Review: Mario Badescu Facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater

I finally caved and I bought the 8 fl oz version of the spray and I’m so glad I did. Between my dry skin and random chin patches this is a perfect way to get my makeup looking more dewy. I can definitely smell the rose in there with herbs. I was worried it would smell more potent in all the wrong ways but NOPE!

The price is really good. I’m currently misting my beautyblender with it. it works great. I can definitely see myself using this product long term. I’m going to find a travel spray container so I can take it with me on travel! This might even replace my tatcha one?!

 

Switching Up Routines

I used to start my day with either the eve lom morning cleanser or a cleansing water if not a cleanser with vitamin c in it. Right now after reading the one interview with Charlotte Gainsbourg I instantly had to have the evian water spray. She was talking about how she spritzes it on her face in the morning then wipes her face with cotton or something. Just really simple but cool so I started doing that in the mornings and I was still dry and I added a new non-alcohol toner the Mario Badescu aloe one. I am so happy with the MB aloe toner I had to write about it. that’s step 2 in the morning and then I finish off with a nice cream like Dr. Hauschka or Dermalogica.

Nights I will start my removing process with either burt’s bees or the sample of Erno Laszlo Phelityl oil. To my surprise they both smell similar like a more lovely version of J&J products. Very soft and almost powdery. Then I’ll wash my face with a white tea cleanser tone with MB aloe toner and slap on some dermalogica.

My makeup routine has changed too. I’m on my very last bit of the it cosmetics your skin but better cc cream (which I plan to repurchase)and I just recently bought a bottle of the Chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation. It has a strong scent to it but the thinness is nice to blend with my regular tinted sunscreens. I mix the two and then I tap on some tarte shape tape in medium and finish my look with some by terry cream blush. lip products I switch around but I feel like my summer products are going to be between 3 items: the Charlotte Tilbury light wonder in #4, the Chanel vitalumiere aqua, and the it cosmetics cc cream but I’m leaning towards the new illuminating one to cut me some slack of blending items. Oh I want the Charlotte Gainsbourg + Nars skin shimmering thingy. don’t know the official name but I want it….im still shocked she chopped off her locks.
