Mario Badescu has literally changed my life. I've been dealing with acne since puberty and as I got older, I thought I would grow out of it. I didn't. My acne wasn't severe per say, but it was noticeably there- to the point where I thought when people looked at me, all they saw was acne. I was just about to give up on everything. I went to the dermatologist, I tried Proactiv, and I spend a great deal of money at beauty stores looking for a promise to the end of this curse. Then, my sister had recommended me Mario Badescu. I was a bit hesitant at first but now I own over a dozen different products from the same skin care line. I have to say that it's amazing. If you use it as directed, on a regular basis, the results are phenomenal. I've only been consistently using their products for about eight weeks now, but already people have told me how much better my skin looks. It feels better clean and soft. I look better. I have more confidence. Even though I still have some scars, they've lightened considerably and I haven't had a major break out in a while. I honestly don't know what I would do without this skin care system. I finally don't have to worry about the inflamed pimples on my cheeks or the puffiness under my eyes. When I look in the mirror, I see my skin improving and it makes me feel so much better. I recommend Mario Badescu to everyone. I wish I could thank the man himself for making something that actually works. For the first time in 7 years, I no longer feel like an adolescent with acne. I feel like I'm moving towards becoming a lady and I don't know. It's a good feeling.
The products I use are:
ance facial cleanser
special cucumber lotion
rose hips nourishing oil scars
hydro moisturizer with vitamin c
glycolic eye cream
facial spray with aloe, herbs, and rosewater almost my favorite product, I use for my hair too
whitening mask scars
super collagen mask
These products help me prevent future breakouts as well as keeping my skin clean. I'm in love and I will probably buy more. D

I just have to say that I'm hooked on MB. I'm a fairly new customer and have tried some samples and was hooked since. I placed an order for a lot of full-sized products shortly after. I'm very pleased with all the products I've received and they have worked great for my skin, makes me feel healthy and soft. Takes away the redness and locks moisture in. Best of all, it works well with my Proactiv, and most skin care products don't. My new skincare line is MB! Thank you so much for making me feel great! One more thing - the prices are definitely worth it, because a small amount lasts a long time!

Recently I had an outbreak of cystic acne that I was unable to clear up. I consulted with a couple of dermatologists who stated it was hormonal and there was nothing I could do. I visited the Mario Badescu website and bought the products I thought would help after answering the questionnaire. In less than four weeks I saw amazing results and several months later I continue to see tremendous results. My skin has been free of acne and the dark spots are lightening. It was been truly amazing.

I started visiting Dermatologists at the age of 12. Ever since then I have tried EVERYTHING. From pills, peels, lasers, home remedies, herbal treatments and the list continues. I visited a highly respected Doctor and facial professional, half way through the consultation she turned to me and said, "Honey you've tried everything, I'm not sure if I can help." Until then I had never fully realized what I've been through. I walked in with complete confidence and left with no hope. She was right, there wasn't anything she could do for me that hasn't been done. At that point,I had the choice of waiting it out and a very serious acne medication. Luckily, in the midst of all the chaos I found the lovely Mario Badescu. It has given my confidence towards my skin, the confidence that I've never had growing up. All of my life I've dealt with my troublesome acne skin and now I have Mario Badescu to thank for turning it around. I have made all of my family and friends to jump in and use as well. I love you Mario Badescu, you are an investment.

I have suffered from severe acne including cystic acne and extremely oily skin since I was a freshman in high school. I began trying everything I could to get rid of this problem including changing my diet. NOTHING WORKED including proactive. I gave up!! Until I walked in to Ulta Beauty and they told me about Mario Badescu!! My skin began clearing up in less than 2 weeks! and I have now been using it for 4 months and my skin is clear and no breakouts and my pores have shrunk!! I LOVE MARIO BADESCU and have been telling everyone I know about it!!!

