mario badescu is my new BFF ♥
It only takes one bad break out to make you realize that you need to update your skin regimen. My skin had been behaving nicely since February, yes it was oily & dry at times but it wasn’t anything my cetaphil & mint julep masque couldn’t tackle. About three weeks ago my skin freaked out. I broke out at all those spots that are impossible to cover up, hence the lack of FOTD pots. I broke out on my right cheek, on my upper lip, and both sides on my chin. I tried my hardest to dry them out but those babies did not want to go away :( Finally about a week and half after the initial break out they started drying out, it felt like forever!! Now I was left with bright red & purple marks all over my face. I picked up the Mario Badescu whitening mask @ Nordstrom and began to apply it religiously. I purposely ignored the instructions that say to leave it on for 10mins. I left it on over night and during the day at times for more than 3hrs. I saw results immediately but I thought maybe it was just my wishful thinking and I asked my husband to check it out and he confirmed it as well. Now all the red is gone and the darker spots have lightened. I’m just sad I didn’t hear about this product sooner. 50,000 gold stars for Mario Badescu :) On another note, I also tried the Rose water spray from them & it smells amazing. I use it after I do extractions & it really calms my skin and acts as a toner.
