    Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

    I struggle with acne and acne scars. I spent over $40 on a product from Murad only to have it irritate my skin more and leave a rash. I read about this product and decided to give it a go. Absolutely love it! My skin feels so bright and clean after usage, and my face feels so clear. One detail I would recommend is to use this product with Cetaphil daily wash. I use the wash everyday, and the Mario bases I whitening mark 3 times a week. Worth the price!!

    I use this after cleansing my face and exfoliating. I've been trying this for about two weeks I believe and haven't seen a difference but I'm still giving it a try since it's too soon. I just can't stand the smell, for some reason smells like medicine or idk.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

      I am half white, half black. I usually get a lot of dark spots on my skin from acne. For this product you just apply a thin layer on a clean, dry skin. Then leave it sit for 5-10 mins and rinse with warm water. You only use it about 3 times a week and in that first week I used it i saw results right away.

            So I started this whitening mask 1 week ago and I can say that I have seen a big difference. I had a horrible breakout a few weeks back so these scars that are fading are new scars, not old ones! I love the smell. It use it almost every day( supposed to use 2/3 times per week) and I keep it on for twice the recommended time, and have seen no side effects. It doesn't really irritate my current acne either. I would highly recommend.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Whitening Mask:

              No no no. I gave this product the benefit of the doubt because a skin specialist in the store recommended it. It leaves this beeswax feeling on my face. After washing it off my face it left a milky white as in paper white or chalk stain on my face. Mine you I am brown skin imagine it leaving that on other skin complexion. It's very very hard to wash of. I feel like was I rinsing my face forever. This company needs to go back to the drawing board with this product because it's a mess. Dollar store mask is probably better than this(slightly exaggerated) but you get the point.

                    Mario Badescu Whitening Mask will work on diminishing the appearance of hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage or old acne breakouts. It will also brighten your overall complexion but it will not eliminate a tan.

                • Q:

                  I'm interested in this line of skincare esp. the whitening mask, my question is I have some uneven skin tone but my face also is dry and a little dull I'm wondering which mask would work better the whitening or the enzyme? My main concern is uneven skin tone, but I do have sensitive skin. I would like to know which products in this line would work best to even out skin tone, reduce pores, & reduce wrinkles. And something to take away any dryness or dullness. My skin is dry in some places oilier in other places, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
