Beautiful, Badescu Skin

"Putting your best face forward."


Who: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. Daughter of Carine Roitfeld, former Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue. New York socialite, muse to Tom Ford, face of Tom Ford’s Black Orchid perfume ad campaign, model, designer. Fashion it-girl with the best of both worlds: New York City meets Paris.

What: Photographer Todd Selby captures the essence of Mademoiselle Roitfeld with snapshots of her home in New York. And in her medicine cabinet, we spy some Mario Badescu, front and center…

  • Vitamin C Serum. Three  things you need to know about this stuff… it tones, improves skin texture and gives you what none other can give. Radiance. And from us to you: one of our MB staff members calls it her “rock star” product (and she doesn’t say that about just anything). That seemingly evasive French, je ne sais quoi, au naturel skin suddenly isn’t so intangible anymore. Yours, in a little green bottle.
  • Rolling Cream Peel with A.H.A. Another must-have for beautiful, Badescu skin. At MB, though, we use it on our feet, too. It’s our staff secret.
  • Buttermilk Moisturizer. The name itself sounds divine. But since MB isn’t about the labels, this moisturizer hydrates and rejuvenates combination sensitive skin.
  • Mask, unknown. Unfortunately. Judging by the worn label and product spillover, however, it’s been well used and well loved. And that’s all that counts.

Do you use any that Julia R.R. uses? Or, better yet, what’s in your medicine cabinet

I tend to be verbose, so I'll keep it as short and sweet as possible: I write and dance. A lot. Also pertinent: Aries, pescatarian, and lover of all things beautiful. I'll be honest when I admit that before MB, I simply washed my face twice daily and left it at that. But ask if I'm a skincare junkie now and I'll nod voraciously. I can never be without moisturizer, and the Vitamin C Serum makes my heart palpitate. And if by some miracle you haven't tired of me rambling about myself or the Vitamin C Serum and are curious for more, visit my Google+ page for more of my work.
