Pros

  • Moisturizes Well
  • Smells Great

Cons

  • Breaks your face out
  • Too Greasy Or Heavy

Best Uses

  • Dryness

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.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

    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.

      I love this moisturizer - its so smooth and mousse-like. It doesn't have SPF in it, but I apply that via other means.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

        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...

                Love this product. Was using the oil control and found it didn't reduce shine. Randomly picked the buttermilk moisturizer the other day and it's MUCH better. I'm so happy with it.

                    Unused this product along with the cleanser, toner then I use the moisturizer and it is great for dry skin. My skin has always been dry, with these 3 products my skin hasn't been dry one day since using them.

                        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
