Every month we report which products are in the top rotation. Our philosophy is simple: just as we change our wardrobe depending on the weather or current mood, we also exchange our skin care accordingly. This month is all about balancing the skin while fighting warm weather issues like excess oil, congestion, and the occasional one or two breakouts.
These are our June Skin Care Basics:
For a fresh glow, we start every day (and end every night) with Enzyme Cleansing Gel. It's a classic cleaning product that we love all year round, but it's the first sign of summer. (In fact, we stow the jumbo version in our shower and the normal size bottle on our bathroom countertop for easy access.)
Here's why we love it:
- Thanks to its oil-free, non-foaming gel formula, it is universal – which means that all skin types feel exceptionally clean, not dry or tight.
- Papaya and grapefruit extract are infused to give the skin a rejuvenating boost when cleaned.
- Excess oil and surface contaminants are rinsed off, leaving the skin bright and refreshed.
We love summer – but for most of us, the skin tends to become more oily and prone to breakouts in warmer weather. To keep the skin clear, we improve our toner game by introducing Special Cucumber Lotion, a clarifying astringent that has been specially developed for oily, restless skin.
(Not prone to acne? Read our toner guide to find the best toner for your skin type.)
Another skin care favorite in June? Cucumber Tonic Mask, the strongest of our cleaning masks. Formulated with kaolin clay, zinc oxide and cucumber extract, this indispensable summer treat helps to remove pore-clogging impurities and to give oily skin a cooling boost.
#MBSkinTip : When you're ready to remove your mask, give your face a generous spray of your favorite Mario Badescu facial spray to simplify the cleaning process. When you're done, spray another moisturizing botanical boost.
We are the last to play favorites with our facial sprays, but if there's a foggy game in the sky in summer, that's it.
It is infused with:
- Aloe Vera to calm the fluid intake
- Cucumber extract and ethereal cucumber water to refresh and cool down
- Peppermint essential water for an invigorating boost
- Green tea extract for the defense against free skin radicals
… this is the perfect pick-me-up on the hottest days. Store brownie points in your fridge or cooler. If the air conditioning doesn't work or the beach is too hot, feel fresh and moist with this good quality botanical bottle. Simply spray, mist and glow.
A.H.A. Botanical body soap is another perennial favorite for which we are particularly grateful in summer. Formulated with a blend of fruit enzymes, ginseng and linden to revitalize the skin with every shower, this daily body wash will leave you feeling thoroughly clean and refreshed.

I take these truths for granted that skin care comes first, green tea is everything and the Internet rules everything (typical abateacnephilosophy; if it was not "programmed" it never happened).
