Skincare Brand I Love: Mario Badescu


I get asked a lot about what I use on my skin, so I figured that we could talk about one of my favorite brands today. Keep reading to see what products from Mario Badescu I would recommend to anyone looking to try them out. 

As someone with combo to oily skin, I have to be careful when it comes to what skincare I use. If the product is too creamy, it can break me out and clog my pores. If the product is too drying on the skin, I’ll produce more oils, leading to break outs. Everything I’ve used from Mario Badescu has provided me with the perfect balance I’m looking for. If you have oily or combo oily skin like I do, here are a few products I’d recommend to you.

Flower and Tonic Mask, $18

This mask basically purifies the skin and cleans out your pores without making your face get that super dry, tight feeling some masks do. It contains zinc oxide and kaolin, which are used to balance and purify the skin. It’s suggested to use this mask 2-3 times a week for the best results. I used this for months and definitely saw results.

Acne Facial Cleanser, $15

When my skin was going through a heavy duty breakout phase last year, this is one of the products that brought my breakouts under control and eventually cleared them up. This has¬†salicyclic acid in it, so it’s made to clear your skin and control breakouts. The best thing is that it doesn’t strip the skin like some acne fighting cleansers can. My skin has improved over the past few months, so I haven’t been using it much lately, but would definitely repurchase it should I need it.

Anti Acne Serum, $20

This is probably one of my favorite spot treatment/serums for blemishes out there. You can use it daily if you have frequent acne and breakouts, or as a spot treatment for those hormonal pimples that always pop up during that time of the month. The gel doesn’t stay sticky on the skin forever like some serums, and it not only helps clear the skin, it also adds hydration so you’re not producing excess oils that will cause you to break out more.

Glycolic Eye Cream, $20

As I’ve told you guys countless times now, I have the most dry under eye known to man. This eye cream is the only thing I’ve found that keeps my under eye hydrated for 24 hours or more. It’s meant to be used overnight, since it’s super emollient so it could possibly disrupt your makeup if you use it right before you put your base products on. It claims to soften the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration, and I’ve found that it does this and then some. I can definitely tell the difference when I don’t use it versus when I do. I already have a backup of this, and will continually repurchase it.

Alrighty folks, those are my favorite Mario Badescu products. I purchase them from Ulta, but you can always find them on Hautelook in sets of two for an even better deal.
