    Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

    I have now used everything in this kit and I can honestly say, I love every product. I have been battling with my skin for months now and this kit is much more effective than anything else I've tried. I didn't see the MB's acne regimen kit before buying this one so I would be interested to see what that has to offer. However - I do not want to give up anything I am using in this brightening kit!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

      After doing some research and seeing Mario Badescu was in a law suit 5 years prior for putting addictive steroids in their products... I was beyond SCARED! Although, I have no knowledge if these products in this kit contain that same harmful incredient. The glycolic cleanser was a god send ! I've been trying to find a face wash that was not so harsh, but still treated my adult acne. I suffer from Rosacea as well. The grapefruit toner is amazing, but doesn't blow me away. The vitamin C serum is okay, but I still love Clarins serums. However if you're strapped for cash this vitamin C serum packs a punch. The Mask is a must have! It's helped with my redness! The skin renewal cream was thrown in the trash. It's so heavy and irritates my skin. This little kit did work wonders , I used the cleanser, toner, serum, and face mask as directed.
      My face has never been this clear, I barely have to put on any makeup! Just a little on my cheeks! I will be buying the cleanser in the big bottle when I run out! Note: I also have been taking probiotics, tumeric, and eating super healthy since in conjunction with the brightening kit.

          I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin and have always been hesitant to trying new products. Not only do I easily break out, but I am left with acne scars that take months, sometimes up to a year to fade. I am so glad to have found this kit! I have been using it for 3 months now, and it has significantly improved and evened my skin tone as well as lighten my scars! My favorites from the kit are the glycolic foaming cleanser and the vitamin c serum (use sparingly) which I use about 3-4 times a week.

                    A:

                    I would stick with your current regimen as your daily skin care routine and begin to incorporate the products in the Brightening Kit into your routine 1-3 times a week. Keeping your skin clear is very important and adding in these products slowly will help address your skin discoloration. Add in one product at a time so you can see which ones work with your skin before trying a new one.

This always happens only in my cheek area without me even touching it, I'm trying my best to find the best kit for me that wont make me break out at all and make these scars fade away once in for all. I really hate them so much and I've never scars on me look this bad. Please help!!!!

                    A:

                    Hello and thank you for your inquiry. I think the first step is to get the acne under control with our Acne Starter Kit. It contains an entire regimen designed for acne prone skin. Sticking to the regimen and using the included Drying Mask 2-3 times a week are key factors in working to reduce and prevent these breakouts. When you do experience these monthly breakouts, you should be spot treating with our Acne Repair Kit. Spot treating the different types of blemishes will reduce their severity and help to prevent future scarring. Once the breakouts are under control and minimal, you can begin to incorporate the products from the Brightening Kit into your regimen.

                    Our Brightening Kit is recommended for all skin tones. The included products work together to evenly brighten and minimize minor skin discolorations with regular use. The Whitening Mask doesn't lighten or bleach skin, rather it works to gradually even out skin discolorations and brighten your overall complexion.

                    A:

                    Frequency of use and usage directions are detailed below for each product:
                    Glycolic Foaming Cleanser: Gently massage on face in circular motions avoiding eye area. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry. Follow with toner or astringent. For oily or problematic skin use 2-3 times weekly. For dry or sensitive skin use 1-2 times weekly. Adjust accordingly for your skin type.
                    Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion: Twice daily after cleansing, pat skin dry and apply lotion-dampened cotton to skin, wiping in an outward direction until cotton comes up clean. Avoid eye area. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.
                    Whitening Mask: Apply a thin layer of mask on clean skin avoiding eye area. Wait 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with tepid water. Follow with serum and moisturizer. Use 2-3 times a week.
                    Vitamin C Serum: Apply 2-3 drops on clean skin avoiding eye area every other night. May be used under a moisturizer or alone.
                    Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex: After cleansing and toning, apply all over face daily or overnight, avoiding eye area. May be used daily.

                    The Vitamin C Serum should be used every other evening and can be used on the nights you use the Whitening Mask. You can apply the Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex on top of the serum after waiting a few minutes to allow the serum to absorb into the skin. The Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex can also be used during the daytime as a protectant cream for someone with very dry skin.

                  My 20 year old daughter has suffered with moderate to severe acne for several years. Some of her acne is cystic. She also has some scarring. Her face is very oily as well. At times she chooses to "hide" instead of facing the world. The acne causes her much distress, and she feels ugly. She is a beautiful young woman, and I hope to find something that will help her feel better about her skin. Please let me know what you recommend.

                    Hello and thank you for your inquiry. Our Acne Starter Kit is a better option over the Brightening Kit. It contains an entire regimen designed for acne prone skin. Sticking to the regimen and using the included Drying Mask 2-3 times a week are key factors in working to reduce and prevent her breakouts. Since she does get cystic acne, our Buffering Lotion would be a spot treatment you would want to incorporate into the regimen. Apply a few drops of Buffering Lotion to affected areas under a thin layer of our Drying Mask. After 15 minutes, rinse off, tone, and follow with another application of the Buffering Lotion.

                    Once her breakouts are under control and minimal, she can begin to incorporate the products from the Brightening Kit into her regimen.

                    The Brightening Kit contains products that work together to help, gently and gradually, reduce discoloration and minimize hyperpigmentation and dark spots. We also recommend using a daytime moisturizer with SPF to protect against further damage and discoloration. Our Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 is a great option. http://www.ulta.com/oil-free-moisturizer-spf-30?productId=xlsImpprod6200803

                • Q:

                  Hi. I'm African American and have a bit of Hyperpigmentation around the mouth area. I am 25 and see a few fine lines in my forehead and by my mouth. I grew up with acne prone skin but since getting on birth control I only have occasional breakouts and blackheads. Is this the correct kit for me? Will this protect against the sun? I am very concerned about having these wrinkles at such a young age. I want to protect my skin and get rid of the ones I have, while also making sure I'm not over moisturizing so the acne doesn't flare up again. Please let me know if this kit is for me. Thank you so much.
