Yay, my package came in for my Mario Badescu Skincare samples. I heard about this product line from Xsparkage. I would say I have semi problematic skin, so I wanted to see if this line would help. After watching Xsparkage's review, I decided to go to the website and take their skin care survey like Xsparkage did. I think I filled out the survey in the beginning of November. I waited and I got an email with recommended products and an invitation to recieve free samples. I finally got them a few hours ago and tried out 4 of the 7 samples.
These are the samples I recieved with the descriptions from www.mariobadescu.com.
Botanical Facial GelA refreshing oil controlling cleanser. This non-soap, non-foaming, gel cleanser is deep cleansing and refreshing for oily skin. Removes make-up, dirt and oil thoroughly without over drying skin. Exfoliating Alpha Hydroxy formula helps prevent build-up that can cause blackheads and pimples.
Special Cucumber LotionRefreshing, disinfecting and deep cleaning astringent that is effective in drying up existing acne blemishes while preventing new eruptions. Sulfur and soothing Cucumber based, acne fighting formula that is non-drying and non-irritating.
Hyaluronic Eye CreamHyaluronic Acid formula helps lock in the skin’s own natural moisture without the use of heavy, greasy oils. Absorbent, medium weight cream for use day or night. Aloe based formula makes this cream suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF 17)Like the Oil-Free Moisturizer, this lotion has the same benefits for oily and problem skin with added daily sun protection to keep scarring and discoloration to a minimum.
Drying MaskHelp clear acne eruptions. This Colloidal Sulfur based mask dries existing pimples and oil and helps clarify problematic, acne prone skin. Soothing Calamine makes this mask safe and gentle for most skin types. Great for back and chest acne eruptions as well. Best when used as a companion product to our Healing & Soothing Mask and Buffering Lotion.
Acne cream that conceals! Drying Cream is an effective treatment to dry up small under the surface bumps and pimples. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control. Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples.
Strawberry Face ScrubMade with real Strawberry seeds that gently buff away flaky skin while natural AHA’s break down dulling build-up to unclog pores and prevent blackheads. It improves skin's overall texture by revealing healthy, glowing skin.
So I've used the botanical facial gel, special cucumber lotion, hyaluronic eye cream, and oil free moisturizer (SPF 17). So far I like them. My skin feels nice a smooth after using the products and it isn't too dry or oily. Also I like how the products don't have strong fragrances.
AND look at the size of the samples! In the photos below, I have a MAC eyeshadow next to the samples so you can see how big the samples are.
I will have an update on these products in a few weeks.
Thanks for reading!
