Mario Bedescu Skincare
These are Marta’s latest and favorite Mario Badescu skincare products:
Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, $15: Mario Badescu’s lathering deep cleanser has the exfoliating power of glycolic acid to break down build-up from skin’s surface, reduce minor discoloration and minimize clogged pores which can cause pimples.
Marta says: This cleanser foams really well and is gentle considering it’s glycolic.
Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion
I go with Mario Badescu years ago in New York City. I remember ‘it’ was the it spot to get pampered and get great facials for my co-workers on the trading floor in midtown Manhattan. I even once got a special treat to get a facial done at the Mario Badescu spa in New York City and it was quite a pleasant experience. This is almost 9 years ago my friends!
More recently, I’ve been using the Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion in the evening after I cleanse my face to get my face nicely toned, or sometimes in the mourning before my shower in those days when I think I didn’t get a good face cleansing the night before. This cleansing lotion is gentle even if you keep reapplying with a cotton pad. Formulated with Aloe Vera, Algea Extract, and Witch Hazel which seem like just simple and classic ingredients for your skin. BTW, after a quick trip to the local Scottsdale ULTA here in Arizona I’ve discovered that they carry the Mario Badescu skin care line. Perfect!

Marta Walsh Interviews Patricia Kara from Deal or NO Deal
Couple of months ago, I had an amazing opportunity to interview the beautiful Patrica Kara for Beauty Interviews.
Patricia Kara is an actress, model, and a TV personality best known as Deal or No Deal’s #9. Patricia along with Tameka Jacobs, were the only ones chosen to be on the new Daytime Deal or No Deal with Howie Mandel, which premiered in September 2008. In addition, Patricia has appeared in over 20 television programs, such as, E! Entertainment’s Wild On, Extra, and the Golden Globes.
Read my interview with Patricia Kara where we chat about her love for hosting TV shows, how Deal or No deal revolutionized her career, beauty secrets, her upcoming calendar, and plans for the future.
Why have you decided on a career in hosting and reporting?
I started out with modeling about twenty years ago back in Chicago. That led me to Florida and New York. When I was in New York my modeling agency started to send me out to auditions for hosting and acting. I started booking jobs here and there. One job led to the next job. Then I moved to LA and kept working. And I love it! Anytime I can talk and get paid for it to, is just great. I find my job real easy, it is what I love to do. With hosting I get to try new and different things, depending on what I’m hosting about, and being part of them in a way most people don’t get to do. For example, if I do a show about wake boarding, I’ll try wake boarding. I’ve done a fishing show. I’ve also hosted a lot of sporting events, such as Kentucky Derby.
