As someone who is obsessed with skin care, I’m always open to trying new products. I’m usually not one to believe the hype behind products until I test them out myself. When it comes to skincare, I try not to listen to too many opinions since everyone’s skin is different. I have very sensitive, very dry, acne-prone skin. So when I heard people with all different skin types talking about how Mario Badescu facial sprays changed their lives.. of course, I had to see if it’d change mine too. I mean come on, are they THAT good?

Well to answer my own question, YES. THEY ARE THAT GOOD. Seriously, once I received these in the mail I immediately tested them out. I was shocked by how quickly I fell in love with these! Let’s start out with the rosewater since I’ve obviously purchased two large bottles. The scent is absolutely amazing, definitely smells like roses but it’s not too overwhelming. As someone who has very sensitive skin, sometimes scents can cause my skin to freak out. This did the complete opposite (thankfully). It soothed my irritated dry skin and left it feeling super hydrated.

And now on to the cucumber.. the one I wasn’t too sure about. Usually, I’m not a fan of cucumber scents because of how artificial they are, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It turns out that I love this more than the rosewater! The scent is fresh, the combination of cucumber, aloe, and green tea meshes perfectly, and the feeling it leaves on your skin is something I can’t explain. It just makes your skin feel GOOD.

I absolutely love these facial sprays and I’m already planning on purchasing more. I just found out there’s also a lavender spray.. um, what?! Count me in, thank you! These truly transformed the texture and appearance of my skin overnight and it’s very rare that I can say that about a skin care product. They’re perfect to use before you apply your moisturizer, a great way to prep your skin before you apply makeup, or even to set your makeup! I find myself using them throughout the day just to keep my skin feeling hydrated.

I cannot wait to purchase more from Mario Badescu and discover new favorites. The quality is outstanding, and what makes it even better is the low prices! I highly recommend these no matter what skin type you are, but especially those with dry skin. I’d love to hear your opinions! Have you ever tried? Do you have a favorite? Do you think they’re worth the hype they receive? Leave a comment below or on my latest Instagram post! I will list links to where you can purchase, different size options, and pricing.

    1. It’s great before makeup as an extra hydration step, I spray it on before my moisturizer! As for primer, it all depends on your skin type. If you’d like to fill your pores and smooth your skin, I ALWAYS recommend Benefit’s POREfessional Primer. If you have oily skin, try a more mattefying primer like Becca’s Ever-Matte primer. As for dry skin, I absolutely love Too Faced’s Hangover RX Primer! There’s so many to try, it just all depends on what your skin needs!


  1. I feel the same way about the rose variant! I just can’t stop spritzing my face with and I’ve been burning through bottles of this like crazy! I’m not one for cucumber scents either but your review is making me want to get it and give it a try as well!
