Find in Store-

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.

Great multi use product

By Anne

from Cleveland, Ohio

Pros

  • Minimizes Pores

Cons

  • Messy

Best Uses

  • Blackheads & Whiteheads

Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

This products instructions say to use it as a paste and leave it on for 10 minutes. It doesn't erase blackheads the first time, but after a couple weeks I have noticed a difference. However when I take this product off with a toner is is really messy and crumbles. This might be the case since it is a loose powder. I also like using this powder as a translucent setting powder.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

    Used a damp cotton ball and created a paste before applying. Removed with toner and saw a little difference in the blackheads on my nose, but not a significant change like in other reviews. Worked alright but probably won't be buying again.

        Works Great!

        By Jen

        from Illinois

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        I really like this product, it has worked well for me. Instead of using a dampened cotton ball, like suggested, I wet the end of a Q Tip and apply the product. This way makes for less mess for me and I can control what specific areas I want the product on.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        The best product for enlarged pores & blackheads! After 2 applications I see a huge difference. My pores are so much smaller & my blackheads are almost completely gone! I apply it only to my T zone. So far I don't see a difference in the amount of oil I have.

        didn't get the results i hoped for

        By ceg21

        from michigan

        Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

        After reading reviews for this product i was SO excited to try it! I've followed recommendations to apply a paste to the skin, rather than powder, and to remove the paste with a toner. I've tried this multiple times and did not see much difference in my pores after. This product did not irritate my skin and seemed to remove a small amount of blackheads so I think it would be worth a shot for anyone interested in trying it. However, this did not clear up my blackheads or give me the results I was anticipating.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Silver Powder:

          So I don't use the powder the way it's intended, I haven't tried it on my blackheads because I honestly don't have a lot of them. What I do have is pimples that sprout up randomly and take forever to go away completely, until this. I use this as a spot treatment, applying it and taking it off as directed, after my skincare routine and before my pimple cream (currently using lush's grease lightning, haven't tried any of MBs) but this stuff is awesome. These things go away SO MUCH quicker and without scarring. 10/10 would recommend!

              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.

          • 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?

              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.
