skilled estheticians, good facials – The space could be more personal, and relaxing but Leah is amazing, great facials, great product line, with great price points, generous sampling and no pushy sales people.

Great Products – I have used a lot of their products, especially the glycolic foaming cleanser, which has worked wonders for my face and skin. They are reasonably priced and well worth every penny. I highly recommend it!

Example: great place for good bread – The room I was in was in the back, next door to a room where I guess the staff hang out. I could hear them chatting the whole time during the facial, thus ruining the relaxing experience I was hoping to have. Someone opened the door and looked in while I was being treated as well.

On the plus side the service was friendly and the price is very reasonable. The facial was fine--nothing amazing.

Awesome – Mario Badescu products are great... affordable, effective and they have products for every skin type, every problem, and every part of your body. The facial was great here. I got a nice neck and shoulder massage as well and my skin was glowing afterwards. The hydrating part of the facial is awesome and leaves your skin feeling moist and supple. I don't think the Vitamin C add-on is really necessary but isn't bad to try atleast once. I highly recommend this place if you need a good thorough and relaxing facial. Make sure to reserve way in advance as appointments fill up quick.

Only place I go – I have had a few facials elsewhere I am not an expert But I have been going there for 30 years no kidding. It really depends who you get. Angie is great but she only works 2 days

worst facial of my life by far – I had the worst facial of my life with Corina a few weeks ago. First of all, I showed up 15 minutes early for a 7 pm appointment. I was called in at about 7:25. I wouldn't even be complaining about that if I'd then been able to enjoy a relaxing and invigorating facial. I was treated to the exact opposite. Corina was extremely rough with my skin, plus it seemed like she was in a major hurry. She pretty much slapped my face around and was very rough during exfoliation. My skin looked red and raw when she was finished and I broke out severely the next day. Pretty much the exact opposite of what I'd had in mind. Honestly it looked like she added years to my face. On top of that, there were several points during the treatment where she left the room for 10-15 minutes (at one point to go start treatment on another client) and left the door open, so I could hear everything down the hall. It was HELL. Nothing about it was relaxing or beneficial to my skin. I would NEVER see her again nor would I ever go back to mario badescu. This woman and this place are horrible. If you care about your skin, DON'T EVER GET A FACIAL WITH CORINA!!!

Best Facialist -- Irina! – I have been going to Badescu for about 10 years and the service and products are wonderful. My skin always looks amazing when I leave there. I ahve been using the same facialist for years and she is the best. I definitely recommend getting a facial here and please ask for Irina. She is warm, funny, friendly and extremely professional. She makes my skin glow!

Fabulous Facial – I have been going to Mario Badescu for the past 10 years for my facials and I highly recommend getting a facial from Marinela. She is wonderful and very knowledgeable about skin type and skin care. I always leave there looking and feeling so much better than when I walk in. She is very gentle and has kept my skin glowing since 1999! The facial plus the exfoliating glycolic peel (total $110) is a great combination. I have tried the Vitamin C mask and recommend that as an extra as well. I also love the products which are very affordable. I use the cleansers and the masks that were recommended to me at my initial consultation. The healing cream is great for breakouts. Every time I have a facial I always get free samples to take home. I can even request the samples that I want. I have read the other reviews on this site and my personal feeling is that I go to Mario Badescu for a good quality facial and not so much for a fancy atmosphere. So if you would like a relaxing and thorough facial, I suggest making an appointment with Marinela.

They only good reviews on citysearch are written by the staff – I had a facial here many years ago and remember all the horrible things that other patrons are reporting. I would like to note that the glowing reviews are written buy screennames that have only written one review. I suspect that that is just Badescu staff trying to do some damage control. I actually like some of their products but their clinic is a upsale driven -1972 decored- rude -tacky european old lady esthetician dump.

not so great – based on a friend's recommendation, i went to get a facial with larissa because i've been struggling to get rid of my blackheads on my forehead. she was nice enough, but i definitely felt like i didn't get that much service but got suckered into paying extra for a glycolic peel when i didn't really need it. why don't they tell you it costs extra? it's definitely not a relaxing environment. the door was kept open and i could heard everyone talking. the next morning, my forehead broke out. it's probably due to excessive squeezing or the wounds weren't cleaned properly. needless to say, i will not be going back.
