*i only font about products that i feel strongly about.
any product that i font about has been used.
i’ve been patiently waiting to font about mario badescu.
you know when i love something,
i’m gonna give you an entry about it.
so i started testing their products at the beginning of the year.
i sorta became obsessed with the results.
let’s get into how i got introduced to them…
as you know in earlier entries,
i was really digging skinceuticals and what it did for my skin.
they introduced me to the power of serums and i thank them for that.
those products are way too expensive and i couldn’t afford them any longer.
around the beginning of this year,
i met a vixen at my old job whose skin was pretty crazy.
her face was littered with acne.
at the time,
i was having a few break outs as well.
we started to bonded over skin care regiments as we became cool.
she mentioned she was gonna try something she saw at urban outfitters.
one of her friends was using a product and swore by every drop.
in like a week after her telling me,
and paying attention to my own face issues,
she walked up to me and i noticed how nice her her face was looking.
it stopped me in my tracks.
she wore make up,
and i use to see all the acne underneath,
but her skin was exceptionally clear.
it was glowing af,
her excess oiliness was gone,
and 98% of her break outs was out the door.
i was blown tf away!!!!!!!
so she directed me to this:
i couldn’t stop praising her new skin,
that the following day,
she went out and bought me a kit to try out.
talk about a blessing.
“you get good skin!”
“…and you get good skin!”
i remember one of the vet foxholers,
mentioning how good glycolic acid works.
“Glycolic Acid is the holy grail for exfoliation, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin. Products that contain Glycolic Acid are used often to treat scarring, skin discoloration and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.” – via skinstore
since it was one of the products in that brightening kit,
and i was getting familiar with it before,
i was excited to give it a shot.
i noticed a difference after that first night i used it.
i don’t think i waited that long for results.
i only used the brightening kit at night,
but continued to use ( x my regular face wash procedure ) during the day.
it was working so well that when i saw the pretty vixen for an outing,
she made a compliment on how good my skin was looking.
i started to tell her about it and i remember her yelling out:
“OMG I AM USING THAT TOO!!!!”
she had to say no more.
so i went from using the kit,
to buying the glycolic acid separately,
and then the wonder that is their “sea weed night cream”.
it made sense to for me to reach out to mario badescu.
they responded so kindly to my email last week,
but in a shocking twist,
they wanted to send me a pr package of their oily skin line for review.
all of my legit reactions when i got the package yesterday:
i’m so excited to introduce this to the foxhole.
i’m more than satisfied with the results i have achieved.
so i’m going to test all of the the products i was sent.
i will font in like a week (week 1/2) my results.
before bed last night,
glycolic acid cleanser
special mask for oily skin
vitamin c serum
seaweed night cream
when i woke up:
control moisturizer for oily skin
…and no issues so far.
i feel i’m getting better results than other products i’ve tried.
so we’ll meet back to discuss soon,
but if you’d like to start:
i hope you achieve glowing results as well!
disclaimer: this is my own personal experience with this product.
what works for me may not work for you.
trial and error is involved.
if these products don’t work for you,
you’ll find something that will.
