Natural minerals like kaolin, calcium carbonate, and zinc oxide help purify pores and reduce stubborn blackheads. Excess oil, buildup, and pore-clogging impurities are drawn out, revealing visibly clearer, healthier-looking skin.
Dip a water-dampened cotton pad into powder-creating a paste-like texture-and press on the T-zone (focusing on the nose and chin area). Wait 10 minutes and remove by wiping off with a toner. To be used 1-2 times a week. Do not apply to eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      Was super excited for this product, however, it was a huge disappointment. I will be returning. I have used it two times and it is incredibly difficult to apply, and it flakes off EVERYWHERE even if you are sitting still, so you are left breathing in the powder. As for effectiveness, it did nothing for pores or blackheads. Simply dried out skin. Stick to other masks or pore strips for blackheads and save your time and money.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      Once applied, this product works great! The only problem is applying it to the skin properly. I do suggest pouring a portion out into a small mixing bowl, adding water, and turning the product into a paste that can be applied with a brush instead of trying the suggested way.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      I discovered this product on a thread about large pores and blackheads/sebaceous filaments. I have such a problem with blackheads/stretched out pores, it is hands down my biggest skin complaint. This product is holy grail, for sure! I purchased it yesterday and have used it once and already see a difference in my skin. It clears and shrinks pores like no other product I've ever used (although, from what I've read, the results are temporary). I will continue using this product, and I hope to see more improvement in my skin over time.

      great results!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      The application of this product is a bit messy and difficult but the results make it worth it! I don't know how it does it but this makes my blackheads seem to disappear! This is definitely more effective than any pore strip I've tried, and without any of the harsh ripping. I don't think the results are super long lasting but I'm still very happy with the product.

      I wish I didnt buy it

      By Tiffany

      from CA

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      I bought this about two months ago but I keep forgetting to use it until recently I wanted to step up my skincare routine. For the past month I've been using it once or twice a week and I noticed that my pores have been clogged which is exactly the opposite of what it claims to do. I've got more white heads, blemishes and more breakouts than I ever had before. Also this dries out the skin too, so if you have dry skin I recommend you not using this and I have combo skin. I really wish I used this sooner so I knew it would've caused my face to react this way because now I can't return it.

      Quick results!!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      I struggled with blackheads and large pores for a long time. I couldn't find the right product to get rid of those pesky black heads, but after applying this...almost all of my blackheads vanished! However, the way they suggest to use it isn't the best way. I mix the powder with a little bit of water to make a paste and then apply it to my troubled spots. Would buy again!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

      When I first used this product I didn't know what to expect. I had never used this brand before and purchased a kit w a few products I had heard good things about and this was in it. It's a huge pain to apply- BUT only if you follow the instructions! That way is goofy and wasteful w most of the product floating away as it's a very light powder. After some experiments I found that mixing a pinch of the powder w water to form a paste and then applying the paste to your skin works very well! It dries almost as fast as if you followed the directions and you get the product where you want it w out losing half of it! And after I removed it the first time, I honestly gasped aloud at how clear my skin looked. I use this on my very oily T zone, focusing on my nose. I have huge pores and blackheads are always a problem. My nose looked clear and bright and only a few larger pores/ blackheads were still noticeable but even then I had to squint and look for them. This is a game changer, it makes my skin look like someone else's better skin! If you adjust the way you apply it, it is the best, most effective product for large pores and oily skin w blackheads I have ever found. Considering how well it works it's also fairly cheap. I'm in love with this stuff.

          A:

          We recommend cleansing with your daily cleanser, then apply the Silver Powder. After 10-15 minutes remove with toner. You can then apply the toner on the rest of the face as well. Follow with moisturizer.

          Our Silver Powder is best suited for use 1-2 times per week on areas of blackheads. If you have blackheads on the cheeks, you can use this product there!

      • Q:

        I see a lot of people have posted that they use a blackhead porestrip after use of this product. I thought porestrips also stripped away the good oil from our faces though. I do notice after using the product, it helps bring oil to the surface but it doesn't completely get of the blackhead. Should I use a porestrip?

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          You could use a pore strip on an alternating evening so that even after rinsing, the Silver Powder that has seeped into the pores is allowed to work overnight.
