Mario Badescu - Reviewing Facial Sprays, Aloe Vera Toner and Olive Eye Cream

by - Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Hi, dolls!
In today's blog post, I wanted to do a brand review focusing on Mario Badescu and their skincare products. I was surprised to find out that many people tend to not have the best experience with this brand because most of the time I have had a good experience using Mario's skincare products. If you're interested to learn more about the products I have tested, let's get right into the review!

Mario Badescu Facial Sprays
Available in 236ml (£11/$14), 118ml (£7/$9) & 59ml (£5/$7)

Let's begin with the well-know facials sprays. Mario Badescu's facial sprays are classic amongst MUAs and influencers alike and have over 1K customer reviews between them. Hydrating face mists are packed with vitamins and antioxidants work their magic by delivering ingredients to your skin quickly and easily, which helps you to treat your major skin concerns. There are currently 4 different types/scents of these facial sprays:

 Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
Best for: Dry/dehydrated skin
This facial spray lightly refreshes skin whilst boosting hydration and relieving dehydrated, tight complexions. Mist it over your moisturiser for a hydration boost or use it to set your makeup.

Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender
Best for: Dull skin
This facial spray is Vitamin C infused suitable for all skin types. Light and delicately fragranced, spritz over moisturiser, makeup or bare skin throughout the day for an instant hydration boost.

Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea
Best for: Breakout-prone skin
This facial spray is perfect for waking up dull, tired skin. You can mist over your face before moisturising or throughout the day after makeup, for a quick antioxidant boost.

Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom
This 4th facial spray is the newest addition to the Mario collection. It instantly boosts and relieves dull, lacklustre complexions. This floral-scented spray can be used alone or over makeup as it helps to improve skin's clarity, restore balance and reveal a dewy finish. 

I personally really love Mario's facial sprays and the two I truly am obsessed with are the Aloe, Cucumber & Green Tea and Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom. They add so much hydration to my skin and I love to spray it onto my skin before I apply makeup. There are 4 different scents which target 4 different skin concerns which is also great because everyone can find something that will work for them. 



Available in 472ml (£14/$18)
Available in 236ml (£23/$30)

Aloe Vera toner has a fragrance and alcohol-free formula that helps sweep away impurities. It's to be used twice daily, sweep over cleansed skin to boost and re-balance the complexion. It's suitable for sensitive skin. I decided to give this toner a go because I have a sensitive skin that needed an alcohol-free toner. However, I found this toner to feel heavy for my skin and it caused irritation, so I decided to stop using it. I think that for its price point, there are definitely better toners out there for you guys to try out. However, just because a product didn't work for me, doesn't necessarily mean it won't work for you!

Mario Badescu Olive Eye Cream 14g
£16/$21

Mario's Olive Eye cream is a highly concentrated eye cream to leave your eye area hydrated, smooth and soft. It's formulated with a nourishing blend of olive oil and cocoa butter, the cream is intensely moisturising and hydrating. It is suitable for all skin types, and this rich cream is ideal for nightly use. It smooths fine lines whilst leaving the delicate eye area feeling super soft.
When I first applied this eye cream, it felt to me like vaseline, which made my under eyes  feel super hydrated and soft. You don't need much of this eye cream to hydrate your whole eye area meaning it will last you for a long time. I really enjoyed using this eye cream and I had no bad skin reaction to it. 

Final Thoughts
I was shocked to hear that many people have or had a bad experience with Mario because I truly always enjoyed their products. The Aloe Vera toner was a miss for me but Mario's other products did a great job for my skin. My favourites from Mario have to be their facial sprays because I've been using them for years and they always leave my face to feel super hydrated and soft. If you haven't tried anything from Mario, I would definitely recommend trying out their facial sprays because they are honestly amazing! 

Let me know if you have tried Mario's products before and what is your favourite?

  3. Oooh I haven't tried products from Mario Badescu before. Love that their products are super affordable. Everyone's skin works differently, so compatibility can be an issue. Glad you enjoyed it!
