In my opinion, this mask is wonderful!. In four days this mask has reduced my post acne hyper pigmentation by over 60%. It is such a great feeling to get fast results as I've had these marks for over a year now.
I used this mask at night and left it on. I mixed some 15% glycolic acid gel with some whitening mask and spot treated over night. I have also been using the glycolic gel 3-4 days a week at night. Try this if your skin is used to glycolic acid, otherwise it may cause too much redness and irritation! Maybe in a few more weeks the marks will be completely gone....Patience is the key!
I really hope this information helps....

This mask is really nice for people who have acne scars. I don't think it does much for like dark age spots, but I do notice an improvement in my acne scars (even the really old ones)
I apply this once a week for about 20 minutes, and I do like the results so far. I have not broken out or had any weird skin reaction to this product (or any of the MB products) which makes me really happy! It says on the "tub" that you can use this 2-3 times a week, but I do find it a bit drying so I stick to once a week.

This masks does slightly reduce my acne marks. I use this once a week all over my face, and 2-3 times a week at night dotted onto the marks. It may not 100% remove dark spots but my face does look brighter after using it. It also helps to dry up pesky whiteheads and clear pores. It smells sweet and has a very strange consistency. The packaging is not hygienic, but I'm not too bothered since I wash my hands.

One of my favorite masks, does a great job at reducing my acne scars. Smells sweet, but not in an overwhelming way. I leave it on for about half an hour 2-3 times a week and wash it off with my Clarisonic. The price is good for what you get, though the packaging could use some work.

Great stuff!! If used as directed, it really makes a difference by reducing acne scarring. I only use it as a spot treatment for acne marks, I wouldn't recommend using this all over your face because it can be drying and the results will not be as noticeable. The ingredients are high quality, containing Kojic acid, Licorice, and Mulberry. The mask doesn't have any AHA's, which is important to me since my skin is sensitive and easily irritated from them. 2-4 times a week, I apply a quarter-sized amount to acne scars and let it sit for 10-15 mins, then rinse and wash my face with a non-alkaline cleanser. I find that if I don't wash after using the mask then bits of it are left behind. I've noticed that my skin looks clearer and more even since I began using this and the dark spots are not so noticeable. Prior to using it, my acne scars/spots were so severe that they were visible underneath full-coverage foundation. Now I don't worry about my scars showing through and I wear less makeup! Highly recommend, and it smells like fresh raspberries. The only con I have is $25 for 2 oz of product is crazy expensive!! A worthwhile investment though & I plan to repurchase.

I've never bought the full size of the mask, because its so expensive but I always get a sample of this when I order MB online. I don't have ance scarring, and I don't get dark spots from acne. However this mask really helps with redness and it makes my skin bright, even, and smooth. Will I ever buy the full size? I don't know. This mask tends to dry out (it can be revived with a little water) even in the small sample size. So I don't know if I'd go through then big one fast enough. Love this though!

This mask like all of Mario's masks are quite messy because they come in a jar. After awhile the product starts to get into the crevices of the lid grooves which is annoying. But anyway, this product did work for me. When I ran out of my 1st jar after seeing results of it evening out my skin-tone, I quickly went and bought a 2nd jar. But my results have plateaued. Maybe I'll give it a few months before buying another jar to see great results return back to my skin?

I think it smells great, like raspberries, and I feel productive when I use it (about once a week). Feeling productive is very important when it comes to something I obsess about as much as my acne scarring.
After 2 months, though, I cannot say that the results have been dramatic. Of course I don't have a control group to show how my scarring would look if I hadn't use it at all...
So, not going to make your scarring disappear entirely, but I think it helps a little, especially with new scars. So, if you are the kind of person who likes to be proactive about their scarring, and you are happy with any kind of improvement at all, and you like masks, and you don't mind spending the money (the price is not too bad, I think, generally the MB products are reasonable), go for it. I think that within a larger scar-fading regimen (which anyone going for this mask would probably have?) it does its part and helps to make a difference.
One note is that as you use the product up, it is best to keep the sides as clean as you can, as when the product is left in a thin layer on the sides (it is very thick and goopy, so the layer on the side can be quite thick) that layer becomes tacky and dry and cannot really be used.

I've been using this MB whitening mask for a while. I am currently on my second jar, and I absolutely love this mask. Most of the bad reviews I've read on this product are a result of people using it wrong, or people expecting it to work a miracle right away...which it won't. I use this mask at least 4 times a week, and I leave it on for about an hour. This product rinses away just fine, so dont let that stop you, all you need it warm water, and I also use a facial buffer when rinsing it off just to make sure all that residue is gone. Ive never had dark spots, but do suffer from red acne scars which this product has helped immensely with!!! It makes my face have a healthy glow, my skins texture overall after using this product is extremely soft, and my scars are about 70 percent gone, which for me is great. I can actually go without wearing foundation. Love MB.
