Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing products for a great value.
As a college student under constant stress and always on the go, Mario Badescu's The Regimen Kit for oily/combination skin types is a perfect fit for my skincare needs. I have fairly normal skin, dry around the perimeter, oily t-zone, and receive occasional breakouts. After using the regimen as directed I noticed immediate results. After just one use (seriously) my skin was noticeably more radiant and hydrated. As I continued to use the products within the kit (about two weeks) my skin gradually became free of blemishes. The blackheads and minor pimples that consistently appeared around my nose and chin were gone.
I would also like to mention that I typically wear a full face of makeup and that I do not rely on the Enzyme Cleansing Gel to remove it. Prior to cleansing my face and neck I use a separate product to remove the bulk of my makeup. I find that this process works me. Also, about once a weak or depending on my skincare needs I use the Flower & Tonic Mask. I typically use this product to decongest and throughly clear build up within my pores.
With use of the products in this regimen kit I am able to keep my skin healthy, hydrated, and blemish free. I still receive occasional breakouts, most likely related to stress or clogged pores, I find that I am able to easily treat them with other products by Mario Badescu for this specific use.
Most Helpful Critical Review Still shiny.
I was excited to try this product because I've tried Mario Badescu somewhat successfully in the past, so I figured this would really help with my excessively oily skin. I was very wrong. I guess I had higher hopes than what was promised, because I desperately wanted the products to take away the mid-day shine and oily feeling I experience. This didn't do that. In fact, the moisturizers included did nothing but enhance the oily look and feel. They're way too heavy, for my skin at least. Unfortunately I'm incredibly let down by this kit.

I bought 3 of these Mario kits recently. This one I bought for my boyfriend whose skin concern is acne. He has used this kit for a few weeks, really giving it a try and I have never seen him breakout so bad. He even said when he started breaking out shortly after starting that his skin might just need to get used to starting a new product, but now after a few weeks, he can't take it anymore. I also personally hate the smell of the 2 kits that have been opened. They are very fragrant. With all the great reviews, I am super disappointed in the products.
Where has this been all my life
Keeezie from Cda
Okay seriously! If you have dry oily skin, I can't even say enough how this will be your holy grail. I have a very oily T zone, and dry cheeks and nose, these products literally made my skin glow the next day (I used all the products included on the first day in the recommended order) I'm going to be ordering full size of everything when I run out! (I already am addicted to the refreshing spray by these guys)
If I could give this product less stars I would
Halle from Naples Florida
I used this product for a week. I have combination skin that tends to be more along the oily side. My face and neck broke out in deep zits, the kind that you cannot pop. I should have looked at the actual ingredient list rather then the "key ingredients" that's is on the back. It has everything in it, that you would NOT want to put on your face. Save your skin, time, and money.
Did wonders for my skin
Denise from Orlando, FL
I purchased the travel size to try it out and see if my skin liked it. It has done wonders for my skin, I haven't seen my skin glow like this in a long time and I have purchased high end products to drug store products, but these have been the best for my skin!I use it in conjunction with they glycolic domain cleanser. I haven't had any major break outs since I started using these products. I recently went back and purchased the larger sizes. So happy I tried this kit out!
I love this product!
Amelia V from San Antonio, Tx
It was very hard for me to find the right face wash n moisturizer for my type of skin and finally I tried this one and it works AMAZING! And it comes in a whole kit! I have very oily skin!
Check Your Packaging!!!
Nia from Southfield, MI
I've heard Ulta will resell a previously opened item without hesitation but I didn't think twice about them doing it during a global pandemic!! This item came sliced open across the front and they still decided to ship it! They should have replaced it for free since they tried something so unsanitary and disgust but they did not offer to do that. Just refund or exchange. It's probably best just to order directly from the manufacturer plus I saved 20%! I would never buy anything from them again that has to be shipped. They are not to be trusted!
Not a fan
Nikki from Indiana
I have oily skin and this popped up as perfect for oily skin. It is not! It was super heavy and did not leave my skin feeling clean. The moisturizer was super heavy and I'm pretty sure it caused this awful breakout I am experiencing. I usually get a few pimples but this is like reverting back to my teenage hormonal years 😬
Jessica from Texas
Love this brand. This is a good kit to help with your skin and try out the products. I did purchase full size after buying this kit.
