How Do I Love Thee, Mario Badescu

I LOVE Mario Badescu products. I recently ran out of my favorite product of all, the Rosewater Aloe Facial Spray. Turns out, no one actually carries it in store. Nordstrom only carries one product, and Planet Beauty lacked this alone! So, I had to pay shipping...something I try to avoid at all costs. Luckily, I found an online coupon for 15% off my order, so that was a sort of balm on my passionately-hating-to-pay-shipping wound.

When it showed up at my house, they had kindly included a full sample kit of products...five to be exact. They weren't the skimpy packet kind, but actual mini jars and bottles. That warmed my heart considerably.

And, let's just state again that this spray is so great. I use it both morning and evening...especially in the morning before my mineral makeup since I can be prone to little flakies around the nose and mouth.

Wonderful Spray

I also highly recommend the acne products. They are gentle, but oh so effective.

On a total side note, does anyone read my blog? I have been in a desert of commentless blogging. Not to sound neurotic and insecure, but post me a comment!!

I read! - it's even on my igoogle list of bookmarks. I have been reading up on these Mario whatshisface products and they seem to promise a lot. I have bought the buffering lotion (i think it's called),,, I eagerly await it's arrival and if it doesn't work I will be sad. I can't understand how they can be so effective AND so gentle!

Thanks for the reassurance, Sarah. Even if you are my only reader, I would post for you alone! Buffering lotion is awesome. Just use it every other day. I swear by it for the hormonal, cystic acne that nothing else works on. Good choice!
