Free Mario Badescu Skin Care Samples

I think I first read about these samples Here at Canadian Beauty Reviews Blog, and I ordered my own right away! They came pretty quickly, and are actually pretty generous sample portions - I've used them almost every day for the past 5 days and they still seem basically full....


I was sent a Drying Mask, Special Cucumber Lotion, Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream, Enzyme Cleanser, Oil Free SPF17 Moisturizer, and a Strawberry Face Scrub.

This is what they look like (and as you can see the little jars are full to the top).

They came with a catalogue containing all their products with descriptions/prices/ingredients/etc. It also came with a pamphlet describing when and how to use all the products I was sent.

Drying Mask: This masks literally smells like mud. If you can get over the smell though, it works amazingly. I don't know if it was the combination of using all these products, or the mask specifically, but this did wonders for my skin.

Special Cucumber Lotion: This 'lotion' is really an astringent. And it smells like one too - i.e. not very pleasant. However, like the mask, it works really well

Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream: I am in love with this. You only need the tiniest dab, and it makes the skin around your eyes so smooth and more awake looking.

Enzyme Cleanser: This cleanser seems to work like any other - I'm not one to be really picky about cleansers generally. The only downfall is the sample came in a bottle without a spout, so it's kind of hard to get out of the bottle without squeezing an entire huge blob out.

Oil Free SPF 17 Moisturizer: This is the only product I haven't actually used yet... waiting for a sunny day  to make use of that SPF! 

Strawberry Face Scrub: This literally smells like strawberry shortcake. The scent is a little too sweet for me since I don't really like the smell of strawberries, but for strawberry lovers, this would probably love at first...wash? It's not very exfoliating, more like a wash than a scrub (the "exfoliating beads" are actually strawberry seeds! but there are unfortunately not enough of them to get a good "scrub"). It works as a great cleanser though!

I am so happy that they sent me all these for free! And they arrived rather quickly too - about 2 weeks. I'll likely order the full sized mask since even though it smells like mud, seems to work wonders!

    1. Start using dime-nickel-quarter size dollops of everything (shampoo, face wash, toothpaste, etc)! You'll thank me later. Any more than that is really just wasting the product!

      I'm sure they'll be there any day now! Also - well worth the wait... Everything I've been using works really well and I've been using mine for over a week now and I swear they are never-ending (they all look basically still full)!
