    Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

    More than I would usually pay for an exfoliater, but it's definitely worth it. It has a great smell and isn't too harsh on my skin. I had been having trouble with patches of dry skin on my face, especially my cheeks and forehead. An Ulta employee recommended this product. I was surprised, as I though I'd need a better moisturizer, not an exfoliater. This has gotten rid of my dry skin patches, and doesn't irritate or dry out my skin at all. I use it twice a week.

          BEST SCRUB EVER!!!

          By JT

          from LA

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

          I love this scrub!!! If you found a scrub you love look no further. It reminds me a lot of the microdelivery scrub by philosophy, but the gel like texture of the MB scrub makes it super easy to wash off in the sink.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

            I was hesitant to buy this scrub at first because of the price and because I thought it might be too harsh for my sensitive skin, so I tried a couple of other Mario Badescu scrubs first (the Almond & Honey and the Strawberry face scrubs). Those other scrubs didn't work for me, so I decided to go ahead and try this one, especially after seeing all the positive reviews. I'm so glad I did! It is a very fine scrub in a gel-like solution, and it gently took off all my dry skin without drying out the skin that was underneath. It has a mild, pleasing scent, and I like that it comes in a tube instead of a pot. And, it only takes a tiny amount to scrub my whole face, so I think this product will last a long time (making the price worthwhile). Definitely recommend.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

              This scrub helps balance my skin. The dry patches, oily areas, and acne prone spots have all been improving so much. I got this as a sample with another and had to buy the full size, easily the best scrub I've ever used. I can't describe the smell, but it's gentle and pleasant. I recommend this to everyone!

                    I had a big weekend event, dry, flakey winter dull skin looked bad under foundation. Can't use the harsh apricot hull exfoliators on my face. I was afraid of my face being irritated and flushed red after using. This product made my face smooth, but NO red reaction for me. This is a gentle, quality exfoliating facial scrub at a reasonable price.

                        Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub will exfoliate and polish your skin to improve the overall texture.
                        You may also want to incorporate Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times a week into your skin care routine for an added boost of exfoliation to breakdown pore clogging buildup and help prevent future bumps.
