          Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

          After reading several positive reviews about this product and the immediate results people have seen, I was very excited to try this mask out to help lighten uneven coloring and acne scars. Unfortunately, after two uses I did not see any difference. I realize that some products may take time to become effective, but I've used other masks from this brand where the results were immediately apparent. That leads me to the conclusion that this one just doesn't work for me. Also, the beeswax in the product leaves an uncomfortable film on my skin, as if it didn't truly wash off after repeated attempts.

            I have really sensitive skin and I have redness on my cheeks that I can't stand. This mask also makes the texture of my skin so nice and smooth. It leaves a weird film on your face but nothing a little face wash can't fix!

                        I use the whitening mask every other night and I have used it for two weeks now. I got it for my red acne scars because I read reviews that stated it helps with pimple scars. I have several on my cheeks because I wear a face mask all day at work and I wanted to correct my skin before my wedding day. My fiancé randomly told me last night that my skin looks much better now that I've used the mask. I will use this product from now on. My skin looks so so good and almost all my red acne scars are gone! I read a review that said you have to use the entire jar of the mask before you see true results...I've made it a goal to stick with using the product faithfully.

                          I have tried so many masks...clay ones usually dry my skin out, and other ones feel like they're doing nothing for my skin. This one somehow leaves my skin feeling moisturized and I really have noticed my skin texture improving over time (I use it 1-2 times a week). I don't have many acne scars so I don't know how well it helps fade those, but it is definitely helping my uneven skin tone. Love it.

                          • 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.
