Review: A few years back I worked for KIT Cosmetics and it was whilst working there that I discovered Mario Badescu and its star skincare product, Silver Powder. While the name is bares no real relevance to the product and what it does (the powder is more of a grey/white colour), I was gob smacked to discover that Silver Powder focuses solely on reducing and extracting blackheads from the skin's surface. The reason for my shock (and excitement) is because my skin is plagued full of many, many open pores and blackheads. Many are so tiny that the average person does not believe me when I explain just how many I have... but they are there... and to me they are obvious. Silver Powder comes in a powder form which is mixed with a few drops of water to create a paste that goes over the targeted areas. After a couple of practices the product is rather easy to use and starts to really work wonders in one to two applications which is why the product has me so excited. The scent does not really smell like anything in particular. It is light and not overbearing which is a relief when you know it will be on the skin for around 10 minutes at a time. Designed for all skin types, I would personally only recommend it to those who experience a lot of blackheads because this is the purpose of the product. Silver Powder contains Calcium Carbonate, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. It has been a while since I last used Silver Powder but writing this review has reminded me just how much I need it and now I think I need to get back on the horse and invest in another jar. The only thing I don't like is how Silver Powder is exclusive to KIT Cosmetics and is therefore not an easily accessible product.
Tip: Dip a dampened cotton ball in to the powder and press on to the congested areas of the face once or twice a week. Let the product works its magic and wipe off with a clean cotton ball containing toner or warm water.
