    Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

    So I have been a mario badescu fan ever since it was introduced to me 2 years ago. I may or may not be biased because of this, but all I know is that my skin is looking so healthy with this daily routine! I use my regular face wash and swap it with the foaming wash on this kit 2-3 times a week as instructed. I alway use the toner right after, and then the serum. However, once a week I will use the mask before any of the products. I've noticed that my skin has gotten brighter and overall healthier.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

      Really enjoy all of the products in this kit but the sizing doesn't make sense, I will run out of the skin renewal cream in a week if I used it daily. The face wash was appropriately sized for being a "tester kit", the toner/lotion will run out way quicker than than the wash. The vitamin c is going to last forever because a few drops go a long way. The itty bitty skin renewal cream is what upset me the most, I felt a bit ripped off on that product. Mario Badescu should either lower the price or give us a full month's worth of all the products.

        Love the glycolic face wash and grapefruit toner. The vitamin c serum drops are great and I have only used the whitening mask a few times but expect the best. I also purchased the rosehip mask and love. Such a great line, great ingredients and great results.

          In an effort to fix uneven pigmentation and spots on my forehead I have used countless topical lotions (prescription and over the counter) and none have been as effective as the products within this kit. All of the products are easy to use, very gentle and effective thus far. After using these products for just about two weeks the discoloration on my forehead is fading and the spots seem to be diminishing as a result. Looking forward to finishing the kit and exploring more of the products in the line. Highly recommend!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

              I have passed by this skincare brand for so long without giving it a second glance- maybe because the affordable prices made me think it wasn't as worth my while? I was very wrong! I have tried many expensive skin care brands and this stands up with the best of them! I have deep acne scarring from my teenage years, and while the scarring has not gone away, I have been receiving compliments on my skin from friends and family saying it looks so clear and bright. I am now interested in trying all the Mario Badescu products! Give this kit a shot- it's definitely worth a try! One downside though is I am kind of bummed that the facewash is not recommended for every day use because I like to keep my skincare routine simple and this facewash is too harsh for everyday use but not exfoliating enough to feel really exfoliated.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

                I suffer from hormonal acne and no matter what I do, I always end up with deep red marks that scar like there's no tomorrow. I've had my eye on this kit for a while and finally took a leap of faith. I've spent SO much money hoping to target skin concerns and *hands down* this has been the most noticeable change. (expensive facials, dermabrasion, clarisonics, crazy retinol treatments, diet changes, chemical peels).

                In 2 days, all of my acne on my forehead and chin that had come to a head was dried up and healed. Within a week, any little marks from said acne was GONE. There is a nasty scar on my cheek from a chemical peel gone wrong that I've struggled to cover with makeup for a year. It's almost gone. Deep red scars from cystic acne are faded to a light brown. My complexion is glowing. That's after a week, folks.

                Even if I don't see any more improvement, this regimen has been miraculous for me. I didn't expect it to make my acne vanish. I didn't expect it to make my makeup go on smoother. And I certainly didn't expect it to fade a year old scar in such a short amount of time. If you're on the fence, I would go for it.

                            The only product in our Brightening Regimen Kit that is suitable for daily use is our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion.
                            The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used 1-3 times per week in place of your daily cleanser. The Vitamin C Serum is recommended for use every other evening. The Whitening Mask can be used 2-3 times per week after cleansing. Once removed after 10-15 minutes follow with toner, serum and moisturizer.

                        • Q:

                          How long do you have to use the kit to see some results? I have a lot of acne scarring, and used the skin brightening kit until my grapefruit lotion, and vitamin C serum was gone. In that time (maybe 30 days), I did not see one of acne scars get lighter; not even close to fading away. Is there another product I should add to the regimen? Also, what kind of moisturizer do you suggest for the am and pm?

                            Products in our Brightening Regimen Kit will work to help diminish the appearance of hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage or acne scars. It will also brighten your overall complexion but it will not eliminate freckles.

                            We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.

                            For your age, the Brightening Regimen Kit is not recommended. Instead our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used twice per week to exfoliate the skin, help reduce breakouts and congestion and also reduce discoloration from acne scars.

                        • Q:

                          I never had acne until I was an adult and had no luck until I found Mario Badescu. These products are magic. My mom, who is in her 60s, has nice skin but she has some discoloration, mainly sun spots, and some wrinkles. Since, I had so much luck with Mario Badescu I got her the Anti-Aging Kit, recommended by specialist based on her needs, and Brightening Kit. I was wondering if she could start with the AA kit and then start to combine some products from the Brightening kit, like the vitamin C drops and whitening mask. My mom is beautiful and I want her to have success with these products as well and love her skin. Any suggestions or a regimen or how to combine the 2 kits or products from the Brightening kit with the Anti- Age kit would be awesome. Or if there is any reason this shouldn't be done. Any help is sincerely appreciated.

                            She can certainly use the Anti-Aging Regimen Kit and incorporate the Vitamin C Serum every other evening after cleansing and toning, before her night cream. We suggest the Whitening Mask 2-3 times per week after cleansing. Once removed she can follow with toner, serum and night cream. Since neither of these kits contain a daily cleanser, I would suggest our Orange Cleansing Soap as her daily cleanser to help brighten the skin and banish dullness.
