Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

I was recommended this product by a Ulta skin care specialist and for oily combo skin. It doesn't make my skin feel moisturized at all! It has a sticky feeling after application and doesn't help with my oily face at all

I'm liking it

By rayjmorgan

Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

I'm not getting the sticky feeling that other commenters are talking about. I actually feel fresh and soft and I mean I practically drip oil in my t-zone but I'm dry on my cheeks and this stuff has made my skin even texured and well balanced. I should note that I shake it before each use for possible separation. It's pretty good and I have no breakouts from it either which is a rarity for me.

Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

After if dries your face feels matte...it maybe extended my makeup for an hour or two before the oilyness peaked through. I have very oily skin so it is inevitable for oil too come through.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

            As far as my beauty routine goes, I have found the perfect product for everything with the exception of a good moisturizer. I was previously using Clinique's moisturizing gel, but I found it left me with the same combination skin problems I've always had-- dry around the eyes and greasy in the t-zone. I've only been using this product for about a week now and maybe that's not long enough to say, but I think my face is actually greasier with this lotion. I don't like how it goes on and I don't think it smells very good either. I'll give it a few more weeks because I do love Mario Badescu products, but if you're like me and find yourself blotting your forehead with post-it notes at your desk throughout the day... this won't change things.

                A:

                Yes, you can. You can apply the mask after cleansing, wait 15-20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with a toner and a moisturizer, such as Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin. A great toner option is our Special Cucumber Lotion. http://www.ulta.com/special-cucumber-lotion?productId=xlsImpprod6200771

              I use the Drying Lotion for breakouts that have already surfaced but I also want a moisturizer that would prevent future breakouts that possibly haven't formed or surfaced yet. Would this be a good moisturizer for that purpose?

                Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin is designed specially for oily skin. You may also want to consider a skin care regimen geared towards oily/acne prone skin. Our Acne Starter Kit is our daily regimen collection designed to help oily/acne prone skin get and stay clear.

                A:

                Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin does provide very light hydration but it will not over dry your skin. Another great option for oily skin is A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer (Item #: 2209844). It delivers light hydration with exfoliating properties to improve radiance and texture.
