To sum up my Mario Badescu series (I hope those links work!), I just wanted to do a quick review of the company itself. While I love the concept of free samples, I can’t understand why anyone uses their products – they were all disappointing in one way or another. I mean, I got sent a sample that looks so old and gross that it could probably be carbon dated. To back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
So, all in all, Badescu was a bomb. The bad kind of bomb, with products that are either boring, useless, or just generally suck. I really, really wanted to love them…but it’s just not going to happen.
The verdict? Don’t waste your money. But hell, if the samples are free, why not, right? Maybe you’ll find a gem.
