Making Things Millennial Pink Before It Was, Well, Millennial To

Since 1967, to be exact—so here’s to 50 years of pretty, pink, and photogenic skin care.

DRYING LOTION

Formulated in: 1960s

Pink may be pretty—but it also targets whiteheads while you sleep. Drying Lotion was formulated by Mario Badescu himself—making it the original bi-phase solution that dries up surface blemishes overnight.

Pink isn’t for every type of breakout, though. Use Buffering Lotion to help shrink large, under-the-skin bumps and Drying Cream for small bumps and pimples.

FACIAL SPRAY WITH ALOE, HERBS AND ROSEWATER

Formulated in: 1980s

Looks pretty in #shelfies, looks even better on your face. Mist the cult-favorite facial spray whenever, wherever to rehydrate and add radiance to your skin.

Pink not your thing? We have a Cucumber and Green Tea-infused Facial Spray, too!

Mario Badescu Makeup Remover Soap Millennial Pink

MAKE-UP REMOVER SOAP

Formulated in: 1970s

Soap may be in the name—but in reality, this is a creamy, comforting cleanser that helps dissolve away light makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry or right. (In fact, it’s formulated without the use of fragrance, surfactants, or oils, so it’s perfect for dry or sensitive skin.)

Mario Badescu The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 Moisturizer Millennial Pink

THE MOISTURE MAGNET SPF 15

Formulated in: 1980s

The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 is technically millennial, but seeing as it’s considered an OG millennial, this product is deserving of the spotlight, too. Creamy and nourishing, this daily moisturizer gives skin a soft, smooth finish—which is why it’s a makeup artist favorite for creating an even base.

Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub Millennial Piink

STRAWBERRY FACE SCRUB

Formulated in: 1980s

Also technically millennial, this delectable (and photogenic) scrub is a must for anyone looking to add a gentle exfoliant to their regimen. Real strawberry seeds are infused to buff and smooth so dull skin looks fresh, even, and bright.

I hold these truths to be self-evident, that skin care is paramount, green tea is everything, and the Internet rules all (typical Gen-Y philosophy; if it wasn't 'grammed, it never happened).
