      Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub:

      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.

                    I use this scrub 3x a week and I love how well this works for my skin. My skin is smooth and glowing and feels very clean. I've seen a dramatic difference in just two weeks! You don't need to use a lot like with other scrubs, as other scrubs seems to dissolve and don't actually scrub. I can see this lasting a good bit. Smells nice too.

                          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.

                          Yes - it will help long term in helping to exfoliate away dead skin cells. For more immediate needs - Mario Badescu Rose Hips Nourishing Oil is a lightweight, quickly absorbed facial oil designed to reduce flakiness and surface dehydration.
