A miracle spot-disappearing product🤫🤫
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion I bought a bottle after my sister recommended it to me. I’ve not suffered from spots since I was 17 but for some crazy reason, I’ve started getting breakouts in my 19‘s. Bad breakouts! This drying lotion works, it’s cleared my skin, now I'm 21 and has struggled with my acne for years. I first started using it, the stuff is extremely insane. I only need dip a cotton bud into the bottle, right to the bottom, where all the pink liquid is resting. Then the cotton bud is dragged upwards through the liquid. Dab the cotton bud on to your spot, at night, and go to sleep. Your spot will disappear in the morning. I usually won't apply it all over because it's very drying. Although I tend to have a little bit of rosacea once in a while, I have spread a very thin layer over that area of my cheek / and never had a problem with over-drying. I'll also use it in the morning if I feel something coming on in an obvious area of my face, I'll apply a thin layer (once it's dry, I can blend away the pink a little more) then I apply my makeup and off to work I go. I had read that the product should never be shaken or mixed. I take a Qtip and dip it in just far enough to hit the pink solution, then I dab it on the spot where it's needed at night before bed. Smaller zits usually need only one application and it's gone overnight. Medium to larger zits I'll use the product for 2 or 3 nights in a row until it's completely gone. I'll see shrinkage starting the very next day. It seems to work best on whiteheads for me those active, greasy, liquid-filled spots. It doesn't work on red scars or anything, but you wouldn't expect it to. Anyway, highly recommended this product.

All problems can be solved with only 💰36!
Do you have such troubles? Usually everything is perfect, but the more important it is, the easier it is for skin to cause problems. When changing seasons or menstrual periods, I am a very acne-prone person, especially on the chin and forehead. This means that the imbalance of hormones in my body leads to the instability of the skin. At this time, I usually choose a complete set of skin care products to alleviate skin problems. Because a whole set of skin care products are of the same brand, their ingredients and application procedures will be strictly regulated, which will not cause adverse reactions when your skin collapses. Mario Badescu Complexion Perfection Kit $36 This set of products was bought at a discount. To tell the truth, I didn't know this brand very well before. But after I got a lot of pimples on my chin, the $36 products solved my urgent need. This set of products is designed to treat blemish prone and oily skin types, including Drying Lotion, Drying Cream and Special Healing Powder. Their specifications are not very big, and because I don't use them every day, they are very suitable, and I don't have to worry about the expiration. These three kinds of products can be used as a complete routine skin care procedure. There are two key components, both of which are useful for acne. The first one is Salicylic Acid, which can exfoliate in pores, remove bacteria and excess oil. The second is Sulphur, which is a gentle mineral that draws out impurities and absorbs oil. Generally speaking, my acne disappears in about two days after using this product. First of all, I will use Drying Lotion to apply to the surface of the acne. Please pay particular attention here. Never shake the bottle. All you need to do is dip the pink precipitate on the bottom of the bottle with a cotton swab, and then apply it on the acne surface. This is the core product in this group. Next, you can use Drying Cream and Special Healing Powder. They dry your oily skin and reduce the possibility of pore blockage.

My Favorite Skincare Meme
Who doesn’t love scrolling through their IG feeds and find a perfect meme that just seems to get you? I love knowing others feel exactly the same way about things that I do. There’s one meme that’s been circling around the internet for a while now, and it makes me laugh every time!  I love this meme for so many reasons. One, I actually use and enjoy the Mario Badescu Facial Spray, and two, this girl’s boyfriend clearly doesn’t understand the skincare world! Mario Badescu isn’t someone this poor guy’s girlfriend is having an affair with - he’s the creator of one of my most-loved skincare brands.  I especially love this spray for summer. The fresh herbs and rosewater make my skin feel super refreshed. I’ve used a bunch of stuff from Mario Badescu, and this is one that I often repurchase.  All meme jokes aside, this budget-friendly spray really does come in handy throughout the day. It’s not a makeup setter, so be sure not to use it right after you spend time doing a full face. Instead, it’s more like a toner in a spray bottle. You can use it during the day to spray over makeup if you feel like your skin is a little dry. I enjoy using this as the first step in my skincare routine. I either spray directly on my face or I squirt some on a cotton round and use it like a toner or micellar water.  I sometimes will even spray it on my legs and arms if they’re feeling dry, and I’m too lazy to slather my body cream all over! It dries on the body really fast so it’s awesome in winter when it’s freezing and you just want to get dressed ASAP after taking a shower.

