REVISITED | Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel Review5:16 AM
My recent Mario Badescu obsession is the Enzyme Cleansing Gel! I ordered this from Luxola, a Singapore-based makeup and skin care shop however, you can get them in Manila too, (Rustan’s, are you there?). I am not quite sure though how much it sells for here in sunny Manila.
Believed to be Mario Badescu’s best selling daily cleanser, this product smells terrific too! This non-foaming, gel cleanser thoroughly removes the day’s makeup, dirt, and oil without overdrying the skin. Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts contain exfoliating Alpha Hydroxy Acids that help prevent dulling buildup that can cause blackheads and breakouts.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids are my bestfriends these days. They work on my skin pretty well. I used to have quite rough build up on my face but these days, using my Mario Badescu Glycolic toner, it works like a charm! I noticed my skin feeling softer and lesser to almost zero breakout! I have also learned how to love facial oils but that’s going to be another story worth sharing in my blog next time.
Alright, don’t be surprised if this cleanser is without foam! Don’t judge this bottle just yet. In my opinion, it doesn’t over dry my face but it cleanses my face excellently. My face feels smoother after each washing. Usually, I sing Elli Goulding's “Love Me Like You Do” song until I hit one chorus then rinse my face. Haha.
And if you are wondering what are the ingredients, I am listing it here:
Ingredients: Aqua (Water,Eau),Glycerin,Propylene Glycol,PEG-8 Stearate,PPG-2 Hydroxyethyl Cocamide,Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract,Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract,Carbomer,Sodium Chloride,Parfum (Fragrance),Phenoxyethanol,Methylparaben,Propylparaben,Triethanolamine,Diazolidinyl Urea,Mica,CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide),CI 19140 (Yellow 5),CI 42090 (Blue 1),CI 15985 (Yellow 6)
How to Use:Twice daily, massage in a circular motion on wet skin avoiding eye area. Rinse with tepid water. Pat dry and follow with toner or astringent.
Okay, if you own the famous Clarisonic products, they say this cleanser and Clarisonic are the bombs! However, I have yet to own a Clarisonic so I cannot attest to that yet!
|The product comes in green color. Lovely.|
This bottle has 236 ml amount of product and for its price, it’s worth your buck. I think I am going to stay with this cleanser for a while. I really, really love it.
My sincere wish for you ladies is that may you find the right “Mario” products for you just like me.
