I received this product before in a sample size and I really enjoyed how it glides around my skin and saw immediate glow so I picked up a full size bottle even how pricey it was. I just know I would enjoyed it

            I have used many scrubs but feel this is one of the best! Deep cleans pores and is not too harsh. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone. This help keeps the oil in check! Less blackheads!

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

                  I love that this face scrub actually have some grain to it. Enough to feel like it's working but not damaging. Really like using every couple of weeks toward the end of my regular regimen. No oily residue, I haven't found it to be drying. Only facial scrub I've actually liked

                    I am using the Cucumber Tonic Mask every 2-3 days. Can you use the scrub and apply mask after? Trying to keep my regime simple.

                      The Botanical Exfoliating Scrub is best used 2-3 times a week and can be used in conjunction with the Cucumber Tonic Mask – followed by a moisturizer or night cream.

                  • Q:

                    Would this product be used in place of the glycolic foaming cleanser as an exfoliant or could this be used with it?

                      A:

                      Our Botanical Exfoliating Scrub provides a gentle mechanical exfoliation, while our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser utilizes glycolic acid to provide a mild chemical exfoliation. Although you can alternate between using both products, we would not recommend using them at the same time.

                      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.
