[REVIEW] Special Cucumber Lotion & Anti Acne Serum | Mario Badescu

13 April 2015

Hola  Are your having sensitive skin and only can use certain skin care? Well, then you shouldn't missed this post because it might added into your skin care collection. =) Me myself consider sensitive skin so I only able to use certain brands. Some ingredients with strong effect can even makes my skin getting worst, Therefore, it quite frustrated whenever I choose any skin care. =X

When I received Mario Badescu items from Luxola, I was kinda worried because I never try this brand before so I'm afraid these skin care might not suitable for my skin. Fyi, Mario Badescu Skin Care is one of the most profound skin care products in the world, which believes in old age skin care techniques. Enjoying a legacy of over 40 years as a skin care solution, the brand works on the vision of its founder Mario Badescu: simplicity is the key to healthy, clean, radiant skin. Products by Mario Badescu in Malaysia help thousands of individuals in their fight with acne, rosacea, aging skin and other skin related issues very effectively.

The items that I received was Special Cucumber Lotion and Anti Acne Serum. The reason that I'd chosen these items is because lotion is a MUST for me because I use it 2-3 times daily and I don't have any anti-acne serum so I would love to give it a try. =)

Use twice daily.

As you can see my acne been reduced after used for 2 weeks

For Lotion :
Fortunately my sensitive skin doesn't allergic to this as this is the first time I tried on this brand. I use this lotion as a toner. Its refreshing, non drying and keeps pimples at bay. Since cucumber is suitable for all skin types so if you're having sensitive skin like me, no worries because it doesn't bring any negative effect on my skin.

For Serum :
Frankly, I'm quite impressed with this anti acne serum because recently my face pop out some acne due to lack of sleep and high pressure. Thank god it does helps to reduce and prevent acne,  This serum is a little sticky when you apply it, but it absorbs into my skin quickly, leaving my skin smooth and matte. It does improve my skin.
