I have been using this healing powder for almost 2 weeks now. It did minimize the redness of my acne and dries it up within 2 days. Normally my acne will stay for quite awhile before it pops. I also used a bit of the powder over my make up since I have a very oily T-zone area. It did not totally stop the shine but minimize them so my make up stayed longer than usual. So for that I am happy with the product.
This is my first Mario Badescu purchase and it really lived up to its expectations. It is also value for money and really does wonders. Great to mix with your loose powder for your everyday make up. On its own it is also good for reducing redness.
