So I signed up for these Mario Badescu samples in the mail. Anyone can get these samples by going to their site and doing the skincare questionnaire. Once you take the quiz, the site will let you know which products they recommend for you. After a day or two you get an email asking you if you would like to try samples of their recommendations, and I accepted that offer! Here is what I got:
|Lots of goodies.|
The samples also came with a nice little brochure that told me how to use each product. You can tell it was based on my skincare quiz results because it is printed out with my name and all the specific samples they sent me.
What great customer service from Mario Badescu! I also had a couple of questions about the site and was able to connect to a chat specialist right away, even on Sunday. Customer service is huge to me - there are SO many skincare brands out there that it makes a huge difference when you can expect good customer service through the brand. The one thing I think the site is missing is that it doesn't save the recommendations they sent you. So if you do this deal, hold on to your card!
So here is what I got and what I think of it:
|Product Name||Notes||Would I buy?|
|Almond and Honey Non-Abrasive Face Scrub||There are better exfoliating scrubs out there||N|
|Aloe Lotion||great toner! Not drying||Y|
|Collagen Moisturizer (SPF 15)||Light moisturizer with SPF||Y|
|Drying Cream||Haven't had a chance to try it, don't need right now||?|
|Enzyme Cleansing Gel||Might be a good replacement for Philosophy Purity||Y|
|Flower & Tonic Mask||Haven't tried yet||Not sure|
|Hyaluronic Eye Cream||Nice eye cream, pretty much standard||Maybe*|
|Seaweed Night Cream||Love the fresh feeling and smell at night||Y|
