Mario Badescu Facial Sprays Review

My skin:

  • Not exactly young anymore…let’s say I’ve hit my third decade. Just kidding, I’m 30 and proud. I have absolutely noticed a change in my skin over the past few years. It’s dryer and more prone to dullness
  • Used to have adult acne from aged 21 to 24-ish (some remaining acne scars but mostly all faded by now)
  • Prone to a little oiliness on the nose (nothing extreme)
  • Prone to dull, dry patches around the cheeks
  • Blackheads on the nose at times
  • Not overly sensitive but can be irritated by strong fragrances

How do I use the Mario Badescu Facial Sprays?

Casual morning: after my cleanser and light moisturizer, I spray a generous spritz of my green Mario Badescu Facial Spray all over my face (about 6 sprays). I let it dry, then massage my BB cream (drugstore Garnier!) into my skin with my fingers. Dull patches are brightened, dryness is hydrated, and everything glows

During the day: I am perpetually tired and I have to take daytime naps sometimes. While my naps do help me get through the day, they make me look pretty puffy and sleepy. I spray the green (Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea) onto my face after my nap and I look and feel instantly fresher

Going out: after my moisturizer, I spray an extra generous dose of the rose spray all over my face before I start my makeup. I let it dry, then carry on as usual. For reference, I personally find this spray to be glowier than Mac Fix Plus. If it’s a casual night out, I’ll use the rose spray as a setting spray, otherwise, I go in with the big guns, Urban Decay All Nighter

Before bed: after my evening skincare routine, I sink into bed, grab my rose Mario Badescu Facial Spray and give the face a generous spritz. I like either the rose or lavender one before bed, but at the moment, it’s a rose phase. I wake up in the morning with noticeably, softer, glowier, more vibrant skin than when I skip this step (which is rare!).

What are the pros and cons?

  • Affordable
  • Hydrate my skin without making it feel greasy but gives me a visible glow
  • Makes my makeup apply beautifully
  • Doesn’t irritate my skin
  • Refreshing during the day and relaxing at night (they smell delish!)
  • The spray is great! Not too misty, not too heavy

I honestly can’t think of any setbacks. However, if you’re looking for an ultra-glowy spray or a long-wear makeup spray, keep looking. These give the skin a natural dewy appearance as opposed to a highlight-like sheen or shimmer. They won’t make your makeup last longer (not in my experience), but they will make it meld and fuse with the skin for a more blended result.

Note: some people are sensitive to lavender in skincare products, so veer toward the green tea or rose variety if you suspect your skin is opposed to lavender.

Do I recommend them?

You can tell by now…yes.

The smaller bottles are so affordable, there’s not a lot to lose by picking one up to see for yourself. If I were to recommend just one, I’d go for the rose. It smells delicious and I find it to be the most nourishing and hydrating of the three.

Have you tried the Mario Badescu facial sprays? Let us know what you think of them!

So this post is going to be a mini rant/reason as to why I had to completely get rid of my Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you would know that I’m a huge fan of Mario Badescu products. But sadly, I did find an issue with the rosewater spray that almost everyone seems to continuously rave about.

Recently, I’ve been on a skin cleansing journey, where I take my time to properly take good care of my skin to prevent acne and blemishes. During this time, I would go through all my skincare products to figure out what works best and get rid of what doesn’t. While doing this, I stumbled upon my Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray, and just felt completely heartbroken.

I had tried for months to like this product, simply because I love how it soaks in my makeup and gives it a more natural look. But the side effects this spray gives, is really where the issue is for me.


For the longest time during my skincare journey, I’ve always been looking for the culprit for my acne. I had thrown out so many other products thinking that such were responsible for causing my breakouts, but little did I know that this Mario Badescu Rosewater spray was what was causing the damage.

How did I figure this out?

Well, a few weeks back, I decided to completely cut off makeup application for a short period of time, just to give my skin a bit more time to breathe. During this period, I went about my regular skin care routine but made sure that I wasn’t leaving on any products on my skin for a long period of time. I relied solely on facial sprays and skipped moisturizing overall, as my skin wasn’t really in need of the extra moisture.

Then the horror happened…

I woke up one morning to a ton of breakouts on my skin, wondering how the heck it happened, especially since I was following my trusted skincare routine.

There had to be something that was causing it…

So as usual, I ignored the facial spray and started checking the water system of my apartment, and just a ton of other irrelevant things that weren’t responsible for my breakouts.

Because of all the positive reviews about the Mario Badescu Rosewater spray, I had automatically convinced myself to like the product, without thinking twice about its effectiveness.

So during the search for my acne culprit, I decided to just give up everything, including the facial sprays. I would just wash with a regular cleanser and go straight to bed. I have more of a normal to combination skin type, so getting dry wasn’t anything to worry about.

This time around I noticed a difference…

I had no breakouts whatsoever. My skin legit felt like a baby’s ass.

I should have continued with the same routine, but I was very silly and decided to hop back to using my Mario Badescu facial spray.

And you probably guessed it…

My crazy acne came back again!

So obviously, I had to completely throw it out. And since then, I haven’t had any issues.

Other recommendations to the Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray…

Although I didn’t want to completely ditch the brand, I decided to head to Ulta a couple weeks back and purchase a completely different facial spray from them. This time around, I picked up the Mario Badescu facial spray with Aleo, Cucumber, and Green tea.

This spray is literally AMAZING, and it doesn’t break me out whatsoever. I’m happy that I didn’t completely ignore their products, and decided to try something different.

I would definitely recommend this spray if you want to pick up something from this brand.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of the products I mentioned…

Till next time,
