Mario Badescu Skincare AHA Botanical Body Soap Review

Initially when I came across Mario Badescu what popped in my head was Super Mario. My brother and I we used to play Mario a lot. We would fight to play video games everyday. And  then the famous question “why did we have to grow up!?” Super Mario’s mission is to save the Princess and Mario Badescu Skincare AHA Botanical Body Soap is to save my skin.

I came by a video of 5 best AHA based body products and Mario Badescu Skincare AHA Botanical Body Soap was one of them. Without any further delay I went to Mecca and grabbed it. 

It is a beautiful translucent amber body soap and it smells fruity (a mixture of grapefruit and papaya, very tropical summery kind of scent). The scent lingers for an hour or so.

I have been using it religiously every single day with my The Body Shop Exfoliating Gloves. It lathers nicely.  A little bit goes a long way. I leave it on for a good 2-3 minutes after lathering. (To me washing it off so quickly is such a waste). I was literally living under a rock to not have noticed this product after all these time I’ve been to Mecca. It has made my skin so soft (like a rose petal), brightened up my skin, reduced the appearance of brown spots and lightened my knees and elbows considerably.
Super Mario combats the dragon to save the Princess and Mario Badescu Skincare AHA Botanical Body Soap annihilated my body acne and scars.



Where to buy:

Mecca for $11.

My Verdict:


You all must be wondering when I used to play Super Mario with my brother who used to be Luigi!? I am the elder so I guess you got t

    I would also really like to get my legs to look decent this summer so thank you for the recommendation. I should also moisturize more, sometimes I am too lazy, but I’m working on it.
