I recently was allowed to try the Mario Badescu Skin Care line. I received an entire regimen. Along with my products they sent me instructions for the proper use of each item.
So here I am going to tell you about each product and it's use.
First off I received the Enzyme Cleansing Gel ($12.00). This is to be used morning and evening every day. You use your fingertips to apply the gel, massaging in a gentle circular motion on wet skin. When you are finished you remove with a soft face cloth or warm water. This is to wash away any makeup or debris on your face.
Next is the Seaweed Cleansing Lotion ($15.00). For this one you need a cotton ball. Moisten the cotton ball with the Seaweed Cleansing Lotion and apply with an outward direction to your face. Avoid the eye area. You continue doing this until the cotton ball comes away clean. Obviously, you might need more than one cotton ball. When finished you may rinse your face and neck with lukewarm water. This is a mild, non-drying and non-alcohol toner.
The Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream ($18.00) is next. You dab this under each eye and massage into the skin. You work from the outer corner in and continue, applying also to the eyelid. Blot off any excess with a tissue.
The Collagen Moisturizer SPF 15 ($22.00) is last. This is applied to the face, avoiding the eye area, nose and chin. Massage in gently and blot excess.
Then 2-3 times a week in the evening after cleansing you apply the Whitening Mask ($24.00). I LOVE masks! Apply the mask gently with your fingertips, once again avoiding the eye area. Leave this on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. You may then finish with the rest of the daily routine.
The very last item I received was the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser ($15.00). This one was to be used in place of the Enzyme Cleansing Gel 2-3 times a week. This is to help with some aging spots I have been developing. This is an herbal based exfoliating cleanser. It is to break down dulling, oily buildup and dead skin cells without leaving skin uncomfortable or stripped.
About Mario Badescu:
Mario Badescu was a Romanian-born skin care specialist with a bold vision. Being both a chemist and a cosmetologist, Mario had a very unique perspective about skin care, appreciating both the chemical nature and complexities of the skin, as well as the desire and innate satisfaction and confidence that healthy, clean, radiant skin can give a person.
Mario opened his salon in New York City in 1967 and began to develop his signature skin care product line. The effectiveness of these products and his unparalleled European-style facials did not remain a secret --- before long, Mario was rubbing shoulders with the most famous actors, actresses, and celebrities of his day, as they looked to his products and salon as New York City's very own fountain of youth.
Likewise, we have maintained Mario’s dedication to offering our skin care products at exceptional prices. We believe that everybody deserves good skin care, and have crafted our prices accordingly. Using simple, no-frills packaging is part of the reason we are able to do this. While other companies are concerned with fancy, shiny wrappers and bottles, the packaging of our products is not as important as the products inside them. This allows us to focus on providing a quality product at an affordable price.
