Read on to meet the Mario Badescu match to your skin concern.
Mario BadescuHyaluronic Dew Cream, £ 24,95
Concern: Moisture-Sapped Skin
When skin feels parched, it’s tempting to reach for the heavy creams, but try Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Dew Cream instead. It’s a featherweight formula packed full of hydrating hyaluronic acid, plus a healthy dose of antioxidant-rich green tea. Essentially, it’s all the moisture (and more), without the slathered-on finish.
Mario BadescuDrying Lotion, £ 17,00
Concern: Sudden Breakouts
The product that finally put an end to the toothpaste trick (hallelujah). This dab-on spot treatment is laced with exfoliating, clarifying salicylic acid and calamine – great for calming angrier blemishes. Simply dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment (no need to shake first), apply, and watch the magic happen.
Mario BadescuFacial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater, £ 4,95
Concern: Morning Puffiness
A bunch of botanical soothers, including aloe vera, anti-inflammatory rosewater and hydrating herbs are ready to cool and calm your skin each morning. We’d also recommend keeping the multitasking spray on hand for a midday moisture top-up, to set your makeup, or even to rehydrate hair lengths.
Mario BadescuEnzyme Cleansing Gel, £ 14,00
Concern: Oil-Slick Skin
Relentlessly oily T-zones are often a sign of skin dehydration; can you believe it! But if, after upping your moisture ‘skintake’, oily zones still persist, give Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel a go. It’s a gentle chemical exfoliator, designed to lift away makeup, dirt and sebum without drying the skin. It helps skin glow, but in the right way.
Mario BadescuOil Free Moisturizer SPF30, £ 27,00
Concern: Lost Elasticity
The secret to wrinkle reduction is plumping from within - which is exactly what this age-pausing moisturiser is designed to do. How? By calling on collagen, of course. That, cottonseed oil (a natural nourisher, rich in antioxidant vitamin E), and broad-spectrum SPF to help shield skin from more sun-sparked lines.
