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

on 12/15/2018 12:37:00 AM


I’d say this product is good. It’s not the best thing ever but it’s not as bad as some of the facial sprays out there.

I initially bought it to use as a toner but I find myself using it as a last step of my makeup routine (though during the dead heat of the summer, I kept it in my fridge and sprayed it before leaving the house!). I don’t think it extends the wear-time or anything, but it does give my skin a glow and takes away that powdery look and meshes everything together.

It has a moderate rose scent which I don’t mind but there will definitely be folks who’ll straight up hate it because rose isn’t everyone’s jam. Another good thing is that you get a ton of product for roughly 10 CAD $. I paid the same price for Hard Candy Sheer Envy Spray which gave me the same results but was used up in a couple of months.

If I had to repurchase, however, I think I may go for one of the similar sprays in MB’s line but with a different scent. While I don’t hate the rose scent, it’s not always what I want to be smelling at 7 AM either. :)

Cleansers -Mario Badescu -Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

on 12/12/2018 3:21:00 AM


This cleanser does what it says. At first I was hesitant to try it because the combination of sodium lauryl sulfate and glycolic sounded something that would overdry my skin and leave me with the squeaky clean feel I loath.

Happily though this wasn't the case! You need a tiny amount to produce lather, massage thoroughly and rinse. I don't mind the scent of lemon and actually find it quite pleasant. The packaging allows getting as small an amount as you wish. I use it 3 times weekly and had never irritated my sensitive skin.

The effects are immediate, I definitely felt that my skin was smoother and not just for a very short while like traditional scrubs. Makeup went on more evenly and the overall effect was healthier looking. This is good stuff, will definitely repurchase.

Treatments (Face) -Mario Badescu -Buffering Lotion


I first tried this product because I heard zinc was good for cystic acne. I've since gone through two bottles (a few years apart), but I don't think I'll repurchase. It just doesn't do enough--I'm having much better luck with liquid exfoliants. If you're interested in trying it, here's what to know. The zinc (I assume) settles at the bottom, so you need to shake before using. It should look like a runny white-ish fluid. Fingertips is the easiest, least wasteful way to apply. It can be drying, so apply only to affected areas. The going price is $19 USD for 1 fl oz.

Moisturizers -Mario Badescu -Seaweed Night Cream

Not impressed at all. Leaves the skin very oily. Didn't notice any difference.

Treatments (Face) -Mario Badescu -Drying Lotion

on 11/21/2018 2:06:00 AM


I have mixed thoughts about this product. The first 20 or so times I use a new bottle, it works pretty good to dry out Whitehead’s. I usually have to reapply twice at night. But then something happens and the bottle becomes less potent and I’m left with half a bottle that does not work as well as when I first bought it. The qtip also picks up a lot of excess product and causes waste, because you can’t exactly put it back..
