We’re all talking about… THE MECCA PRODUCT SOLD EVERY 20 SECONDS

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater: the name is long and the hype is real. We know what you’re thinking: ‘it’s just a spray, isn’t it?’ Well, yes—but it’s not just any spray. A bottle of this pleasant little pick-me-up sells every 20 seconds around the world, Kylie Jenner professed her love for it on Snapchat and at MECCA we sell around 6,000 bottles a month. Yep, it’s kind of a big deal.

Born in the ‘80s, this spray is one of the signature products from the simple and effective US-born skin-care brand. So, what does this $9 spray actually do? And why all the hype? Basically, it’s super-charged hydration in a bottle. Think of a time when your skin’s desperate for a drink, perhaps when 3pm rolls around and you take a look in the bathroom mirror, only to find your skin looks lacklustre, feels tight, maybe a lil’ dry and flaky. We’ve all been there and, yes, we agree the office air conditioner is your complexion’s worst enemy. Do not fear—this is where the Mario Badescu spray comes into its own. Just a few spritzes of this all over your face and you can say hello to that juicy glow you lost over the course of the day. Think of it as a big glass of water for your skin—a pleasantly-scented, hard-working glass of water. Speaking of scents, this baby is packed with delicious fragrant extracts; in addition to rosewater and aloe, it contains gardenia and thyme which all work together in harmony to give your complexion a big, bright boost of hydration.

And it has loads of other uses aside from the 3pm pick-me-up. You can spritz some over your face before regular skin-care treatments to help them absorb more effectively, you can mist it on your skin if it’s seen a little too much sun (the aloe will soothe irritated or inflamed skin), or you can do as the MECCA HQ girls do: mix your liquid highlighter in with it and prepare to glow all over like the goddess you are.
