MARIO BADESCU SALON REVIEW

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

A few weeks ago I booked an appointment at the Mario Badescu Salon after my friend raved about the treatments there.I didn't realize that they offer one of the best facials in New York City. Mario Badescu's spa may not be as 'posh' as Bliss but the facials are outstanding. Don't expect quiet quarters, champagne, and zen music but do expect to walk away with beautiful skin.



I booked an early appointment - 9am! I was stunned at how many people were already there so early and 60 minutes later when I walked out, the place was PACKED with women and men, old and young, ready to get their skin care on! This must be the best kept secret ever. While you're paying $100-plus for a facial at a high end salon, you can get a facial here for only $65. Of course, the additions are extra but the basic facial is a wonderful affordable price. The best thing about starting with the basic facial is that you're able to get a clear idea on what treatments you should book in the future.

The skin specialists wear white coats similar to doctors and really know what they're talking about. They can also recommend what's best for your skin and won't try to up sell you just to get a dollar. After your appointment, you're whisked off (this is optional) to a room filled with products. Another skin specialist will suggest a variety of products that you should try based on your skin examination. She filled up a bag (FILLED IT UP) with all of the products in a sample size that she recommended for me to try. I had at least a month worth of samples and I couldn't wait to test them out. A few weeks after my appointment, I got a letter in the mail from the spa thanking me for my service and they even included a discount for my next visit.

I'm interested in trying The Glycolic Acid Treatment. This treatment is an all-natural, rapid exfoliating treatment that stimulates cellular turnover to help you regain a healthy, smooth, and even complexion. Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane that works to loosen the bond that holds dead skin cells together, allowing them to slough away revealing fresh, new skin underneath. The spa offer 6 treatments for $250.

Regular glycolic treatments will result in:
  • Minimizing pore congestion and blackheads
  • Minimizing discoloration from old acne and sun exposure as well as softening the look of fine lines and dull skin.
Now, that my breakouts have stopped thanks to the Murad Pure Skin Supplements (read my review here), I look forward to removing minimal discoloration and any dullness in my skin. Do you have a favorite Mario Badescu product? Comment below! I'd love to hear about it. 

Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement Review

Monday, February 15, 2016

I'm back and I discovered the best dietary supplement for radiant clear skin! I was on Snapchat one day (follow me at: luvjonesy) and I was watching one of my favorite YouTuber's talk about her skin. Lately, her skin has been looking amazing! I wondered what her secret was and she revealed it one day - Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement. I've tried every lotion and potion but never could really get my skin to completely calm down at certain times. I have really good months and then some bad. This summer, my skin was amazing! I hardly wore makeup but then after I started a new job my skin started to change. I was getting more breakouts than normal and I wasn't quite sure why or what to do. I consulted a new Dermatologist and even tried some new products. It seemed to help a little but during that time of the month (when you are more hormonal) I'd still get breakouts. That's when I discovered Murad and decided to try them out. I went to Sephora and was told they were SOLD OUT! Wow, these must be good. I remember walking, determined to get to another location 10 blocks away to pick up a bottle. 



I started by taking two pills in the morning and then two at night. I did this for a month and I noticed amazing results right away. No more breakouts, my skin looked radiant and I was well on my way to recovery. I purchased my bottle at Sephora for $43 but you can also purchase the pills on the Murad website which offers an auto-delivery option (save 20% off) and guarantees you'll never fall behind. To save money, I decided to reduce my intake from four pills a day to only two. Since I didn't suffer from bad acne, I decided that four wasn't all that necessary to get the results I wanted. I suggest starting your first month with four but eventually testing it out to see if you can reduce it down to two. 

Side effects? I didn't really experience any except that your urine will turn a bright yellow color. This caught me off guard but it's definitely not the end of the world. 

Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement is suggested for people looking to:
• Have clearer, healthier-looking skin
• Help prevent clogged pores
• Enhance internal defense against acne

Well all know that clogged pores is a cause of acne and if you've suffered from cystic acne (which is the worst if you ask me) it can be quite difficult to find a facial wash or topical treatment that will rid of it. That's why skin supplements are such a great option. If you suffer from cystic acne I definitely recommend this product. It's been about 3 months and I can't remember the last time I had one pimple. Amazing right? To make my skin even more fantastic I've been getting facials at the Mario Badescu Skin Center in New York City. 

Have you tried these pills and did you like them? Comment below. Stay tuned, I will be doing another full review of this product as well as other products I love for the skin on my YouTube Channel (subscribe here)
