This cream is beyond amazing. After dealing with a very large cyst on my chin for months I purchased the buffering lotion and healing cream without ever having heard of MB. I am so glad I did - I use it as often as I can and it does nothing but good - the cyst is finally healing and everything else on my face is rapidly improving - this is a life saver!!

a life saver
I had really bad cystic acne for a while and had nearly given up and was going to go to a dermatologist, instead i ordered buffering lotion, healing cream and the drying lotion. the buffering lotion is necessary for me, i use it every 2 to 3 days now to keep the acne at bay. but the healing cream is constantly in use, after the buffering lotion stopped the pimples happening i had slight scarring on my jaw, it would have taken months to heal normally, but the healing cream did it in about 2 weeks. my skin now looks flawless. It works well if you have a pimple you want to heal fast, you just keep putting in on throughout the day, love it and love MB

I am 43 years old, and I have acne, acne scars and rosecea. The healing cream has worked wonders on my skin! I am very happy with the results. It has reduced my breakouts to much smaller blemishes. It has reduced the redness. It has helped heal some of the scarring. My skin is not perfect, but it probably never will be at this point. But...the healing cream has made a huge difference in the color and texture of my skin. Great product!

I have been using your Healing Cream for the past two days and can not believe the results - I have been trying to get rid of a stress breakout on my chin for about a year - it is just about gone since I am using your healing cream - This is amazing! I will never be without it - I now want to try your other products for dry skin! I can not wait! I am so happy I discovered you on line!

THIS STUFF WORKS!!!
I am 29 years old and have been struggling with acne and acne scars for the past 5 years so my skin has been wrecked and I have lots of scarring on my cheeks. I ordered this product about 3 weeks ago and I can attest to the fact that it works like it says it will. My skin has never been this clean and clear. When I do break out, which is very minimal now, this cream helps calm and soothe the redness while helping me not to scar. It works great under make up and I use it instead of moisturizer. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I am a customer for life!!! Thank you for making it affordable!!

I tried this cream as a sample and immediatelly ordered a full size. I use this every morning under moisturizer or alone, I never had much acne, but when I got some, it left a mark, scar or something on my face, this cream actually heals all of these post acne problems. Great product!
Janet C. | Thursday, May 27, 2010 | NY

Saved my skin
I am about to turn 30 and still plagued by acne. I dont remember a day in my life that I have not had several inflamed areas on my face ujntil now. I use the healing cream in place of a moisturizer and it calms any red irrited spots immediately. My skin is clear and softer than it has ever been.

Recently, I got a terrible case of contact dermatitis from a new foundation that I wore just once. My skin turned red and swollen then continued on to dry up and flake. The Rx cream I was using did little to help with the flaking. One evening I decided to try MB Healing Cream on a couple of the worst spots. The next morning I was amazed to see the redness gone and the treated spots looking much, much better. I continued to use the cream and within a few days my skin problem was solved. I am so happy I had the Healing Cream from MB on hand!

I just got a sample of this and hopefully it will work! I dont have heavy acne, but do get few breakouts around my skin and cheek areas.
I love mario's whitening mask thought!

A miracle for Rosacea sufferers!
I have subtype II Rosacea and this is the only product that has ever made my skin feel normal. It immediately soothes and cuts the redness. It's also amazing for healing pimples. I often just use it by itself, but for big painful blemishes, I apply this over Mario's Buffering Lotion and it works extremely well. Also, it is the best thing around for fading spots from old blemishes. It works even better than the strong glycolic acid products I used before! This product will always be a staple in my skincare routine!

