So since about Oct of last year I have been using these two Mario Badescu products. Most reviews about this skin care line are all based on the acne products...but in reality, not EVERYONE has an acne what about those with normal skin, or even sensitive skin? What can this company offer for me? Well, I was at Ulta one day and checking out this line...and I was very surprised to see that they have PLENTY of non-acne products! YAY! So I decided to try a scrub and a mask...I have combination skin, not acne pron, can get dry in the winter, and oily in the summer, and VERY sensitive! I picked up the Strawberry Face Scrub, and the Orange Tonic Mask, and very pleased with both!

Skin Types: All

Made with real Strawberry seeds that gently buff away flaky skin while natural AHA’s break down dulling build-up to unclog pores and prevent blackheads. It improves skin's overall texture by revealing healthy, glowing skin.

How to Use: 2-3 times weekly, cleanse face and apply scrub to wet skin. Massage gently and rinse. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.

Beauty Tip: Leave scrub in the shower so you will remember to use it. Do not leave jar exposed to intense heat or direct light.

Ingredients: Deionized Water,Stearic Acid, Strawberry Extract, Seamollient,Propylene Glycol Dipelargonate,Polyglycol Ester,Myristate DEA

My thoughts: This stuff is like a thick whipped strawberry fluff, w/seeds in it! It smells delightful and feels great on your skin! The seeds are very gentle, but still exfoliates the skin nicely...perfect for sensitive skin!
I will definitely be repurchasing this stuff! 

Skin Types: Combination, Oily, Sensitive

Benefits: Purify and tighten pores with this refreshing clay mask designed to treat normal, combination or slightly oily skin types. Reduce pore-clogging build-up that can cause pimples and blackheads by using this mask regularly. Rejuvenates dull skin with Orange Peel Extract, a natural AHA which exfoliates the skin.

How to Use: Apply a thin layer of mask on clean skin avoiding eye area. Wait 15-20 minutes and rinse thoroughly with tepid water. Follow with moisturizer or night cream. May be used 2-3 times a week.

Ingredients: Deionized Water (Aqua), Kaolin,Wheat (Triticum Vulgare) Starch, Seamollient,Orange Peel (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Extract,Balsam (Myroxylon Pereirae Resin) Peru, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Sorbitol

My Thoughts: Again, I'm sold on this stuff! My first reaction was "is it supposed to be this watery?" Its not a normal mask, and is very a little goes a long way...which is good, considering the size of the jar is pretty small. You just lightly dab your fingers in it and apply a very thin layer. It is great if you have large pores as it is tightening. My skin feels amazing after I use this stuff! This will be another repurchase as well.

Overall: I had a very good experience with this brand. After the first day of using both products I got asked at work if I had gotten laid, because I was glowing! haha the answer was no, so I knew it was my new scrub and mask! So to all you ladies that are NOT acne prone, there are still amazing products from Mario Badescu!
