    I have combo skin. This moisturizer is too thin for the rest of my face but just right for my t zone. It did help my skin glow and clear dark spots

        I love this product for daily moisturizing! It goes on very smoothly, absorbs quickly without any heaviness or greasiness and it has minimal to no smell. I can't speak to the AHA and ceramide benefits because I don't see any visible difference from them, however, that doesn't mean it doesn't work.

        Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer:

        I love love Mario Badescu products and currently have multiple products, but I had to return this item. I have oily skin and even though this state is for oily combination skin, I tried it at night and daytime use and felt it was a bit heavy and I would wake up oilier. Wanted to like it but it was too much for me. I'm still in search for my perfect moisturizer.

            It broke me out badly. So I gave it to my husband because he has way less sensitive skin and can use whatever but it broke him out too. Waste of money and whole bunch of pimples. I will stick with my Paula's choice products from now on.

              Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer:

              I absolutely love this face lotion. I have combination skin and find that most night creams are a little bit heavy for me, so I started using this (along with a ton of other MB products because they are amazing!) every night and it has done wonders for my skin. I wake up in the morning absolutely glowing! And since I've started using the MB line, I've been getting complements on how good my skin looks sans make-up. I will warn though, I did have some purging when I first started this. I'm assuming it's because I've never used an AHA product before this. It wasn't terrible though and was definitely worth it! For reference, I use the Enzyme Cleansing Gel in the morning & night, followed by the Aloe Vera Toner each time I wash. In the mornings, I use the Aloe Moisturizer and this at night.

                How do I incorporate this product in with the seaweed night cream? I have oily / acne prone skin with the acne mostly under control thanks to your acne regimen. I'm 45 years old.

                  A:

                  Our A.H.A & Ceramide Moisturizer can be used at night in place of your night cream to help brighten discoloration and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You would not need to use this product in conjunction with the Seaweed Night Cream (either one or the other at night). If you are looking for a product that will help target discoloration our Vitamin C Serum can be used. http://www.ulta.com/vitamin-c-serum?productId=xlsImpprod6200689

              • Q:

                Which MB moisturizer would be best suited for my skin? Late 20s with skin that becomes dry due to retin-a use and once a week glycolic peels. I also have melasma due to sun damage, congested pores, and fine lines. It would have to serve as a base for my liquid foundation as well.

                  A:

                  The A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer features lemon fruit extract which contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids to help smooth and rejuvenate dull skin. The glycolipids listed in the ingredient section are the ceramides. The ingredient section often lists ingredients in more scientific terms than we commonly use to describe them.

                  Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer is not an oil-free product so it would not be recommended for use by someone with acne prone skin.

                  A:

                  Typically we would suggest using a moisturizer with sun protection (SPF) during the day to protect against sun damage. However, if you do not require a moisturizer with SPF, then you may choose to use the A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer during the day, as well as, at night. After cleansing and toning, you may apply this all over face (avoiding eye area) twice a day.
