    I wash my face with a gentle cleanser, apply a light layer of toner, then apply a small amount over my face and neck. I've been using it a couple of days and so far I am happy with the results.

        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.

            • Bad Smell
            • Doesn't Absorb Well

            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.

                          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 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.