Thankful for your wonderful and SPEEDY products!
I ordered a few products to try because my face and neck were red, itchy, flaky, dry and TIGHT like I was wearing a mask or peel on my face and was trying to smile without first washing it off! I had been to a dermatologist and used the pills and cream as prescribed, but my skin condition continued to worsen. I had never had sensitive skin before so I started doing some research online and discovered Mario Badescu. I was desperate enough to put aside my favorite skin care products that I had been using for many, many years with great success and buy six products from a company I had never heard of beforesimply because of the many positive reviews I read. The Healing Cream was one of those six products. My products arrived only two days ago and alreadyfor the first time in nearly three monthsmy skin looks great again and FEELS great, too. I noticed a real difference the VERY FIRST TIME I used them! I wouldn't believe skin care products could work that fast if I hadn't experienced it myself. But these did, and I am so thankful. Mario Badescu ROCKS!

a miracle worker for eczema
I originally bought this for use on my face. After reading several reviews on its effectiveness against eczema I gave it a try. The results were so fast and my eczema was gone after just a few uses. I don't even have to use it everyday as another person reported. 2-3 times a week is sufficient. No more redness, scaling, flaking or itching. I'm shocked and will always keep this on hand for my eczema. Nothing has ever worked this well.

I come from Europe where MB products aren't available so I order them online.
I had a Helicobacter stomach infection that caused me deep acne-like breakouts and after I healed, my skin was left in horrible state.
I've been using MB products to heal my skin and I have to say I'm very satisfied. I haven't had a single breakout or even any pimples that I usually got even before the infection. That helped my skin to recover and healing cream did miracles. My skin is very smooth and even and the big red marks are fading so quickly, I can see the change everyday. It's been almost a month and I only have small visible marks that I'm sure will fade completely within one more month.The
I thought that the marks would stay forever but I'm sure soon my skin would look like nothing happened.
I'm also considering trying some anti-acne scarring products because I'm very convinced that it will help me further.

A HEALING CREAM THAT DOES WHAT IT SAYS IT WILL DO AND MORE!
My daughter has always had problem skin suffering from acne and eczema. We first began using Mario Badescu's products for acne but soon discovered the Healing Cream. Because my daughter plays volleyball and is required to wear knee pads, she would develop redness and dryness to the extent that it appeared scaly. Doctors prescribed various creams but the only product that clears it up is this Healing Cream. It begins working, with a noticable difference, within a few days of application. We have a deep appreciation for this product. She can now go out wearing shorts and not have the embarassment of problem skin.

HEALING CREAM IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!
I have been using the Healing Cream for about 10 years and the stuff is AMAZING!!! If you have redness problems, this is the very best thing. It's great for irritated skin and when I use it over my sunscreen as a moisturizer I look RADIANT and never have to wear ANY makeup. The yellow color gives a glow to the skin. I also love this product because Mario Badescu has not raised it out of most people's price range, so you don't need to look for a substitute, since they keep the price where it's affordable! GREAT!

Why doesn't EVERYONE use this??
I'm 29 years old with hormone related acne sigh.. I've tried EVERYTHING even Pro-Active and Murad so, naturally, I was skeptical when I saw this, but the reviews convinced me to give it a shot. Within a WEEK of using this cream enzyme cleanser which, also, is GREAT my skin has cleared and most importantly SOFTENED significantly. Gone are my dry, red, and flakey irritated cheeks, the bumps on the sides of my chin, the painful whiteheads below my nose, and the tiny whiteheads near my hairline. I use this day and night. In the day, I take a dab and mix it with a bit of water to make a nice day moisturizer. I even used this on my boyfriend's red, chapped nose after his cold and the next day, the chapped skin was much improved and healing and the day after that, it was back to normal! This stuff is a Godsend!

BEST KEPT SECRET..REVEALED!
I am a 36 year old male who has battled red patches on my face, typically in the creases of the nose and when i don't shave for one day! It is hereditary as my father and brother have the same problems. Sometimes these little red patches move to the eyebrows, hairline and upper cheek. I have used everything from prescription ointments to name brand moisturizers to Dermatologist suggested dandruff shampoo!! Three weeks ago on vacation, I didn't bring any moisturizer with me and my philtrum area under nose and above lips or mustache area was getting very red and really dry! My girlfriend suggested I try her Healing Cream. Let me just say the clouds have parted, the
planets have aligned and the patches have not returned since using Mario Badescu Healing Cream!
I hope this helps someone out there because I am truly grateful for such a great product!!!
Jane M. | Thursday, October 02, 2008 | CA
this does exactly what it is supposed to and more! i use this in place of a moisturizer and it really helps with redness and irritation. no clogged pores either! feels awesome, works better than imaginable, lasts FOREVER.
Sandra M. | Monday, September 08, 2008 | KY
I actually had Healing Cream for several months before I used it, thinking incorrectly that it would further aggravate my inflamed, reddened skin. Not so! After a particulary bad bout with irritated skin and some breakouts I dug this out and applied just a thin coat to all the affected areas one night and the irritation was completely gone, my skin calm the next morning! The breakouts were gone in just a couple of days. A miracle cream and everyone should have it! This one should be in the "Miracle" regimen.

