Mario Monthly Edit: March Skin Care

Spring ahead with fresh, dewy skin.

The moment we turn the corner from February to March, it’s as if someone snapped their fingers and just like that, spring is in the air. The temperature could be the same as it was one week prior and still it would feel different now that it’s March. Somehow, 40 degrees feels warmer. Sunnier. Dare we say happier, even?

Everything is better in spring.

In celebration of warmer weather and in preparation for the new season, we’re revisiting our medicine cabinets. Out with the old, on with the spring cleaning, and in with only the essentials for our freshest, dewiest skin yet.

These are the products that made our monthly skin care edit:

CUCUMBER CREAM SOAP

It’s creamy, cool, and Cucumber-infused for a clean that feels fresh, never stripping. Meet your perfect between-season face wash that rinses away surface impurities and leaves your skin as soft and smooth as can be.

CUCUMBER CLEANSING LOTION

If you have combination skin that veers oily come the slightest hint of sun, swap out your winter toner for this one. Formulated with Cucumber Extract for its natural astringent and vitamin-rich properties, Cucumber Cleansing Lotion is a must-have for soothing skin and removing unwanted T-zone shine.  

HYDRO MOISTURIZER WITH VITAMIN C

Replenish and rejuvenate dull, dehydrated skin. This glow-boosting blend of antioxidant Vitamin C, hydrating Squalane, and antioxidant Vitamin E is designed to help improve the look of uneven skin tone and texture. Simply massage a light, even layer on clean skin—day or night—and repeat daily for bright, moisturized skin.

VITAMIN C SERUM

We’re staying right on track with our glowy skin them. For skin that’s smooth, even, and bright, reach for this little green bottle. Vitamin C Serum is brimming with the good stuff:

  • not one, but two Vitamin C derivatives
  • smoothing Collagen
  • soothing and hydrating Aloe Vera
  • calming Lavender Oil
  • mineral and vitamin-rich Cucumber Extract
  • revitalizing Ginseng Extract

In short: it’s like a multivitamin for your skin.

SEAWEED NIGHT CREAM

For skin that’s dewy and plump with hydration, use Seaweed Night Cream every evening. This is a rich yet oil-free formula packed with nutrient-rich Seaweed (Bladderwrack) Extract, Collagen, Elastin, and Sodium Hyaluronate. Massage a dime-sized dollop over clean, freshly misted skin or layer it over Vitamin C Serum to boost your morning-after results.

CUCUMBER TONIC MASK

Incorporate a clay mask into your weekly routine to counter increased shine and congestion. Use it all over or in targeted areas—like your T-zone—as a pore-purifying treat.  

FACIAL SPRAY WITH ALOE, CUCUMBER AND GREEN TEA

It wouldn’t be a #MarioMonthlyEdit without adding a multi-tasking mist into the mix. This one feels especially apropos: it’s the perfect solution for tired skin in need of an instant pick-me-up. Nutrient-packed botanicals enrich skin with a slew of complexion-boosting benefits, plus, an infusion of cooling Cucumber and Peppermint Essential Waters leaves skin dewy and re-energized.
