Most Helpful Positive Review THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZINGGGG
This product is great ! I've used several other products and can't seem to find one that gets rid of acne scars, current acne, and overall brightens your skin& smooth texture as well, this stuff is magic- been using for 3 months and all my scars are gone
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for active acne
I was sadly disappointed with the Whitening mask. I love MB products, but this one made me break out horribly. I don't even know if it helped my dark spots/acne scars because I had to stop using it. After washing off, you can definitely feel the beeswax residue left on your face. Whether it was the beeswax or another oil in the ingredients list, this mask left me with deep, big, and painful nodules on my face. Highly recommend for those with sun damage or age spots, but for acne marks and active acne, definitely not for you.
Reviewed by 363 customers Best all around mask
Carrington from Baltimore, Maryland
I originally bought this mask for its "whitening/ brightening" feature. However, now it is my most favorite mask because it does much more than that. This mask does whiten and brighten, but it's also a deep cleansing mask that is very gentle to the skin. I usually let it completely dry before I wash it off. Once the mask is rinsed off, the skin is so supple, smooth, and fresh......you'll fall in love with the results!
I've been re-purchasing this for years
Mae from Tx
I started using this back when I had oily skin and suffered from severe cystic acne. I would use it whenever my skin was particularly irritated and this mask would calm my skin down without drying it. After going through acutane my skin type leans more dry and I still swear by this. It leaves behind a sort of film so I use it at night. It's not an oily film but more of a stiff layer of moisture that visibly calms my skin after every use. The next morning My skin is always soft, and it will take care of minor acne spots for me as well.
My new fave.
Cy1a from St louis
After using this product I felt confident enough in my skin to wear no makeup around a guy I like. Evened out my skin tone. The redness I usually have went away. Felt so soft and all around looked amazing.
Love this as a spot treatment
Justeen from Phoenix
With this product you need to be consistent. It says 2-3 times a week. I use as a spot treatment every night after I apply my moisturizer. I was shocked with how brighter my skin looked. I first started using it in the day since I work remotely as a face mask and I saw read results all over. So I figure I will use it at night to help face acne blemishes and it's been working. Yes it does leave a greasy film on skin when applied as a face mask so using as a spot treatment works better for me and I'm using consistently and that's why I feel I'm getting results. I started using in August and I will be repurchasing this product. It all depends on your skin I have oily combination acne prone skin. This may not work for everyone but every product isn't for everyone.
Pores look great
Amanda from Illinois
This is honestly the best. This was the first product I ever purchased from Mario Badescu and I'm on my second container and my boyfriend begged me to get him one for his birthday. It does take a little bit of getting used to in the application and can be messy, but that's with really any powder face mask. By the first you see you will see results and my pores look cleaner and smaller. Love this mask
Didn't do anything
AmyK from Wichita, KS
I've been using the product several times a week for several weeks now and have not seen a difference in my skin. Purchased to help lighten some dark spots I have gotten from acne. It hasn't dried out or made my sensitive skin red, havnt experienced the waxy after affect some are saying, and the product has not dres up in the jar. It simply just hasn't done anything for my skin.
Lena from Charlotte NC
I have melasma. I use this mask 3 to 4 times a week because I am a dog trainer and I spend a lot of time outdoors. Along with sunscreen and some products from the Ordinary my skin looks the best ever. I am certain this mask is a major contributor.
I would never buy this again.
Lolo from IL
I will never usethis product again and would like to have a refund. I have had it less han a week.
Noticeably lightens dark spots!!
Olive and oily skin gal from Dallas, TX
I've had this product for a few months now and would definitely recommend! The way I use it is but dabbing it on dark spot I want to lighten, and after 3 or so uses the spot is completely lightened to where it's almost not noticeable at all!! This product is amazing! I've tried MANY other dark spot treatments and this is by far the best one and not too expensive! Also, my jar has not dried up like other complain. Will repurchase when I run out but looks like it will last me a while!
This product is amazing
Em from Orange CA
I had a lot of redness and scaring from acne before and this mask has helped so much. I use all of these products. The cleanser gel, the scrub, toner and night scream and my face has made a huge improvement! I have no problem at all going anywhere without makeup now. I love this brand
Not good for sensitive skin
A from NYC
I have sensitive skin and I bought this to brighten up around my chin area, but as soon I couldn't even finish applying to that small part of my face because it started to burn and it was such a thick consistency that it took a while to actually remove it all.. I washed this off so fast and it still left hives on my face
mari from USA
this product gave me cystic acne literally after one use.
I love this product!
Chelsea from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania
I love this product and I also own a few more Mario products and this is by far my most used/ favorite.
Waste of money
Fizz from Ny
After reading reviews, I was excited to try this however this product sucks and it does absolutely nothing to help my skin. Save ur money
Saira from Florida
I been using this product for long I loved it❤️❤️
Eric's Wife from Blue Ridge
Great for hyperpigmentation! Years ago while struggling with hormonal acne I order a set and this was a product in the set. From the set this is what I keep coming back to. What I like to do is do a scrub mask, or an acid mask...rinse, and then put this on. When you rinse this it does leave a type of film on your skin, so I would reccomend doing it at the end of the day. I dont mind the film because I feel it locks in the good stuff. The next morning I do notice a slight difference in the hyperpigmentation. Really good mask.
Gave me a BAD breakout
Emily from Albany, NY
I swear by MB products and was excited to try this to help with redness (mild rosacea) I experience on my cheeks, but unfortunately it made me break out really bad. I get small pimples here in there but generally am acne-free. This product gave me some painful cystic pimples in my T-zone that I haven't had since high school, as well as lots of deep pimples on my cheeks (where I normally never get any acne). It definitely leaves a waxy residue after washing it off well, so maybe that was a contributor.

Mario Badescu is just TRASH
AJW1 from Ohio
I bought this based on glowing reviews to help with acne marks. I noticed that it doesn't rinse off the skin AT ALL, it just leaves a waxy film, and I broke out horribly. I even rewashed my face afterwards, but it doesn't help much. I used it twice before getting back on here to look at the listing more closely; turns out is has MULTIPLE KINDS OF WAX AND MINERAL OIL in it. I don't understand how anyone's skin can tolerate it. This is just not skin friendly, and is basically the definition of comedogenic. I read the ingredients of several other Badescu products (including others that didn't work for me) and it seems they're packed with every terrible ingredient from oxybenzone to parabens. I'm throwing out whatever Mario Badescu products I have left, there are too many other good products out there to use this trash.
Genuinely works for me
bkb213 from Los Angeles
Brightens my uneven, dark spotted, red, dry skin immediately after using.

and i never write reviews
Laura from Kentucky
I bought this mask over the summer after I got some hyperpigmentation on my face from the sun. This mask leaves my skin so moisturized and smooth. It's also dulled the darkness so much, I can barely see it now. Lately when my skin has been feeling dry I use this mask. It makes my skin look/feel SO MUCH better.
Magnolia from Littleton Colorado
I love it mask. It truly brightens and hydrated my skin. Helping with texture and my appearance of scaring. It makes my skin feel and look amazing. I use this mask about 3x a week. My only complaint is not about the product but the jar packaging. I found even though I use this regularly, due to it not being in a tube it dries out right as I'm about to finish it.
I can feel it working on the first try
Kimmie Bev from San tan Valley, AZ
I love the fact that i can feel the mask working since the first application.I also like the moisturizing feeling it gives me when i wash the mask off.
Great for redness!
Maddi from ID
I've been using this mask for a few months and it has really calmed down my redness, it isn't totally gone but it has improved a lot. Doesn't do anything for my acne scars which I was hoping it would.
