Cleansers -Mario Badescu -Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

This is one of the worst skincare products I have ever used. I gave it a shot originally because of my love for the drying lotion spot treatment of the same brand, but I shouldn’t have. This RAVAGED my skin. My skin is slightly sensitive, and the reaction was terrible - tiny bumps all over my face, intense dryness and irritation and stinging when applying other products. Makeup only emphasized it and made me look much older with all of the texture on my skin.
All of this after just 2 uses. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

Cleansers -Mario Badescu -Enzyme Cleansing Gel

Love love love this baby! For a dry skin girl like me I hate foamy cleansers which are super drying and my skin feels like sand paper till I moisturize. This is by far one of the best gel cleansers i’ve used not too mild, not too harsh just perfect. I use bioderma micellar solution to remove most of my makeup followed by this cleanser and my skin is squeaky clean. u could use the Clarisonic Mia 2 for added benefits. I’ve also noticed a glow in my complexion and the tiny pores around my nose almost seem non-existent. 10/10 would recommend for all the dry skin ladies.

My sister gave me a practically full bottle of this as se had bought it and saw no benefit. She has acne-prone skin and I think it irritated her. I have combination skin with dry patches. I found no irritation using this product but also saw no benefit other than it being a refreshing, nicely-scented spray. I used it after washing my face before applying moisturiser but tbh I don't know why I did this as it didn't make any difference to anything - all psychological! I think this is a gimmick tbh, like most toners / facial sprays. I can imagine it not being brilliant for sensitive skin. The bottle is big and the packaging functional but the whole concept seems to just be a fad. Meh!

Earthy scent. Green gel that does not foam. Gentle exfoliator. Rinses clean. Not drying. I use this in the morning. Honestly, I’m not sure how anyone uses a cleanser only to remove makeup, but you’d need a harsher cleanser to remove makeup. I’m not a fan of foaming cleansers, so if you are this is not it. Cleansers shouldn’t be stripping the life out of your skin, so if that’s what you want, this isn’t it. Last, you should be using moisturizer after cleaning your skin. Like all the time. You may need something after this, I use something light, but it also depends on the weather. This cleanser has all the qualities I want in a cleanser (non-foaming, gentle, mild exfoliator, not drying) so I would recommend it. Once again, it’s not for everyone, so I’d recommend getting the travel size or buying from Ulta where you can return it.

Moisturizers -Mario Badescu -Oil Free moisturizer

Well.. It's alright. Not something to rave about. My skin doesn't really like oily moisturizers so I tried this. If you have a really dry skin, I don't think this will be enough for you. It's a small bottle for its price.

Smells like earth/herbs. This cleanser is great for people with good skin. It makes my skin soft and glowy but it's too gentle for my combination skin, I need something that REALLY cleans my face. It's still a good cleanser but probably not for me, at least not right now.
This is not meant for removing makeup, you have to remove your makeup first and then use this cleanser. You should do that with ALL cleansers, not just this..

Moisturizers -Mario Badescu -AHA and Ceramide Moisturizer

Oh how I wanted to love this after spending over $20 on it :( It's very greasy yet it somehow managed to make my skin dry and flaky, and it clogged my pores like crazy. I had high hopes cause I have issues with dark spots and blotchiness, but so far I have noticed NO effects of the AHA. I've used AHAs before and usually within a week or so my skin looks more even, brighter, and clearer, but this actually made my skin look worse. It gets 2 points for the excellent squeeze-bottle packaging but that's all I liked about this product.

I bought this after hearing nothing but good things & its so cheap for how much product you get! I have normal - dry skin ( more dry in the winter) and rarely get pimples / spots etc. However after using this spray for a few days regularly it has broke me out!!! on my chin & forehead but massive yellow heads!! Doesn’t moisturise my face at all makes it feel drier! i wouldn’t recommend for anyone with similar skin type to me. After reading reviews there is various people who have suffered the same issue. So disappointed i wanted to love this so much !! The smell is something i didn’t think it would smell like but if the product was amazing i could have overcome that. Also just a warning when spraying on top of makeup it is not a fine mist and will leave droplets on your face

I love a facial spray and this is a decent one. I have dry skin and I like to use sprays after makeup and sometimes as a refresher. This isn't the best one on the market and it isn't going to produce miracles, but it's inexpensive, easy to find, and does the job.

I've tried this version - aloe, cucumber, and green tea - as well as the rose version. I prefer the rose for the scent, but haven't noticed a difference between the two.

The packaging is okay. It's a plastic bottle with a plastic pump. It has a nice, fresh scent.

I love this! The nicest toner/facial spray I’ve used. I love it right after a shower followed by Embryolisse moisturiser, and it’s very nice right after makeup. I feel more dewy and glowing since I started using this.

The packaging is clean, minimalist and pretty and I like the pale pink colour of the liquid.

Would repurchase.

Seriously Mario Badescu - you have stitched me up big time with this. Wtf were you thinking?? I love the look of this cream, I love the idea of a cutely packaged night cream that doesn't necessarily have all the bells and whistles of serums but does the job as a last step of sealing in my other products. Also - the mint green is such a cute colour! Sadly this was a greasy, mess on my face and never absorbed in any way. It just slid around on my pillow like a slimy mess. I loved the frog-esque colour of the moisturiser but I didn't want it to make me feel like a sticky amphibian. Not sure why there is such an intense film with this, its may be the acrylate-based film-forming agent? You have been warned.

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

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.

Horrible. Makes me break out every time I use it, idk why.. I have even tried keeping it further from my face. It helps keep my makeup fresh but I break out all over my face the next day. Not worth the money.
