    Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

    For the record I have dry, sensitive skin. First the pros; it smells awesome and is a lil bit moisturizing. Cons; I feel like the seed granules could cause micro tears in the skin bc they're kind of rough (at least on my skin type), doesn't slough away enough dead skin for me (dry flaky skin peeps know what I'm talking about). I would say you could definitely use this every day if the seeds don't irritate your skin to much and it would be a nice gentle exfoliant. I prefer microdermabrasion exfoliants/treatments to get rid of the build up of dead skin I get from having such dry skin plus they help with my rosacea more. All in all, it's okay just not my personal favorite.

        Smells great, it actually smells like strawberries. I definitely ditched my honey and oat meal scrub for this. The pricing was not so hot, but the product is a fair size, I honestly expected less product than I got.

        DAILY SCRUB

        By JT

        from LA

        Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

        I received a sample of this and I enjoyed it. I don't like to use a scrub daily and for this to be effective it would need to be used daily. It feels great and it's a good scrub, it's just not for me.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

          Gosh, I wanted to love this scrub. I was trying to decide between this and the Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub, and chose this one because of the price and the great reviews. I was so disappointed. Like other reviewers have said, the strawberry seeds are a really gentle exfoliant - but I found this product to be really ineffective as a scrub. Maybe it's because the rest of the solution is so creamy, or maybe it's because there aren't enough strawberry seeds, but, as I scrubbed my face, the seeds would migrate to the areas between my fingers, and I'd find myself having to keep scraping them out from between my fingers to try to scrub my face. Even when I got the scrub to cooperate, it still didn't seem to be doing much. I think some of the other ingredients disagreed with my skin, too - lots of other reviewers have commented on how it made their skin glow and how moisturizing it was. After using this for a couple of weeks (2-3 times a week), though, my skin was so dry and flakey! I had to moisturize a lot more than usual to try to keep my skin supple. (For reference, I have sensitive combination skin, with an oily t-zone and dry everywhere else.) I finally bit the bullet and got the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub, and that one works much better for me. It did what I was hoping this scrub would do - it didn't irritate my sensitive skin and left is soft and smooth afterward.

          This stuff is the best! But I will tell you it doesn't really exfoliate that much but it does make your skin look so good afterwards. I usually put this on before I start my day and I love the way it feels and look so much I don't even wanna put makeup on! Makes your skin glow! Also, I love the packaging and the smell!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

          Let me start by saying I was very excited and had high hopes for this "scrub" But it was a fail it didn't expoliate my face at all the seed where soo hard and did not dissolve what so ever. Maybe because it did say non-abrasive i just had high hopes for this product. Sorry but i returned wipl not purchase

            I use this product twice a week, sometimes 3 times. It's great before applying makeup as it leaves skin smooth and ready to be moisturized. It's very gentle yet effective without being too harsh.

              This scrub is very natural and feels great on my skin. I've only used it twice so far so I haven't seen dramatic changes but I bought this with a few other products of the same brand because of the great reviews

                    A:

                    Mario Badescu Caviar Night Cream is a nightly cream that should be applied to a clean, dry face at bedtime. The product will easily be removed in the morning when you wash your face. This can either be with your regular cleanser or with an exfoliant such as the Strawberry Face Scrub.

                    A:

                    Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub is recommended for all skin types but if you are generally irritated by mildly-abrasive products, then you should avoid use. This may be a better option: when cleansing with Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, after massaging in circular motions on face, allow the product to sit on skin for a few minutes before rinsing off with warm water. This will allow the natural AHA's in papaya and grapefruit to breakdown dulling skin-buildup.
