Mario Badescu is a no hype, results-oriented skin care line. He was a chemist and a cosmetologist, giving him a unique vision of what skin care should be. In 1967, he opened his salon doors in NYC. His signature European facials were quickly coveted by celebrities and those seeking healthy, youthful faces.
Mario Badescu is unique in that the line is botanically based without an overabundance of ingredients in each formulation. The goal is preservation and radiance of the skin. Many times, when a product becomes sought after and beloved by the famous, the price point becomes unreasonable. Not the case with this line. It was important to Mr. Badescu that anyone could gain access to excellent skin care. The company maintains the exceptionally low prices with a no-frills approach. The packaging is all very simple and plainly labeled with the idea that what is inside the package should be the focus. They are also very clearly labeled Made in USA.
The packaging is predictable and dependable. The ingredients are familiar. The descriptions are to the point and clearly defined. I appreciate that.
Mario Badescu is sold in many stores like Ulta, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor and can also be purchased online. The online store has a simple questionnaire to help you select products based on your specific skin needs. The questionnaire only takes a couple of minutes and is very accurate with its recommendations.
My favorite products are the Seaweed Cleansing Lotion and the Azulene Calming Mask. I haven't tried it yet, but the Hyaluronic Eye Cream is next on my list. As an esthetician I am always investigating product ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid is one that I like to see. It binds its own weight in moisture 1000 times and is highly beneficial for the skin's hydration and overall glow.
Go ahead and check this line out. You won't be disappointed.