Believe or not?! My 3-step Morning Routine in Just 3 Min!🤗🤗
I believe you are just like me who don’t like a busy morning and have no time for a full face make up or a full skincare routine. It is hard for some to save time and finish the whole skincare routine at the same time. I just figuring out that by bonding these products together for the morning routine can provide you an overall antioxidant and sunlight protection with an easy and efficient 3-step morning routine. Sometimes when the serum is already hydrating and moisturising, I don’t use a toner but the MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Teait’s really refreshing and prepares for the following make up if necessary. It has a really fresh smell and I like how convenient and easy to spread it all over your face other than use a cotton pad to apply toner.  Then I will follow with this COSMEDIX - Affirm Serum. This serum is super powerful and provides an amazing antioxidant protection for my face for the whole day. It has a liquid texture and has a very light sesame smell. It is not a cheap product though but I think that I would buy this again because it surprisingly solved my acne scar and redness problem with its anti-inflammation effect. A little product goes a long way so I think it actually worth it compared to many other so-called antioxidant serums. The last step of my 3-step routine isISDIN - Fusion Water Sunscreen SPF 50+ Oil-Free . Sunscreen is necessary for people with all skin types to fight photoaging. I have combination/oily skin and this sunscreen is non-comedogenic, it doesn’t cause pimples and provides a really comfortable and breathable dry finish. It also dries really fast and doesn’t leave any white marks on my face. One thing I don’t like is its weird fragrance to be honest but I can bear with that with for its affordable price. Time Is never enough and especially valuable in the morning so I wish this could help you to figure out what you may like to try in the morning to save time :P

Finally Win the Acne Battle💪
First of all, I am not an acne pore. I used to have terrible hormone acnes in undergraduate school. And today I want to share how I helped my brother to fight with acne pore. It took almost 3 years for the overall skin condition to change. But it worth it! These two products are the champion for this battle. Some of them my brother purchased himself and some of them are my products that surprisingly working well for him. The first one is actually my toner. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner I got this rose toner in a set when it was 20% off in Sephora. The price is $63 and the value is $78. You can also get a 20% discount. It is very cost-effective for a brand such as fresh that is not frequently discounted. The name of the bundle set is Best Rose Buds. There are real rose petals inside. I bought this one because I was attracted by its look. LOL. After using it, I feel that it is really moisturizing and I feel my skin soft and dewy. Really love the sense, It just smells of roses. I really love the ingredient. This fresh rose water does not contain alcohol or added ingredients. The rose extract is very natural. It is extracted from thousands of vigorous Bulgarian roses. My brother doesn’t like the smell though. But he does find it supper helpful when his skin is irritated or supper dry. He used this softened with a cotton pad and apply it on the cheeks for 15 minutes. MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea This spray is is always must have calming product. It is very cost-effective and contains plant extracts and antioxidants, as well as mint extract that’s targeting the dullness of the skin. It is a very niche skincare brand founded in the United States. Their products are rich in natural ingredients, especially professional at targeting acne. This rose aloe vera water also contains ginseng and seaweed ingredients, so calming and soothing It is good for moisturizing, soothing and setting makeup. You can take a bottle with you, moisturizing + anti-oxidation and anti-radiation. Fighting with acne is time consuming. Theses two products helped my brother a lot along the way for calming and relief. This doesn’t mean it works for every acne pore. Stay good mood and be positive is always helpful to maintain a good skin condition. Good luck!

