Did I let an 18 year old influence my skin care routine? Why yes, yes I did.
Confession: I love Kylie Jenner’s snapchat.
And when I saw she was using Mario Badescu products on her face.. I was like, what’s good enough for Kylie, is good enough for Brittany.
I had been seeing the Mario Badescu products online for months and was really eager to try them. But of course, I live in Canada and these things aren’t as easily accessible here, and I was too lazy to order them online. Enter Anthropologie. I was browsing the clothing store when I noticed in their beauty section a whack of Mario Badescu products, and I got seriously excited. I must have smelled and read every bottle in the store before deciding on the Super Collagen Mask and the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater.
I am really into masks lately.. they’re just really fun to apply, and I always feel like you can’t go wrong, as they’re all (usually!) really great for your skin. There were two or three different masks to choose from, and I’ve yet to try a “Collagen” mask, so I figured what the heck. The Super Collagen Mask retails for $18/Cdn. It promises to hydrate and smooth skin that is in need of a lift, and improve skins elasticity to reveal firmer, youthful skin! I like to apply masks with a paddle makeup brush, and this one goes on pretty easily. I am not a huge fan of the scent, I’m not quite sure what it is, but it’s not unbearable. I left the mask on for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. It made my skin feel really smooth and clean, exactly what I’m expecting from a mask! I really enjoyed this mask, and I’d recommend it for sure, but I think I’d want to try another one of Mario’s masks once this one is finished.
The Facial Spray is AMAZING. I am seriously in love with it, and will 100% be repurchasing. It only cost $7/Cdn, which is unreal, and I think it’s worth every penny. Typically facial sprays are a bit on the expensive side, and you’re left wondering what exactly is this pricey smelling water? But this one is super affordable, and smells UNREAL! I love the scent of rose and aloe, which I previously did not know I was a fan of. It is super hydrating, I love to spray it on my face after I’ve washed my face and applied my night creams. When I wake up in the morning I can still feel the hydration in my face, and it feels amazing! I definitely recommend picking this up, I know I will be buying a second one very soon!
All in all, my first experience with Mario Badescu was great. I wish I had known sooner that Anthropologie carried his products, and that they were so affordable. I think because a Kardashian-Jenner was using them, I expected them to be priced in the high-end region of skin care products, but for $18 and $7, anyone can afford to pick these up!
Have you tried anything from Mario Badescu? What should I try next? Tell me in the comments!
