I'm not sure I've ever done this on the ol' blog here or not. I've finally come to terms with the fact that I have melasma on pretty much most of my face [blessing b/c less noticeable since it's EVERYWHERE. curse- b/c it sucks having spots on your face]. I've also come to terms with the fact that the wrinkles are coming, and the frown lines on my forehead have already made their appearance.

But mostly, I think I'm okay with going bare faced due to the skin care line I've been using. To be honest, I've used all kinds of stuff: cosmedicine, oil of olay, boscia, murad, chanel, l'oreal, etc. The line I've used for awhile most recently was Boscia. I liked it, but I feel it wasn't anything super special. 

In one of the groups I'm in on facebook, a fellow Lilly lover asked for skin care recommendations. She had combo/oily skin like me. Of course, I recommended Boscia because it was the best thing I'd tried so far. A lot of the girls were posting and commenting suggesting Mario Badescu. I kept seeing that name over and over. Mario Badescu. 

I decided that since I kept seeing that name and it's pretty cheap that maybe I should give it a try. The products cost less than Boscia, and I hadn't actually tried MB's line yet...

I am SO glad for that post. My skin looks amazing. It's so smooth and soft, and I haven't had a problem with blemishes. btw, whoever told me that my acne would be gone by the time I was in my 30s LIED. To be completely honest, I guess I don't have "acne" anymore, but I do get breakouts and blemishes still. Mostly hormonal I think. MB doesn't cure the oiliness. I don't think anything will the cure the oiliness, but it helps me look younger than my age. No complaining there! I'm extremely happy and just wanted to pass along the love to my oily/combo face readers:)

This is what I purchased from Ulta. I was in the "I want it now" mode, and Ulta is the only local store in my city that carries the MB line. I'm pretty sure you can get from Nordstrom's and other stores of the like. I decided to try The Regimen Kit first to see if I liked it. I've already used up the Seaweed Night Cream sample [it's very small].  I purchased the full size version of the night cream just the other day because I like it so much! I would start with this kit to see if you like it.

You may already know this, but if you fill out the skincare questionnaire on the MD website you will get a customized profile and several product recommendations. As long as you include your personal information, you should be sent an email in 1-2 days offering you some product samples that match your profile. That's how I found the drying cream and I absolutely love it for spot treatment.

I'm glad you found something that you like. Thirty-ish is a weird time for skin.
