Check out our top nine picks that are on a major sale right now for Prime Day that could basically overhaul your entire skin-care routine.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum
Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser
In case you’ve ever doubted the power of this Drying Lotion, just check its credentials. This Allure award-winning acne spot treatment has 10,000 five-star reviews all raving about the product's ability to get rid of breakouts at a rapid speed. Simply apply a small amount to the breakout before going to bed, and rinse in the morning.
The Anti Acne Serum is another breakout necessity if you, like many of us, are dealing with maskne. It's loaded with salicylic acid to help get rid of bumps fast. Best of all, you can put it on under your mask and treat your skin without anyone knowing.
Salicylic acid, aloe vera, and chamomile make the Acne Facial Cleanser a potent treatment that won't further irritate already inflamed skin. Use it once a day to prevent acne and to keep pores clear without overdrying the surface.
Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer
Mario Badescu Lip Balm
Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream
If dry indoor air has your skin craving a rich and indulgent moisture fix, stock up on the Buttermilk Moisturizer. It has lactic acid to gently slough away roughness and allantoin to help soothe sensitive skin.
Dry lips are a nuisance all too common during the fall and winter months, and that's why a super emollient Lip Balm is a must-have. Mario Badescu's version is made with cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E — and your lips will thank you. If you're experiencing excess dryness, you can apply a larger amount and leave it on overnight for an overnight lip mask experience.
It's no secret that the nighttime skin-care regimen is the most important, which is why this Seaweed Night Cream should be added to your cart immediately. The combination of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid works overnight to plump and firm skin, and it's oil-free, so it won't further clog pores.
Mario Badescu A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap
Mario Badescu Mist and Glo Facial Spray Collection
Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub
Yep, Mario Badescu has also managed to master body care, and the A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap is a winner — and an Allure Best of Beauty winner, at that. Formulated with papaya and grapefruit extracts, this body wash removes dead skin from the surface. However, the infusion of oat milk ensures that the skin doesn’t dry out — a perfect combination to combat body acne.
It's no coincidence that the Mist and Glo Facial Spray Collection has a whopping 4,500 five-star reviews on Amazon. The Cucumber, Rose, and Lavender trio hydrates the skin with an array of botanicals like chamomile and aloe. It's perfect to use before applying your serum or moisturizers, or just for a general skin refresh.