Normally, you are suppose to wait 4-6 weeks to truly see the results of a skin care product. Not true with Mario Badescu. After buying the Acne Starter kit my skin is no longer greasy and dry and my acne has cleared up in a matter of days. I have never bought a Mario Badescu product I didn't like and I am again pleased with the Acne Starter kit. Anytime a friend has any sort of skin issue I am quick to recommend these amazing products. Buy them now, they will not disappoint.

I never write reviews...but these products are worth passing on to those who are searching for products that actually deliver what they promise.I have only been using these products for two weeks, and I am AMAZED at the results. I have struggled with moderate acne sine I was teen and have tried it all...from home remedies to expensive over the counter, prescriptions etc. While I have been able to tame it down nothing has actually gone and and eradicated the problem the way these products have. I have been using the drying mask 3 times a week, the seaweed night cream nightly and the whitening mask every other day-plus the amazing moisturizer. The whitening mask has been the ONLY product I have ever used that has completely gotten rid of dark spots, in another week or so it looks like they will be all gone! They ACTUALLY are fading away, no makeup cover up required.As an African-American it is so hard to find products that work on my dark spots, what a relief to find affordable over the counter products that actually work! If your like me you are skeptical and pretty much tired of your skin repeating its cycles. I highly recommend these products to ANYONE who wants beautiful, glowing healthy looking skin.You will not be disappointed.

I cannot speak highly enough about Mario Badescu products for acne. I have always struggled with moderate acne, mainly around my chin area ever since I can remember. I have tried everything from Pro-Activ to ridiculously expensive prescription creams and face washes prescribed to me from a dermatologist. All of those worked for about a week and the problem was back. I used to blame it on the water I showered in or the environment that I lived in. It was poor managing of my skin and I was simply using the wrong products. Being a long time and loyal shopper at Nordstrom, I decided to invest a little more money into my skin as I did for my clothes. The woman at the counter helped me pick out a complete skin care line that was aimed towards MY problems, not just a generic "oily acne-prone skin" line. At the time, I had probably close to 10 or 12 breakouts on my chin. I took the products home Buffering Lotion, Silver Powder, Silver Healing Powder, Acne Serum, Special Cleansing C Astringent, Drying Mask I felt quite confident that I could knock these breakouts out for good. I applied the Silver Powder as directed then after I applied the Buffering Lotion. Before going to sleep that night, I applied the Anti-Acne Serum. OVERNIGHT MY SKIN WAS COMPLETELY CLEAR!!!! I have never had this happen before. Ever ever ever. My face was smooth, and NOT dry which is something that happens with a lot of acne products. My face felt refreshed and my skin was SO SO soft. Thank you Mario Badescu for creating amazing products that give back confidence to people, especially when something like acne is the only thing that can hold them back. Will always be a customer.

Oh yes your products do work. I'm bald and my head became a pimple farm whenever I went into the sun. My dermatologist provided me with expensive prescription shampoo and lotion. These were ineffective. A friend recommended Mario Badescu products and a rep recommended the buffering lotion and the acne facial cleanser. WIN!. I still have to ear a hat outdoors and I still use the shampoo as it doesn't seem to hurt anything but my scalp is so much better now. It is my pleasure to enthusiastically endorse your products and the way you do business. Thank you so much!- you really know skin!.

Suffering from PCOS-related cystic acne like I did for 10 years?
Then you MUST try Mario Badescu's buffering lotion: http://www.mariobadescu.com/buffering-lotion.
I was diagnosed with PCOS nearly 10 years ago a change in diet and exercise has minimized most of my related problems, but the cystic acne was something that just wouldn't go away...until I started using the buffering lotion.
I apply a thin layer over the acne-prone areas of my face particularly my chin every morning between washing my face and applying moisturizer/makeup, if I wear foundation at all now. This stuff is THAT good!
The lotion doesn't dry my skin out or cause it to become flaky, which is something the dozens of other anti-acne products I've tried and now kicked to the curb can't claim.
I can't tell you how many comments I get on my skin now! THANK YOU, MARIO BADESCU!
