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

    I just started using this moisturizer two days ago, and all I can say is, wow! I've been using Mario Badescu products for about a year and a half, and up until a couple of days ago, I was using the Collagen Moisturizer. While the collagen moisturizer did great things for my skin and solved a lot of problems, I found that I was dealing with excess oil, even this time of year. My skin can get dry/sensitive in the winter, so I decided to try the A.H.A & Ceramide Moisturizer based on its reviews. I'm so glad I did! I only have to use a little bit more than a pea-size worth, and it soaks in almost immediately. It is a WONDERFUL base for Bareminerals foundation, and I'm finding that it holds much better during the course of the day. My skin already looks brighter and less dull, so I'm excited to see if it helps with some hyperpigmentation. The one thing I wish it had was SPF for sun protection, but I'll probably just switch to the Aloe Moisturizer during the summer months since it had very similar effects on my skin.

              • 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.
