Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub
- "I love this face scrub, it's great for sensitive skin it helps if you have dry skin. This makes your skin feel hydrated and it helped me with black heads. This is very affordable and works wonders. If you have oily skin this will work for you as well." in 17 reviews
This guy is awesome. I use all Mario Bodescu skincare now, and won't ever look back. Ever since I started using Mario Bodescu skincare for my oily, acne prone skin, I have been nothing but amazed. Every single product I have bought and tried has helped my skin tremendously. I'm very sensitive, and break out when using new skincare, but this particular brand has done nothing but positive results for my face. I've slowly transitioned over to all Mario Bodescu, and my face has never looked better. I have been wanting the new Mario Bodescu Botanical face scrub (26$) but haven't been able to drop 30$ yet. I was looking in his aile, to see if their were any other face scrubs that are by him, and I ran across this product. This is the Almond and honey face scrub. You get 4oz of product (which is a big jar) and it's only 15 bucks!! Nothing I have purchased and tried so far from this brand has disappointed me, so I was excited to get this home and try. This face scrub is lovely. It's not a very "abrasive" scrub, but rather a more "softer" scrub, which is great for my oily skin. It has real almonds crushed up within the jar and real honey. True, when you use this, their isn't a whole lot of "scrubbing " going on, but more of a soft cream scrub with little bits every now and then to scrub dead skin off. I read reviews where people said "This isn't abrasive enough. Waste of money" and that's when I was like "Really?" 4 OZ of product, all for 15 bucks! And smells amazing?!! It's even great for sensitive skin too? I couldn't believe the negative comments about this product. I use this in the shower for the first time after cleansing with my other Mario Bodescu products, and I fell in love. The almond bits are little, but still feel good scrubbing on my oily skin. If you like very abrasive scrubs, then this is not for you. If you have sensitive skin, oily skin, acne prone skin, then you might just love this like I do. Overexfoliating is one of the most number one bad things for acne prone skin. Over exfoliating causes more problems and more break outs. This scrub is gentle enough, to where you could use it every day, and still feel like your benefiting from it. I absolutely loved it, and fell in love. The smell is incredible. The price and amount you get for the price is amazing too! A little bit goes a long way too! I will continue to use and repurchase when I run out! A gentle scrub for my oily, acne prone skin that smells like heaven, and doesn't cause more breakouts ? Yes please. Don't let the negative reviews fool you. This scrub is bomb! It's gentle and not very abrasive, but you will still get a little bit, also on top of a good cleanse and smell amazing! Lasts for a longgg time too.!
I love Mario Badescu and have an expansive collection of his skincare products that I swear by. I wasn't too impressed with this "scrub" however. I was expecting a scrub-but this had no scrub to it. It was basically just a creamy mask with no exfoliation what so ever, which was the only reason I bought it. I handed it off to my best friend (which I do a lot when a product doesn't suit me) and went and bought Mario's Botanical Face Scrub and it works SO well. So if you're looking for an actual scrub and not just a mask I'd steer clear of this product and opt for a different one.
I had never heard of this brand until I ran across it online. After filling out a facial profile, I received several different samples and a guide on how to use each one and in which order to use. Packaging was great and I still have some left now. It was a very effective facial cleansing regimen, and I recommend it to everybody. Make sure to fill out your facial profile and include your skin concerns to get the correct products for YOUR face.
I use this face scrub twice a week. I actually really like it! I scrub my face with it and leave it on like a mask until it dries, so maybe 2 1/2 min max and then wash it off with warm,water and my face feels so smooth and refreshed.
My SIL intro’d me to Mario Badescu - she had her first facial decades ago by his staff in NYC. It’s a great line. Good price point, calming ingredients - not harsh at all. The Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub is a good scrub with ground almond and oatmeal suspended in a yummy honey, oil and oatmeal cream.
I use this more like a mask than a scrub, the particles are too big and just get pushed around on my face rather than providing any exfoliation. Smells good though and makes my skin feel really soft after using it like a mask!
I bought this about a week ago and absolutely love it! First time user and will definitely continue purchasing it. It’s a great value! For $15 it’s 4oz and a little bit goes a long way! I was looking for a new scrub to help get rid of the dead skin on my face and it works amazingly!! It also smells great! I highly highly recommend it!
I love this product it gave my face a glo that I hadn’t seen in a while. I have sensitive skin and it didn’t bother it. My face was smooth and soft afterwards. The product is a little pricey but over all compared to competitors not to bad. I would definitely recommend this product.
Received this as a free sample when purchasing the rose water spray. Is very gentle on the skin leaving the skin silky smooth. Also includes beads to exfoliate. I did buy the full product once I seen the results. Only needs to be used 2-3 a week for noticeably softer skin.
I absolutely love this scrub! I was using the Lush Herbalism face scrub for a long time, but switched to this when I got it for Christmas last year. I’ve tried other scrubs from the drugstore, since I’m a broke college girl, but nothing really compares!! 10/10!!
Q & A
The description of this reminds me of a Lush product. I have super sensitive and acne prone skin, so I'm scared to use anything that is abrasive. If you have sensitive skin, please tell me how this product worked out for you!
Does this work well on sensitive skin?
Does this harm your face ? Is it good for sensitive oily skin ?
Is this a good scrub? Any benefits to the skin? It sounds like it would be good.
Can i use this as a exfoliater
