Find in Store-

Mario Badescu's most decadent face scrub, specially formulated to be gentle on even the most delicate of skin. Finely ground almonds and cornmeal buff away dull, flaky skin as a rich blend of sweet almond oil, honey, and oatmeal leaves your complexion feeling soft, smooth, and nourished.
Use light pressure to apply scrub on the skin (avoiding the eye area). Massage all areas of the face using upward, circular motions for 30 seconds, then rinse with warm water. For best results, exfoliate 1-3 times a week. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

Nice cleanser/mask NOT a scrub

By ToniK

from Tulsa

Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

I am always on the hunt for new face scrubs. I love MB and this smells amazing so I decided to give it a try. It's got the consistency of a lotion which I don't mind as I have dry skin. It's thick but I didn't have any trouble getting it off with just a wet wash rag. This made my skin look and feel great but it is in no way a scrub. There are just big, scattered pieces of almond shell mixed into it but they are far too large and sparse to do any exfoliating. So as a scrub, it would be a no go. But just as a gentle, hydrating cleanser I really like it.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

      I really like this exfoliater/scrub. It is a gentle scrub that won't tear up your skin, but is also effective for a mild exfoliating treatment. It's definitely one that I see myself buying again.

          Chunky

          By Corrine

          from New York

          Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

          I agree with some other reviewers, I wouldn't qualify this as a scrub. It feels like a gloopy lotion with huge chunks of almond that don't do any exfoliating at all. Also not a huge fan of the smell.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub:

            I am usually a fan of the Mario products but this scrub is awful. It's like a thick paste that feels more like a mask and hardly any exfoliating beads. It feels like you are just rubbing a clay mask into your face and it's impossible to remove. Don't waste your money. I'm so upset I threw away the receipt or I would have returned.

            I have combination skin and this product works great! I only use it once or twice a week for a pick me up. It doesn't necessarily have a bad smell, it just doesn't smell as good as I expected it to.

            Although i use Mario Badescu line, this is one of the products that is not for me. It gave me a rash, but i didnt read the ingredients so i might me allergic to something. I wish i didnt get a reaction because it feels nice to the skin and smells so amazing.

                A:

                Our Almond & Honey Scrub is a gentle exfoliant best for sensitive, dry or mature skin. This will help reduce dulling build up while hydrating the skin. We do not suggest this product if you have acne or dark marks. Instead our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used 1-3 times per week to exfoliate the skin, help reduce congestion and breakout while minimizing discoloration from acne scars or sun spots.
