Free Samples from Mario Badescu

A few months go one of my favorite blog buddies, Morgan, posted a picture on Instagram of 
her FREE Mario Badescu samples.

Skin Care + Free + Mario Badescu = I AM ON IT!

I have a borderline obsession with trying quality skin care products that help with aging and/or acne because let's face it, I am not getting any younger, the wrinkles have landed and I have acne prone skin. 

So, when Morgan told me that Mario Badescu was offering a few products to try for FREE, 
I hopped on their website just as fast as my little fingers could type.

All you have to do is go here and fill out a quick questionnaire about your skin type. 
Then, in about a week, you will be shipped all of this...for FREE.

Honestly, I do not believe it matters what information you give them about your skin because
from what I have seen, the company pretty much sends out the same samples to everyone.
Not complaining, just saying. 

My two favorites are the healing and soothing mask and the strawberry facial scrub.
The mask really helps calm irritation and redness from breakouts.
The strawberry scrub is an excellent exfoliant and smells delicious.

I realize that there are a gazillion skin care lines out there. 

Believe me, I feel like I have tried them all. 

I will tell you, that Mario Badescu is one of the best I have found.
I can't say I have tried everything that they offer, but I have tried a few and
they have seriously saved my life.
Okay, maybe not my life, but my self confidence!

Here are two that I can't live without. 
They can be found online or at your local Ulta Store.

 Drying Lotion
This stuff is magical. Just dip a Q-tip into the bottle and spot treat anywhere on your face or body.
It WILL quickly, almost overnight, reduce large and small breakout areas.
It contains calamine which is also great for taking the itch out of mosquito bites.
It's been a lifesaver for us this summer.

Buffering Lotion
I tend to get large cystic acne on my face and this formula was created specifically for that.
It's fast adsorbing and has anti-inflammatory ingredients to promote fast healing.
Another lifesaver!

Have you tried any Mario Badescu products? If so, which ones are your favorites?

Yay for free stuff! I get scared when trying new facial products though for fear of what it'll do to my skin.

Good deal! I just did the questionnaire. Did you have to buy anything? I didn't see it say anything about shipping me samples. But I'll take them! They have the best stuff!!

I love the pink drying lotion. My husband tells me I look like a kid who went camping, got mosquito bites and had to put calomine lotion on. But I obviously don't care when I wake up with clear skin.

I want free stuff too! Thanks for the tips :)

meghan said...

I filled it out! Thanks! When I finished it took me to the products it recommended for me to add to my shopping cart. Did I do it right? It didn't say anything about free samples...

Thanks Shanna! Can't wait to try it! I've used the drying lotion before and really like it. And that Strawberry scrub you got looks delicious!

The company should send you an email a few days later and you have to confirm that you want them to send you samples!
