I have very oily skin and huge pores, and after using the silver powder for the first time my pores were noticeably smaller. I can honestly say my skin has never felt as clean as it does right after I use this. I use it over most of my face about twice a week, and it is a little stubborn to get completely off but just use my regular facial cleanser to do so. This is an amazing product at an amazing price. Even the most congested skin will feel relief with the silver powder.

Congested Pores Larged Pores GONE!
AMAZING! I am on who has constant congested pores and blackheads, especially throughout my T-zone. I used this product for the first time last night, and my pores are not only almost completely cleaned out, but much smaller. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Also, like everyone else is saying, it is tough to get off. The directions say to take it off with a toner astringent, but I used my normal face wash.

i was unsure about this product because so many have not worked for me and the price was a bit much for something like that but after i have tried it i can say it works.. not exactly what i would expect but works:

A MUST HAVE
Truly does what it says, great for clearing up blackheads and preventing breakouts. I use it twice a week to keep my skin looking great.

Love this product
I was skeptical about this whole line after trying many, many products to treat acne over the years. Have been very impressed with the way this product makes my skin feel clean and I think it has prevented future breakouts. I will be definitely be reordering. I like the whole line.

This was the best product I ever used! It totally cleared my blackheads and helped with my oily skin all in one use!! Absolutely amazing!

Great for clearing pores!
Since my last purchases of MB my skin has never been clearer. The silver powder is great at clearing out blackheads, pores and overall keeping a clear complexion. I also have the cucumber lotion, cucumber tonic mask and seaweed night cream in addition and I love them all! It is real difficult to remove as other reviews said but as long as you use a toner it will come off quite easy.

Absolutely amazing it made my skin look smoothe and poreless
I was skeptical about this product a=cause after all its a powder. Let me tell you it is nothing short of amazing. It absolutely made my nose smooth and pore less the blackheads are not prominent looking anymore. Its like it goes into the pore and really drys out all that is in it you can see it happening! BUT this now!!! This stuff is great for the oily girls out there like myself it really helped with the oil that seems to spurt from my skin especially on my nose. Than you Mario badescu products I am a new loyal customer since seeing the videos about the products on youtube!!

You will be surprised how well this product works. I was shocked. All my blackheads were eliminated and my pores shrank considerably.There are so few products that actually work. Try this.

Silver Powder is INCREDIBLE
this stuff is just incredible - i do agree with others that it can be difficult to remove, but what i do is apply it while i am in the shower right away when i get in, after quickly washing it using a dampened cotton pad - then i am careful to keep my face out of the water while i am showering. after the 10 mins, to get the stuff off my face, i SWEAR by the jane iredale magic mitt. if there were ever two products meant to complement each other, these are they. mario badescu might get annoyed that i mention another company but i promise you, this is the best way to remove it and your skin will look and feel AMAZING. the silver product is my favourite skin product, end of story.

I love it! First product for blackheads ever that really works!
It is a bit tricky to apply but believe me, the results are amazing!
Joanna C. | Saturday, December 26, 2009 | VT
I have tried many of the Mario products that are supposed to help with acne or black heads, etc. Really, they all work very well. This is amazing though. I use it and my pores disappear. I use Buffering Lotion too, which helps maintain clear skin. Thanks Mario!

The Best Product I Have EVER Used!
This is the best product I have ever used hands down! It does exactly what it claims..... the very first time you use it! It makes pores almost disapear and blackheads are comepletely gone! I did a double take in my mirror! I even looked in the 8x magnifying mirror and was astounded. I absolutely love this product and even though I have dry/combo skin it was not irritated or dried out. I sent some to my sister who has very oily skin and she loves it too! Buy this... you will be so happy you did!

A saleswoman recommended this product to me, and she was practically jumping up and down with excitement telling me how great it was. I went home and used it, and when I wiped the product off my skin looked AMAZING. I generally have a ton of blackheads on my nose but they were all gone, and my skin looks and feels smooth and even, and isn't oily at all usually within an hour or two of washing my face, my skin gets oily gross. It's seriously amazing.

Amazingone of their best products
I, like many of the other reviewers, have oily skin with large poors and a great deal of congestion on my nose and chin. The Silver Powder is truly amazing. After the first application I couldn't believe how clear my skin was. It is my absolute favorite of the Mario products.

I hate the climate in GA. It's humid here all year round except in the Fall & Winter seasons. Only, my skin thinks it's humid all the time. I'm a picker and I hate it. I didn't realize the reason my breakouts were so bad because I'd get clusters of blackheads in one spot which I thought were cystic pimples. I use the Silver Powder like a fish needs water. It does not dry/irritate my combo/sensitive skin. I love it!*Note: If you have "picked" place on your face, it is extremely difficult to get off using the recommended method. So don't pick.

Great contribution to skincare regimen
I used this on my T zone area and I noticed a considerable difference. My skin appeared as though I just had a facial!
Erin L. | Thursday, January 31, 2008 | NY
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!
I have large, clogged pores on my nose and T-Zone in general for as long as I can remember. I know, it is as terrible as it sounds. No matter how many facials or products I would use nothing would unclog my pores. In ONE ten minute application of this product there was an UNBELIEVABLE difference. My nose looks clear. Doesn't dry skin at all. I can't recommend this product highly enough. IT IS WONDERFUL!!
Janet A. | Saturday, November 03, 2007 | FL
This product is amazing. I have never seen something work so well and so fast! It is very easy to apply and remove. It minimizes pores, the appearance of blackheads and sucks up excess oil without over drying. AND its a great price and lasts a long time!
Bonnetta O. | Tuesday, August 21, 2007 | CA
OMG this product works great !!!!

good blackhead remover
This silver powder does a great job at unclogging my pores. It's the best product I have tried for eliminating blackheads.
Vanya K. | Saturday, March 10, 2007 | MA
This product made the blackheads on my nose look way less noticable in just 2 minutes. I am amazed!! My pores also tightened and are less visible rignt now! I like the new look!
Kasey S. | Wednesday, January 17, 2007 | FL
I admit it...I pick at my skin. It drives me INSANE that the pores on my chin look huge and congested and I just have to pick at them. Saying that, this product is AMAZING. I used it as directed and I immediately noticed a difference. My pores were less congested and looked smaller and there was nothing tempting left to pick at. MIRACLE WORKER!!
