    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.

Left my skin with marks. I have been using this for the past 2 months and it brightened it completely. Barely any marks visible. Also bought the mario badesceu rose water spray that I also use.

                        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.

                        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

                        The Brightening Regimen Kit contains a collection of products that are individually designed to address your concerns. Incorporating all the products into your current skin care routine will provide better results than using one individual product. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser and Vitamin C Serum (both in the Brightening Regimen Kit) are also 2 of our best selling products that address aging concerns.

                        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.

                      I'm 19 and I have combo/ oily t- zone, I get acne once in awhile (usually on my monthly cycle).. I usually get a few (2-3) bumps around my cheeks and forehead.. After a week my forehead acne does disappear. But as for my cheeks they become smaller bumps and take about two weeks to fully disappear and leave horrible dark scars without me even picking at my cheeks.. 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!!!!

                        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.

                      I'm a 50+ AA woman who suffers from hyperpigmentation on my chin. I also still have mild breakouts from time to time. Is this whitening product something that could possibly lighten my problem area?

                        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.

                        You can apply a thin layer of mask onto freshly washed skin, avoiding the eye area. Wait 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with water. You can follow with a toner and moisturizer if you wish.
