      I've only been using it for a week but it feels good and doesn't harm my semi sensitive skin. My face is SOO soft. It's a good kit for the affordable price and I'm going to continue to use!

      By Sara C.

      from NC

      Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

      Well, this kit does work as intended. It did help fade some of the acne/sun spot marks in my face. But it came at the cost of severely dehydrating my combo/oily skin. Which is a conundrum in itself. If you've ever experienced it, you understand! I had to discontinue using due to the state my skin was going (very tight and was producing more oil), but if your skin isn't as sensitive to product usage definitely give this kit a try. It does work!

          I love everything in this kit, but my favorites are definitely the Vitamin C Serum and the Whitening Mask! The Vitamin C Serum gives visibly brighter skin overnight and the Whitening Mask is the best product for evening skin tone that I've come across on my quest for perfect skin.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

            I am SUPER lazy with any regimen. But after using this for a month I saw noticeable differences in my hyper pigmentation. After about that month I stopped using the mask, I just kept forgetting and it's still doing wonders. The dark spots are getting smaller each week. I bought the hydro moisturizer and the daily gel to boost this kit as well.

              YES! Acne scars that i've had for years are fading!!

              By Caitlin

              from Detroit

              Comments about Mario Badescu Brightening Regimen Kit:

              I'm a sucker for trying anything and everything when it comes to dealing with my hormonal cystic acne. It has been a constant in my life since I was a teenager. Funny thing is, my skin as a whole is quite good. However, when it comes to my chin, and around my mouth, I get painful cystic pimples, and they always scar. My complexion everywhere else is pretty much clear. I heard about this brightening kit, and had to try it. It's been two weeks, and not only are my scars (which have been around for years) fading, my hormonal acne breakouts around my mouth/chin have been kept at bay. I now feel 100% comfortable being makeup free in public for the first time in quite a while! If anyone else out there suffers from acne scarring, give this product a chance! You won't be disappointed! Thanks Mario Badescu!

              • Q:

                I have mildly sensitive, drier skin, with hormonal acne that is mostly constant on my cheeks. I bought this and it was wonderful in that it didn't dry me out, and it brightened my complexion and helped with my dark spots, scars, and uneven skin tone. But after a few weeks my acne got worse and worse mostly on my cheeks and jawline, and I'm now realizing this toner especially probably isn't helping my pores. I've had the same pores re-clog week after week, pimples in the same spots, even with using the Drying Lotion (and now the Anti Acne Serum). I don't know if the Acne line will be too harsh for me, but what do you recommend for wash, toner, and moisturizer?

                  We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.

                  Yes, the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is an exfoliant that is not suitable for daily use. We suggest this product 1-2 times per week if dry or 2-3 times per week if oily. For daily cleansing our Enzyme Cleansing Gel pairs wonderfully with this kit.
