Mario Badescu in Toronto

I have finally found the coveted Mario Badescu products in Canada - Toronto to be exact :) This line of skincare is raved about in the Youtube/Beauty Blogger circle, and to my knowledge it was always sold in the US - at Ulta etc. I was at the distillery district a few weeks ago, walked into Jacob & Sebastian and at the back right of the store, stood a wall of Mario B products - *heavens part* and I ran to it ( no joke). For those of you who are not familiar with Mario B products, please read the blurb below that I've included which is directly from their website.

"The Mario Badescu name has been known for personalized, all-natural skin care treatments and products for more than 35 years. Growing from a small facility into a 36 room salon and day spa, we have always been one of the most trusted and respected names in the industry. Our clientele not only is made up of many actors, supermodels and showpeople, but thousands of men and women who realize the importance of good skin care." -

The two products I decided to get (and also because I was out of at home) was:
1. Seaweed Cleansing Soap - mild and gently exfoliating
2. Seaweed Cleansing Lotion - non drying, non alcohol toner
Coming into the fall and colder season, I recommend all of you beauties to reassess your skincare products. Using a non-alcohol toner will mean that you won't dry out your skin and having a cream-based cleanser will assist with maintaining the moisture in your skin. Some of you may think it is excessive, but I have a skincare regiment for the colder seasons (fall/winter and beginning of spring) and another for the warmer months/season, due to my oily combo skin - I will be doing an indepth skin tutorial/post soon!

Until next time - XO, M.


  1. Yay! Jacob and Sebastian is one of my favourite stores in the city! They also have a shop at Queen and Bathurst, which I've been visiting religiously for the past couple of years. The MB Enzyme Cleansing Gel and Seaweed Cleansing Lotion are huge faves of mine :)


    1. Great minds think alike! I wanted to try the michael todd blue algae but now that i found this I'll put that on the back burner :)
