As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.

  190. MB products are dependable

  191. I took a little time off from work and had a “me” day, shopped and stopped into Freunds Beauty in Noho. I was given some free samples for my skin type. Liked them so much I started researching the product line and I found the Badescu DIY Facial on the site. A few days before returning to work I tried it, following up with the samples for a week. I have NEVER received compliments on my skin but when I went back to work after that week off FOUR people have said “you look great!” “well, that week off did you some good, you are glowing!!” “you look different..I mean you look pretty! And from a coworker who never give compliments, “Your skin looks great, what did you do? Did you get something done on your stay-cation?”…Mario, where have you been all my life?!

  192. I’d love to try this scrub! I love Mario Badescu products and this would definitely help me get rid of some dead skin cells :D

  193. I am looking for a new face scrub, since the one I am currently using is a little harsh on my skin for the winter time. I would love to try this one out, due to it being non-abrasive.

  194. I have tested and tried so many skin care products but Mario Badescu is the only brand that not only nourishes the skin but leaves it feeling soft and supple! I can’t wait to try this face scrub!

  195. I got a sample of this and I’m finding it really good actually!

  196. Mario Badescu’s scrubs are the best, like dessert for your face :)

  197. Love all of your products!! Hooked and would love to try this xoxo

  198. I have suffered with acne and sensitive skin for years, but after using Mario Badescu’s products my 17 year old daughter said ” mom, you look like someone who used to be a model!” Ok “thanks!” I think! I tell everyone about your terrific products, the best value in skin care!!

  199. Addicted to exfoliaters this one is gentle enough for acne prone skin… Can’t wait to try it!!
