          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

          received this in a packet I got from Mario Badescu online as a completely free sample along with a some masks, a cleanser, and lotions. It has little to no scent, it has tiny scrubbies like refined sugar to give a complete distribution to your face, it doesn't disappear so you can scrub as long as needed, and it works perfectly! no complaints! I will be buying the bigger size very soon! ??

                      A:

                      The recommended usage is 2-3 times a week. Since teenage skin may be sensitive skin, we would suggest only using 1-2 times a week or as the skin allows.

                  • Q:

                    I have combo/oily skin. Just recently have I gotten control of my acne, so I only have one or two break outs once in a while that goes away after a few days. However, I still have under the surface bumps on my forehead that I can't get rid of completely..
                    I use a green tea facial wash with my Clarisonic, use the Glycolic Acid Toner to tone, Murad's Rapid Age Spot and Pigmentation Serum to target my old acne scars, and an SPF moisturizer in the morning/regular moisturizer at night.
                    Would incorporating the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub 2-3 times a week be too much for my skin in addition to what I already do(in order to keep those under the surface forehead bumps at bay, or is the Clarisonic enough of an exfoliator?)

                      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.

                      Yes - it will help long term in helping to exfoliate away dead skin cells. For more immediate needs - Mario Badescu Rose Hips Nourishing Oil is a lightweight, quickly absorbed facial oil designed to reduce flakiness and surface dehydration.
