Drew Barrymore has always been a woman of the people when it comes to her love of budget beauty buys. She even launched her own super affordable makeup line Flower Beauty, with prices ranging from £6-£17.
But if you were thinking that Drew probably uses ultra-expensive skincare buys on herself, you’d be mistaken. In fact, Drew credits her 'visibly reduced pore size' to a £16 Mario Badescu face mask.
Drew spoke about her new discovery on the Drew Barrymore Show, saying that it ‘literally blew her away,’ it was that good.
‘One of the reasons I loved it is I have visible pores,’ Drew explained to viewers. ‘This has got sulphur and zinc oxide and it gets to work on that surface.
It pulls impurities from your skin, and it's got calamine and cucumber, so it feels very soothing. But I'm telling you: My pores were visibly gone.’
She's not wrong either. The combination of sulphur and zinc oxide is a sure-fire winner when it comes to zapping excess oil. While it's not *actually* possible to shrink the size of pores (sorry), pore size can appear smaller when they're thoroughly cleansed.
Celebs love the rest of the Mario Badescu range, too. The cult skincare brand has a whole host of fans with Kylie Jenner, Ashley Graham and Heidi Klum who have all waxed lyrical about the insta-famous Mario Badescu Spot Drying Lotion in the past.
Ashley Graham previously told ELLE, 'I use a little Mario Badescu for the blemishes. If you don't know about Mario, you know now. It just dries your zits.'