Why You Shouldn’t Trust Mario Badescu Skin Care
Mario Badescu Skincare was founded in 1967 and has been steadily gaining popularity. As of now, their products are more commonly seen on Tik Tok and Instagram as part of aesthetic skin care routines. This correlates to their consumer demographic which consists mostly of teenage females. Does this brand really deserve all the positive attention it’s receiving? My answer would be “no.” You can decide what you think after reading further. The Lawsuit In 2013, the brand agreed to settle a class action lawsuit filed by thirty-one customers. The plaintiffs claimed that they were injured by undisclosed steroids in two of the brand’s face creams. The Control Cream and Healing Cream were marketed as products with the only active ingredients being “botanical.” The two steroids were hydrocortisone and triamcinolone acetonide. Allegedly, the two creams contained a concentration of triamcinolone acetonide that is higher than prescription-strength. Not only do these steroids cause serious risk to the skin, but to the overall health of the body. The plaintiffs used these products daily for as long as fourteen years. Many claimed that they unknowingly became addicted to the steroids causing painful withdrawal reactions when skipping usage. There were also claims of steroid-related illnesses while using one of the two creams, including glaucoma, adrenal system suppression, mood disorders, and so on. Why would consumers continually support a brand even after a lawsuit such as this? Well, ignorance is bliss. Current Formulations Now, the truth is all in the formulations of the products. A popular product such as the brand’s facial sprays can be be troublesome. The sprays, like many of their other products, have a high concentration of dyes and fragrance. Over a long period of time, these sensitizing ingredients can cause issues such as fragrance allergies. Not only that, but the other ingredients in the formula are just basic, common ingredients. There are much better alternatives for this facial spray, but a facial spray isn’t a necessity in a routine. Many products from this brand have very basic formulations that have a slight benefit to the skin. Marketing I must admit, the brand still holds popularity today because of it’s exceptional marketing and support. Many celebrities and teens promote this product on their social media pages which really helps this brand stay in the spotlight. It also helps that the company quietly changed and removed the steroids from their products after the lawsuit. Announcing it along with a public apology would have brought many questions of the company’s ethics and bring more controversy. Conclusion Although this brand has maintained its popularity over the years, the formulations and brand history has its negatives. There are many other brands that have superior formulations, better price points, and are more ethical.

i wanted to like it but
It irritated my skin! I bought this product last year, but it’s still for sale. Looking at the ingredients, though, none if them have changed. Sensitive skin peeps, beware! I don’t know if it was the Fragrance or what, but this thing made my skin tingle. And not in a good way. I noticed my skin getting red every time I used it. And, when it combined with my acne medication, it made the skin around my mouth peel for a week. I bought it because the store rep told me how popular it was online. And it was $14.00 for 8.0 oz, making it more affordable than a lot of hyped cleansers. But it just didn’t work :c In the 2nd pic, I lathered it with water on my hand. It also isn’t easy to rub into your face since it’s not foamy at all- though that could be a personal preference. But still, I did research and found some controversy around this brand. 🚨BRAND LAWSUIT 🚨 In 2014, Mario Badescu faced a lawsuit. People were using their Control Cream and Healing Cream, which were marketed as only having plant-based ingredients. But they each contained two steroids: hydrocortisone and triamcinolone acetonide - and they were stronger than prescription strength. Some had been using it for up to 14 years, but when they stopped, they got withdrawal-like symptoms. They suffered from higher cortisol, skin atrophy, and Cushing’s syndrome. To learn more about the science of these, I recommend Kaur Beauty’s video on Youtube titled, “STUDENT DOCTOR BREAKS DOWN MARIO BADESCU STEROID CREAM LAWSUIT.” Companies can reform themselves and change their formulations. But I couldn’t find any statement from Badescu on changing their practices. 🙁 So yeah. Thought it was important to get the word out on that. And hopefully this will encourage more ethical practices in the skincare industry.

