2017: A Year in Review

Here’s what happened in 2017 here at Mario Badescu Skin Care:

January 2017

We made our beauty resolutions. The ball dropped. We clinked our glasses, sipped champagne, and launched headfirst into our 50th anniversary—because half a century ago was when it all began.

It was in 1967, out of a two-room Manhattan apartment, where our salon and product line came to be.

February 2017

We launched a new Facial Spray to complement the OG cult favorite: Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea.

Here’s how it differs from the original.

You make her happy, we’ll make her glow 😉

There was the Mario Badescu meme heard ‘round the world. We didn’t break the internet, but we nearly broke up a couple (sorry, Isabela 😉!).

The icing on the cake? Getting named “Best Acne Skin Care Winner” in Yahoo’s first-ever “Diversity in Beauty Awards.”

April 2017

Our two most iconic products—the rose-infused facial spray and one and only Drying Lotion—were in the running for Pro Awards from The Makeup Show!

We headed to Orlando, Florida for the annual Ulta GMC Conference and a company-wide retreat that quickly turned into a Disney World takeover. Read more about our trip and what we packed here.

Another highlight of our year? Seeing that Caleb Mclaughlin loves pink dots just as much as we do! We loved him the moment we saw him in Netflix’s Stranger Things, but his #EmbraceYourFace campaign was what had us head over heels.

After Orlando, we were on warm weather withdrawal… so to combat the palm tree blues, we promptly jet-set off to San Juan, Puerto Rico. When in Puerto Rico, you mist, apply SPF, and repeat. See our skin care travel diary here.

July 2017

Hot off the presses. #MBFactoryFriday

One Mario Badescu Facial Spray is sold every. 20. seconds.

August 2017

Drying Lotion is named a winner of the Teen vogue Acne Awards 2017! Here’s why:

“This holy grail product for Kylie Jenner and Teen Vogue editors alike can, no joke, make a pimple vanish overnight. Simply dip a q-tip all the way into the unshaken, separated solution and dab it onto your spots. Sulfur, salicylic acid and zinc oxide work to dry up your whiteheads and give you a glowy start to your day.”

September 2017

We launched in Glowhaus, Bloomingdale’s new beauty boutique!

October 2017

We’re in Times Square! #wemadeit

November 2017

Our collaboration with the inimitable Martha Stewart—made exclusively for QVC—launches, introducing skin care by the decades. Hand-picked by Martha, made by Mario Badescu Skin Care.

December 2017
