Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

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.

Pros

  • Made my skin smooth
  • The first few days I notice my skin smooth

Cons

  • I itch and got bumps on the Glycolic Skin cream

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.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

      Okay listen - I am a review junkie. I do not buy a procuct unless I read 100+ positive reviews, research it for months, and watch video tutorials on it. I'm that crazy human. And I don't write reviews myself... but this time I need to. If anyone is a crazy review lady like me - I hope this helps you.
      I have really prominent acne scars and have tried other products throughout my 23 years on this earth - this one WORKS. Seriously, I bought this 4 days ago and I see major improvement. And on top of everything my skin feels amazing and my makeup goes on better. This literally gives you the confidence of a queen and makes you feel/look like one also. I'm not kidding or trying to waste your time - I promise I'm being 100% in saying you should buy this. And it's extremely reasonably priced. Get. It. Now.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

        I love this kit! I have been trying to get rid of my mild acne and dark spots for almost a year and this is actually working. Long story short after I stopped nursing my daughter my hormones went crazy and I went from having almost perfect skin my entire life to constant break outs on my cheeks. And it seemed like every bump left a dark mark on my face. I've only been using this kit for 3 weeks and I see an improvement in my skin already. I use the cleanser almost everyday and I use the mask as an over night spot treatment. I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone with mild acne and dark spots.

                  The Brightening Regimen Kit does not contain any products that whiten or bleach your skin. It contains a collection of products that gently reduce discoloration over time to help ensure a more uniform complexion.

                  A:

                  The products in the Brightening Kit will help target discoloration and can be incorporated into your current regimen. While there are some products that are suitable for dry skin, this may not provide enough hydration for your very dry skin and you should use the products in the kit in combination with your current moisturizer and night cream.

                  A:

                  Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is a great option that all skin types can incorporate into their current skin care routine. I would start here, while sticking to the acne kit to ensure that your skin remains clear. If you do not have sensitive skin, you can eventually try the products in the Brightening Kit by incorporating one product at a time. I would avoid the Glycolic Gel since your skin is currently clear.

                  The Brightening Kit would be a great option to incorporate into your current routine to reduce discoloration and brighten the skin. For under eye darkness our Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream is a great option, this contains rose hips oil to help brighten the under eye. Please note - Products in the Brightening Kit should not be used around the eye area.

                  A:

                  The products in the Brightening Regimen Kit work to minimize the look of minor skin discolorations and to improve skin texture. Specifically in the kit, the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser harnesses the power of glycolic acid to retexturize and rejuvenate uneven skin. Unfortunately, they will not fill in the indents. Some advanced cases of acne scarring do require a trip to the dermatologist.

                  A:

                  This kit is intended to supplement your current daily regimen and not all products are intended to be used everyday.
                  Glycolic Foaming Cleanser - Replace your regular cleanser 1-3 times a week (1-2 times for Dry to Combination skin, and 2-3 times for Combination and Oily).
                  Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion - this can be used daily
                  Vitamin C Serum - Apply 3-4 drops on clean skin (avoiding the eye area) every other night.
                  Whitening Mask - Use 2-3 times a week for best results.
                  Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex Sample - Apply to the face, neck, and décolletage after cleansing and toning on nights you don't use the Whitening Mask
