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 have combination skin, and I regularly use the brand first aid beauty, but most times I go in store they've been out of stock, so I opted to buy this kit to test it out and possibly switch as it's significantly cheaper than what I normally get. Well after just two days of using as directed I've noticed a significant amount of breakouts and redness in my face. I normally don't have bad acne and when o do get breakouts it's one or two small spots. But my entire face has began to breakout. Also, after washing my face does not feel clean, it only feels super oily. Aside from all of that, the smell is not that great either. It's a cheaper brand, and it's definitely noticeable. The quality of this product is horrendous.
Love it but where's the mask :(
Lollipop from Wasilla, AK
I fell in love with these products when I bought this. The enzyme cleanser feels wonderful and I use it every other day. I have other items I use in my routine instead of the items in here besides the wash and mask. This mask is my holy grail, I swear by it. But I can't find it on the website anymore :( not sure what's going on but I hope it comes back soon.
Best skincare line ever
Heatherberlin from Sacramento
I use this product twice daily in my skincare regime. I absolutely LOVE it. I'm never using another skin care line but this one. It helps with oil control and helps keep skin clear and has great anti aging properties in it. No irritation from it and my skin is so soft!
This is my daughters favorite brand!
Jen from Oregon
My daughter is 16 with combination skin and hormonal acne that can sometimes pop up. I bought her this combo/oily kit to cut out the guess work of what to use and when. She loves this stuff!

My eyes. Oh God. My eyes!
Kathleen from California
My face felt clean, but the cleanser got in my eyes 95% of the time.

Brittney from burton

Half and half
Sophia from North Durango
Cleanser- it was really hydrating but if your looking for a cleanser to remove makeup this is not for you 8.5/10
Toner- horrible it smells like rubbing alcohol and it burned and dried my skin do not buy 0/10
Moisturizer- it's amazing and I'm pretty sure it has no fragrance but if your looking for spf it's not enough it's only SPF 15 but other than that it's amazing 10/10
Face mask- it was okay it did not really come with a lot of product 5/10
Eye cream- it was very moisturizing but eye creams aren't necessary 7/10
Definitely not worth it
leah from California
I really tried to love this product and brand but unfortunately none of their products have done me any good. I seriously don't recommend using this product, I have oily skin and using this just made my face more oily and break out BIG TIME. There are definitely better brands out there.
DO NOT BUY
Olivia from Missouri
I used this abs convinced myself I needed it because everyone has this brand. It was AWFUL on my skin. All of their products have ingredients that are not good for your skin. It makes your skin worse so then you have to buy more. It is also expensive. I can recommend products that are better for your skin, look aesthetically pleasing on your counter, and that actually work.

I used it everyday once i got home and is magic
Caused worse breakouts
Jess from Lake Stevens, WA
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.
