    Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

    Literally this is the best skin care line I have used in a long time!
    I was having a lot of issues with adult acne and felt so alone in my skin issues. Nothing was working & I just wanted to hide all my skin problems with layers of makeup.

    My best friend recommended trying Mario Badescu and I was hesitant because I had already been going to my dermatologist and had been using other prescribed products.

    Once I ran out of my acne medications, I bought the Mario drying lotion & glycolic cleanser..... WOW! My skin cleared up in a matter of days. I truly have never experienced such amazing results.

    I then purchased a brightening kit and the steps are so easy and it's such a great skin care regime.

    Highly recommend!!!!!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

      I honestly can't recommend this kit enough! I bough a second kit, although I haven't finished the products from the first. My face is brighter, much, much, brighter. Now, here's the trick: I get a Vi peel done every couple of months, and maintaining the results was always challenging. This kit totally took care of that problem. Also, I have black heads around my nose, always did. Since I start using this kit the became darker ( weird, I know), but are so much easier to get them out.....they are closer to the surface! That was a really pleasant suprise. Get this kit, it's totally worth it!

        I use this product as recommended by the directions on the kit and so for so good! It's been less than a week and I already notice a huge difference already. My skintone and texture is already changed. I was using it for some dark spots from some past breakouts and they are way better already. From someone who started breaking out for the first time at 25 this has helped so much. Give it a try for sure! I never write reviews but I always read them before I purchase products so I figured I had to recommend to you all.

              I used this product just as the instructions say and after a week I already see a big difference. I've always had enlarged pores, redness, and lots of acne scars. So my skin is very textured and after a week i can see my pores are smaller and my skin tone is even with no redness. It's too soon to tell if it's helping with scars, but I'm very impressed with the effects in just a week.

              I am so glad I bought Brightening Regimen Kit. Amazing! Very gentle, did not dry out my skin. The cleanser, toner, every product in this Kit is worth spending money to buy this. After first use my skin felt alive. I highly recommend this, give it a try. Also vitamin C serum and Whitening Mask are both amazing as well, the best mask and C serum I ever bought and used. Love this Kit, will buy again for sure.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

                I love this product and how it made my skin smooth but at 2 weeks my face started to dry. I am Asian, so I'm not sure if it was too strong for me. So I use it less frequently as indicated on the label and my skin is more ok with that. Only thing I don't like about this is my skin would itch and have bumps like rash bumps after using the glycolic skin renewal complex.

                  Hey, I have oily, dull skin with enlarged pores, pigmentation/discoloration, blackheads and hormonal acne and I'd like to use both the acne starter regimen kit and the brightening kit. Since its hormonal acne, would the acne regimen kit be right for me? and if possible, can I use both kits at the same time or should they be used one after the other? If I can use them both together, how do you suppose I should be using each product from each kit? Thanks :)

                    You can certainly follow the Whitening Mask with our Vitamin C Serum, after removing the mask. If your skin is sensitive, however, I would suggest using the Whitening Mask and Vitamin C Serum on different evenings.

                    Products in this kit are suitable for all skin types. They will help reduce discoloration from old acne scars. However, if you are still experiencing breakouts, we recommend getting them under control first before using this kit. Our Acne Starter Regimen Kit is a great option for oily, acne prone skin that is prone to breakouts.

                    The Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion included in the Brightening Kit can be used as your toner. This product can be used twice daily after cleansing to help brighten and gently exfoliate the skin. Our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion is best suited for those with combination, dry or sensitive skin. If sensitive please patch test before use to determine sensitivity. For daily moisturizing our Buttermilk Moisturizer can be used morning and night. This product is great for those with dry to combination acne prone skin. http://www.ulta.com/buttermilk-moisturizer?productId=xlsImpprod6200703&sku=2209846&_requestid=7707107
