About the brand

Mario Badescu was a Romanian-born dermatologist with a bold vision. Being both a chemist and a cosmetologist, Mario had a very unique perspective about skin care, appreciating both the chemical nature and complexities of the skin, as well as the desire and innate satisfaction and confidence healthy, clean, radiant skin can give a person. Mario opened his salon in Manhattan, New York City in 1967, and began to develop his signature skin care product line. He brought his extensive knowledge of age-old, traditional skin care techniques to a whole new audience. The effectiveness of these products and his unparalleled European-style facials did not remain a secret for long, and soon Mario had drawn a loyal following of famous actors, actresses, and celebrities for whom skin care was important. True to their beliefs that everybody deserves good skin care, the brand offers effective, quality products at exceptional prices. Using simple, no-frills packaging is part of the reason they are able to do this because, at the end of the day, it’s the product inside that counts.

    Tot nu toe heeft het voor mij 1x gewerkt. Ik ben er mee aan het experimenter, het spul is wel fijn en droogt je huid niet uit.

    Fantastisch product! Bij mij en mijn kinderen werkt het prima. Ik lees heel afentoe dat er iemand is die zegt dat het bij haar of hem niet werkt. Maar ik heb alleen maar goede ervaringen!

    If you need to dry out a big oily spot this really helps. It may take 1 or 2 evenings but it speeds up the process dramatically. For smaller spots it can do it in one night.

    This stuff is truly magic! It dries and makes my zit disappear just like that, i can truly rely on this little bottle to do the work for me when "that time of the month" is on, and i get hormonal acne. Just yesterday i had a real problem zit and this product took care of it, now it's just a red spot that is healing fast and i can cover with concealer for now, and before was impossible. AMAZING!

    I really adore this product. Especially whiteheads really shrink (or even disappear) overnight when using this. It smells 'medicinal' but that doesn't matter as you only put it on before bed. I've finished my first bottle and just started my 2nd one which I purchased via Cosmania - super fast delivery, a kind personal note and two testers which I am loving as well! :)

    This is a good product. It dries spots out. For me, however, the drying cream works better.

    It is an best anti-acne product that I have used. I have been struggling for the acne problem for almost 1 year, I have tried lots of products and finally now I find the right one! I have used it for two nights, and the pimples become smaller and smaller. Now I'm planning to buy the buffering lotion for alternative use.

    definitely effective! it's good to use on an obvious spot, which after one night would be shranked. but, hard to clean.
