For my readers, you may recall that I purchased the Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C a couple weeks ago after I was shamed into using a moisturizer. I’ve absolutely falling in love with this moisturizer. I won’t ramble on and on about it, just know that it is a must have. I also told you about how on the website you could answer a few questions about your skin type and they would send you products that will help your particular skin type. I finally got my sample pack. It took about 15 business days for it to get to me. I even had to call the customer service line to find out what was going on. the representative told me that may order had been received and that it would take a couple days because the samples are such a high demand. A couple days later I checked the mail and it was here. As you can see in the picture below it came in a white branded envelope.
Inside it came with about 8 different product samples, a customized letter with a list of samples they sent to e based off my skin analysis test. It also came with a product guide on how to use each sample.And finally it came with Product Guide of everything they have to offer.
My skin analysis determined that I have normal skin tone.
The samples they sent for my skin tone was:
- Aloe Lotion
- Bee Pollen Night Cream
- Enzyme Cleaning Gel
- Flower & Tonic Mask
- Glycolic Eye Cream
- Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C
- Strawberry Face Scrub
After about a week the products have mostly ran out and I’ve determine a couple things
- Time consuming – It literally took me about 25-30 minutes to remove my makeup, wash my face, exfoliate and apply multiple creams. My normal face routine normally take about 10 minutes. It may not of been the best routine, but it got the job done. Because it took so long it brought me to the next thing…
- I really don’t need all of these products – although all of these products were recommended for me, it’s not necessary that I use them all. After almost two weeks of using the samples and running out some, it was pretty clear what I needed and what I didn’t. For me the ultimate goal is for me moisturize my face, keep breakouts away and remove the black heads. None of these products helped with the black heads, some helped with breakouts and blemishes but it really did help with the moisturizing of my face, which makes me really happy. So the products I decided to go with the Strawberry face scrub, the bee pollen night cream and you already know the Hydro moisturizer with vitamin c.
In conclusion I would highly suggest you to take the skin analysis on the Mario Badescu site to determine what products you need to help achieve healthy skin.
