Review: Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum & Whitening Mask

Hello loves!  Mama's back with another review and this time, it's from Mario Badescu! Mario Badescu has been my #1 favourite acne destroyer brand since ages ago. A matter of fact, way back in the earliest blogging day, I reviewed my first ever Mario Badescu product, Acne Repair Kit which you can read all about it (here). 

*I thought I've posted this on Thursday but didn't realize that it got sent to draft -.-*


Starting of with the first product, as soon as I read the word 'Anti Acne' I was completely sold since its other acne products are amazing. Plus, the reviews up on Luxola website gave me a much higher hope that this will be my next 'it' product. They said it's a 'magic' serum that prevents the acne from coming and slowly reduces the amount of your acne. 

Comes in an almost transparent-yellow, the serum is said to keep them breakouts at bay with just a thin layer. It's a salicylic acid based gel that doesn't feel sticky at all or make you look greasy. However, the gel is really thick but what got me surprised at first was that the serum absorbed into the skin fast. I don't need to let it set or whatever. 


Second item is a mask! You know I love masks ;) My skin is really sensitive and every time there's acne, the scar will stay on my face for a very long time so I thought now that I have an Anti- Acne Serum to keep the acne at bay, why not top it off with a whitening mask that could lighten up my scars, right? Uhuks. 

Not only its hydrating but it also evens out the skin tone while reducing/fading the appearance of the acne scars and sun discolouration to give fresh and youthful-looking skin. It contains no alpha hydroxy acids so it’s safe and gentle even on acne erupted or the most sensitive skin. The texture is liquidy but it dries fast. I suggest you work on smaller part of your face at a time with a thin layer of the mask.

Now the moment of truth! 
Anti-Acne Serum:
It absorbs fast into the skin that you don't need to wait for it to set and it doesn't leave any greasy-looking skin after. The texture is thick but just with a tiny drop, it spreads all over the skin so you don't need much and you'll save a lot! Now, how does it work on my skin? Well to be honest, I'm quite disappointed with it. It completely blacks out all my expectation. Instead of eliminating them acne, it actually causes more breakouts and more acne to appear. Why eh? Does it happens to you or is it just me? Cause I really want to like it :/ 

Whitening Mask:
During the first application, I didn't know that it dries fast so I applied a few drops here and there and working on one section at a time and when I tried to spread other sections, the mask already dried leaving my face with ugly dots all over HAHA. Though it could get messy since the mask is very liquidy. Now again, does it work? This time, it does! It lightens my skin bit by bit and I honestly notice a few scars disappearing. This one is definitely my fave! Been reaching out for this one more than my other masks. Love love love! 
Dislamer: This products were sent to me for reviewing purpose but all opinions were my own and 100% honest.
