Acne Starter Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for travelling Perfect for travelling or if you just want to try the products out before buying the full size. They're refillable as well so you can still use them once you run out of product. Really reasonable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great kit but... A great kit to initiate a skincare routine for those struggling with acne. The cleanser basically transformed my skin and have somehow managed to magically reduce the amount of breakouts I have (I'm on my second, larger bottle of this now). The cucumber lotion is pointless, is difficult to apply, and doesn't really do anything to the same effect as other toners do (sorry Mario). The moisturiser is amazing because it's oil free, doesn't leave any shine, is dry touch after absorbing AND has SPF! It's a perfect base for make up. The drying cream is ok... dries out pimples when you apply the night before but only offers a temporary solution to the pimple. Once it wears off, the pimple comes back in all its gross glory. I feel the same way about the drying mask too. Overall, good value but better off buying the products separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed my skin! Love it. This cleared up my skin and has reduced the oiliness that used to build up during the day. I've now completely changed my skin care routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Great selection of products and they work great together I really liked the moisturizer with SPF it’s so light and absorb quickly into the skin with no stickiness

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Harsh I purchased this product when I did not understand how the skin functions, and now I can see that this kit destroyed my moisture barrier. Just because I have oily skin, it still needs to stay hydrated!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is ok One of my friend tried and liked it but I didn't find it suitable for sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mario Badescu - I love you! From the day I turned 11, I have always struggled with acne. Now, at 22 years old, it's clear my acne isn't just a 'puberty' thing, but clearly my skin is more oily / sensitive / prone to breakouts. Yes, I will admit I wasn't the most religious skin care fanatic, I didn't even use toners / exfoliants etc until last year. I tried different products, some helped, some didn't. After seeing this pack online, I figured why not, for $44, whats the worst that can happen. After using this pack, I've noticed a massive change in my face. My face isn't as red, I do have breakouts but not as often, and if I do, it's only that time of month and not as bad as normal. I tried swapping toners / moisturisers etc (throughout the Mario Badescu range) and noticed that this combination was the best on my skin. Obviously every person has different skin, but I highly recommend at least trying this. Also, a little bit goes a long way!

Can someone please explain to me how to use the products? Like do I use one thing at a time until acne is gone then move into the next one? It doesn’t explain it very well. Thanks 

Asked by: Jaymeelee
Please follow these instructions: Acne Facial Cleanser: Twice daily, gently massage on face in circular motions, avoiding eye area. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry. Special Cucumber Lotion: Morning and evening after cleansing, apply to face with a cotton ball or pad, wiping in an outward direction. Avoid contact with eyes. Oil Free Moisturiser: After cleansing and toning, apply before sun exposure and daily all over face, avoiding eye area. May be used under make-up or alone. Drying Mask: Apply a thin layer on clean skin avoiding eye area. Wait 20 minutes and rinse with tepid water. May be used 2-3 times a week all over face or on problem areas only including back and chest. Drying Cream: Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturiser, before make-up.

I have a lot of pimples on my fore head, nose and chin I also have very oily skin. I have a skin care routine but it doesn’t seem to be helping my pimples at all. I’m not sure whether I should buy this kit or the anti-acne serum what would be better?

I have combination skin, though it is dehydrated, would this be good to use on my skin? I don't want to strip my skin

Asked by: N S C
I can't really speak from personal experience, because I have extremely oily skin and acne - but the Regimen kit by Mario Badescu might be better suited for combination skin because it claims to "nourish your skin while controlling oil". As this Acne Starter kit appears to be targeted towards oily acne prone skin which aims to reduce oil, it might dry out the parts of your skin which aren't producing excess amounts of oil.
