Summer is here which means hot days, the beach, and lots of ice cream. I love the summertime but my skin hates it. For some reason, my skin gets very oily due to the heat which leads to acne breakouts. Recently I’ve suffered from a terrible break out that left the right side of my face covered with acne. No matter what I did or used it got worse. I did a bit of research on skin care brands to see reviews than headed to my local Ulta store.

The two brands I wanted to try were Murad and Mario Badescu. They had very good reviews on many of their products. As I was in the skin care section browsing, an esthetician who was working approached me to see if I had questions or needed assistance. We talked about the problems I was having with my skin and picked out a few products to try. I wanted to start a skincare regimen that I did on a weekly basis to take proper care of my skin.

I went with the brand Mario Badescu because they had a lot of products that were beneficial to my skin. Recommended to me was the Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit. This kit provides products for a regimen designed to give trouble skin a clear start. The kit included four products and one sample product for $30. It includes a Acne Facial Cleanser, Special Cucumber Lotion, Oil Free Moisturizer, Drying Mask, and the sample Drying Cream. Also I purchased the Mario Badescu Grab and Go set that included two products for $22. It includes the Drying Lotion and the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater.

I have been using these products consistently for a over a month and my results have been great. My skin is acne free and I couldn’t be more happier. I suffered one of the worst acne breakouts since I began getting acne. Although Acne for some people like myself is inevitable there are ways to prevent it. In fact it is important to know your skin type, find products that work well with your skin, and create a skin care regimen to keep and maintain healthy clear skin. Good Skin care is important.

What are some of your favorite skin care products?
