For hundreds of years, people have been coming to the United States in search of the American Dream. Chemist and cosmetologist Mario Badescu was one such person. Nearly 50 years ago, he left his native Romania and found himself in New York City. With a dream to create a signature skin care line, he opened a one-room skin care salon in his midtown Manhattan apartment. Today, his products are used throughout the world and that one-room salon has expanded to become a 36-room full-service skin care salon—and a classic Manhattan institution. His story is at the heart of the American Dream. It's President's day! To celebrate this patriotic holiday, we're offering up to $20 off your entire order and free shipping!
