Says who? Let’s not get into the logistics (if any) behind this so-called “rule;” there’s no need unless you’re really, genuinely curious. Besides, we don’t really care for the rules too much. Case in point: we don’t believe in using rough, grainy exfoliatiants for acne skin. It just shouldn’t be done, given that it’ll only further irritate already sensitive skin (think gentle!). That, however, is a story blog post for another day…

Back to whites. In the interest of full disclosure, we’re actually big fans. All year long. Call us rebellious, but no rule is going to stop us from reaching for our jar of Whitening Mask – it’s just too good to keep shelved in hibernation for half a year!

So what is it, you ask? It’s a hydrating mask that helps reduce discoloration, sunspots and old acne scarring. A blend of Kojic Acid, Mulberry extract and Licorice brighten a dull complexion while Grape extract reduces any redness and irritation. It’s an anti-inflammatory, lightening at-home “treatment,” if you will.

Just 10 minutes, 2-3 times a week. It’d be harebrained on our part if we thought about leaving it for some silly rule…

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).

  1. Hi! I am a huge badescu fan!!! One question what is the difference between the drying lotion, and the healing cream??


    • @Rosine: Hi Rosine! Thanks so much – we love hearing from our customers 🙂

      Our Drying Lotion helps dry up surface pimples (whiteheads) overnight, whereas our Healing Cream is a product (it’s sulfur-based, whereas the Drying Lotion is a formula made with a blend of Salicylic Acid & Calamine) that helps calm & soothe irritation that occur due to breakouts. It helps ensure that the blemish heals properly as your skin is quite sensitive then!

      Both are to be used in small amounts on the affected areas only. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to leave us another comment here or shoot us an email :).