Healing cream-multi purpose miracle
I have used this cream on and off for post acneic redness. I also use it regularly for my dry skin. If it wasnt for this cream I would probably have blotches of redness all over my face. I sometimes use it as a lotion and other times I will put it on red, irratated at night and in the morning my skin is in tip top shape. Thanks Mario Badescu!
Stephanie P. | Wednesday, July 30, 2008 | NJ
I had a facial at the Mario Badescu spa on Saturday and had to endure many extractions. I got a sample of this for the redness and only a few days later my face is in tip top shape. I wasn't sure this would really work, but it DOES!!! And I really like the smell :

Finally, a product that works
I have been suffering on and off for the last 5 yrs with acne/rosacea problem. I went to different dermatologists and all the medicne they ordered for my face irritated so much. I was so pessimistic when I tried this healing cream, but amazingly it cleared my face within 3 days. Friends, Co-workers could not believe it. It is a miracle. EXCELLENT !!! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

HEALING CREAM WORKS FOR ITCHY ECZEMA!
I use this cream on my face body for patches of eczema. It helps heal fissures and itchy patches of irritated rashy skin! I use this healing cream along with moisturizer, when I get an eczema flare.
Michelle C. | Thursday, March 13, 2008 | NC
I love this product
I cannot begin to say enough about this amazing product! I have acne scars that my dermatologist said would fade with time. I tried the healing lotion after reading the reviews here (Yes I read them all, and thank you all) so I decided to give it a try. Not 3 days later there was a NOTICEABLE difference in my skin. The 'scars' are so light now you can barely see them. in fact my husband says I can only see them because I know they're there, he can't even tell!
This cream and the drying lotion will be a permanent part of my skin care routine. THANK YOU!
Abigail C. | Thursday, March 06, 2008 | FL
Buy it. It works.
I never write product reviews, but I am such a fan of this stuff I had to write.
Buy it. It works. There's not much more to say. I love this product.
Elizabeth A. | Wednesday, January 23, 2008 | MD
I have had dark acne scars for months. I put this on just ONCE and two hours later they became faded pinkish marks, barely even noticeable. I have tried everything, literally. Along with the drying lotion, I actually have good skin now, I HAVE GOOD SKIN. I am absolutley dumbfounded at how amazing this product works. MB works miracles.
Suki H. | Wednesday, December 19, 2007 | 00

I can't live without it!
It's true, I can't live without healing cream. I was diagnosed with rosacia about 10 years ago. I was on topical antibiotic gels, for quite some time which never quite cleared up the redness. Whatever I would use over the counter whould just dry my skin and leave it flaky. Then about 1 year ago I found healing cream, and it has worked miracles. The redness is gone. I use it everyday on my combination skin as my mosturizer. I also have acne prone skin, and it really heals scars very quickly. I even use it on other minor skin irritations, ie sunburns. I hope Mario Basdecu never discontinues this product.
Emma D. | Wednesday, October 17, 2007 | MI
I recently (in the past year or so) started getting a lot of little bumps on my cheeks and it was always quite red. I had been looking into using MB products (I have sufferred from acne for several years) and finally settled with the Healing Cream. I am so happy that I did. Those little bumps and redness cleared up, and I am continuing to see great results. I love how rich and creamy this product is. I have fairly dry, acne-prone skin so I also use a moisturizer on top. I love this product, and so many others agree!
Lisa K. | Friday, August 17, 2007 | NC
It Really Does Work!
Recently, I visited a skin care center, and they tortured my skin by picking at my blemish areas.
My face looked so red and terrible that I thought I could never go out in public for at least a month or so...scars don't go easily.
Then, I tried this healing cream from MB and my skin went from disgustingly tortured to a nice, healthy complexion.
This product definitely saved my face.
Thank you MB!