My evening skin routine
Hey there, I am a combination/oily skin person. I recently started a new skincare routine because the previous routine was not working and it was actually making it worse over time. However it's a new day so here's my new nightly routine from left to right. 1. Gentle cleanse- MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel This is actually been working nicely on my skin. There is no foaming which in not really used to but it cleanses the first layer of dirt off with no reactions to the product so that's great so far. 2. Exfoliating Cleanse- philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash I absolutely love this product. I've been using it for months now and I love how it exfoliates my skin leaving it feeling smooth and I feel like all the dirt and make up is gone. Be gentle on your skin though because if scrubbed too hard you can tear your akin from the tiny beads inside the cell. 3. Toner- The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution I just started the ordinary brand altogether. So far I really like this toner vs ACV/water toner that I was using that complete dryies my skin out ad burned it. This does the complete opposite. It clams my skin and tighten my pores as well as leave my skin feeling supple and soft not dry. 4. Serum The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA I instantly loved this product because the results were very clear from the first application. I do about 4-5 drops on my face and apply it evenly letting it sit for 5 mins before moving on to the next serum. I have scarring that instantly smoothed out and the textured healing skin is much smoother than before. I'm so happy about that. 5. Blemish treatment- The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Right now I really can tell how well this product is working because tonight was my first time. I will say that with me combining them with the other serum it worked just fine on my skin no irritation at all. I'm currently dealing with period breakout so I won't fault the product quite yet. It's supposed to help with breakout and reducing sebum. 6. Moisturizer- The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil I never thought you use argan oil on my skin I've used it on hair but now I love using it on my skin. I was afraid it would make my skin oily but it actually hasn't. It's a very lightweight oil and It's best in my opinion to apply at night. I oil up a lot during the day so I use something else during the day.

My skincare routine when Breakout🧐
So, today I want to share my skincare routine when I breakout. There is times whether it is too much junck food you are intaking or unhealthy lifestyle or even pressure can cause breakout. I have experienced enough and everytime I stressed out. Here is a skincare routine that I found really working well for me and I really really want to share with you girls. I know it can be very frustrated, but there are good products that can help. And the main point is to stay calm and do not stress out since pressure is only gonna make it worse. Everytime I have breakout, I really want my acne to go completely away, as well as the scars and pigmentation. It is a long process. But I am going to share the products that I've tested and been working well for me. As normal, my skin type is that I'm a little bit oily in my T-zone and a little bit dry/normal on the rest of my face. So I consider myself a combination dry. Since most of my skin is still dry throughout the year all from Mario Badescu MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion This dry lotion is a spot treatment that helps dry up surface blemishes against acnes. The key ingredient in it is Zinc Oxide that works to protects skin and prevents further irritation. I use it during the night since it has the pink powder. And I really feel my acne is getting less irritated and smaller next morning. It works for pretty much all skin types. Sametime I also found it drys out my skin especially around the acne area. So you want to make sure to avoid other areas on your skin, only focusing on the acne . One thing I do want to point out is that DO NOT shake the Drying Lotion. MARIO BADESCU - Silver Powder This powder is mainly for black heads but I do found it calmed my skin really well and does a good job at cleaning. I like to use it during breakout days. I shook out about a tablespoon give or take into the cap of this jar and mix it with purified water. I use it twice a week and after a month I can literally see a difference in pore color and sizes. MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater This spray is my breakout days savier! It is such a nice calming floral face mist. One thing that I am always looking for during breakout days is ingredients. This spray is free of sulfates SLS and SLES and parabens. The natural ingredients including rose water, aloe and herbs helps dehydrated skin with a dewy glow. It really refreshes and moisturizes your skin. It comes as travel friendly bottle, I normally keep it in my bag and constantly use it through out the day.

