Welcome to #MarioMonthlyEdit, where you (yes, you) get a sneak peek at our current essentials. If you missed our last installment, check it out here.
Leaves are falling. Halloween stores are setting up shop left and right. If you had any doubt (we’re still experiencing the odd warm-weather day in New York City, so it’s understandable), take a look around: Fall is officially in the air, ladies and gents. Dry air, inevitable chill, and all.
Sweaters may be out of storage, but skin is always in—which is why October is all about maintaining balance as the seasons continue to shift. This is the perfect time to start easing those heavier, creamier moisturizers back into regimen while retiring lightweight formulas. If you’re not sure where to start, take a look at the skincare we’re into this month:
Autumn air can leave skin tight, ashy, and dry—which is why it’s imperative you moisturize daily. This classic formula is a Badescu best-seller and fall favorite for men and women alike: it’s a rich, nourishing formula infused with Olive Oil to help alleviate dryness for softer, smoother, more radiant-looking skin.
If you’re worried about feeling sticky or greasy post-hand cream application, don’t. Our Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E, though creamy in texture, boasts a fast-absorbing formula that sinks in quickly for intense moisture sans the heavy residue. Antioxidant oils nourish dehydrated skin while smoothing the look of fine lines so your hands feel silky-soft, always.
There’s never a time when we don’t want to glow, but if you need reasons, we got ‘em. Fall weather, personal heaters, and back-to-school stress tend to leave the complexion a little lackluster, which is where masking comes in. For an instant pick-me-up, (and 15-20 minutes of built-in TLC), apply our Enzyme Revitalizing Mask where your skin is looking dull, tired, or dehydrated.
If there’s one product you need this season, it’s this. Unlike most facial oils, our Rose Hips Nourishing Oil boasts a lightweight yet moisture-intensive formula that helps revive and smooth dehydrated skin. Rosehip Extract, a natural source of essential fatty acids and antioxidant Vitamin C, brightens lackluster skin while hydrating any dry patches—revealing softer, more radiant skin.
It’s creamy, it’s fresh, it’s oil-free—making it the ideal cleanser for all skin types. It never leaves behind a residue, nor does it leave the skin feeling tight or dry. (Enzyme Cleansing Gel fans, you’ll love this face wash as a fall/winter alternative!)
This is the ideal, in-between-seasons toner. It’s a gentler alternative to an astringent (like our Cucumber Cleansing Lotion), but it still offers enhanced cleansing thanks to its Witch Hazel content.
