    Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

    I was hesitant to buy this scrub at first because of the price and because I thought it might be too harsh for my sensitive skin, so I tried a couple of other Mario Badescu scrubs first (the Almond & Honey and the Strawberry face scrubs). Those other scrubs didn't work for me, so I decided to go ahead and try this one, especially after seeing all the positive reviews. I'm so glad I did! It is a very fine scrub in a gel-like solution, and it gently took off all my dry skin without drying out the skin that was underneath. It has a mild, pleasing scent, and I like that it comes in a tube instead of a pot. And, it only takes a tiny amount to scrub my whole face, so I think this product will last a long time (making the price worthwhile). Definitely recommend.

      Perfect for my combination skin!

      By Syd

      Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

      This scrub helps balance my skin. The dry patches, oily areas, and acne prone spots have all been improving so much. I got this as a sample with another and had to buy the full size, easily the best scrub I've ever used. I can't describe the smell, but it's gentle and pleasant. I recommend this to everyone!

            I had a big weekend event, dry, flakey winter dull skin looked bad under foundation. Can't use the harsh apricot hull exfoliators on my face. I was afraid of my face being irritated and flushed red after using. This product made my face smooth, but NO red reaction for me. This is a gentle, quality exfoliating facial scrub at a reasonable price.

                Exfoliating was just what I was missing in my skincare routine. You only use a small bit once- twice a week so the bottle lasts a long time. After using it the first time I got a couple pimples but its just from it getting all the stuff trapped in my pores out that face wash didnt get. Leaves my skin super smooth! Just want to rub my cheeks after they are so soft!

                    My daughter bought the drying lotion and received a sample packet of the botanical exfoliating scrub and gave it to me there was enough for 2-3 uses and when it was gone I had to order a full size of the product. I work in very dusty conditions and noticed my skin drying up and dirt from the dust settling deep in my pores with one use of this product my pores were clean and less noticeable and my face felt amazing and smooth! After using this product my face is perfectly prepped and smooth and ready to apply my makeup!

                        I've tried many scrubs over the years, and this is easily one of my favorites. It's the perfect texture, not too abrasive but still effective. I use it every other day without irritation and my skin texture is seriously improved in only a couple weeks.

                            Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub will exfoliate and polish your skin to improve the overall texture.
                            You may also want to incorporate Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times a week into your skin care routine for an added boost of exfoliation to breakdown pore clogging buildup and help prevent future bumps.
