Hello my Lovelies,
I was recently gifted a skincare set from Mario Badescu and I was excited to try it out and give you guys my honest review of the set. Before I do that I wanted to tell you a little about the brand if you don’t know already. Mario Bedascu’s story started over 50 years ago when he decided he wanted to create a brand that was “Simple, Gentle & Effective Skin Care” They celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2017 and the celebration continues. The brand started in his Manhattan apartment turned studio and been flourishing since then.
The brands philosophy is “Simple, Gentle & Effective Skin Care” I have had the pleasure of trying out just a few products long enough to form an opinion. First, here are the products I was gifted…

I was definitely excited to try out these products. I had heard about the brand but not enough to make me go out and purchase. (side note, I was gifted these products by Karrueche Tran) and she gave me the perfect opportunity to try them out. So thank you for that mamas <3
I started using these products a little over 2 weeks ago. I fell in love with the Rose Hand Cream. OMG!!! The smell of this product is amazing. If you love the smell of roses you will love it. The cream made my hands feel soft without a greasy feeling. All of these products had amazing effects on my skin. My hands felt noticeably softer, my facial skin looked brighter & clearer. I literally carry and use the Lip Balm & Rose Hand Cream everyday. When I am getting ready for the day I love to use the Witch Hazel & Rose Water Toner and to spritz the Rose Water Facial spray after my makeup application.
What I also liked about the brand is that you can take a quiz and get a FREE skin analysis done and purchase your products based on your results. They have a large arrangement of products (So there’s something for everyone) all with nice light smells. They currently have a President’s Day sale going on that you can take advantage of.
I hope you found this post helpful & resourceful.
