      Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

      My skin is extremely oil and it's something I've struggled with my entire life. This is great for acne prone skin and someone looking to absorb that access oil throughout the day. I use it underneath my make up or just alone. Great buy! I use only Mario's skincare products and I love them.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

            This did moisturize my skin well, but it's way too greasy. It made my oily skin way oilier than it would have originally been. The product reminds me of sunscreen, and it's really hard to rub completely into my skin. There were a lot of white streaks leftover that I had to rub in good, and it just left my face feeling sticky afterward.

                    Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

                    I love the Mario line. I like his face masks most. I have combo acne prone skin that reacts to many products - fortunately I can use Mario products, I use proactiv minus the third step lotion, it just does not agree with me, so I was looking for something to replace that. This unfortunately was not it. It was a bit too greasy for my already oily face. I've wanted to give it another go since returning the first time, maybe I will because I love other products by Mario so much. It was good, but not really what I was looking for. It does absorb quickly, it just did not seem to be - moisturized but back to my skin - that's what I wanted!

                    • Q:

                      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?

                        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.
