Special Healing Powder
5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

Where have you been all my life???? I love this powder! Smooth, oil controlling, what could be better!? I wouldn't use this under the eyes as that would create too matte of a look but to cut down the grease and shine on the t-zone is amazing. Don't let the yellow look of the powder or sulfur smell scare you, the way this makes the skin look is well worth it! You have to understand that this is a MAKEUP product to be used alone or over foundation to control oil. It's not meant to treat the skin at night or to be used as a skincare product.

Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30

I was looking for a simple, basic moisturizer with SPF that was not too expensive, and this was on promotion at the time. I'd say this is OK, nothing too exciting. I like that the ingredients are simple because currently I am using prescription grade actives and don't want to do too much. This goes on smoothly, doesn't irritate my skin, and leaves me a little dewy, but not greasy. I feel like it plumps up the skin. It works well alone or under makeup. It doesn't leave a white cast or need excessive rubbing - but that is because it is not a mineral sunscreen, which I'm learning is probably worth the extra effort. This is not my favorite, but I like it for quick application. I was drawn to it because it has some soothing ingredients like aloe, green tea, glycerin and NO SILICONE which is hard to find! Cons: contains chemical sunscreen & fragrance which is less then ideal I'm on the fence if I would purchase it again... I do think it's a bit pricey for how simple it is. Packaging is cute, but leaves something to he desired for the price point.

Hyaluronic Day Cream

I'm surprised no one's done a review for this product. I have really been enjoying this. The first 2 days I used it, I wondered if it was really working or my skin was looking brighter. Which could be the effect of the hyaluronic acid more than the product actually claiming to be brightening. A week down the road, I'm noticing overall complexion definitely brighter. Skin feels hydrated and softer. The first time using it, it may feel like your skin gets greasy and oily, but give it a few more days, I found the skin balanced itself out with the cream and starts to really work. It sat well under CC Cream. Overall 5 stars from me! This is my first Mario Badescu product review. Have tried some in the past but none left any real impression. This one makes me eager to try the other ginseng and seaweed creams.
