Mario Badescu has quite the client list ranging from Liv Tyler to Lil Kim, from Julia Restoin-Roitfeld to our very own Sofia Coppola. They all flock to his skin care line seeking healthy, luscious, and radiant skin. Sofia’s favorite Mario Badescu product is the Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater. This little gem is all natural, listing its main ingredients as aloe vera gel, bladderwrack (a seaweed rich in minerals), and herbal, rose, and gardenia extracts. The light aromatic mist hydrates dry, tight, and uncomfortable skin leaving a dewy glowing appearance.
With all the celebrity endorsements and a favorable review from Paula Begoun, the "Cosmetics Cop," I really want to like Mario Badescu, but he has failed me in the past. You see, I have purchased the Hyaluronic Eye Cream, the Whitening Mask, and the Drying Lotion and now they sit in the bathroom drawer devoted to failed beauty products. However, when Kellina assigned this Favorite I decided to give Mario Badescu another chance because I love Sofia’s clear complexion. Well, this product won me over — I use it before applying my daily moisturizer and again at night. I have noticed my skin is softer and smoother and does not flake anymore. The Facial Spray definitely came in handy during the extreme temperatures this summer, providing a perfect cooling blast of moisture. You can also use it to set makeup or refresh your dry hair.
