Miracle Mask

First of all, let me say that I am EXHAUSTED. The Olympics are killing me. I DO NOT understand why they have to be on until 12:30am. Ridiculous. I have been so tired all week. Tonight, I am determined to get some sleep.

In the meantime, let me rave about my latest find: Mario Badescu Drying Mask. The last two months, my skin has decided to act like I'm 16, not 26. I have been breaking out a ton around my chin. Very annoying.

I decided to try this and I am seriously impressed. I have been using it every other night. Let me warn you, it smells very potently of sulfur. But, totally worth it, especially on cystic acne (the deep kind that swells up and just sets up camp for weeks.) You are supposed to use it in combination with the Buffering Lotion, applying it before and after the mask.

The mask has completely calmed my skin down and speeds up the elimination process of those big, cystic breakouts (which apparently are hormonal when around the chin and jaw.) I still use my MB Healing Cream too, and a very mild cleanser so as to not dry out my skin too much.

Seriously impressed, I tell you.

Not as impressed as you are. I will admit though that I have only used the Buffering Cream after the mask since I am almost out and too lazy to purchase anymore. We shall see.

Online at the Mario Badescu website. You have to pay shipping, but they throw in a bag of mini fun. Or you can find it at Planet Beauty...Irvine Spectrum, CM, NB. I'm not sure about further south!