first impressions of the SILVER POWDER
MARIO BADESCU - Silver Powder I came across this product and knew that I definitely needed to give this a try with my main problem being blackheads and pores ! this product is composed of calcium carbonate, kaolin and zinc oxide. calcium carbonate is an absorbent product which is why this product is so good at absorbing oil in your skin. kaolin is an absorbent clay mineral and is found in a lot of clay masks for oil absorption! zinc oxide is an effective acne treatment for inflammation and skin irritation to keep problems with breakouts away! now onto the review ! I tried this for the first time the other day and i am shocked by it !!!! I really didn’t have high hopes for this product (with it being mario badescu), but it’s amazing and I cant wait to use it again! how to use ! (use 1-2 times a week) I put this product on without wetting my face or cleansing it and then used a wet cotton pad and dipped it into the powder. I have heard people say it is quite messy, but it hasn’t been too bad for me yet! I then spread it over my face where I get the most blackheads which is my nose and cheeks. I left it on for 15 minutes, then got the majority of the product off with water. with a wet face I used a q-tip gently along my face where I applied it (pro tip I found on here!!) and some blackheads and oil plugs came out onto the q-tip !!!! *it was extremely satisfying* after this cleanse and do your routine as normal 🤩 hope this was insightful lovelies !!! ❣️ #cheriecreator

My Accutane Routine- Plz Critique
MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Rosewater Toner This is actually an empty to be honest. I just refilled it with witch hazel because ai love the container. But while I was using the actual product my skin was great. RATA & CO. - Rose Water & Witch Hazel Facial Mist Toner Honestly I don’t even know if this works. It just feels nice and is kinda fun to use. It has Vitamin C and aloe vera but I will have to use it more. CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 Boring I know but it gets the job done. The pumps are kinda small though, I have to apply to wet skin in order to cover my whole face but It kinda reacts weird with water. Like it doesn’t blend into my skin. CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion I love the texture to this product and have no genuine complaints. HAWAIIAN Tropic - Silk Hydration Air Soft Ultra-Light Sun Lotion SPF50 I feel like this isn’t very good. I love the scent though and the color makes it unnoticeable. I don’t feel like I’m wearing sunscreen. Very lightweight. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum I have seen a noticeable difference in my acne scarring but have to use it more. CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I LOVE how gentle this cleanser is. It feels super nice. That’s it. #Studio 35 Beauty - Vitamin E Skin Oil[products]#[FourStars] Very heavy but I only wear at night. Also with being on accutane, the first few weeks I would wake up with very dry skin. But my skin isn’t dry at all in the morning while applying this on parts of my face along with the vitamin C serum. NATURE'S TRUTH - Professional Vitamin C Serum I wake up glowing when I apply this at night. Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil No I don’t apply this to my face but just in general my whole skin gets super dry with the medication, so this also acts as a moisturizer for stretch marked parts of my legs and works amazing. Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant Holy grail for dry lips and recommended by my dermatologist. ChapStick - Total Hydration Moisture + Tint Lip Balm This came in a gift basket for a white elephant last christmas. But the color is great and it’s just fun to use. Gets the job done, especially before Zoom classes. Vaseline - Lip Therapy Rosy Lip Balm LOVE THIS!!!! World’s best lip balm. Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Works wonders for dry accutane skin on your body. Let me note that I have no idea what I’m doing. Please give me any advice if I’m doing something wrong, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!❤️

