And it's coming to an Urban Outfitters near you this summer

The new range includes the ‘Complexion Perfection’ kit, the standout product being the overnight drying lotion – dab it on before bed and it will tackle those nasty whiteheads while you sleep. The kit also includes a fast-acting drying cream – perfect for when you have squeezed that spot (when you know you shouldn’t) and need to hide the damage. The final addition is a healing powder, designed to shrink pimples and small bumps, particularly helpful after waxing facial hair.
Nicole Darmanin, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Mario Badescu told Marie Claire ‘We had every woman in mind when we designed this kit – just like you will always keep aspirin in your bag or the medicine cupboard, this is the same – when something pops up it will help perfect your complexion.’
Also in store will be Mario Badescu‘s best-selling facial spray, available in two different formulas – aloe, cucumber and green tea to help nourish and refresh pores, and the aloe herbs and rosewater spray to soothe and encourage clarity in the skin. The revitalising mist is designed for all skin types and ideal for a quick skin refresher after a long day in a dry, air conditioned office.
The new products have been produced in line with the historic ideals of Mario Badescu, the late chemist and founder, who believed that skin care should be simple, gentle and effective. Current Executive Vice President Joseph Cabasso told Marie Claire ‘We’ve never changed anything from what Mario did. We have always been a brand that uses natural ingredients and that’s been the heart of pretty much every product in the line.’
