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.

    Truly miraculous stuff!!!

  128. Love lotions with shimmer….they really make you look so feminine

  129. i would love to try your samples

  130. I love your products so much!

  131. I have not found any skin care regimen that gives the results I see other people get. I want to give Mario Badescu a try. I’ve heard so many fantastic things..

  132. Love to try something that works!!:)

  133. This is a great opportunity to try something new!

  134. New to the products, been using the skin care products and are amazing. Would love to try this lotion to see what other amazing products MB have!

  135. Your new body lotion looks very inviting. Could I possibly get a sample. I went on your site to order the frenziefreebies and discovered your fan friday giveaway. Neat.

  136. would love to try this product ,who doesn’t wan t to use top of the line products on their skin and know you will not have a bad reaction.

  137. Would love to try the lotion!

  138. Would love to try this!

  139. I want this!!!

  140. I would LOVE to try this lotion.

  141. I have just now found this skin care site and would appreciate the opportunity to try a sample. As I am getting older, my skin isn’t taking care of itself like it use to, or as I thought it was. We were not as careful with the sun in my day and now I am paying for it. If nothing else, maybe someone will take my post seriously and start when you are young. No one is too young to protect their skin. I now have spots from the sun, not age, dryness, itchy and I’m totally uncomfortable in my own skin. I am looking for ONE product (company) that I can count on for all of the conditions I have mentioned. Again, Thank-you!

  142. Perfect to try for spending the summer in the desert!

  143. Another good MB lotion!

  144. This is one product I have not tried yet.

  145. loved to try!!!

  146. Would love to try this along with the other products I am ordering tonight.

  147. Living in the deep South, I practically live outdoors. However, daily use of body lotion is a must. This looks like it would perfect to accentuate my tan and give it a glowing effect. I would love to try the Summer Shine Body Lotion and add I it to my daily routine.

  148. Summer is my favorite season by far! I would love to win this lotion to show off my healthy, summer-ready skin!

  149. I just starting using Mario Badescu products this week and have already seen a noticeable difference in my skin! I love love love the enzyme cleansing gel, the honey moisturizer, and the honey almond exfoliating cream. I wish I had discovered his skincare products years ago, before using such harsh products on my skin! I will be expanding my product collection soon. :)

  150. I have not tried any of the Mario Badescu body products yet, and I think this would be a wonderful way to start. It would nourish my skin while also giving it an instant pick-me-up!

  151. I got a sample of this last year and loved it

  152. would love to try. not much works for me this time if year plus i have diabeties,type2. thanks.

  153. Love mb!!!! My skin is amazing from shower to bed!!!

  154. I was hoping to receive a free sample to try, I’ve never heard of this product, I’m kinda a snob about my regular products, but lately I’ve been trying to be more “open minded” about certain products, but the website and information is confusing to me, I’m constantly trying to “enter to win” +/or “log in again”
