You need: Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion


The skincare range that many a major celebrity relies on rely to stay fresh-faced and fabulous is Mario Badescu, and with good reason. Available in New Zealand as part of the beautifully edited collection at Glamorpuss in Auckland's Newmarket, it is based on soothing botanicals, essential vitamin oils and fruit extracts and is full of solutions for all manner of skin freakouts.
The Mario Badescu story began when the Romanian skincare guru opened his now legendary Salon in New York in 1967, bringing his vast knowledge of Old World skin care techniques to an appreciative new audience who just lapped it up. His sophisticated approach to skincare quickly gained him a loyal following and requests for his products for use at home led to the development of the Mario Badescu line of premium products. The range is still based on the ingredients that Mario Badescu originally sourced from his kitchen pantry like milk, honey, almonds, chamomile, and caviar. These natural ingredients are enhanced by advanced technology to create products that work together to gently cleanse, rejuvenate and protect the skin. His salon on Manhattan’s East Side remains the spa of choice for savvy New Yorkers and big names that are passing through town, and it’s definitely on the “must visit” list for beauty heads all over the world.
His skincare collection is seriously vast, but probably his best-known offering is his cult favourite, Drying Lotion (pictured left). Up there with the beauty world’s best selling – and most effective – pimple healers, it is a spot treatment made with a blend of Calamine and Salicylic Acid to clear up and soothe unsightly white-head blemishes overnight. A dab of this lotion will heal and dry pimples while you sleep, and is an essential in any bathroom cabinet because hey, even the most diligent amongst us gets a zit as some time! Suitable for all skin types, a bottle of this magic potion is a steal for just NZD $55.00.
