    Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

    I really this product. The AHA acids in it really smooth out my skin. It smells super fresh but not over powering at all. I use it morning and night.
    I took off one star because I don't like how the dispenser tip gets clogged up.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

      I have combination skin where I'm oily on my t zone and have dry patches around that area. IT BROKE MY FACE OUT IN ACNE after the first use. I might try this again in winter when my skin is drier but the packaging says dry and combination skin; just isn't good. It smells amazing though and affordable so I wish it worked for me. I'm so disappointed.

        This is perfect for fine lines around your mouth. I tend to get dry skin even in the summer and this is perfect because it doesn't make your makeup look cakey or oily. I used pur moisturizer and epoince lotion and this is by far the best of the three.

            This is the best moisturizer I've tried on my aging, large pore, combination skin. I am 41 and have dealt with large pores and uneven textured skin since my early 20s. I live in a desert environment and tend to have dry, patchy skin most of the time but every so often it freaks out and gets super oily. This Buttermilk moisturizer has been a savior. It feels kind of wet and SLIGHTLY greasy on first application but after a few minutes it absorbs completely and my skin is left feeling soft and hydrated without feeling any product at all. This feeling lasts for several hours of the day and I don't ever feel the need to reapply either the moisturizer or the makeup on top. After just a few days use there is vast improvement in my skin texture, pore appearance and coloring. I've spent 3-4 times as much on moisturizers that don't even accomplish a fraction of what this one does.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

                I have very dry, dehydrated skin, not too sensitive with few breakouts. This is my first Mario product and I actually like this moisturizer more than I thought I would. I was looking for a replacement of my Botanicals moisturizer and went with this because they smelled similar. The thing I love most about it is the feel and texture of how it goes on. It actually lasts all day, I usually put it on under my makeup in the morning every day and I don't feel dry by night. It also feels like it absorbs well but isn't greasy at all. I've never had a bad reaction on my skin from it, in fact it leaves my skin really smooth. Its also cute and blue.

                Only thing i don't like is that the lactic acid claims to gently exfoliate but it really doesn't do anything at all. I think partly because there isn't enough of it in the ingredients to actually exfoliate. Im not sure why you would want a moisturizer to exfoliate anyways...

                      A:

                      This claims products are non-pore clogging, and there is no way to guarantee that a product will not clog your pores. The answer is in using a complete product regimen geared toward oily skin types comprised oil free products. That being said, Buttermilk Moisturizer is not oil free.
                      Our Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15 is a great oil free moisturizer to try. http://www.ulta.com/aloe-moisturizer-spf-15?productId=xlsImpprod6200701

                      Hi Dawn - Although the Buttermilk Moisturizer is mildly exfoliating, it will not remove freckles.

                      Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer is recommended for combination/sensitive skin. It will help to smooth, hydrate, and sooth. If your skin tolerates SPF moisturizers, a great oil-free option would be Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15
