Mario Badescu is one of my favorite skincare brands. I have reviewed and recommended several products over the years. Pair that with Clarisonic, the sonic care cleansing brush that started it all, and it's a match made in skincare heaven. This match seems like a no brainer so my only question is why did Mario Badescu and Clarisonic take so look to hook up? (I need answers!)
Now that the Mario Badescu and Clarisonic celebrity hook up is official, let's look at what we get out of this union: (Of course it's about us. Duh.)
Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush
Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush has two speeds, and like all other Clarisonics, it gently oscillates back and forth over 300 times per second providing a clean that is clinically proven to be 6 times better than cleaning with hands alone. When you use the Clarisonic, all your lotions and potions absorb better into the skin so you get more from your skincare products. The Mia 2 is waterproof, so feel free to get your cleanse on in the shower. It also features a proprietary T-Timer to help you to not over cleanse -- it goes for a minute: 20 seconds on the forehead, 20 seconds on the nose/chin and 10 seconds on each cheek. I know plenty of people who think longer is better, so, a timer is a genius move. The brush comes with the Clarisonic pLink Charger, Sensitive Brush Head and White Protective Travel Case.
Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel
Not only is this one of my favorite cleansers of all time, it just so happens to be Mario Badescu's best selling cleanser. This non-foaming gel cleanser thoroughly removes dirt, grime and makeup without drying out the skin. It contains papaya and grapefruit extracts that provide very gently exfoliation that lead to more radiant skin. [Kit will include a 2 ounce bottle.]
Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum
If you use this Vitamin C serum on its own you'll more than likely notice a change in your skin in two to three weeks. It contains 7.5% Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) to help protect the skin from pesky free radicals and it also reduces discoloration to reveal brighter skin. The Hyaluronic Acid in the formula helps the skin to hold on to its moisture. (This is great when used before sunscreen -- especially as the weather warms up.) [Kit will include .3 ounce bottle]
Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer
Is described as "a gentle, AHA-based moisturizer formulated with Lemon Extract and soothing Aloe Vera Gel helps rejuvenate dull, congested and pigmented skin." (I haven't tried this yet but it sounds promising.) [Kit will include a 1 ounce bottle.]
Some celebrity hookups seem to be about hype and tend to fizzle out leaving losers on both sides. Not this one. The Mia 2 Mario Badescu Skin Favorites Set is the start of something special, I can feel it! The set has everything you need to be super hydrated and radiant this spring! It is available at Clarisonic.com and retails for $149.
