I am soo in love with Mario Badescu and his Cucumber, Clay and Tonic Face Mask. right now. I recently finished one of the most painful things in my life ever, a 60 mile 3 day walk for breast cancer (The Susan G Komen Foundation 3 day). Although the walk was extremely challenging, it was well worth it. Now, the way that this relates back to Mario Badescu is that while you are walking 20 miles each day in the sun, you not only get burned, but you sweat, get oily and your skin can really loose the color and look you work so hard at achieving on a daily basis.
The only skin care I bought and brought was Mario Badescu. I am always open to trying new skin care products and lines, however I am now becoming extremely loyal and almost exclusive to Mario Badescu. As you can see from the banner above, so are many of our favorite celebrities. Anyways, back to the Mario Badescu Cucumber, Clay and Tonic Mask (Click this link to see and buy it). Each night when I got back to my hotel room my skin looked like hell. I had blackheads and sunburn and oil all over. Luckily, one of the items I packed, which is above and beyond one of my top two favorite Mario Badescu products is the Cucumber and Tonic Mask. I would simple apply the mask after rinsing off and drying my face, then as the mask starts to dry, you get this womderful cooling sensation that made all of the sunburn pain just instantly leave.
Besides the cooling relief from Sunburn, this mask is probably the tightest mask I have ever had in my life. You can actually feel it lifting your skin and tightening your pores. It is absolutely amazing. When you have had it on for roughly 20 minutes (I usually keep it for up to 30) you’ll notice something miraculous, all of your blackheads will be gone. I do not know how this mask clears them, but when I wash it off my skin is amazingly clear and if I am not doing a 60 mile walk, my skin stays blackhead free for a day or two after.
This clarity is amazing in that before I began using the mask, I would remove all blackheads every morning, and by the time I was ready for bed, they would all be back again. I figured it was an endless and worthless battle, until I discovered the Mario Badescu Cucumber and Tonic Mask with a clay base.
I don’t want to keep rambling, but this is a product I swear by because it actually does everything it is supposed to and then some. For me, it soothes sunburn, tightens my skin and pores as well as cleans blackheads and makes my skin look and feel refreshed. I strongly encourage you all to click this link and buy the Mario Badescu Cucumber Tonic Mask and experience it for yourself. It also makes an excellent pre-present or gift to hand the bride before her big day.
