Mario Badescu Facial Sprays Reviews: Are They Worth It & Which One’s Best?

**Updated 2020: Comparing the 3 Mario Badescu facial sprays and finding which ones are best for which skin concerns, such as acne.**

The entire internet seems to have gone gaga over Mario Badescu facial sprays – so today we’re going to be reviewing them and finding out if they’re worth the hype. You guys already know about my love affair with the Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit, now we’re going to see if the rest of their products live up to my lofty expectations!

Before we even get into the in-depth review, let me just spoil it by saying: these products are amazing. They’re a handbag essential for me – perfect for refreshing my makeup throughout the day. They also keep my skin nice and hydrated, but more importantly they help me avoid acne in summer by preventing my skin getting too oily.

Beauty Bay currently has an amazing value bundle set for sale. (Which is what inspired this post.) Run and buy before they all sell out!

But let’s look at them more in-depth . . .

What Are Mario Badescu Facial Sprays? And Why Is The Internet So Obsessed?

Mario Badescu facial sprays are nourishing face mists that you can use on skin as a toner, makeup setter or just a little radiance boost throughout the day.

They come packed with ingredients that are soothing and highly beneficial for your skin. (Like my beloved Aloe Vera; if you guys have read my Essential Products For Oily Acne-Prone skin, you will know your girl loves her some aloe vera.) It’s a good way to top up on some nutrients as your skin suffers through pollution, sun, air conditioning etc. during your day.

Personally, I love to use the Mario Badescu Facial Sprays in summer – they keep my skin nice and hydrated, as well as refreshing it when it starts to feel sweaty and disgusting. I used the rosewater spray last year (rebought it twice, not including this time!) and it really helped to keep my skin clear.

BIG BENEFIT: ALL SPRAYS ARE CRUELTY FREE AND PARABEN FREE.

There are three different sprays currently:

  • Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Green Tea Spray – Beauty Bay Exclusive
  • Aloe Vera, Herbs and Rosewater Spray
  • Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Lavender Spray – Beauty Bay Exclusive

I will be honest here and say that Mario Badescu is probably my all time favourite skincare brand; they’re effective, but not too harsh and they have visible results.

Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Green Tea Spray Review – BEAUTY BAY EXCLUSIVE

The first spray is tied for my favourite. It’s the least perfumed of the three (which is a good thing for my skin) – and the ingredients are all soothing and refreshing, so this is absolutely perfect for spritzing throughout hot days. Not entirely sure what to say other than it does the job and it does it well!

Beauty Bay Description:

Exclusive to Beauty Bay, Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea cools and refreshes. Perfect for waking up dull, tired skin, mist over the face before moisturising or throughout the day after makeup, for a quick antioxidant boost.

  • Aloe Vera – Calms and soothes skin.
  • Cucumber – Leaves skin glowing and hydrated.
  • Green Tea – A natural antioxidant.

Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Green Tea Facial Spray – $7

Aloe Vera, Herbs and Rosewater Spray Review

This spray is also tied for my favourite, partially because I’ve been using it for so long and it still holds up – and partially because rose water is so beneficial for your skin. I used this throughout all of last summer and it helped me keep my skin’s oiliness under control, which kept my spots at bay!

Beauty Bay Description:

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs & Rosewater is a refreshing, hydrating mist for all skin types. Created with a blend of fragrant herbal extracts and rosewater, it lightly refreshes skin whilst boosting hydration and relieving dehydrated, tight complexions. Mist it over your moisturiser for a hydration boost or use it to set makeup. It can even be used on dry hair as a light moisturising mist.

Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Lavender Spray Review – BEAUTY BAY EXCLUSIVE

On first instinct, this spray was my least favourite (although not bad by any means) purely because it’s very perfumed and, while I like the smell, I tend to avoid perfumed skincare products as they can break me out. It hasn’t broken me out at all yet . . . but it’s still a concern. The other sprays are perfumed slightly, but the scent didn’t feel quite as heavy.

Now, I say on first instinct because three sprays, in all honesty, feel very similar so the smell was the main thing that discerned them for me pre-research.

However, on further research, I think the Chamomile Mario Badescu facial spray actually has the most benefits. It contains Vitamin C – which the others don’t – and combats against skin-aging and free radicals. So I’m definitely going to be reaching for it more often!

Beauty Bay Description:

A refreshing face spray.

Calming and comforting the complexion, Facial Spray With Aloe, Chamomile And Lavender is a Vitamin C infused mist suitable for all skin types. Light and delicately fragranced, spritz over moisturiser, makeup or bare skin throughout the day for an instant hydration boost.

Chamomile and Lavender Spray – $7

Conclusion: Mario Badescu Facial Sprays – Yay Or Nay?

All in all, I absolutely love the Mario Badescu facial sprays. I think they’re a total handbag essential for summer – for both oily and dry skin. If your skin is dry, these give you a nice moisture boost. And if you’re skin is oily, they’re cooling and refreshing.

Again, if you want to pick these up, I highly recommend you buy the Beauty Bay set of 3. It’s really good value for money and two of the sprays are Beauty Bay exclusives anyways!

    I actually didn’t know they had purple spray, I’m so used to see rose and cucumber water ones. I would love to try them definitely, they are probably the most hyped facial sprays together with Mac fix plus. Thank you for this post dear. xx

    1. crystalsandcurls – I'm going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, I'll tell you about myself when I figure out if I'm real or not.

      Neither did I until I saw this boxset! It’s not my favourite, but the ingredients are fab 🙂 xx

    I don’t usually prefer scented products for my face either but man, these all sound so very delicious! & yes!! Your photos are so pretty. I love the flowers in the background. ♡

    1. crystalsandcurls – I'm going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, I'll tell you about myself when I figure out if I'm real or not.

      In all honesty, aside from the purple one the scent is barely there – it’s just that one where I was like “woah, I can really smell this”. And thank you lovely! <3

  3. Love Mario Badescu, I got them as a gift once, but never got to repurchase it. They HAVE to be the most hyped skincare products in the beauty-sphere, and I can see why too! Great pictures, I love the colours , they go so well together <3 x

    1. crystalsandcurls – I'm going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, I'll tell you about myself when I figure out if I'm real or not.

    I just picked up another one of these over the weekend. I went with the Lavender & Chamomille one, though I wish I had stuck with the cucumber & Aloe one. Oh well, it works just as well and will come in handy during these hot, southern summers! Thanks for sharing! xo

    1. crystalsandcurls – I'm going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, I'll tell you about myself when I figure out if I'm real or not.

    I also love these sprays!! After hearing the internet practically rave about it for months on end, I finally decided to go out and buy the rose one at Urban Outfitters. I wasn’t expecting much but I understand now why everyone’s so obsessed! It always leaves my face feeling so refreshed. Not to mention, it smells amazing!

    1. crystalsandcurls – I'm going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, I'll tell you about myself when I figure out if I'm real or not.

      Girl, that was literally me last year and it was an instant “oh yes, yes i see why the internet is obsessed now” x

  12. Arundhati Basu – New Jersey, US – The great affair in my life is to travel. I count myself immensely fortunate that my partner shares this passion. We are a team that likes to spend time planning and plotting out places to go. Destination check, flights check, accommodation check, cheesy grins check. Off we go.

    I shall have to get one of these sprays it seems. For the humid days be inching closer and I am shuddering at the thought of the red devils that shall pop up on my face. Thanks lovely! xx

    I love the concept. It is super hot and super dry here in the American West [Arizona]. I have used L’Occitane version with Organic Angelica water (from whence angels bathe) and essential oils and find it oooohhh so refreshing on a hot day. Will must give these a try.
