BEAUTY: MARIO BADESCU
For the longest I have said to myself that I would love to start creating some beauty content for you guys. And it's finally happening! Fashion isn't only thing that I love to create content for, there's other things too. I have been asked on numerous occasions about my skin & make up etc. So here it goes.
I'm sure you guys have seen the Mario Badescu products about and I've given in to trying a couple things out. I have gone for the Drying Lotion & Facial spray with Aloe, herbs and rose water. Now I was particularly interested in the facial spray as I have seen heard so many good things about aloe & rose water for the skin in particular.
Aloe Vera: "Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. ... Additionally, in Ayurvedic medicine, Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema"

When I read the bottle about how multipurpose it was in terms of how it behaves to cater to your skin and your whole face in general. And apparently you can use it on dry hair for a light moisturising mist. Now that just depends on how your hair is set up. My natural hair is quite bushy/curly/frizzy so that won't do it much justice. But those who have hair that aren't that dehydrated but just want a light mist then this is for you too. I love using it when my face has been freshly washed and exfoliated, I'll just mist this all over my face and follow it up with a gel moisturiser. Then I will use it right at the end of my make up routine to set my face but especially give my face a healthy dewy look/texture. And of course, it smells so pretty!

You apply this over night and provides a immediate relief from break-outs and blemishes. And trust me, the results are immediate. Not only have I used this but I have seen others use it and have said it worked. This product was actually recommended to me from a MUA friend of mine. As I currently have a fringe, sometimes I tend to break out a lot more on my forehead than anywhere else. So this is perfect for me right now.
