses off. well after several uses, I have found it works best if I do not try to moisturize after using this mask, I just leave my face alone and let the beeswax do it's magic. If I put moisturizer on after this mask, my face gets too oily. the mask itself is super moisturizing and helps to balance skin tone at the same time.

      It's like Jesus tears for acne

      By Kay

      from Washington

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      Oh my gosh I adore this mask. I get really bad acne but I work as a personal trainer so I don't wear makeup on a day to day basis. I will apply this in the morning before I leave for work and it will bring down my redness by half. And with consistent use it can really help if you have acne scarring. Also it leaves your skin super soft and moisturized which is always a plush

        I have severe melasma and although I know there is no majical product that will get rid of the discoloration, I am looking for a product to help lighten it. I have been using this mask for about 3 weeks now and I have to say I have noticed a change in my skin tone. Again, the discoloration is there, but my skin seems more brighter. In addition, it has helped diminish old acne scars. I highly recommend this product!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

          I really wasn't sure about a product with "whitening" in the name because I already have very pale skin, but I got a free sample with my last Mario Badescu purchase and decided to try it. The first time I used it, I was a bit startled by how quickly it dried - after 5 minutes, it was dry and cracking, and I was worried that I had dried out my skin. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone, and most masks that dry and have to be washed off end up drying out most of my face. However, after washing off this one with a washcloth and warm water, I was surprised by how soft and bright my skin was. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I didn't experience any dry skin after using this. And, my skin looks really brightened - almost glowing. I really feel like it gave me a more even skin tone and actually lightened a couple of old acne scars, especially after using it a few times. I got 4 full masks out of the very small sample packet, so I think the price is very reasonable for the amount of product that you get. Highly recommend.

              A:

              We recommend holding off on using the Whitening Mask until your active breakouts have cleared up. The Whitening Mask does have a hydrating factor to it which may make any active acne worse.

              A:

              These areas of hyper-pigmentation will always be more vulnerable to further damage so proper sun protection should always be a priority to minimize the chances of them reoccurring.

              A:

              Acne Facial Cleanser should continue to be your main cleanser. 2-3 times a week, you can replace Acne Facial Cleanser with Botanical Exfoliating Scrub to polish your skin smooth. You can follow with your toner and moisturizer. You should use the Drying Mask at bedtime, on a clean face, 2-3 times per week to help control breakouts. Once you have no active breakouts, you can begin to incorporate the Whitening Mask 1 time a week to address the discolorations. Depending on how your skin allows, you can begin alternating using the 2 masks.
