Mario Badescu: Baring All (Before Pics)

I'm starting my Mario Badescu skincare regime today! I'm really excited about this. I've had this feeling before about other products. I felt it at the start of my Lush skincare regime and while it worked for a year and a half and still is to some extent, I think I need to try something new. Something with chemicals...mmm...chemicals.



(Fully aware that I look deeply unimpressed about posting ugly pictures of myself on the internet - all about honesty though right?)

Lots of scarring, one or two active spots which are drying up but are most certainly still there. Time of the month is coming up so I'll no doubt have a monster of a breakout around my jawline and on my cheeks. I also have lots of small white bumps under the surface of my skin, mostly around my T-Zone.

What am I aiming for?

I'm not unreasonable nor am I unrealisitc. I don't expect miracles or airbrushed looking skin in 2 weeks. Ideally, I'd like to have my acne under control to the point where I'm only experiencing small hormonal breakouts. I'd like my scarring to fade and for my skin texture to improve so that covering the scarring I do have is much easier. More than anything, I'd like consistent skin so I'm not jumping from a heavy foundation to a tinted moisturizer every couple weeks.


  1. Good luck! I hope it works for you. :)

  2. Cant wait to see how it pans out for you! I HATE the ones i get all over my jawline and cheeks. Ones on your upper lip are the sorest eff-ers ever! .x

  3. Chrissy, what did you use from LUSH skincare before :)? am curious to try their skincare stuff!

  4. Aofie: I killed one of those upper lip feckers last week. They're horrible! x

    Jennifer: Check out the Lush skincare review I posted a few days ago :) x

  5. Aw good luck to you!

    I'm surprisingly finding my skin to be better now that I've stopped using Clinique's 3 step two weeks ago and switched to Simple and Clinique's anti-blemish moisturiser. Stupid me bought the 400ml clarifying lotion, thinking I'll save money and now struggling to finish up that toxic bottle.

    Do you notice any additional breakouts caused by certain food, like sugar? If not, lucky thing :)

  6. Thank you Cassie!

    I've never noticed my diet affecting my skin but I do notice when my water intake is low, my skin breaks out!

    I never got on with Clinique either. I was a student at the time and saved up to buy the 3 step system and it just wrecked my face! If you're not that into the product, think about donating it to give and makeup! xx

  7. Great post! Hope it works out. I have great acne treatments and skin care on my blog.

  8. Hope it goes well :-) I'm pretty lucky with my skin but I get awful hormonal breakouts just under my mouth that hurt like a b****. I'm considering getting the drying lotion for them so I'll be really to hear how the line works for you.
    I've heard nothing but bad things about Cliniques three step stuff. I'll be staying well clear! xx


I love comments and appreciate every single one.
