Mario Badescu Review

Mario Badescu

I received some samples in mail from Mario Badescu to try and test to see if I'd like them on my skin. The other products are other items I got in the mail to help my hair and skin, and you know the dreaded Flu Season!

On to the products I will be reviewing............
I have pictured here the Strawberry facial scrub, flower & Tonic Mask, Oil Free moisturizer Spf 17 and Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream.
Here is a close-up of the Strawberry Scrub, I really liked this product, but it was a little too gentle for my skin type. There was actually strawberry seeds in the scrub and it smelled just like fresh strawberries... a great plus for me! It would be great for people with sensitive skin and normal to dry if you need the extra exfolation. But for my oily skin it was only ok, and I don't think I would buy this scrub from their line. But they do have sooo many options for every skin type online, and I would like to try something better suited for my skin.
The next product was the Mask, and this product was a hit for me personally. It smelled really fresh and soft nothing too overwhelming. I used it after I washed my face about 2 times a week and it lasted about 3 weeks for me. I then applied it all over my face and left it on for about 20 mins, I then removed with warm water. I had a fresh face after washing it away, and I could tell my pores were a bit tighter. I liked this mask because there was no burning when I applied it, and I tend to have sensitive skin just after washing my face. I think this is great for all skin types and if you have larger pores. Here is a picture of me with it on SCARY! 


On to the Eye Cream and Facial Lotion, which were pretty nice all around. The eye cream did not irritate my eyes at all and left them very dewy, which I liked a lot since that area actually gets dry on me who knew! There was no strong smell just a very light scent. The Facial lotion wasn't too heavy and was oil free, and that is always a must for my face. I liked the fact that it left my face dewy but not shiny while moisturizing all the spots I needed it too and leaving the rest not overly moisturized. 

I would say this will work for all skin types, and they did not make me break out at all, and I was a little worried about that happening. I was pleasantly surprsied of the quality of this skincare line, and I look forward to trying more!

Here is a close up of the products I discussed 

When I do get the chance to order some of Mario Badescu Products I will most likely order their line for oily skin to acne prone. I have seen a lot of other products that I really want to try and I can't wait to get my hands on them! Also anyone can get samples on their website, and they sent me ones for "all skin types" which is the reason why some of them weren't the best fit for me. I highly recommend this skin care line, because of all the options they give you on their site, and they literally have something for everyone!


  1. Nice, you look awesome with the face mask on! lol Its a super cute picture. Maybe I live under a rock but I never hear of Mario Badescu before.

    1. I just recently heard about them a year ago, but they have some really great products. I just have to wait for Christmas to come lol!

  2. I've just heard about this line of products recently, but I think this is the first review I've seen. That strawberry scrub sounds fantastic! I'll have to try and get my hands on some..
