Mario Badescu Sample Review

1.) Special Cleansing Lotion “C”: The Cleansing Lotion is a toner.  It took off any traces of dirt the cleanser left behind. My face felt moisturized after using it.

2.) Botanical Facial Gel: It didn’t really give me the clean feeling I wanted.

3.) Drying Mask: I gave in and used it. The smell was still terrible. It felt like a regular clay mask.  I'm not sure if it worked or not. 

4.) Kiwi Face Scrub: It didn’t exfoliate. It felt nice on my skin though.

5.) Oil Free Moisturizer: Pretty good. Didn’t leave me oily at the end of the day.

6.) Drying Cream:  It didn’t dry anything.

7.) Hyaluronic Eye Cream: I woke up the next day with tiny red bumps around my eyes. It was so sad.

The only product I really liked was the Special Cleansing Lotion. I might buy it in the future. Some people say that they love these products, and that it takes time to see the results. It may or may not help you. Everyone is different.  I’m going to stick with my current skin routine. I’m still on the lookout for better products.

1.) Special Cleansing lotion “C”
2.) Botanical Facial Gel
3.) Drying Mask
4.) Kiwi Face Scrub
5.) Oil Free Moisturizer
6.) Drying Cream
7.) Hyaluronic Eye Cream

It also came with a product application guide and a product guide booklet. They add your name to the application guide which is neat. It made me feel special lol! This guide just tells you how to apply the products in the morning and in the evening.The product guide is a catalog of all their products.

I’m going to try them out this week. Everything smelled decent except for the Drying Mask. It smells like something that would come from an auto shop. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to use it. I’ll give a review on the samples next week.

DIY Acne Mask: Honey, Baking Soda & Cinnamon

This is a great home remedy for people who have acne or occasional breakouts. I use this mask twice a week at night. I have sensitive skin and I did not break out in a rash. After using this mask, I have notice that it has reduced the size of my occasional pimples and it is fading away my scars.

What You Will Need:
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon of baking soda
½ teaspoon of cinnamon

1.) Mix 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon together.
2.) Wash face and pat dry
3.) Apply the mask and leave on for 15-20 minutes
4.) Wash mask off with cold water and pat dry
5.) Moisturize


Honey: Kills acne causing bacteria and absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin. It moisturizes and conditions your face without making it oily. It’s also rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Cinnamon: A natural astringent and anti fungal treatment.

Baking Soda: Removes dirt, dead skin, and unclogs pores. It also fades acne scars.

**I’m not doctor, but you should not use this mask if you are allergic to any of these ingredients. Try it on a small area first. If you do have a reaction, you should stop using this mask. Registered & Protected
