Mario Badescu – 50th Anniversary Edition Set

Hey Guys,

This is my first beauty related blog post and I’m exccccited 😀 .

I have to admit that in the past, I didn’t use to give much importance to facial cleansing products. I just used whatever seemed to remove my makeup. However this all changed when blemishes started to appear on my face. My T-Zone was also getting more oily than usual, and I wasn’t happy about that.

So I started looking for products which were good and effective in order to take my skin care routine more seriously. That is when I came across this Mario Badescu Anniversary Set on Beauty Bay. I was quite impressed with its positive reviews and it also included many skin care essentials and so I thought I should give them a try.

This set costs €39.60 (5 Items in all), which is a really fair price , especially when knowing that one product alone costs around €20.


The 5 items which are included in the set are –

  1. Drying Lotion (1 fl oz) – An award-winning spot and whitehead treatment.

  2. Silver Powder (0.5 oz) – A blackhead remover.

  3. Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater (4 fl oz) – A hydrating and refreshing facial spray.

  4. Flower & Tonic Mask (0.5 oz) – A purifying face mask.

  5. Enzyme Cleansing Gel (4 fl oz) – An exfoliating face wash.


Drying Lotion (MUST HAVE !)

This is my favourite product from the whole set. It works wonders and I promise, I’m not exaggerating. It contains calamine and salicylic acid which can soothe breakouts overnight. Out of all the items, I use this product the most. I apply it directly to any blemishes using a q-tip before I go the sleep. It has worked so well for me these last few weeks (having whiteheads and waking up in the morning with them all dried up) and I noticed a remarkable difference in my skin.

Silver Powder


The silver powder is described as being an effective treatment for stubborn blackheads. To apply, you dip in a wet cotton pad and mix it with the powder to form a paste on the targeted area. Compared to the others, I didn’t like this product a lot because of two main reasons. First of all, I didn’t notice a difference in the blackheads on my nose and secondly it got a bit messy as there was a lot of powder fallout from the cotton pad.

Facial Spray


This spray contains –

  • Aloe Vera – Calms and soothes skin.
  • Cucumber – Leaves skin glowing and hydrated.
  • Green Tea – A natural antioxidant.

I just love the scent of this facial spray, it smells amazing! I also love how refreshing and hydrating it is.

I use this product before and after I do my makeup. I also carry it in my bag wherever I go , so I can refresh whenever I feel like. The smell is also so satisfying, especially if you love anything which smells good, like me haha.

Flower & Tonic Mask


I liked how the mask made my face feel super soft and clean. After a few minutes of applying it , it really felt like it was doing its job due to the fact that it dried down fully and tightened.

P.S It also has a soothing scent.

Cleansing Gel


This cleansing gel also passed the test for me. It’s non-foaming and thoroughly removes dirt, oil and makeup easily. I really like this cleanser, it’s really soft on the skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean.


In conclusion I can say that I’m really pleased with these products and I would highly recommend them. Each product left my skin feeling healthier than it did before.

If you have any questions regarding these products , do not hesitate to send a message here , or on my facebook page , I’ll be glad to help.

Hope that this was helpful,

Until the next one ,
