Find in Store-

Target very dry and mature skin with this soothing blend of youth-boosting peptides and botanicals. This blend of peptides and sorghum bicolor stalk Juice work together to help encourage a smoother, more lifted and toned appearance while white willow bark keeps dull, lackluster skin at bay - all contributing to a clear, radiant and youthful complexion. Chamomile extract, yarrow extract and aloe vera are also included to help soothe even the most sensitive skin types while green tea acts as a powerful antioxidant. For best results, may be used before the Peptide Renewal Cream.
Apply 1-2 drops to the face (avoiding eye area), neck, and décolletage. May be used alone or under moisturizer. For best results, use both day and night. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal Serum:

    I was pressured into buying this and I thought for sure I was going to end up returning it. But it turns out It wasn't bad so I kept using it day and night and after. After the 2nd bottle is when I really seen a difference in my skin. It's more hydrated, my acne is completely gone, my scars look better, my texture looks better. Im on my 4th bottle and my skin just keeps getting better. I'm just all around in love with this and I will keep using this as long as Mario Bedescu keeps making it!!!

    Sticky mess :( not for me

    By Wendy

    from Florida

    Comments about Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal Serum:

    This is so sticky! Also, you will need like 6 drops, NOT 2 like it says on the directions! I have used it a couple of times; gave it time to sink in (hours) and it still felt sticky. I'm 27 and have dry skin & thought this would provide hydration, not a sticky mess. I guess this is meant for older skin. I gave it to my mother who's 57.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal Serum:

    I have tried the vitamin c serum and peptide renewal! I am 19 and even though the brand recommends the vitamin c for younger people I am in LOVE with the peptide renewal serum! It is the ONLY serum I've ever used that does not make me break out! I use it every other day, at night before bed and even tho it is a little heavy (& I still don't break out!!! Bonus) it has completed changed my face. it has turned my sensitive skin from dry with blotchy red spots to clear, hydrated, and smooth!!! (I still have red but that's just my skin) plus if you start early you'll never have to worry right???? My skin looks AMAZING and I'm almost finished with my first bottle! This stuff has lasted me MONTHS! I love it so much, my favorite serum!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal Serum:

            Disappointed in this product. It was recommended by the Ulta associate in the store as I requested a fragrance free serum due to allergies. I don't care for the sticky feeling on my skin after application. My skin was sticking to my pillowcase so I switched to a daytime application but still found it a problem. It is too early to tell if it would firm my neck area but I likely won't buy it again.

                      If you find 1-2 drops to not be enough for face a neck, you can squeeze a small pea sized amount into the palm of your hand for application. I typically apply this serum with one drop on the forehead, one drop on each cheek and one drop on the neck, for a total of 4 drops.

                      A:

                      The Peptide Renewal Serum is formulated to help lock moisture into dehydrated skin. If used as directed, it should not clog your pores. For your skin type though, we would recommend the Herbal Hydrating Serum (http://www.ulta.com/herbal-hydrating-serum?productId=xlsImpprod6200723&sku=2209861&_requestid=6542988) an oil-free formulation that helps to hydrate skin without clogging pores. It is a very versatile product, as it can be used both day or night – alone or layer with a moisturizer for added hydration.

                      Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum may be a better match for you. It is a MB favorite of all ages. Peptide Renewal Serum may be too rich for your skin - unless you are super dry, then it may work for you.

                      The Peptide Renewal Serum is generally recommended for mature, dry skin. We would only recommend this for a 26 year old with extremely dry skin in need of extreme nourishment.

Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum is recommended for all skin types to help reveal luminous, youthful skin. It is formulated with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Collagen. It's a favorite of all ages!
