Good product but not quite effective for lightening age spots&blemishes
I love the way this mask smells as it’s not overpowering, but just light enough to give off a faint botanical/fruity fragrance reminiscent of raspberry and cream. I’ve used this product sporadically over a period of one year and although it definitely made my skin feel super soft after each use, it didn’t really lighten any of my age spots or old acne blemishes. I probably would not purchase it again, although I do love several of Mario Badescu’s other products.
My skin just didn’t love it.
So I purchased this from Ulta. I gave 3 stars becasue some of the ingredients are known to aid with hyperpigmentation issues, far as I have researched, however, everytime I apllied this to my face, the next day my skin would be broke out. One or more bumps exactly where I put it at and when I break out, guess what happens even after the pimple is gone…more hyperpigmentation that lasts for months… YAY… I think I tried it twice and each time like clock work my face rejected it. I’m not sure why…in fact, this isn’t the only product from MB I have tried and woke up with new breakouts from.
Let me first say that the Mario Badescu Whitening Mask smells heavenly!!!! I got it to help lighten some of my acne marks and hyper pigmentation. I am not exactly sure how well this works. I don’t use it as I should (I use it only once a week as opposed to the 2 to 3 times they recommend.) Hopefully it will make a difference. I do have to say that if you do not follow this mask with either a scrub, or just with re-washing your face, it might make you breakout like it did me. Overall it was worth a try, and hopefully I will see some results!
did not work for me.
i used it up religiously and the freckles on my face are the same. Waste of money. Bought mine at Sephora. I wish I could get my money back.
I used to have lot of acne scars. But after I started using this mask, they’re fading away. The condition of the skin is great too. Love it.
