Product Review // Mario Badescu Haul

 I got a small package from Mario Badescu, a company I've used before.  This isn't a full fledged review but just some initial thoughts after having them a few weeks.  Actually, the drying lotion is one my favorites (here's a review) so I can attest to the effectiveness of that one, but the other two are new to me.  Be sure to sign up for e-mails on their site--they are always running promo codes for discounts.

One word to describe the facial spray: lovely. It's currently in my purse because after I powder or blot during the day, I like to give my face a quick spritz to refresh my makeup and give me a burst of freshness.  It doesn't disturb my makeup and I can use it as a light setting spray (nothing heavy duty, mind you).  It smells like rosewater and herbs, which I am a huge fan of.  You can also mist this on your hair if it's feeling a bit dry.  I wouldn't use this as my toner and it's not mandatory, but it's just so relaxing I feel like I'm treating myself when I use it.  It's a good price point, too.

Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater, $7

I won't go on too long about the drying lotion since I've already reviewed it here but I still love it as the best spot treatment I've tried.  It shrinks pimples overnight and you will definitely see a difference.  I've gotten my little brother hooked on it--and if he's willing to dot his face in pink stuff, you can be sure it's worth it.

Drying Lotion, $17

The texture of this eye cream is really unique.  It's the most lightweight gel I've tried.  It's also a bright green but don't let that scare you!  It provided a surprising amount of moisture for such a light gel and you will only need a small amount.  I haven't used it long enough to know if it's diminished my fine lines but it does help with puffiness in the mornings.  This would be a great one to keep in the fridge for extra tired eyes or allergy season sufferers.

Ceramide Eye Cream, $18
