Mario Badescu: Special Cucumber Lotion

*note: this looks worse in the photo than it really does. In real life, it looks like urine. In the photo, it looks like the urine of a dying person!

Mario’s Special Cucumber Lotion was supposed to be great. Supposed to be.

What they say: Refreshing, disinfecting and deep cleaning astringent that is effective in drying up existing acne blemishes while preventing new eruptions. Sulfur and soothing Cucumber based, acne fighting formula that is non-drying and non-irritating.” (for combination or oily skin)

At first sight: As mentioned: it looks like pee. Also, it’s a yellow liquid, and though it’s “lotion”, it’s actually a toner. And it smells funny. Like a decaying baby. See my hopes? They’re all dead now.

At first use: The weird smell seems to be stronger on my face, and you can smell a touch of alcohol as well. This didn’t do anything remarkable; I don’t have very oily skin to begin with, and my skin and I get along pretty damn well. So, um, aside from smelling funny, this didn’t do jack.

The verdict: zzz. One more boring product with a strange scent that doesn’t live up to it’s claims.

    LOL I'm thinking they give out all the left overs people don't buy as samples. Like products that are the rejects and suck major ass like this one and plus.

    You have created some very colorful images for your readers. My favorite has to be "the urine of a dying person." It has a really nice ring to it! :)
