I tried the Drying Cream in 2010 after MUA suggested it many times. Oh boy, that was a bad experience. So bad that I didn't want to try another Mario Badescu product until now.
I'm so glad I did! Because the Mario Badescu drying mask is AWESOME. I have extremely oily, acne prone skin. The directions tell you to wear this for about 20 minutes but I sleep with it on! It's cleared up my acne for the most part & my skin feels so soft. Sulfur is a miracle ingredient. ;) I will definitely repurchase & I reccomend this to anyone with similar skin.

i don't think the smell of this is quite as terrible as people make it sound. yes, it smells faintly like tires and cigarettes and is the same texture as marshmallow creme. but, i think it does help my oily skin and doesn't break me out. it is hard to rinse but afterwards my skin texture does seem to be improved.

I really like this product. It does smell awful but it works great! I recieved it as a sample but I will definitly buy more when I run out. I shrinks my pores, eliminates the oilyness, and shrinks/dries up any zits, big or small. I've only been using this product for a couple of days and it's already showing results.

It was okay. I didn't notice any results that would make me purchase it again. Warning: it smells terrible!

This mask has sulfur and smells absolutely disgusting. However, I love it because it kills big zits before they surface. I do not use this as a mask, but as an overnight spot treatment. When I feel like a pimple is about to surface, I put this on overnight, and it usually will not erupt. If I wait until the blemish has started to surface, it takes two or three nights of treatment, but it will usually not surface, and if it does, it will have a very short, less ugly lifespan.

I received this as a sample & the smell is absolutely gross. The feel of the mask wasn't too pleasant either. I was expecting results from this mask after all the good reviews I've heard. It did nothing other than dry my face out.

It's an okay mask. I like it. I've used it several times before. Will I get it again? I'm not quite sure. It's expensive and it kinda reeks. It's not a miracle mask really. While it works alright I've used other cheaper masks that worked just as well. I like the other MB products more. Like the drying cream or the buffering lotion. They work a lot better at battling my acne than this mask does. Did the mask help clear my skin? It made my pores feel tighter, and it did lessen some of the blackheads. But any good mask does that I think.

This is not a miracle product, but I do use it from time to time whenever I sense a big acne about to surface. It won't cure anything overnight, but the whole point, I believe, in treating acne, is 'killing it on the spot'. I'm still looking for a dream serum/gel that will enable me to 'rub it into' my acne prone areas and prevent new zits from forming to begin with. Anyone who knows of one, please drop me aline. BTW, I'm allergic to BP (urgh!). ;)

Glad I only got a sample because this did nothing for me as a spot treatment, did not shrink or dry it up it just made my pimple more red and irritated. I prefer the drying cream over this and will not re-purchase. I have combo skin thats sensitive/acne-prone and would not put this on my whole face as its much too drying.

This is NOT a pleasant-smelling, relax-with-a-mask sort of product. It stinks like sulpher and pickels, and it is a pain to get off, but it works. I use this as a spot treatment, only applying it to erupted blemishes, as directed. I alternate this mask with one of the moisturized MB masks. Highly recommended, but be warned - beauty stinks!
