Mario Badescu Awesomeness

Hey y’all! I sound a lot more peppy on here than I really am right now. Lol. I got sick out of nowhere yesterday and have been feeling super crappy. I went to bed at 8 pm and did not even crack my eyes until 10 this morning. I had chills, aches, hot flashes and a headache. I was feeling like I was going to die. (I know, I was being melodramatic but it happens. Lol.) Even now as I write this at 10 at night I am still not feeling 100%, hell I am not even feeling 80% but I gotta suck it up. I go back to work at both jobs tomorrow after having an entire week off from both = spoiled. Lol.

Moving on. Tonight I figured I would let y’all in on a little secret about Mario Badescu.

Most makeup and skin care lovers have heard of Mario Badescu, especially the drying lotion that they are so well known for but did you know they will send you free samples of each product that they deem necessary for your skin?

I bet you didn’t.

I know what you are thinking, how in the hell did you score all that?! Simple, I took their skin care quiz on the website, which can be found ->here and wait. Seriously, click that link and be amazed. I took the quiz and waited about 1-2 weeks before I got an e-mail back from them asking if they could send me some the products to test out. Hello?! Your girl does not say no to free products. Lol.

The first thing that comes in the package is a brochure that explains each of the products and how to use them and when.

This scrub is formulated to refine and perfect your complexion with a unique combination of finely ground Ecuadorian Ivory Palm seeds and nourishing botanicals, including Ginger, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Aloe, and Coconut. This gentle, gel-based formula sloughs off the dulling dead skin cells that can lead to breakouts or cause skin to look lifeless and aged, helping you to achieve clearer, younger-looking, more radiant skin.

I have yet to test out any of these products but how cool is it that they are willing to send you samples to be able to test out?! I mean I can totally support any company that is fully willing to let you sample their products first because some of these can be expensive but not anymore than normal drug store skin care prices. I think I would rather spend the money on this stuff than some of the other stuff. Like I said before, I haven’t tried this stuff out as of yet. I am waiting to finish all my current skin care stuff which should be by the end of the month and then I will update y’all!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday night before the week starts tomorrow.
