      Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

      I liked this product at first for a gentle exfoliation. After just two months that product began to change to a brown color and develop a bad smell, making it not usable. Overall, I do not recommend.

          I use this in the morning a 2-3 times a week, in lieu of my Mario Orange face wash. It cleans my face gently and the smell is amazing. A small amount goes a long way. The strawberry seeds are not too abundant, so it is not an extreme face scrub. It is not intended to remove makeup - but you could use at night also after your normal routine. I like the whipped texture and it feels like a special treat without spending a lot of money. You receive a generous amount.

          The best exfoliating scrub!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

          I have oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. It's hard to find an exfoliant that won't bother my acne more than it already is. This exfoliant was absolutely PERFECT. Perfect amount of moisture, did a great job at exfoliating my skin, and didn't bother it at all.

            Im used to grainy face scrubs so i was skeptical about using a more creamier scrub. I was pleasantly surprised. It not only exfoliated my face but didnt overdry it or leave it feeling stripped. No greasy residue either. It works great!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

              Absolutely adore this! It was a spontaneous last minute throw in my cart product one midnight online shopping haul and I completely forgot I ordered it! I was so pleased and happy for past me to treat present me to such a delightful face scrub! I saw a lot of comments on reviews about how they didn't get enough seeds or they found them ineffective but I disagree... Is it a tough scrub down to your pores kind of thing? No, but I definitely felt the seeds gently getting at the skin and leaving it softer and more moisturized than ever before! I will definitely be repurchasing as well as gifting this to friends at Christmas time! Try it out, it's definitely a personable product I feel a lot of people will enjoy and find refreshing.

                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.

                      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.
