SPOTTED!

We’re all about sharing the love.

WHO: Ingrid, also known as the charming Miss Glamorazzi on YouTube. A beauty guru who humbly claims to be a “self-professed beauty nerd,” nail polish addict, and avid vlogger. She’s the girl next door who you wish was your best friend. What’s not to love?

WHAT: The Rosewater Facial Spray.

WHERE: Miss Glamorazzi’s March 2012 favorites video(we’re addicted to these monthly compilations!)

WHY: She’s been obsessed with rose this month. It’s light, floral, refreshing – and she’s discovered it’s lovely for her skin.

“I’m now using this as my new facial toner… and I think my skin is really happy about that… I’ve been trying to use things that are a little bit more gentle, soothing and very hydrating, and my skin has been drinking it all up and loving it.

“I highly recommend this facial spray; it’s great to use as a toner… and it just feels very refreshing on your skin… I love this. It’s great to use if you just feel like you need a little pick-me-up throughout the day to refresh your face, or if you’re on a plane…transfer it to a smaller spray bottle to hydrate your skin.”

We’re so happy to hear you (and your skin!) are loving your first Mario product!

SWEET FOR SPRING

As Julie Andrews would so beautifully sing, “These are a few of [our] favorite things…” come spring: all things pretty, sweet and oh-so-delightful.

  • Strawberry Tonic Mask: Pink may be pretty, and strawberries so very sweet, but this Alpha Hydroxy rich clay mask means business when it comes to keeping skin clear and healthy.
  • Papaya Body Lotion: Fruity, fresh, and simply divine. A lightly fragranced blend that softens while improving dull, dry skin for a truly radiant glow all over.

LET’S TALK: PRE-SHAVE CONDITIONERS & WHY YOU NEED THEM

We all know what shaving creams and gels are; they’re essential to the process for the smoothest shave possible. It’s a given.

But a pre-shave conditioner?

This isn’t just for the gentleman – ladies, listen (or, technically speaking, read) up.

Simplicity is always a beautiful thing, but never underestimate the power of adding that extra step to your regimen for a truly complete pampering of the skin. The results are in the extra effort.

The Pre-Shave Conditioner, packed with Chamomile and Lavender extract to reduce redness, is the key to helping prevent skin irritations and razor burns that come with shaving. Most associate it with men’s skincare – to tackle that beard for an ultra-smooth, morning shave – but it’s perfect for women too. Be it facial hair or the bikini lines, underarms, and legs, this soothing gel softens course hair to allow for a truly close and comfortable shave.

Massage into wet skin prior to your favorite shaving cream, and let it soak into the skin for a few minutes. Then apply your shaving cream and shave as usual.

The difference is in not only the feel, but the touch.

Do you feel the difference?