Clean and safe hydration for oily parts
Demeter from Tampa, FL
So far I love how clean the products feel during and after use, smells are light and fresh, and my skin feels like it can still breath after use. Does not feel super dry afterwards, which I know happens to me a lot after I use anything for combo/oily skin. Wish the bonus night cream was a tad bigger.
Cam from Richmond
This is perfect on my oily skin! doesn't leave me super dried out, but it makes me feel very refreshed after use.
I bought it before and loved everything
Veroni from Florida
I live in Florida so it gets so hot and the sun is so strong the moisturizer does great and washing my face with the lotion gel works great it has controlled my oily face this is the second time I ordered this set defenitely worth it good price
char from virginia
after using just this as my skincare routine for about a week, i started breaking out really bad. so i slowly stopped using some products. the toner and face wash really irritated my skin (i have oily/combo skin) and dried my skin out a lot and then had you follow up with a super thick moisturizer. the only good products in this is the face mask and the moisturizer is alright. it's very thick on my skin and smells like straight up sunscreen, but i've been told the ingredients in the moisturizer can be harmful in the future. the night cream didn't do much except make my face oilier. so really, the only product i'll be keeping from this is the face mask.
Pretty good so far
Cee from Oceanside
I just did a review for the anti aging as well I kinda regret getting trail sizes now but I wanted to try them out I use them both when needed depending on my skin and they work great .
Amaris H from Home
I got this a few days ago cause I had really bad acne and oily skin. I've done it every night as part of my routine and honestly it has done wonders for my skin. My acne is clearing up and I no longer have that much oil on my face.
Brand new skin!!!
Oil no More from Phoenix, AZ
I've been using this kit throughout quarantine. My skin is not even the same anymore! My acne (along with birth control) is 98% gone! This kit totally helped with oil. My skin used to be oil city, but now I have a natural matte yet glowy look! The cleanser is very mild. I recommend exfoliating as well only a few times a week. The toner really changed my skin. The moisturizer seems heavy at first but then your skin soaks it up. Night cream is amazing! You wake up with a glow! This is my holy grail! You do have to give it some time though to work.
Soul from Wenatchee, WA
I have been using the wash, toner, and moisturizer for a couple weeks now and it has made a tremendous change! I tried the mask, but I found it made my face oily the next day. I won't be using that one anymore.
I would buy this product again

I love this line!!
julie from tampa
i've been using since february and it is horrible. made me breakout horribly and just didn't like
skin doesn't purge for 8 weeks
Shel from Moscow
So I tried this because i'm a sucker for cute packaging and I heard a bunch of good things. I have been using the facial spray for a while and it was okay. I got this to help with breakouts and my oily skin but geez— after about 3 days my skin started breaking out EVERYWHERE. I assumed it was purging but it's been 8 weeks and it's still so bad. This is the worst my skin has ever been and I'm 20. I will definitely be returning.
Best thing I've ever used
Jara from Texas
I bought this because I wanted to try it before I bought the whole set with the full sized items. It has most definitely been the best skin care regimen that I have tried yet (& I've tried alot). I have oily/combination skin with a hint of (PAINFUL) cystic acne here & there, but since I started using this, I haven't had one breakout & the overall quality & brightness of my skin has drastically improved. Also, I've used this kit everyday for over a month & I just ran out of the cleansing lotion tonight, other than that, I still have over half a bottle of everything else!
Sabina from Layton, Utah
This product me break out even more! The clear areas around my cheeks and chin were clear, but since I started to use this kit, I have acne all over. So disappointed, not worth the money!
Diana from Walnut, CA
This made my face feel so greasy afterwards. It made me totally breakout on my cheeks and my forehead. Didn't help with shine, in fact, it made my face even more oily.
If you have very sensitive skin, I would not recommend it.
Unsatisfied client from Reno, NV
I used the product for the very first time and I started having very dry skin around my lips.
Jennifer from Houston
I have very oily skin and it's hard finding ways to control it but this kit has helped me so much . At the end of the day my oil absorbing sheet barley has anything on it compare to before the whole sheet would be completely used . Definitely re purchasing . Love the products
Great sampler, effective products
anna from New Jersey
I really enjoyed almost all of the products in this kit and will be repurchasing/have purchased full sizes. The only one I was displeased with entirely was the Aloe Moisturizer with SPF, it broke me out horribly. The Seaweed Night Cream has a very strong perfume scent that I could do without entirely. The enzyme cleanser has a similar scent which is lighter and much more tolerable.
