Hey y’all! I can’t believe it’s graduation week. It’s crazy how fast it popped up. In other news, I wanted to share all about my skincare routine with Mario Badescu on the blog today. In all honesty, I have only used water on my face for as long as I can remember. I used Neutrogena and Cetophil on my face a little bit in high school, but it always irritated my skin and dried it out so much. I have pretty easy skin and am lucky to not have many issues with it, so water worked for me haha. I wanted to find something that worked well for me to take better care of my skin, and I’m so glad I chose Mario Badescu back in January. My skin looks and feels amazing now that I’ve been using it for a while. I got this set of a few products and this facial spray to start. I’m reviewing each of the products I’ve tried below:
Enzyme Cleansing Gel
I always start with this gel when I’m washing my face. It helps refresh my skin after a long day and clean all of my makeup off of my face. It smells amazing (it’s cucumber scented) and doesn’t irritate my skin at all.
Cucumber Cleansing Lotion
Next, I use the cucumber cleansing lotion on a cotton pad. This smells great also and doesn’t irritate my skin either. It helps get any last makeup that might still be in my skin.
Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17
This stuff makes my skin feel so soft and just overall refreshes my skin throughout the night. You only need to use a tiny bit of this for your whole face. I add my prescription cream from the dermatologist on top when necessary.
Super Rich Olive Body Lotion
I love this lotion! I have been using it on my legs before bed and it has helped so much with dry skin and just rehydrating and smoothing my legs.
I have never really tried masks before so this was new for me. I put this on after using the cleansing gel and lotion. You leave the mask on for 15-20 mins and then rinse. Ideally, you use the mask 2-3 times a week. I found that I needed to use a little bit more of the cleansing gel when rinsing it off to make sure I got it all.
Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea
This was the first product I saw that I was really interested in trying. It helps even out foundation and make it last throughout the day. I use two or three sprays after I do my foundation before my eye makeup and everything else. I would definitely recommend this product and love how my makeup looked after using it and later on after a long day.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these products if you are looking into a new skincare routine especially for sensitive and dry skin like mine. My biggest issue is evening out my skin-tone. I often have some redness in random places, and I have definitely noticed an improvement with this. The whole routine takes me probably 1o minutes when I don’t use the mask. Another plus is these products are affordable and won’t break the bank when you have to get more 🙂
