Almond & Honey Face Scrub

4.0 oz Item 2209826

Mario Badescu's most decadent face scrub, specially formulated to be gentle on even the most delicate of skin. Finely ground almonds and cornmeal buff away dull, flaky skin as a rich blend of sweet almond oil, honey, and oatmeal leaves your complexion feeling soft, smooth, and nourished.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

    For a scrub it has big seeds that don't exactly scrub your face enough to remove any dead skin or anything. I don't think it's best used as a scrub but I use it in the shower to wash my face because I love the smell

          Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

          I love almond scented anything, the tester in the store smelled wonderful & I needed a new scrub so I grabbed this one. I got it home & went to use it, the smell was almond and fish apparently. This had an undertone of an old can of tuna. Unfortunately it was already in my hand, so I applied it to my face. It contains talc(which I didn't know, I read the ingredients too late) which made it almost impossible to move around your face. The bits of almond in it are completely useless, as they're too big to actually "scrub" anything. Just big chunks of almond for show. I immediately returned this. I don't know why I thought I'd like this, anything by Mario I've hated.

          This product line is great, but this particular product is especially satisfying! It smells AMAZING! I get excited to wash my face before bed now just so that I can use my face scrub. It's smooth, refreshing, gentle, and smells wonderful! It's worth the price of the little tub, and a little goes quite a long way!

          Great scrub that doesn't feel greasy and like you are putting chemicals on your face. The more you let it dry on your face the better results you will get. I use this twice a week and it does wonders for my dry skin.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

          I really don't know what this is but I love it. It will not clean your face so you must wash it before. It is so creamy and smells divine. The pieces of shell don't bother me at all, I rather like it. All i know is that afterwards my face is so dewy velvety creamy feeling and I have very dry skin. I am addicted to it. I use it every night. I wash my face with Kiehls cucumber wash, then i use this wonderful Mario creamy scrub, Kiehls cucumber toner, Kiehls midnight recovery serum, Kiehls Rosa Arctica moisterizing cream, Marios dermonectin eye cream(oh my gosh, love this also) and Mario's rose spray: in that order. I wake up all night touching my face. It is just glorious. When I wake in the morning my face is still so soft. I know I use a lot of products but this cream just feels good on my face after i wash. Relieves all dryness. You need to look at this as a creamy mild exfoliate and you will love it.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

            I have used this for years and have combination skin. It's effective in its exfoliating purpose and gentler to my skin than a chemical type. Once or twice a week I give myself a facial by cleansing and then gently massaging this delicious smelling scrub all over my face and neck. Then I use a hyalauronic sheet mask and lay down with it for 20 minutes. Baby Skin is the result and no more flakiness.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

              I purchased this along with a travel kit of Mario Badescu products. (All of which were good!) It promised fine texture and gentle - it was neither. My skin isn't particularly sensitive, but the grains in this were huge! The size of olive pits in some! After taking it off, my skin was so dry! I had to use a deep hydration mask just to get it back to normal. My skin also flaked the following day. I'd recommend the Mario Badescu glycolic toner for sure for exfoliation over this. With the toner I have NO MORE FLAKES! :D

              I love the smell of this and all of Mario Badescu's products! This one is one of my favorite exfoliants to use but it is very gentle. It doesn't scrub as much as other exfoliants and needs more of the oatmeal in it for that.
