Mask Monday:: Mario Badescu Whitening Mask

Mario Badescu Says:: This hydrating mask will help brighten uneven skin tones and gently minimize the look of old acne scars and discolorations from the sun. Skin lightening, natural ingredients like Kojic Acid, Licorice and Mulberry make this mask gentle for all skin types. Contains no Alpha Hydroxy Acids making it safe and gentle for acne erupted or very sensitive skin.

 

Lara Says:: While you will look like the 5th member of Kiss this mask is great.  I use a mask 2-3 times a week and this one is used at least once of those 2-3 times.  I think several things I’ve been doing differently has improved my skin but I really think this mask has made a vast improvement on my acne scars.  Right after I wash it off I can tell my skin is noticeably brighter and it just feels nourished.  It is not tight and dry but balanced.