The skincare products I gave away 🙅🏻‍♀️
Recently I picked up a couple of MARIO BADESCU products with generally good reviews to incorporate into some empty spots in my skincare regime. My skin is normal to dry, non-acne prone and sensitive in my eye area but otherwise pretty easy to manage. My aim introducing a toner was to really clear my skin to make my pores appear more refined and to try a facial spray to boost hydration during the day between my AM and PM routines. The MARIO BADESCU Witch Hazel & Rosewater toner is described as being a mild toner which doesn’t strip the skin and contains aloe to soothe and hydrate. I used the toner daily in the PM after my Philosophy Purity cleanser for a week and my impressions were: My skin was uncomfortably tight and took a lot of effort and additional product than usual to rehydrate after using this toner. Within the first 24 hours I’d developed small irritated dry patches around my mouth and chin, these cleared once I stopped using the toner and my skin renewed. I tried twice again and both times caused the same irritation to my skin. There was no improvement to my skin texture or appearance of my pores during use Artificial perfumes 👎🏻 The MARIO BADESCU Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom facial spray is an infusion of essential water and botanical extracts touted as refreshing the skin and improving tone and clarity. I used the spray daily mid-day and my impressions were: Fragrance is nice enough from a distance but there is a lot of artificial perfume in this product which I don’t feel is great Refreshing when sprayed but didn’t hydrate my skin or have any benefit to the appearance of my skin My Rating: MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Rosewater Toner MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom The toner didn’t sit well with my skin at all, I wouldn’t recommend this product if you have dry or sensitive skin as I found it very harsh and dehydrating. The facial spray while not offensive I found pointless in my daily skincare regime as, while it didn’t have a negative affect on my skin like the toner, it didn’t do anything for my skin. I literally gave both of these products away to a friend to try and I wouldn’t repurchase.

Amazing product for body acne!😍
I have struggled with body breakouts for years and have tried everybody wash you can think of. And I was always looking for an AHA based body wash to help my body acne, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration from leftover body acne. I have extremely sensitive skin all over my body, physical exfoliation is not an option for me. I had never used any Mario Badescu products before buying this but had heard good things about them. This MARIO BADESCU - A.H.A Botanical Body Soap has been amazing! Within 3 weeks of using this, my skin has cleared for the first time in over 5 years. The fact that I used it more than a couple of times is astounding in itself. I use it with a shower oil and it has been a game-changer. I no longer have acne, itchy skin. It extremely reduced keratosis pilaris on my shoulders, arms, and legs, there are a lot fewer little spots on them and almost no redness. Also, spots on my back are almost completely gone. I’ve been using it a few weeks now and every once and a while I’ll have a small break out but nothing like before. It’s only been 3 weeks showers and already my back is smooth and the left behind scars are lighter than they were. I had despaired ever finding anything that didn't make my skin hurt and did alleviate my body acne after a shower. My skin is so soft that I have found myself petting my arm because of how nice it feels. I never thought I would find something that would clear my body acne and this stuff is so amazing. Between the price, fragrance, and overall confidence this bottle gives you, has almost no smell too which I'm fine with. Happy with this, there is no reason not to go for it. I’ll continue using this for a long long time.

Products for body acne You must have this one!👇
In the hot summer, the back is also a problem besides the facial skin. There will be some acne on the back, which is caused by the unsmooth skin pores. I have been looking for some effective solutions. MARIO BADESCU - A.H.A Botanical Body Soap$18/236ML This is a body soap that I like very much. It can sooth and relaxes the body, while designed to leave skin feeling thoroughly clean and refreshed. A. H. A. Botanical Body Soap is formulated with an invigorating blend of fruit enzymes, Ginseng, and Linden to revitalize skin with every shower. A. H. A. Botanical Body Soap is the best-selling body wash of MARIO BADESCU. It smells good because it is grapefruit-infused. This is the ideal shower gel for all skin types, whether you are dull and dry skin, oily and problematic skin. The cleansing ingredients contained in it can effectively reduce skin pore blockage and oil secretion. So as to suppress acne on the back or other parts of the body. The use of MARIO BADESCU A. H. A. Botanical Body Soap is also very simple. Use a soft cloth or sponge to apply body soap to wet skin. After that, rinse off thoroughly. It is important to note that this product is specially designed for the body, so do not use it on face. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water. On the other hand, this kind of product can also be used as a hand disinfectant. After washing thoroughly, I recommend that you use a gentle body lotion to strengthen your body's hydration. For acne on the back and chest, we must not take it lightly when we are taking physical care. We must keep our bodies clean and dry. At the same time, we must change our underwear in time. Only by paying close attention to all aspects can the skin be smooth and flawless.

