I’ve tried every skin care product out there, from the pricey and unimpressive to drug store brands, and everything in between. I’ve got oily, sensitive, sometimes combination, occasionally acne-prone, and soon-to-be maturing skin. It’s a real blast. One day I’ve got a zit, another day flaky skin, a fine line here, an age spot there. For years, my skin has looked like a mess. In my search for the perfect solution to my skin care concerns, I finally stumbled upon what has been my across-the-board cure-all—Mario Badescu. Since using the brand full-time for the last four months, my cystic acne has ceased, my whiteheads are few and far between, my dry patches took a hike and even the small fine lines around my eyes seem to be on hiatus. I found a skincare line that works—and it works wonders. (By the way, no one is paying me to write this review. I’m speaking purely from my own experience.) I originally got started with the line by filling out an extensive online questionnaire at mariobadesu.com where someone got back to me within two weeks and sent me a bundle of samples to try. They were all perfect. Shortly afterwards, I discovered that the Beauty 360 in Santa Cruz (a new store adjacent to CVS on Mission Street) also sells the line. The staff at Santa Cruz’s CVS are specialized in the line and know it well. They’ll spend extensive time with you to ensure that you find what you’re looking for to solve your skin woes, and they’ll also send you home with a bunch of samples to try. (In future blogs, I’ll spotlight specific Mario Badescu products, including their effective acne line.) Mario Badescu offers a multitude of products including cleaners, moisturizers, serums, masks, scrubs and much more. It’s time to get skin deep.
