Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub

Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub on Belle Belle Beauty

I recently have been frustrated by clogged pores on my nose. I hate to admit to it but likely cause is falling asleep with makeup on (gasp!) and now I am paying the price. While I am tempted to reach for those oddly satistfying Bioré nose strips, I happened to have a new scrub from fan-favorite Mario Badescu to test out.

Not surprisingly, their newest lives up to Mario’s amazing reputation. This scrub works against buildup (hello, friend!) and banishes dullness. The Ecuadorian Ivory Palm seeds are fairly gentle and my skin is left calm without redness. And botanicals like Ginger, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Aloe, and Coconut are infused in the gel-like formula. I don’t detect much of a scent – a good thing in my book.

I use a couple times a week – usually three coinciding with my hair-wash days. I splash warm water to rinse and those little clogged pores are banished – until my next makeup removal misbehavior. At least next time I doze off before washing my face, I’ll know how to erase signs of my sins.