Not My Favorite Cleanser
I really love this cleanser! This lightly cleanses your skin and I feel it doesn’t remove all the oil off your skin with realizing some of that oil is still needed while still removing the dirty and unnecessary oil 🎃- this has fragrance in it. Which is not a nice benefit in my opinion as it CAN lead to skin irritation but if it works for your skin work it! There’s no long term downfalls so far to using this product although personally I would use a different cleanser Review- This cleanser I got as a sample at Ulta and I really like it! I normally use a heavy duty cleanser like African black soap but this one I really love also! I recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin because it is really nice and not too rough on skin Rating- I gave this a 5 star because it really does everything it says it’ll do and gives you a nice clean feeling Purchasing- I could see myself buying this in the future but after this is gone I probably will stick with my black soap. Not because I dislike it! Just my preference (:MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

Battle of the Face Cleansers
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked the face washes I currently have open right now based on how they worked for me personally (starting from favorite). My all time favorite is COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser because I can actually tell a difference in my skin, unlike the other cleansers and can be used AM and PM. . COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Key Ingredients: Tea Tree and Beta Hydroxy Acids (work together to refine pores, control oil, and soften skin). Texture/Consistency: Gel that turns to foam Scent: Very strong Tea Tree scent Price: $14 for 5.07 oz Experience: I use this as my AM cleanser and it does a good job of removing the previous night’s skincare and having a new base for my AM skincare. It foams a lot, so only need a small amount of product. Since I’ve been using this, my face has gotten more smooth and not as oily throughout the day. I knocked off a star since the scent is so strong of tea tree. Repurchase/Recommend?: I will repurchase this and recommend this because it’s a great value and only need a small amount of product. My combo oily skin also agrees with this formula, I’m so excited to use it this summer and see how and if it helps my skin. . MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser Key Ingredients: Glycolic acid (exfoliates the skin and dissolves dulling dead skin cells to help refine pores and retexturize uneven skin), and a soothing blend of chamomile, marshmallow, safe, St. John’s wort, and yarrow extracts (work together to provide additional rejuvenating benefits that help re-balance and leave skin radiant). Texture/Consistency: Gel that turns to foam Scent: Price: $16 for 6 oz / 177 mL Experience: I use this maybe 2-3 times a week (as directed for oily skin) and haven’t noticed much of a difference in my skin. It performs just like any other cleanser to me. I use it as my second cleanse and it’s just meh. Honestly not impressed with this and glad I got it as a free sample. Repurchase/Recommend?: I would not repurchase or recommend this, I haven’t noticed any special benefit over any other cleanser. . philosophy - Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser Key Ingredients: Salicylic Acid (helps prevent breakouts). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: Very strong orange scent Price: $22 for 8 oz Experience: Even after using this a couple times a week as my second cleanse at night, I’ve only seen a minimal amount of reduction in my acne and can’t contribute it solely to this. The scent is so strong that I can smell it for a while after washing my face. It can be difficult to completely wash off the face. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, too expensive for what it does.

This is everything that I use (though I alternate most of these things, some are daily use) for my face/neck. Does anyone else use any of these? I’m obsessed with The Ordinary for the value CosRx for the quality, and also masking rn. I usually mask 3x a week now that outside is closed and I switch between sheet, overnight, and modeling. Though I’m looking for a peeling or clay mask for my very large t zone pores. Any recommendations?

MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Rosewater Toner MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater I love almost all of Mario Badescu’s products but I use these products everyday! I start with the cleansing gel. It has really minimized my pores and is super fresh. After that I use the toner which has really made my skin clear. Finally I spritz myself with the facial spray and add a bit of moisturizer🧴. I love these products and I hope you enjoy them to!!
