Black Friday Goodies: Mario Badescu {Guest Post}

Being a December baby, I have never started my Christmas shopping before December 14th, and I had never partaken in Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals (* gasp *, I know!). However, this year I finally gave in--well was tempted to opt in by a great deal from Mario Badescu. The Black Friday deal was for free shipping on all orders of $50 or more, a free gift, and three free samples. I’ve been using their Glycolic Foaming Cleanser for a few weeks alongside my Clarisonic Mia and absolutely LOVE the combo! So I figured it would be best to take advantage of this sale and find more of their products to incorporate into my skin care regimen.

For $60, I snagged full sized: Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin; Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion; Drying Lotion; and Facial Spray with ALo, Herbs, and Rosewater. I also snagged three sample sizes of: the Calma Mask, Cucumber Cleansing Lotion, and the Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF-30. Yes all of that for $60!! What a deal! I am most excited about the Drying Lotion, which is a spot acne treatment. The product claims to shrink whiteheads virtually overnight! I need this in my life!

In my next guest post, I will offer you guys a review of all of my recently scored Mario Badescu goodies! Here’s to a new skin care regimen!
