      Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

      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!

      By Alexismarie9819

      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.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub:

        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.

                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.

                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.

                      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.
