best skincare combination skin mario badescu first aid beauty face mist
I have a very love/hate relationship with that dreaded period every couple of months where you ever so conveniently run out of skincare all at once. I mean, i do love skincare - but buying it all at once is a bit of a chore, i’d rather spend my money on a new eyeshadow palette or a steak and cocktail date night. To make it a little more exciting, this month i purchased some new products to try out - and the impossible happened. I love them all. So naturally i had to share my new finds with you, they come highly recommended. (Just for reference, my skin is combination and pretty sensitive.) 

I was going to dedicate an entire post to reviewing the famous Mario Badescu Drying Lotion because i’m so happy with it. This product is hyped up so much to the point it seems almost too good to be true - but honestly i’m so here for this and all the praise it gets. Is it a magical miracle worker? No. Well, not quite. But close. I personally don’t really suffer with spots (very lucky, i know.) But, at ‘that time of the month,’ my hormones send my chin wild. This stuff also works amazingly on under skin spots and blemishes. I’ll admit that the scent and initial burning when i first applied it threw me a little, but you do get used to it and the results are worth it. 

I’m sure you’ve heard of/seen someone using the equally as hyped Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Lavender and Chamomile. If not, you’ve been living under a rock. After the success i had with the drying lotion i couldn’t ignore the countless recommendations for the facial spray.  I actually opted for the Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea spray because I’m not a big Lavender fan, nor is my skin. I’ve found this spray to be extremely refreshing, uplifting and detoxifying. I spritz this on my face twice a day and i’ve noticed my skin looking less congested, redness has reduced and it generally feels cleaner and glowy. I’ve also noticed a reduction in blemishes, but I think that’s thanks to the Drying lotion too - these products are a power couple. 

Because i’ve been getting through that so quickly I impulse bought a ‘back up,’ toner whilst re-purchasing my beloved First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. To be honest I just really liked the look of the FAB Vital Greens Facial Mist. I was a bit disappointed with the size of this spray for £14, it’s smaller and more pricey than the Mario mist. The Vital Greens mist really does smell of your 'vital greens,' (vegetables of the green colour) if you will. I haven't had long to try this out yet, but it pretty much has the same immediate effects as the Mario spray, but the smell is more pungent and it makes my skin feel soft. 

One thing I was definitely not disappointed with when it arrived was the re-purchase of my beloved First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. (This is the smallest bottle, and it's still pretty decent if you're only using it on your face.) I used this last year and I swear it literally transformed my skin, like it literally changed my skin type from awfully dry to combination. 'Repaired,' it, as the name suggests. But that aside, this is generally just a gorgeous moisturiser for dry/dehydrated/normal/combo skin, I'd stray away if you're oily. Over all, it just really perfects my skin, keeps it hydrated, soft, plump and calm. The scent is very discreet, and the formula isn't too thick or too runny - so it doesn't clog your pores or make you look like an oil slick.
