Toners -Mario Badescu -Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater


Caused me to break out. I had quite clear skin but after I started using this products I started to get pimples and a lot of bumps on my forehead. To ensure that it was exactly this product that was causing me to break out, I stopper using it for one week and my skin became clearer and the pimples reduced. But after one week, when I started using again it caused me to break out again, much more as well. I guess this works differently on different skin tones.
Additionally I don't like the smell, quite too strong for me. But that's just my personal opinion

Skincare - Face -Mario Badescu -Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea

on 7/21/2018 4:58:00 PM


I started using this product a week ago and at first I really liked it. Felt refreshing on the skin and was a quick pick me up. A few days later I started to notice comedones (little bumps) all over my face.
A week later I have cysts forming in the areas I was using it and hundreds of little bumps all over. I'm so disappointed and annoyed I ever used this product. There's a YouTube video of a woman who used this product and had the same reaction. Wish I had seen it sooner.
Avoid this product! Mario Badescu has allegedly been sued for using unlisted ingredients in their products, some of which are only prescribed by a medical professional.

Treatments (Face) -Mario Badescu -Drying Lotion


I suffer from nearly year round oily skin, exacerbated by the high humidity and temperatures where I live. In other words: a recipe for disaster every now and again. Whenever a blemish appears I use one dab of this a few minutes before going to sleep and I wake up to a pimple that is at least 50% flatter and healed. it's almost as though it speeds up the whole start to finish cycle of the pimple, so instead of it lasting up to a week, you're looking at no more than a few days max. Love how quickly it dries and the bottle is small enough for travel too which is a bonus.

Felt really nice on my skin. Reduced redness and irritation. I have combo skin. Not too drying and not too oily. Product felt just right.

Toners -Mario Badescu -Glycolic Acid Toner

on 7/7/2018 11:52:00 AM


My skin: combination/dehydrated skin with hormonal acne.

I have generally very good experiences with glycolic acid in other products from other lines (Mene&Moy/M&M/Eneomey, notably), but this toner just didn't do much of anything for my skin. I found it quite harsh and drying, in spite of the aloe vera and the relatively low glycolic acid content. Too harsh for everyday use, but not very effective as an exfoliant, especially seeing as I really cannot use it on a daily basis. It always made my skin go into overdrive and produce much more oil than usual the day after using it, so I have switched to other chemical exfoliants. A higher percentage of glycolic acid in an emollient cream base or as a mask treatment seems to work much better with my dehydrated skin and has better effect.

Don't think I'll even manage to use up this bottle, sadly. Maybe on my chest and shoulders, or something along those lines.
