My skincare favorites

It’s that time again – GIVEAWAY TIME!  Can you believe it???? ME NEITHER.  Since it’s a new year, I figured I would help one lucky ALB reader get their skincare routine started on a great note with my favorite Mario Badescu products.  What I have here are 4 of the products that my skin can simply not live without – as one of you will soon find out!    Here is what I have to say about each one:
1. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel  – As a new customer to this brand, I am amazed over and over again at how fantastic and EFFECTIVE their products are for my oily, hormonal, acne-prone, petulant-teenager-like skin.  Since it is soap free, and formulated with alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate, it gives me everything my skin needs to stay clear and blemish free – hallelujah! 
2. Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 – I may use 3,468 moisturizers at night that target every single skincare ailment out there, but when it comes to the morning, my go-to every day staple is this one.  Lightweight enough for the summer, but hydrating enough to be used during the winter.   
3. Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion  – My Instagram followers are quite familiar with my love of this toner – since I post it almost once a week in my nightly skincare routine pics, but use it at least 3-5x/wk.  Designed for acne prone/oily skin, this has done wonders for me to help clear up my skin. 
4. Mario Badescu Cucumber Tonic Mask – My clear skin has found a new BFF in this mask.  Rarely has a pore cleansing mask worked so well, without drying me out, and for that I am eternally grateful.  Clear skin = happy blogger = Mario Badescu customer for life.
