Masks -Mario Badescu -Super Collagen Mask

I've really been struggling with my skin lately. I've always had super dry complexion but lately it's been rough, red, acne-prone with HUGE pores. After some research I determined my skin is sensitive, dehydrated, combo and a consult on MB website recommended this mask.

I like the scent and that it dries quickly. It was easy to apply with a foundation brush and I left it on for twenty minutes. When I removed it, my skin looked better than it has in at least a year. My pores had disappeared, my skin was smooth but not tight and dry, and my serum went on like silk. To be honest, I was shocked. I didn't expect it to work that well. At this price I can buy pretty much as needed (it's way cheap compared to my usual brand) and I definitely won't be without this in the future.

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

I picked up the smallest bottle on a whim at Ulta. The great rose scent, limited ingredients list, and reasonable price drew me in. I use it as a toner between skincare layers. I'm nearing the end of my bottle and will probably repurchase at some point in the future--I like to alternate between store bought toners and straight-up rose water and other hydrosols.

the only thing this product has done for me at all is set makeup. despite the fact that the bottle says it can be used to set makeup, i honestly thought this wouldn't be able to set makeup since all it is is water, aloe, and fragrance. but i recently ran out of all my makeup products except for 1 foundation and 1 powder that just wouldn't work together; the powder kept slipping/creasing after a few hours. i got desperate and tried using this to set the foundation+powder and it works like a charm, it kept my makeup looking flawless and creaseless for much longer.

it does feel somewhat refreshing when sprayed on a bare face, but it isn't super hydrating and doesn't make a difference in how my skin looks. any cheaper plain rosewater spray would probably be just as effective.

I'm not really sure what this product is supposed to do, but it definitely doesn't leave my skin feeling hydrated, quite the opposite, so I'm probably gonna gift this one away since I'm not seeing any benefits to using it.

HG status face mist. I like this better than the rosewater one. The smell is nice and refreshing. I always use this as the first step of my skincare/makeup. It doesn't provide hydration, but it is a nice base for essence and moisturizer that I put on top. Would be a good refresher during the summer months if you put it in the fridge. I don't use this as a setting mist though. Price is great. I don't think I will switch to another brand anytime soon.

this is a product you need to have if you get breakouts i get tiny bumps and larger pimples and this gets rid of them in the morning but be careful not to shake it then you can't real use it and have to wait for it to settle.

Treatments (Face) -Mario Badescu -Vitamin C Serum

I bought this when it was half off because I wanted to see how it stacked up to some of the cheaper formulations that I normally use. Though it seems to be slightly more moisturizing, it really isn''t any better or worse than your run-of-the-mill vitamin c serum. However, I like keeping it around for a little treat because the lavender oil it contains smells amazing. If I have had an especially stressful day, I slather it all over my face just before sleep. In the future, I just might add some drops of lavender to a bottle of cheap stuff. But in the meantime, I'm very happy to have discovered this.

Wow, is this the first toner ever that doesn't give me clogged pores? It might be! I only use this at night, but it feels so cleansing, hydrating and softening that my face feels like a baby's butt every morning. I have some scars left from when I struggled with mild acne, and I feel like they are fading faster now, too. Really happy with this product.

This is one of those products that I order a second of when half is gone. I have to have it on hand at all times. I don’t have acne prone skin, per say, but when I do have those nasty cystic bumps and white heads pop up, I put this on. It shrinks the swelling and tones down the redness. I find it doesn’t quite stay on all night (it’s recommended to use the product and leave on overnight), but it’s still effective. I wish that the bottle was easier to travel with, though. Be careful not to shake it or it will mess up the application.

I don't understand the reviewers who state this didn't work for them as a makeup setting spray. It's not a makeup setting spray. It is more like a spray on toner in a skincare routine. I have loved and used this spray for years, and it is still a workhorse in my skincare regimen. And this spray is much more affordable over most brands that offer a spray type skincare item. I buy multiples every time Ulta runs a sale on MB products. My daughter just recently purchased the newer Lavender one and loves it. For me its a very pleasant step in a rather boring but necessary personal step in taking care of ones self. I also in the last couple of months tried one from Amazon by Heritage that was mentioned by one youtuber that she uses. While its affordable, I still prefer the MB one. Please just give this one a try.

I've been using this for a while, I bought it mostly for all the hyper around Mario's products, and because I found my face needed a bit of a refresher mid way through my long work days. To be honest, it does not live up the the hype imo.

While it feels very nice after first spritzing your face with it, within about 10 minutes or so I find my face dying for moisture, it feels so dry (this is when spritzing it onto my face mid-day with makeup one/SPF, etc).

When I used this after cleansing my face before applying the rest of my skincare, it's better, but I still find my face feels tight and dry after a few hours or so.

After reading the ingredients on this, I realized it's probably due to the fact that this contains alcohol. I just have to accept that any product containing alcohol is no good for my face. So I've taken to using the remaining product on my body before my moisturizers.

I won't be repurchasing this, in fact I may just go back to DIY-ing my own again.

I currently rotate between five different facial sprays, this one is a regular but it's not my favorite. In terms of store bought sprays, it's good, it does refresh my skin, it has a nice atomizer and it's very affordable. I use around 2 ounces of various sprays a month so quite a bit of it. I make my own spray with rose water and frankincense oil that I also like, but this is an okay alternative. In the summer, I put this or my homemade one in the fridge to make it extra refreshing. It's great all over your body on a hot day.

The cucumber version is slightly nicer to me, but that's only because roses taste terrible when it's on your lips. These don't leave a film or change my makeup much, but it's definitely not a setting spray. This is more to hydrate, cool down, or to wet your face before adding moisture to it. I'm looking forward to trying the Lavender version next. If you find this has too many ingredients I recommend trying a DIY version.

This is my go to setting spray when I'm not wearing a ton of makeup. It's light and refreshing and it works.

I also use it on my freshly washed face before moisturizer, and use it in my hair to tame fly aways. It's truly a multipurpose product and I always keep a spare bottle.

This, like the buffering lotion, is another MB product I am never without. It does an excellent job at shrinking small, closed blemishes and clogged pores. It can burn if applied to open skin (try Dr Eckstein's Azulen paste) but otherwise is a great product and a great price.