Healing Cream truly heals
While I have tried and used many Mario Badescu products in the past, this was the first time I tried the healing cream. I had overlooked it many times but thought maybe it was the answer to my problem. I have dry patches on my forehead and chin that are easily irritated and inflamed. If I so much as scratch my chin it becomes irritated, red and bumpy. Having dry skin, I can't help but get a flare up every so often. I put the healing cream on my forehead and chin and the soothing comfort was immediate! I am usually afraid to put anything on them, even perscription stuff for fear of the burning sensation I ALWAYS get when I put anything on it (even vaseline). The healing cream did not burn. It was like a burst of cooling moisture! I am amazed by this product and will keep a jar of it handy forever. I recommend this for anyone with red, irritated or rashy skin conditions. THIS IS WONDERFUL!

Works for Chicken Pox!
I came down with Chicken Pox at the age of 26. Three weeks into it, I still had a crusty, red, scabby rash that looked like it was never gonna go away, or even worse - leave scars. I overnight purchased this healing cream and applied it the next morning. By that evening, the rash had almost healed to faded red marks (a huge improvement from the raised, crusty scabs they were)!! People at my work had noticed it too and asked what I was using! Thank You!

BEST CREAM for acne!
This is my staple product - I cannot live without it! It really takes away the redness, not just from acne but sometimes when my skin gets chapped from being too dry. It's seriously the only cream that works for acne without overdrying or peeling. I don't know if I can ever live without it.
I introduced it to many friends, who have serious acne and they are all happy with it!
Amber N. | Saturday, March 17, 2007 | CA
This product works GREAT for that stage of a pimple after I've picked at it (I know..BIG NO NO) or it's been erupted. It soothes all the redness, keeps the area free of germies, AND expediates the healing, so my skin is smooth within more than half the time when it's left untreated. THANK YOU!
Amanda C. | Thursday, December 14, 2006 | NC
Thank you so much for this product! I just recieved this in the mail yesterday along with the drying cream...used it as soon as I took it out of the box. I can ALREADY see and feel a difference! I will continue to use this with the Enzyme Cleaning Cleanser and the drying mask and Healing and Soothing Mask.
This is the only thing I have found to treat my acne, roseacea, and my extremely dry skin I aquired when I used acutane.
Susan C. | Saturday, December 02, 2006 | PA
Closest thing to a skin miracle I've ever seen
(Sorry I messed this up the first time.) I used this on my son's eczema a few years ago. He had it since he was about 6 mos.old and NOTHING made it go away. (Tried creme de la mer, Nivea, and everything in between.) Five days on healing cream it was mostly gone but you could still see an outline where it had been. In about 10 days, it was completely gone. He's 12 now and it's been gone for like 3 years. He just has to use it maybe one or two nights a month now to maintain.
Joy Evangeline B. | Thursday, October 26, 2006 | NY
Always on hand!
I use this product to heal the skin around the the area of a small whitehead that, because I did not treat it soon enough with drying lotion, has "erupted." It quickly calms and area down and helps heal the eruption while minimizing scarring. Wonderful!
Sarah D. | Tuesday, September 19, 2006 | NY
This stuff is really great for acne irritated skin, it soothes and gets rid of redness. I use it in place of a moisturizer since my skin is very oily, it even goes on well under makeup athough you have to make sure that all of the product is rubbed in well because there is some gritty stuff in it. Smells great too!
Thank you soooo much Mario, you truely have changed my skin!
Cynthia C. | Monday, September 18, 2006 | IN
I love it!
This product is incredible. I really does help soothe red irritated skin, and help acne heal faster. I am very self-conscious of the redness on my face from old acne scarring. This is helping to prevent that from happening again! I use it at night as my night cream. If I have a bad breakout, I will use it in the morning too.
