They have a lot of skin care products to choose from. And I personally didn't know what to get. So I was just looking through the website and I found this "Skin Care Analysis" under their "Consulting" tab at the top of their page.
It's a questionnaire where you answer questions about your skin. Some example questions that I remember are whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or a combination of both. They also ask you how often you break out and whether your break outs are big, medium, or small. Another question was also whether you've consulted a dermatologist.
At the end of the questionnaire, they inform you that you will be getting an email sometime and that's where they tell you which products best fits your skin type. I didn't get mine till after 2 weeks. haha. And i actually forgot all about it.
Anyways, after a few more weeks, I recieved a package from Mario Badescu. I had no idea what it was but when i opened it, I saw that they sent me free samples of the products that they emailed me. And believe me, it really made my day:D
My skin care package included:
1. a Product Guide
2. a Product Application Guide
3. Enzyme Cleansing Gel
4. Special Cucumber Lotion
5. Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF 17)
6. Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin
7. Orange Tonic Mask
8. Drying Cream
The Product Guide" (left) shows you all the merchandise available which you can also purchase if you'd like. And the "Product Application Guide" (right) has all the instructions for your application. It tells you what to use in the morning and at night. Pretty cool, huh?
These are the 4 creams that I used:)
This is the Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin. It has a spongy texture to it. But once you put it on your skin, it melts and it becomes creamy.
This is the Oil Free Moisturizer. It's very creamy and it feels just like a normal drug store face cream. It also has a nice smell to it.
The Drying Cream would have to be my favorite. It looks like a normal lotion but once you apply it to your face, it doesn't spread easily. Although it has a strong medicine-like smell to it, I really like it because it really prevented me from breaking out. It also makes your pimples smaller in less than 24 hours.
The Orange Tonic Mask was also another favorite of mine. It has a citrus fragrance that helps you relax while you're waiting for it to dry. Everytime after I wash it off, my skin definitely felt softer.
I washed my face with the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. This one smelled more like Cucumber than the Special Cucumber Lotion. And I have no idea why. haha. The Cucumber Lotion is more like a toner. Once I rubbed it in my face, I definitely felt some stinging from my break outs.
These samples lasted for about 3 weeks. It actually depends on the amount you use everytime. If I were to rate it from 1 to 10, I'm kinda stuck between 8 and 9. Some of the products worked for me but some didn't. But overall, I'm really satisfied with the results. I'm actually thinking if purchasing the Drying cream and the Orange Tonic Mask:D
And If you asked me, I do recommend it. It's kinda cool because they give you the products that matches your akin type. After all, there's no harm in trying, right?
