As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.

  37. I just bought a ton of your products! This is next on my list 🙂

  38. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Herbal Hydrating Serum. I got married August of last year. I few weeks before my wedding I noticed that my face looked bumpy and it was peeling. My skin has a tendency to do that but it was peeling more than usual. (perfect timing) My skin didn’t look its best and the products that I was using just wasn’t working. I was in a state of panic. The last thing I wanted was to have terrible skin, especially on my wedding day! I tried everything from facial masks to using an home mircodermabrasion kit. Nothing seemed to help. I ran to the beauty store, Ulta (at this point hoping for a miracle). A wonderful lady behind a counter immediate suggested the herbal hydrating serum from Mario Badescu, after I explained to her my situation. She said that the serum is a product that she uses and she sees great results on herself. She insisted that I try it. I decided to give it a go! That was probably the best decision I made for my skin! I saw IMMEDIATE results and my skin never looked smoother. Not only did my skin look flawless on my wedding day, it still looks better than ever today, all thanks to the Herbal Hydrating Serum. I never go anywhere without it. I apply it in the morning before I start my day and at night before bed. It also works as a great base coat before I apply on my makeup. And all it take is just a small amount! simply put, it is the BEST! I am a lifelong fan of the Hydrating Serum!

  39. I have such dry and aging skin that this would be so great to win.
    Thanks for the chance!

  56. I’m in love with Mario Badescu products! My skin has been illuminating ever since I found what works for me and believe me I tried it all. I am constantly sharing what I call “the good news!” MARIO! His product line is phenomenal and I feel blessed just to have found it. I would love to try this serum and add it to my on going collection. It’s by far the best skin care line with the most interactive websites and blogs out there. Totally IN LOVE!

  60. Love all the products I’ve tried. Been thinking about giving this one a whirl.

  61. I live for Mario Badescu. I found a trick with the drying lotion. I put it all over my nose at night, in the morning all the blackheads are gone!!! The enzyme gel cleanser is the best!! I love it when I buy at ulta and get little sample products to try. I want to try this to…pick me, pick, me!

  62. I would love to try this out!

  63. I am running out of serum and perhaps this might make a good replacement for my sensitive skin?

    Thanks MB!

  72. I’ve been searching for the right Hydrating Serum for a long time. This product might be it! And finally my search would be over.

  73. My skin gets oily in the summer and I still haven’t found the best moisturizer to help it so I’d really like to give this oil-free gel formula a try.

  74. I suffer from incredibly dry skin in the winter so this would be a perfect skin solution for me! xoxo

  75. This is exactly what I need for the summer. I hope I have a chance.

  76. Herbal Hydrating Serum really saved my skin after my dermatologist put me on very strong topical treatments to treat my adult acne. After a few days into using the topical treatments my skin was so dried out by the retinol-A & sulfur combination but he told me to still go with the treatment. So I went to my favorite counter at Lord and Taylor’s on 5th Ave in NYC and they suggested I try this product… I was very hopeful and that night I prayed I would be restored and sure enough my skin was not flaking in the morning and good as new! After the next application I was back to normal! This is by far the best hydrating serum I have ever used and I am so happy and really a true fanatic of Mario Badescu because they have something for every skin issue that can occur!

  77. I’d love to give this a try! The MB products I own are amazing and I bet this one is too 🙂

  78. This would be the perfect moisturizer for the winter! My skin is really oily, but once in a while the harsh cold of Canadian winters can dry it out. This oil-free formula would be lovely to use without causing breakouts!

  79. Oily skin needs hydration love too.

  80. Oooh, oooh!!! Pick me, pick me!! I would LOVE to try this!

  85. Oh I really need this! Would be the perfect birthday present 🙂

  86. I would love to win this product simply because your sample products helped my face not have broken capillaries and I only used them for a week and I can’t wait to order more of your products in the future, I also let my mom use some of the samples I got and they worked by getting rid of her age spots. So she is a fan of the product too, and we both are thankful for your products being the most amazing products we ever used.

  87. I have been using this product since I started my Accutane treatment and it is awesome! It helps cut down on the dry patches I’ve been getting. It would be great to win a bottle1

  88. I so want this so bad. Time to get skin ready for summer.

  89. I have extremely dry skin; nothing I tried kept it hydrated. I started using Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum a few months ago and it saved my skin! Now when I wake up my face is soft and silky. This product is amazing and I recommended it to everyone.

  101. Summer is drying out my skin! I need help immediately 🙂 Can’t wait to try this product!

  102. Ive been wanting to try this and currently yahoo is recommending as an alternative to a creamy lotion this summer! Just ordered my first batch of mb products and they get here today! woooooo!!!!

  103. This product is perfect for my oily skin, especially with the summer heat and humidity already in full force! Keeps my face hydrated without adding any shine, keeps oil at bay throughout the day, and helps prevent breakouts. The Herbal Hydrating Serum really is the perfect summer product!

  104. The sales rep talked to me about this product and gave me a sample. Loved it. Its a facial in a bottle and its light so a little goes a long way. My face felt fabulous all day.

  105. What a difference Mario products have made! My forehead wrinkles are almost gone thanks to the cellulite drops and seaweed night cream. Also gone are the small face pimples due to hormonal changes.Didn’t need to use acne products for them, my daily mario products did the job and balanced out my combo skin. The herbal hydrating serum is the best product for me to use as a daily moisturizer in the humid Florida weather.

  106. I love this serum! It’s like the ‘Goldilocks’ of hydration…not too little, not too much, but just right!

  107. This serum would give me the perfect boost of hydration right now. The weather has been so crazy lately and it definitely plays out on my skin!

  108. I have irritatingly dry skin and I’ve been told bu many people that this is the perfect addition to my MB collection. I would love to try this!

  109. Sounds like a great product!

  110. I absolutely love Mario Badescu products.I use the glycolic toners & the silver powder. Would love to add this to my skincare routine!

  111. I have never tried your products, but I would like to see how they work on over 50 skin! Thanks for the chance!

  112. Love these products! And this serum looks wonderful! Fingers crossed! <3

  113. I live in the desert and have to deal with dry skin every day. I like that it can be layered over moisturizer. The more moisture I have, the better.

  114. My summer skin is always thirsty and this serum might just be the answer this year 🙂

  115. I’ve already commented on this before. But I was in ulta this past weekend grabbing my enzyme cleansing gel and a lady was curious about Mario. I couldn’t help but chime in and offer some assistance! I told her I was going to share the good news with her and she ended up purchasing three different products. If you are considering using Mario, don’t hesitate it’s phenomenal! #teammario!

    • Thanks for helping her out Ashley! We’re so glad to see that the products have worked so well for you!

  116. Just started using Mario Badescu and I am in love!!! I hope I win 🙂
